Red Door Lakeland was the first wine bar to open in Lakeland back in 2009. Over time the popular wine bar made the transition to a full restaurant featuring craft beer, craft cocktails, wine and brilliantly prepared food. Red Door Lakeland favorites include Chicken & Waffles, Brisket Mac ‘n Cheese and Polk Belly BLT. Dine inside or sit on the bungalow’s front porch or patio.
