Roe's has had a facelift over the last couple of years. I was there in 2013. The food was good and the Restraunt was adequate. They have adde a new bar and tons of tv's. Increased their beer offerings. The food was very good and the wait staff was excellent especially the bartenders. An awesome thumbs up.

Roe's is newly remodeled with TV's in all directions playing your favorite sport. The food is tasty and filling. They have the usual burgers and such with some steaks and other entrees. The food is very good. This is not a great quick lunch place unless you are the boss and it doesn't matter when you get back. They are... More

My husband, daughter and I met up with my son and his wife for supper. We like going to Roe's because my husband and daughter are very picky eaters, and they LOVE the Alfredo with crispy chicken. I try to get something different every time and haven't been disappointed. This time they ordered their usual, and I ordered the sampler... More

I was on a MC trip with friends and we stopped here for dinner. It is a Sports Bar/Restaurant with outside seating on the Northside of town and it was recommended to us. I ate Italian which was quite good and the others ate a variety of dishes. It has outside seating on both the North and East(road) side, plenty... More

The 4 of us came in for a late dinner. We were initially seated inside, but the music was incredibly loud so we went outside. The service was slow. It should be automatic when someone orders a burger, that you put condiments on the table. I had to go and find someone to get that done. I ordered the chicken... More

I gave it an average because our service was less than... It wasn't busy inside when we arrived. We had a large party of about 14. We were seated in the back in a largish room which we occupied in its entirety. It took awhile to get our drinks, thinking maybe the server was overly busy we didn't say anything... More

Service is typically great. Food is usually very good. Reasonable prices for lunch. I've been about five times now when in town and have made it a regular stop.
