This is another Sonoma county gem, great food, service and often they have live music so you can just have a great time here. I have never had a bad meal and been coming here for years when I am out at the river.

We've been here a few times and have never been let down. The pizza is delicious, burgers fantastic and great specials. Bartenders are always courteous, happy and fun. It's probably the best food on the river. We will return! Chicken Parmesan, pulled-pork nachos, kona Doug and the enchiladas.

A bucolic venue surrounded by big timber with inddor/outdoor dining, quality live music, a full bar and amazing beer selection, family friendly, broad swath of lawn, comfy and inviting. Hard to beat the Roadhouse which offers so much it's a temptation waiting to be enjoyed. Late spring to autumn the outdoor stage offers the best local bands as well as... More

Son works with a band called "The Thugs" that play often here. So of course we went to one of his gigs. It's an outside venue and they have a dance floor and seating set up to enjoy the music. He insists the food is good but we had already eaten so we didn't have a chance to try anything... More

As we drove up my husband and I thought, did we just step onto the set of "Wet Hot American Summer"??? This place is full of character and a little off the beaten path, but so so fun! Oh and most importantly, the food was delicious. I got the Reuben. It was one of the least greasy Reubens I've had,... More

Good Music and Good Food in the Redwoods. Family friendly and live music on week ends. Also a sparkling clean pool for swimming. We've had birthday pool parties there before and always loved the venue and setting. The food is pretty good. I used to live a few blocks away and picked up food to take home a few times.... More

The people working at this place are very friendly. The food is great and very affordable. I will definitely eat here again when in the area. Do avoid the Rio Nido Lodge right next door.

The food is better than you might expect, the bartender pours a generous drink, the service is friendly, and there's a pool. Live music on weekends. Don't expect farm-to-table gourmet chow here, the word "roadhouse" is about right, but a darned good burger can be had, and prices are reasonable.
