Good food, good drink, good prices!

First, I have to commend this place for handling a group of 20 of us on little notice. Everyone was able to get something to their liking, the beer selection was good, and the prices were very, very reasonable. It is nothing fancy, but it worked. We plan on going back next time we are in the... read more

I loved the look of the place. It was very "countrified" with rooster decor....cute. The people are nice. Service was a bit slow. Don't recommend the Gritty's Pub Style beer. Soapy tasting. The reuben was terrible. Smelled rancid. They didn't charge me for it so that was good. The Roadhouse burger was flavorless. The mushroom ravioli with spinach (scampi style)... More

The ambiance was horrible. The carpets need cleaning and the noise level is high. During our meal there was a strong cigarette odor from one of the waitstaff. Our experience with the food was extremely poor. Our clam appetizer was unacceptable with black bellies and a foul taste. Our meals were varied, three different seafood selections, each one not enjoyable.... More

The absolute best salmon steak I have ever had. It was moist and tender served with roasted red potatoes and cornbread with maple butter and salad bar. Worth a stop.

Service was so-so, food wasn't anything worth going back for. Nice setting and people but has nothing unique about the menu relative to 20 other places around.

We enjoy eating at the Rooster's Roadhouse. They have a good food selection and a relaxing atmosphere. I fell in love with Old Thumper on draft here.

The waitstaff was friendly & the food was good. I had ribs; these were not the best but are definitely worth the money. I expected more flavor from the meat, however, these were good ribs! My husband had the pot roast and said it was really good. Prices are on par with places like Longhorn or Outback. So it's not... More

Made a quick day trip in to Maine from NH, and we stopped at this restaurant for a quick drink and some snacks. The service was fast and friendly. The restaurant is 2 floors, and we sat upstairs at a high-top table near the bar. We only had appetizers, but everything was tasty. The prices were right, and we'll definitely... More

I was hoping to go and get some Prime Rib one evening but unfortunately it was not on the menu. instead I decided to try the Pot Roast which was rough as all h*ll. I was not impressed what so ever. The service was O.K. ... my friend ordered the chicken pot pie which was pretty average.. Maybe it was... More
