We enjoyed our dinner meal at Root and Vine. The food was good. For some reason both the pork chops and trout were blackened? Still very good. Service was prompt, knowledgeable and attentive. The acutal restaurant is dark, chopped up and furnished with all kinds...More

We had dinner and drinks at the Root & Vine and sat outside which was nice. The food was excellent; the wine and Bloody Marys were also yummy. We had the grilled chicken with fingerling potatoes and haricots verts; it was very tender and tasty....More

I have only ate here for lunch, and although it is a little pricey it is well worth it. The Cheerwine burger is awesome. I have never left disappointed with anything I have ordered from here.

We were very satisfied with the service and enjoyed the food. The pulled pork sandwiches and sweet potato chips were excellent. Outside dining is available.

Salads and sandwiches are prepared fresh so things can be omitted as requested. They have three vegetarian options but I'm a meat eater so I have not really looked. My vegetarian and no gluten friends are quite happy there.
