I have many fond memories of the Miami Red Coach Grill and the people that worked there. It was my first job out of college. John Foley hired me as an assistant manager in 1976. Natalie was the hostess and Bud was the chef, John Bielecki was the other assistant manager. I also worked in Orlando and was the manager in Ft. Lauderdale when the restaurant closed because of a fire. The food, the service, and the people were outstanding and the prime rib was the best I ever had.

I was a young lawyer in 1972 . Our office was at 19 West Flagler Street. Once a month we had a firm meeting. Afterwards we would go out to eat as a group. I remember like it was yesterday going to the Red Coach for my first time and falling in love with the place. The ambience, the decor and the food. The expression" they don't make them like they used to" is so appropriate when talking about the Red Coach Grill

My stepfather was a manager there in the 70's, John Foley. My favorite was rare prime rib.

Bob, I thank you for writing in and telling us of your experience and memories at the Red Coach Grill. My aunt and her boss used to dine there at lunch when his company used to be a couple of miles away in the 50's and 60's and they always had a great meal there. Thank you for providing your e-mail address in case anyone wants to contact you.

not only was it there before Jordan Marsh was built but they saddened my childhood when they removed the poney rides that were in operation on the site where they built JM!

Dinner at the Red Coach Grill was my first "real date" with my future husband. I was all of 17. He ordered a filet mignon, and having no idea what that was I ordered fried shrimp - I knew what that was!!

When I was a little girl , (no older than five,) in the 1960s, I ate an entire whole lobster here and received a certificate for my efforts that my parents promptly framed! We lived in Indiana and drove to Miami for vacation. Fond memories.

I have a Red Coach Grill Menu for sale from the late 50's.

It is in very good condition.

This restaurant was at this location before Jordan Marsh was built. We would on occasion eat here after a day of shopping at Sears-Roebuck, which was just a block or so south on Biscayne Boulevard. The Red Coach Grill chain was a more upscale group owned by Howard Johnson's.

That's the old Jordan Marsh Department Store behind the Red Coach Grill. We used to eat there on out outings to the department store.
