Frequently asked Questions about our Restaurant
- I have a gluten allergy. Are there options for me?
Yes! We have options such as our new gluten-free pizza crust and pasta. Most of our menu can be adjusted to accommodate your special needs, and we will happily prepare your meal with the same care we do all of our menu items. Gone are the days where a special request was an issue. We like the fact that the food we serve is not pre-assembled and we can control the end product.
- Do you fry your foods with lard?
The short answer is No! This question is asked a lot because our fried food is so good. Lard makes fried food taste good. It also plugs up your arteries much faster and truly should not be allowed. Many other states have already banned it. At the Red Blazer Restaurant, we use only quality non-trans fat frying oils. Please keep in mind that frying is frying, but we do it in the "Healthiest" possible way. We keep it fresh and then use our spent oil to heat our hot water.
- Can we bring our own birthday cake?
This is our "Most Asked Question." The answer is "No," which makes some people angry, but there are serious concerns about this issue. Topping the list: Who made it and cared for it? What if it makes our guest sick? Also, we are a bakery. Why would cake be different than bringing your own steak or beer? Finally, what if the cake you brought was terrible and your guest thinks we made it – OUCH!
- Do you cater?
Yes! We have been catering since we opened our restaurant, and it remains a big part of our business. Our largest event was a BBQ for 1800 people. Our largest Lobster and Clam Bake served 800 and our largest formal wedding reception served 600. Our smallest event was for a party of two!
- Why did you stop doing entertainment on the weekends?
We still do entertainment occasionally, but we have discontinued the "every weekend routine" a few years ago. Essentially, entertainment is expensive when done correctly and the economics did not work for us. More importantly, it is not a proper fit for our facility on a regular basis. Our main focus is the customer coming here to eat and the transition of the venue created some problems.
- Do you serve Brunch on the weekends?
No! We stopped serving Brunch more than 10 years ago. Today we serve a Sunday Breakfast Buffet. Over the last ten plus years we have expanded it and perfected many of its offerings. You would be hard pressed to find a spread like ours anywhere nearby.
