I've eaten dinner here a couple of times and safe to say I will go again. A group of us went this last time and share what we had. One of us ate daily special. Pork belly with bacon macaroni salad and onion rings, excellent. The Roadhouse burger and fries was also very good as was the Da Works pizza.... More

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.

The food here is okay, but I find the menu a bit pretentious and mainstream in a foodie/hipster way. Brussels sprouts, beets, aioli...(Dude, whatever...) Happy hour sees decent prices, and the drinks are strong, but while I like the bacon of the day shtick, overall it just seems to try a little too hard.

I have enjoyed this restaurant in the past but the last two times I have been there I have been disappointed. The service is usually good but this last visit I ordered a salad and a sandwich. Asked for the salad to come out first. Was less than half way through the salad when the sandwich came out. My avocado... More

Service was very friendly and prompt but she was very slow in refilling our water glasses. Food was, per the usual, very good and their menu always has a few unusual and tasty items. If you want an intimate meal this is not the place for you. It's a bit noisy. I wish they opened earlier for breakfast, especially on... More

The salads are done well and the macaroni & cheese was rich. The calamari is thick and well breaded. Of course the tater tots are worth the visit. Many of the dishes are trying too hard and have so many clashing spices that you just have to say no. Great variety of whiskeys and the brown bag wines can be... More

Dinner and drinks at the Roadhouse. All good, service excellent, every bourbon you can think of. Sandwiches or full meal you cant beat it.

I like the food and the ambience here. Casual but better than casual food. I paid for a party of 7-8 the other night. I made the mistake (after several drinks) of not scrutinizing my bill carefully. If I had I would have noticed that an 18% gratuity was automatically charged because of the size of our group. Like a... More

We love this place! The food never disappoints! It's extremely busy right at lunch or dinner so we try to go for a late lunch or early dinner. Expect to wait a while for your food, and not be in a hurry at all, but if you go in knowing that you will 95% of the time not be disappointed!... More

Open after Bear Tooth and Rustic Goat have closed. Good eats for the late night carouser. Interesting pizza, quinoa salad and tapas, go for it. Good beer on tap too. I'm buzzed. Heading home at 11:30.
