This was the starting place for a bar crawl event we attended. The vibe was nice. If you're familiar with a place called "Busboy & Poet" in DC/MD it gives off that same environment with a hookah lounge option. Didnt stay long but from what we experience, it gives real chill/kickback.
This was our Happy Hour spot of choice on a Friday afternoon after work. There was plenty of available seating when we arrived. Our server greeted us promptly and took our food and drink orders. The portion sizes are generous. The brussel sprouts were definitely the star of the night. We ended up staying for about 5 hours, ordering drinks throughout the night. Things were going great until it was time for our server to leave for the evening. She checked us out and specifically stated that the tip was not included on the bill. However, when we received our receipts, there was an 18% service charge that was added, even though we only had 4 people in our group. All of us had left an additional tip, not knowing the service fee was charged. By the time we realized it, our server was gone for the evening. She also did not assign another server to us even though we were still planning to order. We let the manager know and she immediately worked to make it right. Our service for the remainder of the evening was impeccable. The music was good, although the volume was a little low on the side where we were sitting. I would definitely plan to return in the future....although I will keep a much closer eye on my bill. Pro-tip: Plan time for parking. There is a free lot nearby but it is pretty small..
I love the entire vibe in this place. The entire staff are inviting and amazing. Everyone has a smile on their face and that goes a long way! My lady and I came here because we heard great things and we were not disappointed. This our new spot! We went on a Thursday, which was a nice R&B theme. We smoked, we sang, and we ate good too! If youre looking a for a chill spot without the drama, put this place on your list!!
My experience at Red 28 is always a really great experience thanks to the Manager/ Bartender Sherm. Every time I come to Red with friends and family we are taken care. The drinks are always great, hookahs are smooth and good. I am defiantly a repeat customer because of him. Even if I am not able to attend I can feel safe to refer my friends and family to him knowing he will take care of them. He is the best man for the job.
Update: Visited again and got a great server named Fresh, who I later found out was the manager. She was awesome and gave us our drinks very quickly and made sure we were good. Also the bathrooms were clean. Updated to 3 stars. This place could be better if the service was quicker. The wait staff takes awhile to get to your table and very rarely does frequent checks to make sure you do not need anything. I am not sure if they are understaffed or not but with the staff they have they should be able to do frequent checks at the tables and sitting at the bar. I had to wait almost 20 minutes for the wait staff to come back to my table. Secondly, the bathrooms are rarely cleaned throughout the night. The ladies room did not have any tissue in the bathroom and there was tissue on the bathroom floor. This spot could definetly benefit from someone being on site making sure the bathrooms stay cleaned. On the upside of things the servers are friendly and the food is good and inexpensive. If this spot works on it's efficiency and cleanliness and it could easily be a 5 star.
