Large menu, food is good, large portions. Fun place with Roosters everywhere. Very friendly staff, seating is on the uncomfortable side, stay away from the booths.

Rooster's Roadhouse continues to be a favorite of locals and visitors alike! Most likely because the owners, Gary and Steve, consistently serve quality food at affordable prices.

Food was decent but lack of service for the 'automatic' 20% tip! Waitress was non-existent other than serving one round of drinks, food and no water! What's the incentive?! Don't appreciate being told how to tip with non-earned service.

Very good food and comfortable atmosphere. Stopped in on our way to Sunday River - something about seeing the snow mobiles outside made us think it was a good take.... good wings, sandwiches, and drinks. Staff is very friendly and makes it a fun environment.

Nice place with an extensive menu. Nice surroundings. My son and I had the lobster roll and soup (Clam Chowder) combination. We were pleased with the lobster roll portion and the quality of the soup. Good beer options available. Definitely would eat there again.

Reasonably priced lobster rolls...$16.99 per roll. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Many different food choices.
