Red’s is located in Old Ramsay in southeast Calgary not far from the Stampede Grounds.
Old diner atmosphere with the original old floors and a nice industrial decor with lots of windows. They also have some cool artwork on the walls. They have 13-14 tables inside and a few more outside on the patio. There is a counter bar for about another 10-12 people can sit at.
It is very busy and full. They are very quick to clean off tables and get the next people seated. Staff very friendly and service was great. Within a minute of sitting down, our server was there with water and ready to take our drink order.
The servers were going non-stop. They were constantly on the move. The kitchen was fast paced as well, getting out quite a bit of food while we were there. Everybody seemed pretty happy with the food they were getting.
Today we ordered the vanilla latte and a london fog. Both drinks were pretty good.
There is lots of choices on the menu as well as a daily special, and they serve breakfast all day. They have some healthier choices on the menu and some not so healthy choices. Pretty much everything I seen coming past the table looked terrific.
Since breakfast is good anytime of the day, we decided to have breakfast this afternoon. We ordered a bowl of assorted fruit, the Ramsay Bennie which has artichoke, prosciutto with homemade hollandaise with a balsamic drizzle. We also ordered the Red’s Big Breakfast, which is basically bacon, sausage and eggs and comes with a pancake. The portions were very large. There was a huge portion of potatoes on our plates that we couldn’t even eat. Prices weren’t the cheapest but the food was really good.
I did see quite a few people ordering milkshakes, they must be good. They have some interesting alcoholic drinks including some what they call Boozy Milkshakes. I don’t even drink and I could see myself having one of these.
Parking is street parking so you may need to drive around a little bit to get yourself a spot.
Today we left Red’s very full and satisfied. Even though there will be a line up when you get there, it will be worth the wait.
