Had dinner here recently and it was an ok experience. Buckets of peanuts on all tables with everybody "invited" to throw the shells on the floor sets the scene for the evening. Service was a little slow with staff appearing hastened. Menu was ok and Bison was an immediate attraction - supposed to be healthier than beef. Typical of US... More

I took my mother for lunch this week. Thought we would try some place new. I ordered the lunch hamburger, expecting a decent hamburger and got thin, frozen piece of meat that was so unappetizing. Expected a great hamburger at a place called the Roadhouse. My Mom's broccoli, cheese soup was not good either. The pieces of broccoli were huge... More

We were here on a race weekend and it was a cruise night with the car park full of neat cars. The place was packed but we managed to eat next to the bar, the service was fine and didn't take long for our food to arrive. The food was good and so was the beer, no complaints here!

My wife and I stopped in for dinner while traveling, should have passed. Our service was terrible, our food was mediocre at best, smallest half rack of ribs I have ever seen, and happy hour was only for those in the bar. We came in expecting to have a good steak meal, a nice dining experience, but we left unimpressed.

I haven been going here since they opened locally about 15 years ago. We can always count on the fact that the food served will be yummy and we will have good service. The waiters and waitresses are always friendly to my children and I appreciate that. The one time we had an issue with our food taking an extremely... More

We really enjoy Roadhouse Grill and come here often. Friday night visit, not to busy. We decided to sit in the bar which we might do more often. They have specials for people just visiting the bar. My husband got his usual combo with chicken and tri-tip which he said was very good. I usually get a salad but decided... More

I was with a group of twenty or more and we have been to this restaurant for a number of years. The menu is large enough to give a good variety from bison burgers to catfish with the assurance it is being cooked freshly. The staff are helpful and friendly and the food portions are generous. The peanuts add an... More

Went in late on a week day, sat in the bar to wind down from a long day at work. The bartender served as my waitress. She was very attentive, but not too "in your face", I ordered a soda and 1/2 rack of pork ribs/bourbon tri tip combo and watched some football. Since I like my beef well-done, I... More
