Up two flights of stairs from the Red Stag Tavern is a deck that once offered a grand view of the waterfront. These days, condos and the top of a cruise ship will suffice.
Red Stag is a friendly pub with tasty pub food. I meet my friend and her mom here and since mama wants onion rings, that’s what we have. They’re quite light and actually not very greasy.
The lettuce in the Caesar Salad is fresh and it’s well adorned with cheese and bacon bits. The Pale Ale Battered Fish and Chips are excellent. The potato wedges are hot and the fish is lightly battered and tastes fresh.
My Spicy Brewmaster Burger with mozzarella and sautéed garlic mushrooms is a treat. This burger has a bit of spice and is cooked well. We enjoy our lunch except for the awful coffee my friend’s mom returns — but not exactly a tavern’s beverage of choice.
