Dinner at The Roadhouse Cafe was disappointing. One positive: The Clam Chowder was deliscious and hearty. One area needing slight improvement: Our server was delightful, but rushed us through the entire meal, so it was not relaxing. She did however stay on top of our...More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, but we found it a bit disappointing. Food quality of the seafood we ordered was quite good, but menu seemed lacking in broiled or grilled seafood. The main problem we had was that is was so dark with...More

Although the lighting was a bit low we enjoyed our meal. The scallops with cream sauce was very good and the catch of the day potato chip crusted cod was also very good. The food could have been hotter, it was warm.

Our menu offers everything from native seafood dishes, such as cioppino and blackened swordfish, to Italian specialties and pasta dishes, and a variety of choice steaks. If you're looking for a lighter bite, look no further than our Bistro where we offer salads, sandwiches and thin-crust gourmet pizzas in addition to our full dinner menu. A carefully culled wine list, 20 of which are available by the glass, and nearly 30 beer selections round it all out. House-made desserts, espresso and cappuccino are the perfect ending to a perfect evening at the Roadhouse Cafe. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a private party of 150, let the Roadhouse Cafe make your evening a memorable one.
