Mixed feelings. The food was excellent. Try the bacon of the month, yummy!!! The cocktails were mediocre. Like almost bad. The cocktails sound like they should be incredible by the description but they fall very short. Just bland. The service was okay, our waitress barely...More

Chris, our waiter, did a fantastic job serving us. We loved our breakfast (Eggs benedict, irish coffee, and my hubby had the super tots with 2 eggs on top). It wasn't too busy, and we ate pretty quickly.

Pleasant evening with great food at the Roadhouse. Busy night when we went, so had to wait about 30 minutes. The whiskey/bourbon drinks are their specialty. Reasonable price for great food.

Usually a burger joint doesn't have either great salads/hot veggies nor snazzy mixed drinks. This cozy family-style restaurant has all that plus really friendly wait-staff

The quinoa salad is amazing, and that combined with the blackened Brussel south was truly amazing. Last call was before 11pm, but I stayed eating and drinking until about 11:30 ad nobody was rushing me out or anything.
