For wheelchair users Reds meets almost all Mass Accessibility Codes, from parking to bathrooms and interior seating. The accessible path of travel to the different parts of the restaurant is fine. The food is great with a good variety and reasonable pricing.

There is a good entrance to with wide doors and no stairs. There is good space in the restaurant for wheelchairs. The staff was very helpful opening and closing doors. The bathrooms are a bit small for turning and not great design of taps and such. It is a good idea to call them in advance and they will have everything prepared for you.

The entrance is wide and barrier free. There are several doors you can use, and when we left they had opened one of the front garage-type doors making entering and exiting even easier. There are no stairs. The bathroom (Men’s) is large enough for a wheelchair to turn around in. The toilet has two grab bars around it. The sink has long handles on the faucet. The door to the bathroom was wide, and it made for easy entry and exit.There is plenty of room to get around using any kind of mobility assistive device. There are few obstructions, and the aisles are wide. The chairs were easily removed from the table to accommodate a wheelchair or other device.
The staff was very nice. This is different than a sit-down restaurant, as you go from booth to booth to get your food. The only vendor who was not great was at Aunt Butchie’s. He ignored me when I approached the booth for a sample. Every other vendor was excellent to me, and the overall experience was phenomenal. I enjoyed my time there very much. They do not have Braille menus.

There is only one space for handicap parking which is not in front of the shop. The entrance to the building requires the use of stairs. There is no alternate route for wheelchair access.

Once inside the bathroom, a person in a wheelchair would not have enough room to turn around and close the door. The handles on the doors were knobs and not accessible without use of entire hand.

The counter for ordering ice cream was high up blocking vision to the person behind the counter (if in wheelchair) and it would be hard when asking for a sample. The register was easy to pull up to but was the same height as the counter which did not comply with ADA standards.

There was no sign for the restroom and no indication of handicap accessibility.

There was no sign indicating an emergency exit path to get out of the building.

The doors where heavy and the handle design made it hard to grip.

Second review BRAND NEW !! Just opened completely accessible !! Just very tiring!! Second floor cardo equipment!! Get on the elevator 1 floor lifting equipment. Ground level is your exit. You need your chair walkers, very tiring. When you enter your met with a drop rug that catches on your walker's legs pulling up the carpet. It's brand new why?? Once again I'm force to another Y!!! Opened up the parking lot much better design with hp parking, but just check times seniors take up all the spots. I Loved the old place one floor but now it's multi floor.

Part of the Porter Square Mall, accessibility at this ice cream shop is good overall. There is accessible parking in the mall parking lot, including van-accessible parking. There is a step-free accessible entrance (although adding an automatic door opener would make it better), and good circulation inside. The serving counter is a bit on the high side.

Great Gastropub. Both the food and Beer were terrific.

The AbleRoad website and iOS and Android applications allow people with disabilities and medical conditions - including those who use a wheelchair or have other mobility, vision, hearing or cognitive disabilities - and their families and caregivers to review any public space or business.
Each review helps people with disabilities "to know before you go" the accessibility of a restaurant or business.
Accessibility is required by law, but we know that is not always the situation. Don't be caught by surprise. Know in advance whether a place is accessible for people with your disability.
