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
We were concerned when we first pulled up to Red Hook because it looked like a small "strip mall" kind of place. Inside is relatively small, but the experience was wonderful. We had a party of 10 for appetizers, drinks, meals and desserts and all 10 came out happy. Enjoyed the potato skins and separately an order of plantains for appetizers. Nice beer selection. A lot of seafood type options that appealed to a broad array of tastes. Cheesecake and key lime pies were very rich and tasty. Wonderful service. Overall very happy and will be back.
Overall we were pleased with our evening at Red Hook. We were a large party and they were able to accommodate us without difficulty. This is rare on a Friday evening. We were looking for fish options since this is the Lenten season. This was a good place to come with lots of options. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. Heard the Jambalaya was spicy. The only negative thing I heard was the hummus needed some flavor. Very bland. Drinks and meals were an excellent value. I would definitely return for more good food.
This was our first time to the Red Hook Grill. It was great!! I had the Jambalaya which was delicious. It was well seasoned, but not "spicy hot", which is the way I enjoy it. My other half had the Key Lime chicken with a Caribbean Vegetable Rice blend. This dish was excellent. Again, tastefully seasoned.
Our server was very attentive. Atmosphere is casual, relaxed, and quiet which allows you to hear each other's conversation.
We will definitely be back and bring some friends along with us!!
David, our server was from start to finish a gem. His suggestions were right on. We stared off with their handmade Margarita & Rum Punch...felt like you were on the beach.
My lime chicken & rice with veggies was scrumptious. Great flavors blended together. My husband got their Ribs & being a smoker of meats, he is critical & was OH so pleased with these fabulous, flavorful ribs! The homemade KEY lime pie melted in your mouth...so Yummy. We will be back
The special occasional was valentines day. I had never been to the Red Hook Grill before so I was sort of nervous taking my significant other there. Once we entered the restaurant we were very impressed with the atmosphere and decor.
The menu had a wide range of wonderful selections and our food was delivered fast and was very tasty. We will be telling our friends about this wonderful please and return in the future.
We didn't know about this place until we were given a gift card by a friend who highly recommended the Redhook Grill. Now we know why. This dinner was one of the nicest my wife and I have had a long time. The atmosphere was classy and sophisticated, but casual and comfortable at the same time. Seating was immediate for reservation time. Server was prompt, personable and made excellent recommendations. So many options on the menu looked good, we had a tough time choosing. Food and drinks again came promptly. We highly recommend the Redhook salad. All of the food was fresh, hot and tasty. We will gladly come back and have already recommended it to others.
A hidden treasure in Columbus! Location is close to many places of entertainment. My husband and I went here to celebrate his birthday and we will definitely be back! We were greeted as we came in, our table was set, and they knew exactly who we were. We ordered the grilled chicken and the red hook burger. Both of us had the hand cut fries. All food was outstanding; chicken was juicy, burger was perfectly done, and the fries were excellent. We also ordered beer, in which we were pleasantly surprised by selection! The assumed owners would walk around periodically and ask about food and service. Additionally, they were clearing and prepping tables, which was admirable. The music was faint and conversations were quiet. It was the perfect place. We HIGHLY recommend!
Great service and our server was knowledgeable about the menu. Jambalaya was fabulous! Limited menu but that was fine as far as I was concerned.
One complaint though. The martini I ordered arrived with the glass being only about half full. The price was good but I'd much rather have a full-glass martini and pay more for it.
My family and I had a great experience dining at Red Hook Grill. This was our first time at the restaurant and while the menu is nothing revolutionary, the quality of the food in relation to the price was very good (the cocktails are a steal!). The Red Hook Grill is a great value and a cozy environment. The wait staff was exceptional, especially our server who was helpful and attentive.
My BBQ shrimp was delicious. I enjoyed the portion & the sides of potatoes & broccoli was good. My husband got the taco salad. Good flavor, but too much cheese & the tried bowl was not cooked in good grease. It was not good, but who needs the calories anyway??
Always enjoy dining at the Red Hook Grill. Food is always hot and delicious and the owner and staff are always very inviting. Don't pass up their Red Hook Potatoes as a side dish, or their egg sandwich. Also very accommodating to special dietary needs when cooking your food. Love it there.
Made a last-minute reservation through O.T. and were happy to arrive and be seated immediately. We weren't in the mood for wine, so I didn't notice/check the list. There is a full bar. We enjoyed a bowl of gumbo, and entrees of jambalaya, bacon wrapped grilled shrimp and the Red Hook shrimp salad. Each was delicious. We finished with key lime pie for dessert, which was delightfully tart. The restaurant is located in an unusual, industrial area, but there is plenty of parking. The interior is comfortable, with lots of photos showing off their inspiration in the Virgin Islands. We were glad to find Red Hook Grille and we'll likely be back.
The food was great. They have unique flavors, good portion sizes and the cajun pasta I had was so creamy and well seasoned. My waiter was nice as well and the drink that I had (their version of a pina colada) was great also. The jambalaya was good, but it was more brothy than I like (reminded me of a gumbo consistency). I usually like my jambalaya with rice as the base with the jambalaya on top
Had the smoked fish appetizer, delicious. One of the best we've had, would definitely recommend
My dinner was the fish tacos, the fish itself had a great flavor. With that being said, the accompaniments were just ok. Chopped tomatoes, lettuce and shredded cheese. The tacos would be better with a cabbage slaw. The rice and beans tasted like they had been sitting in a warming tray. Chewy texture.
Husband had the tofu scramble, said it was bland and could have used more sauce. His rice was also dry and chewy.
We did receive $5.00 off as the service was slow, didn't ask for, server took it upon himself to do, which was nice.
