It was very busy when I walked in at 5:30pm on a Monday. There was a long bar with two rooms with booths and tables and there was three TVs behind the bar on the wall with sports playing.

They sell their own growlers and fill them.

All the people behind the bar serving were very young looking women.

I liked how they have the glass rinser, but most of the servers were just getting the glass wet instead of waiting for the water to run off any dust or other particles that might degrade head retention or cause off flavors. Speed seemed more important to them. The two beers I bought for happy hour came to me with suds falling off the side of the glass dripping on the bar.

The beer temperature was ok, there wasn't immediate condensation on the glass and I could start drinking right away without letting it warm up to flavor enhancing temperature.

The food really looked great, I can imagine it taste great too, but I just had two beers.

A great place to check out. Service was good, foods were good.
Beer selection was pretty good and they had some harder to get tap beers.

Killer food and a really great bottle and tap selection which rotates regularly! They keep some older bottles and kegs aging in the basement and break them out for special events as well

Living in eastern Iowa can be tough on a young guy who loves craft beer.
Then I found out about Red's. This place is amazing. I mean come on with a slogan like "No crap on tap" whats there not to love.
I only gave 2 problems with Red's. 1st its an hour and twenty minutes away from my home town. Second its very loud and crowded inside. With 4 small children its tough to get there as much as I would like.
Plus always changing up what avaliable on tap.

We stopped here for a late lunch on the way home from a weekend in Minneapolis. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. Bar on one side of building and eating area on other side with a nice outdoor patio. Quality is very good and the service is very friendly and helpful. Beer selection is outstanding. I had the beer battered fish and chips and it was a huge order and very good. Other's in our group ordered the Angry Hamburger and turkey stack. Both were described as amazing. Value was very reasonable.
