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.

The menu, customer service & environment are great. Unfortunately, for anyone in a wheel chair, there is just no way in or out of this restaurant. There r no ramps in or out. It stands high on a hill on 3 sides with outdoor decking all around but no way down. In the rear is the exit/entrance to the parking area which is above ground, assessable only by a steep staircase. My son walks with bilateral forearm crutches so we were able to eat here, but we will not be coming back, and less the restaurant becomes ADA compliant.

Nice place to be for New’s Years, live band, no lines, no cover, just warm smiling happy people. There are tables in the bar area, a ramp from bar to dinning area, no accessible bar seating. Excellent beer selection and pub grub. Also, covered outdoor cafe in the summer.

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.

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.

Where we parked in the parking lot there was a high step but other than that the parking wasn’t bad. There was almost no one at the aquarium the day we went, if you want to avoid the crowd go either after school hours or during the winter. Getting the tickets was easy and accessible, though the counter was kind of high. The main entrance is entirely outside so be prepared to dress for the outside weather, the inside exhibits are a good temperature. Everything was pretty accessible for me and my cane, there was an exhibit with stairs but it’s not a necessary part of enjoyment. The sea lion show is upstairs and there is an elevator. The bathroom I used had two doors which were kind of heavy but the bathroom itself was extremely clean. There are three touch exhibits, the ray tank, the shark tank, and the touch tank. The ray and shark tank were my favorites and if you pay a little at the information desk you can feed the rays. There were railings, benches, and interactive exhibits. Overall I’d say that this is a pretty good trip on accessibility and fun.

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.
