Located in downtown Lakeland, the Red Door is one of central Florida’s premier destinations for fine American dining.

Since our opening in 2009, we’ve honored our commitment to bring a culinary experience to central Florida that was authentic, principled, and progressive. While we’ve certainly evolved in the last decade, our commitment remains unchanged. We pride ourselves on our scratch kitchen, craft beverages, classic cuisine with a modern twist, and a pretension-free atmosphere. Melding our values and professional experience into a creative expression, we’ll do our best to help you feel at home. The front porch of our renovated historic home offers a beautiful view of Lake Morton, is steps away from the Polk Museum of Art, and is conveniently nestled in the midst of central Florida’s most unique attractions.

Our team is welcoming, knowledgable, and passionate about providing our guests the best in food and service. Owner, sommelier, and in-house expert Richard DeAngelis is guided by his love and knowledge of wine, craft beverages, and food. His extensive industry experience, garnered through years of academic and experiential education, is a gift. Chef Lucy Cortes-Castaneda has the edge of a New Yorker, the creativity of an artist, and the culinary skills of a true chef. Under Richard’s guidance, our bartenders ensure our beverage program offers the very best in eclectic, hand-crafted wines and cocktails. Eschewing national brands, we value independence and integrity in a way that truly honors our staff, vendors, and guests.

Stop in and experience creative + casual + craft fine dining at Red Door Lakeland – we’ll make sure you’re taken care of.

Don’t Just Take Our WOrd For it

This place is incredible!
Not only are the drinks fantastic but the food is just as delightful! The decor is perfect for a date night or a friendly get together with indoor and outdoor seating.

– Sara

My husband and I came across this place for date night, AND FELL IN LOVE. Wonderful food, wine/spirit selections (if that’s your thing), and very neat vibe….This place is currently one of our fav spots for date night…HIGHLY RECOMMEND . – Hannah

On a perfect Saturday with great weather and a lovely breeze it was impossible not to enjoy the hospitality of Rich DeAngelis and his staff at the Red Door. Nice adult beverages and delicious noshes were the order of the afternoon. – Neal

Upscale food in a cool, casual setting. Food was expertly prepared and tasted great.  Service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive.  Our waiter, Sumner, was knowledgeable about the menu and about the restaurant, in general. He provided us with great suggestions and recommendations. – Berton

Love the seasonal eclectic menu. Porch seating is more casual, inside aiming toward intimate. Good beer and wine selection. Chef takes great pride in his culinary ability…as he should. – Dawn

Went for the 1st time for our 4 year wedding anniversary and could not have picked a better spot. The entire staff in fact had an upbeat attitude and seamed to work happily and efficiently together. The restaurant itself is very clean and well maintained. As a restaurant manager with 20 years in the industry I can say this was one of our best dining experiences to date. – Sean

Sunday Brunch was incredible! Worth the trip no matter how far you have to travel to get there! – Keith

Always local, always craft



Ethos is a craft roastery seeking to make an impact in the lives of small farmers, and coffee lovers! They pride themselves in providing the most delightful, most impactful, coffee beans, and have recently joined in partnership with the Red Door

Their definition of coffee “greatness” goes well beyond taste & freshness – and extends to the story and impact behind each bean, to their scientific approach to roasting, and to the human connection they seek to make through every order.

“Our passion for coffee is only surpassed by our passion for making a difference – we hope to one day live in a world where no child has to sacrifice school for a life of subsistence in a coffee plantation – and Ethos is our way to make that possible… thank you for the opportunity to roast for you, and for choosing to BREW GREATNESS in the world with us”


All of the draught beer at the Red Door is directly imported from Grove Roots Brewing Co. Grove Roots is a fiercely local craft brewery and taproom located in downtown Winter Haven, Florida. Their mission is to create inventive, artisanal beers inspired by the traditions and tastes of Central Florida’s citrus past.

Through partnerships with major producers and mom-and-pop growers alike, they’re reclaiming the land and getting back to their roots. But let’s make one thing clear: they’re not just paying homage to an industry that once was. They’re here to celebrate what still is, savoring our citrus heritage with every sip.
