The Red Onion

2511 Main St.
Rangeley, ME, 04970, United States
TEL: (207) 864-5022

This red building, situated on a stretch of land between City Cove and Haley Pond, previously housed an IGA grocery store and, in 1958, even a co-ed sauna. Since 1970, when Skender and Bruni Liedl gained ownership, it has been known as a place for home style Italian food with an emphasis on pizza, from classic combinations like tomato sauce and cheese to more progressive pies like the Reuben, topped with pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss, and 1000 Island dressing. Burgers are also popular at the Red Onion, as are sandwiches such as the Chix Parmesean, breaded chicken topped with their homemade red sauce. The ho-hum interior features square tables, simple wooden chairs, and rustic gray paneling, and during the summer months, the tables on the deck are popular "gets."

Insider Tip:

In freezing weather, adjacent Haley Pond touts free public ice skating and ice hockey.
