We have been fans of Roost for several years and have never been disappointed. Last Sunday's weather drove many locals and visitors to restaurants vs. the beach. We appreciated Rob warning us that service may be a bit slow due to higher than expected volumes. It was well worth the short wait... read more

We ate a Roost twice for breakfast. The food is delicious, the service excellent and the atmosphere very pleasant and quiet. Best of all they have an expansive gluten free menu. They also serve lunch and dinner.

We arrived to a 30 to 45 minute wait and boy was it worth it. My granddaughter has Celiac Disease and needs gluten free food. We were seated and the host brought over a couple of blueberry muffins for the kids in case they were hungry from the wait. When he found out one was Celiac, he was back minutes... More

We stayed for the weekend next door and got a pick up order from here and oh...SO delicious! My hubby and I loved the fish tacos and lobster quesadillas. Interesting flavor combos and we picked it up so it was fresh and delicious!! We'll be back next year! We were impressed. Thank you!

After securing a table at one of the top-rated restaurants in Ogunquit on a Saturday night, when we were seated it just felt... wrong. Too noisy, too hectic, not cozy enough for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. I dislike spending money for something that's going to be sub-par. So we left, even suspecting that it would be difficult to... More

We ate there last summer and found breakfast to be good but dinner just ok (it was a large group). My wife and I have gone there twice in the last month for an early dinner and have been very pleased both times.

Loved this place! Great atmosphere, nice selection for breakfast and lunch. Wish we went back to try dinner. I had the crabby granny omlette with potato cake, delicious. Must try this place.

Loved the way the owners renovated this restaurant. Everything looked different from what it once was when it was the French restaurant. The wait staff were friendly and, knew the menu. The menu has something for everyone and, the meal was really, really delicious ! We plan to go back again when we visit Ogunquit.
