This was our first time visiting. The staff was jovial and friendly, very chill vibes. The peach cobbler drink is a must try! Happy hour ends at 6:30 M-F (a plus in my book). We had a little bit of many things. Please do yourself a favor and order the vegan meatballs (sauce is sooo tasty), the red snapper was so light and seasoned well, as well as the catfish. I need to visit again on Tues or Thurs to taste the fried green tomatoes.

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday with 6 other friends. The food and drinks were great. The server had a good start but began making Tik Tok videos which delayed part of my tables delivery of appetizers. Everything took a turn once the server lost interest in serving us. We all were given a half of glass of water and never got a refill of the carafe. Overall We loved the Red Star but they need a more mature staff that is attentive of the people coming for the experience.
