Pleasant evening with great food at the Roadhouse. Busy night when we went, so had to wait about 30 minutes. The whiskey/bourbon drinks are their specialty. Reasonable price for great food.

A coworker took me here for lunch while in town. I was really hungry and everything looked really good. I was really impressed with the Mac & Cheese, it was truly one of the best I have ever eaten at a restaurant. The cheese sauce was really thick and a deep flavor profile that was just outstanding. The crumbled bacon... More

Though the menu may seem limited what they have managed to do is focus on quality rather than a huge variety. We started with the lavendar infused pork belly (which was the "bacon of the month", talk about decadent and scrumptious. we had the bacon jam burger and the oxtail and bleu pizza. We shared both and were super satisfied.

Usually a burger joint doesn't have either great salads/hot veggies nor snazzy mixed drinks. This cozy family-style restaurant has all that plus really friendly wait-staff

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
