After a visit to the Suffolk County Farm, we wanted someplace nearby for a very late lunch/early dinner. The Red River Inn turned out to be a good choice.
We drove up to a paved parking lot with no discernible, accessible spaces. Two stone steps lead to the single door entry. If you cannot do the steps, you can easily enter from the ramp at the wooden deck on the side.
Once inside we were warmly greeted by the lovely woman doing triple duty as hostess/bartender/waitress. As we expected, being 3:30 pm, there were just a few patrons at the bar. We were seated at one of the four booths here. The large, full-height bar seems to be the centerpiece of this venue. All of the other tabes and chairs were not arranged in any order. Our sense is that they are arranged according to what is happening on a particular evening. Based on the posters al around, the Red River Inn has lots of music every night. Check out their website for further info.
Back to the food and service. The website states that they use “fresh ingredients from local farmers.” Our choices certainly seemed to be fresh! The menu, although not large, is varied, and there are great specials every day. Our hamburger. and chicken sandwich with sautéed, fresh mushrooms, were quite good. The very generous sides of french fries were perfectly done! Our server (the person doing triple duty), couldn’t have been nicer, making sure everything was to our liking and making sure we had everything we needed.
Unfortunately, when it came to the restroom, we were disappointed. Having been told on the phone that the restroom was accessible, we were sad to see that it is not. The stalls are quite narrow and do not have any handrails. The sink is not accessible either.
As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.redriverli.com, when planning a visit to “know before you go.”
