Description: Owned and operated by David Colombo, the Roadhouse Cafe, in the heart of Hyannis, is one of Cape Cod's premiere restaurants with regular recognition coming from Boston Magazine, Cape Cod Life and the Phantom Gourmet among others. We're open daily, year-round, beginning at 4:00 PM with early bird specials served until 6:00 PM. The key to the Roadhouse Cafe's longevity has been to consistently provide exceptional food and service in a classic-meets-casual, clubby atmosphere. Throughout the Roadhouse Cafe's four dining rooms you'll find an extensive collection of antiques, much of it with a local connection, complemented by warm woods and oriental rugs.

Without a doubt the best restaurant on Cape Cod. There are a whole lot of year round restaurants on Cape Cod, lots are less expensive a few are more, buy if you want the best possible experience The Roadhouse Cafe is for you.

My mother and I dined out at The Roadhouse prior to attending the symphony with the intention of using a Cape Cod Daily Deal. Upon arrival we were informed that we could either use our deal or we could take their offer of $5.00 off each entree because we were attending the symphony. We chose the symphony deal so that...

I had very high hopes! Came highly recommended. Started by splitting a Cesar salad with hubby. Usually it would come in one bowl/plate and I would split it at the table. I was delighted to see when they brought it out to us it had been split onto two separate plates. Unfortunately as we started eating it I realize that... More

Returned to The Roadhouse .Our server left a lot to be desired. He spent s lot of time leaning on the area where they made out the bills, with his fingers on his mouth, BIG TURN OFF. Since we were guests of another party, we stayed. But I would have asked to see a manager. The food was excellent as... More

We were lucky enough to go on Monday's jazz night and pleased to find a welcoming restaurant that wasn't about to close at the end of the season. We had a friendly welcome into an inviting room with live jazz playing. The place was clearly a locals' favourite, always a good sign. I had stuffed pork chop and my friend... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal at The Roadhouse in Hyannis this past Friday evening. Not realizing that there were two entrances (not clearly marked)- we entered by way of the formal dining room which is where we were seated. It was charming and quiet and we enjoyed the space very much, but upon leaving, we found that... More

Excellent food and great service. We had a toddler with us and our waitress helped us whenever she could. 4th trip to this area and we wouldn't miss eating here.

We chose this as our first dining experience on Cape Cod and were very disappointed with the experience. I really cannot figure out what ailed the lobster bisque - between my wife and I we only ate half of it. My wife thought it was way too rich ...OK, but when I tried to eat it, I just thought it...
