Having passed by occasionally as this Red Robin was being built, and having never been to any Red Robin. I decided to try it for lunch. Three handicapped (van)- accessible parking spaces are located on the side of the building. Curb cuts are near these spaces and at the other end of the sidewalk in front of the street-level, double door entrance. A small entrway and another set of double doors led me to the hostess/welcome area, where I was pleased to see some benches.
I had no idea of what to expect. I new nothing about Red Robin. I was delighted to see the “fun” decor. High ceilings, bright colors, smooth concrete floor and a variety of seating options in an interesting layout, contributed to my feeling of being in a fun environment. I’m always happy to see a full-height bar that has a portion to accommodate not only wheelchair users, but those that cannot manage the high stools. There are also high and low tables and booths throughout. Rather than the bar/lounge area being in the front or on the side, the bar separates two dining areas, making each of them more intimate and less noisy. There is ample space between tables for easy navigation. If you have kids with you, or even it you don’t, there are a variety of chalkboard games to borrow and play with at your table. They are near the restroom area. Nice – and different! The multi-stall restrooms have a large, handicapped stall, baby-changing stations and both “regular” and “kid-height” sinks. The door is easy to open. My server was lovely, asking me if I had ever dined with them before and helping me to figure out the large menu. He was very attentive and made sure that everything I ordered was to my satisfaction. A real gentleman!
Red Robin began in the 1940s and now has over 500 locations. If you want the story of their name and history, visit their website, www.redrobin.com. One of the really nice things I learned on their website is that they offer their customers the “Gift of Time.” “When you dine with us, you’re welcome to stay with us. For as-long-as-you’d like. No glares, No stares. No server rushing you out the door. We call it the “Gift of Time.” (website)
