About the restaurant

With two floors, as well as a patio and private dining room, we welcome guests looking for a unique space for game day, date night or an evening out with family and friends. Soon we’ll be offering takeout, so Red Tops Rendezvous can be delivered to your door!

First time coming to red top. Got the Brussel sprouts which were really good! We got the brick and Morty which was also really good but both food options had hot honey so both were sweet. Next time i would chose one without the sweetness. But overall place was very clean service was good and I’ll definitely be back!
