Someone said that the chicken is just like KFC. Not even close. They need to get their tastebuds checked. Also, KFC is greasy and the skin falls off. Broaster House is not greasy. You can put their chicken in a package and when you transport it and pull it out, the skin will not be falling off. This is the... More

I went for a Christmas party with all you can eat chicken dinner. Although locals rave about it I can only go by my experience. The chicken tasted like KFC's the sauce for the shells was awfully and the french fries were not that great. I would stick to Wrights Farm

Perfectly prepared cocktails. Delicious food ranging from "broasted" chicken to Italian specialties to fresh seafood and great sandwiches. This landmark is really a destination restaurant for foodies in the know. Two words sum it up: simply superb. You owe it to yourself to give this a try! Enjoy!

Broasted chicken is always delicious. They serve it "family style" or you can buy a single dinner if alone or your dining partner wants something else. The chicken is served with french fries, quartered potatoes, pasta, salad and rolls.

Hi, my name is PenFreak and I loooooove chicken. Yes, I seek high and low for the best, bone-in chicken.. whether it is fried, roasted, baked, grilled, whatever it is I don't discriminate. This is by far the best (fried) chicken I ever had. It is lightly floured and then broasted to perfection. You can even ask to have it... More

Growing up this was my favorite place. Everything was good. I'm thinking though it's memories based up living there and that's all you know. So when you read reviews, see who's writing them. Are they locals? If so, discount it. The couple times I've been back in the last 30 years, it was downhill. The pasta sauce was bland and... More

My family frequents Broaster House in Woonsocket for family style chicken. No matter if you're a party of 2 or 20 they accomodate your every need. If you've never had it, it's all you can eat salad, pasta, chicken and french fries. It's the best. Great food, service, atmosphere and reasonably priced. They appreciate your business. Fun at the bar... More
