This place is OK, every time I have gone in it has been very crowded, but the bad kind of crowded, like very meat market-ish and yuppy. It was just so-so with me. The service was...

Beer 3/17/2009

Lot of beer on tap, great locale in Fremont by the market. It gets really busy and rowdy Friday nights and weekend. Good to chill but hard to actually carry conversations. But this place is famous and popular. Everyone know it and they are famous for all the beers. Good is decent. Their lunch menu looks tasty, I will go back there again during lunch and check out the quieter scene and enjoy some time with friends. more

Good pub type food 10/2/2006

After wandering around the Fremont Sunday Market we stopped into the Red Door for lunch. I had the fish and chips, which were greasy, but delicious. My husband really enjoyed his mushroom burger, and we thought it was a nice touch that you could get a salad or chips instead of fries. I went with the fries, however, because they were hand-cut and delicious! When in Fremont, definitely give his place a shot. more

Sangria, Sunshine & Sliders... 8/28/2006

I stopped by the Red Door on Saturday afternoon for some Sangria and ended up ordering their Sliders. These are 4 mini burgers and they are absolutely delicious. I think it would have been possible to eat about 15 of them. Their Sangria is served by the pitcher and for $15 you get 4 pint glasses worth. It's refreshing, packs a decent punch and is not too sweet which makes it just about perfect in my book. Enjoy. more

Red Door in Fremont 4/9/2006

I don't get to Fremont often but I always like the Red Door for a pint. They've got lots of beers on tap, a good menu, couple TVs with sports going. The crowd and the staff are always laid back and friendly. The place is pretty big so even if it's full it doesn't feel too crowded. more

Old Cornerstone (literally) of Fremont night life 3/5/2006

The Red Door is a historic landmark - so much so the whole building has literally been picked up and moved to make room for newer, swankier, Fremont "improvements" *twice* in its hundred-year-plus history. In the summer of 2005, the addition of a new partially-covered, heated(!) outdoor bar on the big patio made it one of the most popular places to meet friends, see and be seen on Thu-Fri-Sat nights in Fremont. It's also a great place to have lunch on weekends, where you can enjoy the weather, a drink or two, and partake in some fascinating people- (and dog-) watching overlooking the popular Fremont Sunday Market. With the smoking ban now in effect, the Red Door has changed a fair bit on the inside too - it's much less crowded on weeknights, and is somewhat more tolerable on the crowded cold weekends, when it regularly becomes an annoyingly just-out-of-the-fraternity party- and pickup- bar for people from far-off lands like UDistrict, Bellevue and Renton. The bartenders are uniformly excellent - often, and dependably, relied on by regulars to mix up a custom "something good" - and there is a great variety of microbrews on tap, often with tasty "beer-of-the-month" pints for $3.25. There's a side room fun to reserve any night for gatherings of up to ~30, and lots of places to sit bigger groups of up to 4-10 if you score them early. Music is bartender's choice, but is often well suited to the crowd at any given time. Food is fairly inexpensive typical pub food, but has some notable items - I like the big Cobb salad when you add the tasty seared tuna, the grilled turkey-swiss sandwich makes for a warm tasty-greasy sponge for a night of sessioning good beer, and the nachos (the menu touts "we layer the cheese throughout!") are good to pick at if you're with a crew. You can get most of the above just about anywhere - but one thing I like to order to on the rare occasions when there's an obvious weight-watcher or vegetarian next to me at the bar is the infamous "Burgersaurus Rex" - Bacon, cheddar, grilled mushrooms, onions, and with a fried egg on top - there's no putting that slippery thing down, once you pick it up, until your heart freezes up right along with the smile on your face. The Sasparilla BBQ burger and fish 'n' chips are popular too, served with excellent vinegar-thirsty hand-cut french fries. The Red Door has one of the more authentic thick-and-chunky New England Clam chowders in the city, served with good bread. If you don't like crowds, or being bustled by lots of dudes looking for love in all the wrong places, this probably isn't your best bet to hang all Fri/Sat night. However, if you have friends in from out-of-town to catch up with mid-week, or you want to catch lunch in Fremont on the weekends just off the Burke-Gilman trail, the Red Door is great option for a beer and a bite to eat. more

Great local pub in Fremont 12/10/2005

Judy's Book, Zillow.com, MPire, and Inrix had the second 5-Minute Jobbing event there on 12/8/05. The staff were extremely helpful, the food was good, and the selection on tap was terrific. On a summer day, the Red Door's deck becomes a hub of liesurely people watching and beer sipping. Check it out if you're in the area. more

Solid Fremont Bar with great food 12/8/2005

I've now been to the Red Door a few times. They have an excellent large patio bar that gets great evening light and is a fun place to grab a beer while the sun goes down. The interior is comfortable with a few great wood bars. Their pulled pork sandwich is excellent, and they have a strong beer selection. The staff is friendly and laid back, making it all around an enjoyable destination. I haven't been there on a weekend, so I can't quite respond to some of the other comments. more

Classic Fremont Pub 12/7/2005

I had a great experience at the Red Door. The place wasn't too crowded on the night we were there. Food was good and I recall the prices being a bit lower than the average Seattle pub. It's big size and L shape helps it accommodate lots of people without feeling crowded. If you're looking for a happy hour option or meetup spot in Fremont, check them out. more

too pricey for not enough 9/22/2005

This place is OK, every time I have gone in it has been very crowded, but the bad kind of crowded, like very meat market-ish and yuppy. It was just so-so with me. The service was ok, but I am not a fan of working all day and having to stand with a beer. I had a sandwich that was pretty good, but nothing outstanding. I would rather sit down and pay good prices in a more laid back environment. Not very original. more

not a happy drinker 9/14/2005

I did not enjoy myself at this Fremont bar. It was far too noisy, smoky, and crowded for my taste- I couldn't even hear my friends at the same table. I did not think my drink was that great and the bathroom was a mess the night I went. There are other places I would rather go, to actually talk to the people I'm with rather than shouting across a sea of strangers. more

Too Crowded 8/16/2005

I've been here twice and both times this place was way too crowded. It was THE place to go for a while and now it is the place people go to hoping someone cool will show up. Both times that I went the place with packed with guys. Just guys. I don't recommend going here on the weekend. A week night might be better. more
