Autumn is upon us. So what does that mean for you (and us)?

1. We will keep outdoor dining open as long as people are dining. At this time, we will not be installing heaters or closing in any outdoor area 100% (subject to change). That defeats the purpose of outdoor dining. We will have propane fire-pits and maybe the occasional heated area if it works and the people are coming. So if it's chilly, please bundle up or opt to dine indoors.

2. The Raven is one of the most spacious places you can dine. We have over 8,000 SF+ on two floors for indoor dining. We can easily space bar seating, tables and isolate larger groups (up to 10 per table starting next week). If you want to be even safer inside, wear your mask unless you are eating and drinking. We will be opening the second floor for general bar/dining if business warrants it.

3. We are still booking small events (up to 25 people) inside on both the first and second floor. Socially distant seating will be in place for events and those groups will have a private space.

Here are our general guidelines for dining with us.

-No reservations for groups smaller than 6, and even then...
reservations are a request and we will do our best to accommodate.
-Tables are limited to 10 guests (10!).
-Masks must be worn when you enter the building and are out of your chair. We respectfully request that you wear them while interacting with staff.
-Any guest who is disrespectful to our staff and/or not following our guidelines will be asked to leave.

We are hoping for a safe, healthy & successful fall and winter. We will do our part, please do yours.

To our awesome friends and customers-

Starting today (and for remainder of global pandemic) we will no longer be accepting reservations for parties under 6 guests. (Walk-in groups of any size welcome any time we are open)

This decision comes as we have had some of our staff members yelled at, spoken down to and honestly just berated over the last couple of months.

Enough is enough.

We will not have our staff treated like that.

We have great staff members, love our customers and are all just doing the best we can to get through this together.

If you are someone who likes to go to restaurants and speak down to the staff, find another place to dine.

For larger groups of 6+ guests you may email or message us and we will find a spot for you.

For all others, we have over 100 outdoor seats and 100 indoor on the first floor alone (maintaining spacing). There is not often a wait for a table, and when there is...it's not long. You can also choose to wait for a specific area if you prefer.

Be kind.

Keeping it real. xx-Your Raven Crew

A big shout out 📢 to The Red Raven for providing the perfect backdrop for my promotional video! The view 👀 from the back deck is spectacular! 💝🙏😊
First Visit. The waitress was great, the food was great, prices were normal. The bartender, who had a strange hairdo, was not in the least interested in serving customers. For some reason there were approx. 15 small children there, turning it into a chucky cheese atmosphere. Maybe I will go again, maybe not.
Can't stop "raving" about the Red Raven! They hosted a special event for us this weekend, and it was just perfect from start to finish! Everyone raved about the food and the atmosphere. The event coordinator, Jenifer, to the staff that took care of us for the afternoon, couldn't have been more helpful, professional, and exceptional in their care for us and our guests. Have your event here! You will NOT be disappointed.
Had a wonderful event at the Red Raven this weekend. Can't "rave" enough about the entire experience! Everyone loved the food, the atmosphere, and we received EXCELLENT care from the event coordinator, Jenifer, to the staff. They took excellent care of us. Exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend having an event here. You won't be disappointed.
Wait staff is horrible at this place no customer service or sh*ts given
This place is brutal sat at the bar for 20 min no sign of the wait staff
My boyfriend and I ate at The Red Raven last night. Our meal was a struggle, however, our waitress and the manager were AMAZING! We were talking about not going back, but when we left, we were in complete agreement that we would definitely be back. The food was very tasty and the atmosphere was fun! Definitely recommend!

Only negative was that my husband's salad was a bit small for the price. My burger was excellent! It was done rare (which what I like), had just the right amount of crispy onions, good quality thick bacon, nice cheddar cheese and the aioli put it over the top. The fries were also really very good as they had a nice herb blend and I think truffle oil. The beer selection was good. We went at an odd time 2:45ish today, Saturday so there was no wait and prompt service.
Just had a delicious meal at Red Raven. The huntsman special was venison which was perfectly prepared! The monkfish was also delicious. Definitely recommend!
I just watched your Purple Table on Fox 25 News. What an amazing idea. Thanks!!
Thank you for the purple table!
