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.

The food here was OK, nothing special, wine as in all of the USA is incredibly expensive. When we went to this restaurant we hadn't learnt to share starters and mains so inevitably there was far too much food - as a Brit I find...More

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.
