    Excellent as usual. Been here so many times and have never had a complaint. Food is consistently good and the vibe is great. Went to the pool hall next door for after dinner drinks and it was equally awesome. Wish I didn't live so far or I'd be here every weekend.

    Food was OK, presentation appealing. Fish was over cooked to the point of the edges curling over and yardbird fried a few minutes too long so crust was hard to eat. Cornbread was delicious, overall I was disappointed as I really looked forward to dining here.

    It’s always a nice vibe at RR on a Friday night. The service was good but it did take a bit long to get our food after we ordered.

    Red Rooster OvertownResponded 3 days agoThank you for being our guest and for sharing your feedback.

Timely and efficient service is a crucial aspect of any dining experience, and we are sorry we let you down.

    The music was too loud, we had to yell in each other’s ear to hear our conversation. We heard the conversation from the table next to us because they were yelling to talk. The food options were limited, please expand your options (Chicken Breast, Turkey, Pork, vegetables). Overall the experience was good!

    As always the food at Red Rooster was spectacular. The flavor of the snapper in a gooseberry jam broth was probably my favorite taste of the year. Unfortunately, the service was not up to par. We waited an unreasonable amount of time until our drinks were delivered to the table, after my dining partner's appetizer was served. My appetizer along with the amuse bouche came several minutes later. The dining room on a Tuesday evening was far from crowded. In fact, only a handful of tables were occupied, so there was really no excuse for the spotty, disorganized service. I will, nonetheless, return to Red Rooster for the ambiance and the wonderful food.

    Red Rooster OvertownResponded on September 15, 2022Thank you, DrEat, for bringing this information to our attention, we're truly sorry for the lack of service you received during your recent visit, and we're thankful you brought this to our attention. Despite how busy our restaurant is or isn't, our service should always be on point, and we will address our Tuesday evening team when we see them. So glad you enjoyed our snapper dish (it's a winner in our book!), and we hope to have you as our guest again one day soon. Warmly, The Red Rooster Team

    I wish the food was a bit simpler. At that price point I expected the food to be more flavorful as well. The cornbread was good, star of the meal for me. I would go back for drinks and a starter.

    Red Rooster OvertownResponded on September 13, 2022Thank you, Maia, for being our guest and sharing your experience. We undoubtedly wanted your meal to be outstanding, for flavor-forward dishes are Chef Samuelsson's culinary signature, and we are sorry to have let you down.

    I went in for Miami spice on Labor Day and it didn’t say anywhere they weren’t doing the special since it was a holiday so that SUCKED! However, the food and service was really good. The vibe was amazing and I’m sure for dinner the bar area is a must! I’d skip the Chicken Sandwich but the corn bread is FIREEE
