I won't waste your time. Looking a romantic lunch, this is your place! Craving an awesome burger, this is your place. Don't like a wedge salad or blue cheese dressing...you will like theirs. Atmosphere, food, full bar, beer selection and service all excellent!

Enjoyed the food and service as usual. The traditional Red Coat burger is moist and tasty. It can be a bit sloppy but so worth it. Ask for an extra napkin and dig in. The Caesar Salad was large enough to share 3 ways. The...More

I came for the burger but my wife talked me into trying the pot pie and let me say i wasn't disappointed. The service was great and the food was great too. Can't wait to come back and try something else

Very good burger! I've been told that other menu items also good but the only reason I go is for their burgers. Be prepared to wait cause the place is usually crowded. Worth the wait!

Hands down the best burger in the area. I highly recommend the Piedmontese beef. It's super low in fat and tastes amazing. The fried mushrooms, french fries and onion rings are outstanding. You won't be disappointed!

You may have to wait for a bit but it is well worth it. Once seated the service is excellent and you can be assured that the food is fresh.

Just moving into the area and needed to find a good place for a break from unpacking. The reviews were good so we tried Red Coat Tavern and were not disappointed. Excellent Caribbean Seafood Chowder which had a nice spicy kick. We'll be back!

They don't take reservations, but they do a call ahead seating and all members need to be present when you arrive. There will still be a wait, but not as bad. I would suggest you call at least a hour in advance if you have... More
