We pride ourselves on being a small town European style restaurant which draws the best from several countries. German food is the primary focus, with the best Wiener Schnitzel of any Rhode Island restaurant. A large selection of wonderful German and Belgian beer also grace our authentic porcelain beer towers. For those who are not looking for a German dinning experience we also feature several Italian and French dishes and even a Portuguese little neck appetizer paying homage to our local Portuguese heritage. For New Englanders, our fish is fresh and local so you can enjoy fresh fried sole, instead of frozen fish and chips.
Redlefsen’s is most famous for our Oktoberfest celebrations. Traditionally we begin our Oktoberfest the last Wednesday and Thursday in September and extend the celebration every Wednesday and Thursday through the end of October. During this season, Redlefsen’s transforms itself into a beer hall with accordion players and the Alpen Blumen Bavarian Dancers.
Overlooking the water front at Independence park, and in the heart of downtown Bristol, Rhode Island, Redlefsen's is comfortably elegant. Whether in our dining room, the lounge, or the function room, hand-painted murals of Bavarian villages and the whimsy of the Cuckoo Clock by the fireplace enhance a wonderful dining experience. The wooden ceilings are draped with tiny clear lights which are reflected in the large picture windows overlooking Bristol harbor. The finishing touches are the stained glass windows in the lounge and the grape festooned skylight in our dining room.
Our Heidelberg function room was completed in the Spring of 2010, and is as warm and attractive as the rest of the restaurant and can accomodate up to 60 people. It is an ideal location for a rehearsal dinner, shower, birthday, office or holiday party. We can offer parties choices from both our regular and function room menu.
