About Red Hook Grill
The Red Hook name comes from our favorite marina in St. Thomas. Red Hook is where you can catch the ferry to St. John, charter a day sail or fishing trip. It also houses several restaurants and our favorite bar, Island Time Pub. We found ourselves hanging out there most nights on our recent trips to St. Thomas. Only fitting that we name our restaurant after our favorite place on the island. Our goal was to bring the island vibe and some of the food to Columbus. Most of the food in St Thomas is Americanized so Red Hook Grill’s menu is our interpretation. We hope you enjoy.

Red Hook Grill Ratings and Reviews

This little gem is a great find! The relaxed feel of this place makes you feel as though you're visiting a friend' s house for dinner. It's easy to miss it though, as it's tucked in off a main road in a business commercial district. Look for the red awning! The egg sandwich is out of this world and the delicious jambalaya more than enough to share. The service is the right mix of attentive, and not overbearing. Sincere suggestions are given if asked. Every time I'm here, I realize why this is one of my Grandview favorites.

This was our second visit to the Red Hook. As with the first, the overall experience was excellent. Service and food were outstanding. We have recommended Red Hook to others and will continue to do so. Only concern on this visit was somewhat of a "musty" smell but that could be due HVAC issues. Otherwise, another favorable experience.

I only thought this restaurants food was 1000 times better than anywhere else in Columbus, and have already sent many people to try it, including my friend, Jeff Allen, who is going tonight.
Keep making that Carribean bean soup, and the seared tuna, both out-of -this world, and I am also one of Columbus' pickiest eaters!

We were pleasantly surprised at this neighborhood gem. I had read about it, and love Grandview, so we took my 97 father, and all of us loved it. We'll be back. I loved the fact that I could have a breakfast sandwich at night, and they ordered the special - ribs, which were delicious. I saw some other things I'd like to try, so we will be back for sure.
Others Were Right!
Selected the Red Hook bases solely on the consistently positive reviews of others appearing on Open Table. Our experience justified that reliance! Food, service, ambiance, value and noise level were outstanding, although the latter might be due to the fact that there were only two other parties dining at the time of our visit (early Thursday evening). Street appearance is deceptive; this is a very good restaurant for a casual evening out; you won't be disappointed.

I wasn't sure what to expect, considering the specific location. But once we opened the door, it was exactly what we were looking for when celebrating a family member's 21st birthday! Food was EXCELLENT! Service was EXCELLENT! You can really tell the Owners have a hands-on approach, which always makes a huge difference in the success (or failure!) of a restaurant. The wine list was, in my opinion, the perfect variety -- not over-crowded or verbose, and the selections were just the kind I like to see in a local gem (ie. not typical chain brands or too esoteric).
Of important note is that it's difficult to find a perfect place to satisfy many different "diets," when dining out, and this place literally had something for everyone in party of 7: Vegan, no-carb, low-fat, FULL fat, Vegetarian, meat-a-holic and Miss Picky pants!
WE all LOVED IT!
A Solid Neighborhood Selection
You can tell the owner is fully invested in this restaurant, from the decor to the menu selections to the service, everything is a labor of love. The menu is quite diverse, providing options even for picky eaters. Yes, it can get a little loud when the restaurant is full, but that's a minor irritant. All told, it makes for a solid addition to your restaurant repertoire.
Red Hook Grill is a Grandview diamond
Love the food, service & vibe at Red Hook Grill. There is something for everyone - meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans. Whether you want a sandwich, salad or full meal -- you will find it here, and oh year....the Texas sheet cake is awesome!!!

While I want to live this place (good prices, nice wine selection, unique menu) I just can't. My shrimp was overcooked and rubbery and steamed broccoli served cold. Flavor was good though and the citrus vinaigrette on my salad wonderful. The service was slow, and inattentive. It has the feel of a new restaurant that needs to work out the kinks to be great.
Great night out!
My husband and I stopped by Red Hook Grill for a meal after work on a Thursday night. We were greeted immediately and seated. He ordered a beer and I ordered a Margarita. Quite yummy! We both ordered meals that included red hook potatoes (Fried to a crispy bite - quite yummy!) I got the tilapia with crab stuffing - he the the steak. Both were cooked perfectly - and my husband is particular. Our server was amazing. She was there when we needed her, checked to be sure everything was just as we liked it, made excellent recommendations, and made us feel very well taken care of. We took a slice of the Key Lime pie to go - and when we got home wished we didn't have to share, it was so good! Reasonably priced. We will be going back!
Our food was good. It was not spectacular. The service was fine. We were seated promptly. The best item for the four of us was the pita pizza appetizer. Everything else was just okay (beans and rice, jambalaya, crab-stuffed tilapia, bean burger). Clean restaurant. Friendly staff. This restaurant needs to add some WOW dishes to its menu. Due to the competition in our city, I doubt if we will return.
Hooked by the Hook!
Our New Years Eve dinner was incredible. All 6 of us enjoyed the food that we ordered. I have never had such a tremendous feast with the Barbeque Shrimp. The drink I had "Double ???" was also incomparable. Only major complaint - at 7 p.m. it was so very dark that I had to call my granddaughter to bring a flashlight. You should have flashlights available if you are going to have the room so dark. In addition, it was very cold. My brother joked that we were eating in a cave - cold and dark. Please remedy.
Splendid Seafood Selection
Very accommodating staff and energetic staff. Their menu has a nice selection ranging from hummus & veggies to cajun chicken, perfectly cooked steaks and of course as their name implies a variety of fishy finds. We had the smoked fish spread with vegetables & pita along with a steak dinner and crab stuffed tilapia. Our order came out in a timely fashion and each course tasted incredible. Service was superb and the ambiance was fun and warm with Island music softly accompanying the food helped to beat the chilliness of the outdoors. We will definitely be dining here again soon!
We were in Columbus for a show and found this gem!
I was in town for a show with my daughter and grandchildren. We were looking for a place that was vegan friendly and this place hit the spot. Service was quick and professional. Food for the adults and grandchildren was very good. You have to try it !

Food is amazing. I ordered the black bean burger and my boyfriend ordered the crab stuffed tilapia and we both loved our meals. The red hook potatoes are delicious too, which come with most entrees! We will definitely be dining at red hook grill again!
Vegan Friendly and Delicious!
This is a quaint little restaurant in an unsuspecting area. It has clean, modern décor and beautiful photos on the walls of the owners' travels. The menu is inspired by St. Thomas, where the owners lived for two years, and we were pleased to find there were plenty of vegan options.
We tried the Veggie Skins - a vegan take on potato skins, topped with broccoli, red peppers, and Daiya cheese. It had a little cup of hummus on the side - this tasted really good and you could tell that it was homemade - it was a bit thicker than I'm used to but the taste was so good it didn't matter. My husband had the Vegan Wrap - which consisted of hummus, roasted red pepper bruschetta, spinach, avocado, cucumber and lettuce in a sundried tomato tortilla. Although this looked HUGE, it was quite light and he was able to eat the whole thing and not feel stuffed. It came with a side of Red Hook potatoes - roasted potatoes with some fantastic seasoning.
The drink menu was really interesting, and I tried the Rum Punch - it took me back to a vacation my husband and I had before we were married. I was instantly drinking Rum Punch on the beach in Grenada..... Hubby had a beer, they do offer Gluten Free beer - that was a welcome surprise for him.
We were too full to get dessert, and actually didn't even ask if they had vegan desserts. Next time! Also, next time I want to try their Tofu Kebobs, which are described as "skewered with mushrooms, onions & peppers. served with rosemary garlic potatoes and broccoli." Other interesting vegan dishes: Pita Pizza, house made Black Bean Burger, Sloppy Vegan, Black Bean Soup, Black Beans & Rice. All of their salads can be made vegan and have the option to add tofu.
For non-vegans - they have some unique looking chicken, shrimp and fish dishes.

We really enjoyed our evening at red hook. Very much a neighborhood place. Four of us all ordered something different and all loved our meals. Two ordered off of the daily specials but all were great. We would recommend.
