Red Lion Tavern

Red Lion Tavern  
2366 Glendale Blvd
Los Angeles

I've been to the Red Lion Tavern twice, both times just for a beer.  So, I finally went to Red Lion Tavern and ordered food.  Red Lion Tavern has been around forever.  I heard the current owner is Russian, but the menu is still the same.

Red Lion Schnitzel pork cutlet breaded and fried golden brown, served with mashed potatoes and red cabbage, $14.75.

The breading was very soggy and greasy and lacked seasoning.  The pork was dry and lacked flavor.  While this was a good sized portion, it wasn't worth the price because it wasn't good. 

The mashed potatoes were good, nice flavor, nicely seasoned and creamy.  I didn't touch the red cabbage.

Service was among the WORST I have ever experienced.  The old hag server was rude, not friendly, and should not work in customer service.  I tried to give her a break because she was the only server working the downstairs bar area, but she was so rude.  She has a heavy accent and hard to understand at times.  So when I asked her what a dish was at another table, I had to repeat it again.  She copped an attitude and was a bitch.  Things only got worse after.  She copped an attitude when I asked for more water.  I mean, come on if she hates her job that much, get another job or go back to German. 

I will never go back to the Red Lion Tavern again.  Combine bad food with bad service and you lost a customer.
