Reds Alehouse – North Liberty’s Neighborhood Pub

Reds Alehouse opened its doors in North Liberty, Iowa in 2009 and has been a beloved neighborhood spot ever since. Focusing on craft beer, craft food, and excellent service, Reds has become known for its extensive tap list, delicious flatbreads, amazing patio, and lively happy hour scene.

With 28 rotating taps, you’ll always find a mix of the best local, regional, and national craft beers on draft. The knowledgeable staff can help any beer lover, from novice to expert, find something new to love. Reds also offers a wide array of craft cocktails, wines, and signature mules.

The menu features fresh, locally-sourced ingredients transformed into creative flatbreads, burgers, salads, and entrees. Guest favorites include the corn and bacon chowder, fish tacos, and the can’t-miss crazy goat.

Reds’ patio provides the perfect place to enjoy the filtered sunshine while enjoying good food, good drinks, and good company. Shade, unique art pieces, and a lively vibe make it one of the best patios in the Iowa City area.

From Sunday brunch mimosa flights to beer dinners and release parties, Reds offers regular special events. The party room also provides a great spot for private gatherings.

For over a decade, the Swift family and dedicated staff have worked to make Reds Alehouse a comfortable neighborhood restaurant and bar where locals love to eat, drink, and gather.

World’s most delicious Brussel Sprouts. Friends efficient waitress. Assistant manager stopped by to see how we liked the food and experience. Gave us free Haynes ice cream when she heard it was my Birthday.

Always love Reds. Had Cadillac margaritas. Pricey drink but so delicious. Most drinks are 50% for happy hour 3 - 6pm. Tai chicken flatbread is my favorite meal.

I’ve been coming here for YEARS. It’s always a hot spot for locals. The patio is big and welcoming. I truly come here for their crazy goat appetizer. SO GOOD. Can’t find any other restaurants that serves this amazing app.

The only criticism I have is that the music is loudly played. Then top that off with it patrons conversations, it just makes it really hard to hear my server as well as having a conversation with whomever I am with. I would have to shout to have a conversation ????

But other than that the food is great. The service is decent. Atmosphere is debatable ????

We meet our parents here to eat and catch up. The food is great and depending what time you come there is not a wait. We have loved everything we have ordered and the staff has been more than polite and accommodating with certain needs that we have. Their soups are delicious but we have noticed that the French onion soup is not consistent… sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s absolutely delicious.

Once again, this place nailed it. Never dined in doors, but decided to have dinner this time. We usually go outdoors for lunch during the nicer weather. Wanted to try the burgers. Did NOT disappoint! Really, really good burgers! Love the fries. Daughter enjoyed her twisted Mac n cheese. Would definitely come back to try the other burgers! Lighting was a little dark in the room that wasn't the bar. We did dine at night, so might be different during the day. Restrooms were clean.
