This is our go to for good Mexican fare. Indoor and outdoor seating...weather permitting. They get pretty busy in the summer so plan ahead. Outdoor area is very cool. Just all around good food with good service...what you would expect from a decent restaurant.

We have been to the Roadhouse several times and it never disappoints. Bart was our server today and he was outstanding. He selected me the steak and shrimp fajitas that is featured in the Grand Traverse Dining Guide. It was great. The Roadhouse has a very nice menu and a good bar with local craft beer. This is a busy... More

We come here every time we are at Crystal skiing. The service and atmosphere is better than most but the food is second to none.

Great margaritas and service. Nice variety of choices on menu. Expect to wait for a table--away a crowd. Outside seating great.

Don't let the small town deceive you, they know what they're doing. Wonderful tasty Mexican dishes. Service is excellent, the food is better. We tried the the empanadas for an appetizer, a Chilean Pastry, absolutely delicious. We then ordered the Roadhouse skillet and the Wet Burrito Platter, both exceptional. Outdoor dining is available which includes an outdoor bar.(and preferred by... More

I have eaten here several times on trips to Northern Michigan and always found the ingredients to be fresh and the cooking authentic. No complaint at all. Just wish they had Wifi with a stronger signal

We (my husband & I) have been to The Road House - maybe 4 times. Each time, the service was great and the food was awesome! I only wish that they were open earlier than 4:00pm! Everything that we've eaten there has been great! The service has always been great too. I have nothing bad to say about this place... More

Love this place. Very good margaritas and good beer selection. We always start with the empanadas mmmm. Service has always been great even though it can get pretty busy in season but wort the wait. A nice little gem in the north. They have a nice tiki bar patio in the summertime

I've been going to The Roadhouse since the beginning, first as a local and now as a must stop every visit home. I love, love, love the staff and food. I recommend creating your own dinner of a chili rellano, 2 cheese enchiladas and beans and rice with guacamole. Top it off with a margarita (house are good, top shelf... More
