Similar to the Blue Note Grill in Durham, this place is great for good eats and live music. Been several times and not been disappointed. They even sold me my Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy beer glass !

The food here is amazing, with a menu that is locally-sourced and caters to almost every appetite or dietary need. That in itself should persuade you to visit for lunch or dinner. But the great live music options, from Bluegrass to Swing, and everything in-between makes this THE place to go for a great night out with friends or an... More

I learned the Pittsboro Roadhouse New Year's Eve Gala through the internet. When I called to make reservation way ahead, I was told to pay in cash at the door. That evening, I was told that the payment/check will be given by the waitress/waiter at the end of the event. My wife and I were seated with two other couples... More

We often visit our son who lives in the eastern rural area of Siler City. We have tried every restaurant nearby and I was delighted to find this one. The people are friendly but not overdoting and the food was delicious.

I really like the atmosphere of this restaurant and the great community outreach the owners do but the food is not much to write home about. If you want to go out for a drink and light snacks it's great especially when there's live entertainment. They need to work on menu and get a more creative chef.

This restaurant is good for casual dining throughout lunch and dinner. Salads and Sandwiches are offered at reasonable prices. Many items are homemade and very good. Fried Flounder Sandwich served with homemade chips was excellent on this visit as well as the Chicken Salad Sandwich. Nice portions as well. Evenings often provide entertainment, sometimes depending on the offering at a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stop at this unique eatery in downtown Pittsboro, NC. Atmosphere, food and staff were all 5 out of 5 stars and we cannot wait to visit again soon. An interesting configuration and use of an older building with a restaurant area in front and a more casual/relaxed lounge and bar area in the rear. Very thoughtful... More

We shopped for 8 days and got a week of groceries for $100. We went back for a few touristy things because we saw a lot of fun items to take home to North Carolina

The burger between 2 grilled cheese sandwiches was the big hit! We ordered salads, sandwiches, and burgers which pleased our group of 5 for Sunday lunch. The large back room for live bands and dancing looked like a lot of fun.

We went for hamburgers fries and beer. Bill and I enjoyed the lunch but the place seems to use frozen burgers. This is not bad but could be better if they tried

This family friendly restaurant has a kids menu, with a kids eat free offer on Wednesday nights when there is Open Mic & Karaoke.
