If you're looking for a lighter bite, look no further than our Bistro where we offer salads, sandwiches and thin-crust gourmet pizzas in addition to our full dinner menu. A carefully culled wine list, 20 of which are available by the glass, and nearly 30 beer selections round it all out. House-made desserts, espresso and cappuccino are the perfect ending to a perfect evening at the Roadhouse Cafe. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a private party of 150, let the Roadhouse Cafe make your evening a memorable one.

The waiter, Fernando, was very nice and attentive. The ambiance was warm and comfortable. The food was very good and the portions were just right. We went for an earlier dinner (5 PM) and found out we had made it for the early bird special. Each meal was $3.00 off. I just wished they gave you a... read more

Nice; but was pricey for just appetizers and drinks alone; some in our party would of preferred a full meal elsewhere, for the same amount.

Our waitress was very attentive and upbeat! There was a wide variety of seafood dishes, and found the Tuna to be amazing. The only issue we found was seating in dining area was very crammed, seating way to close to other patrons

and great food, drinks (the wine list is impressive) and fabulous service from genuinely friendly people! But at $12.00 per glass of wine, its a tad bit pricey to visit on a regular basis, i.e., one or two times a week as some natives like to do.

This was recommended to us by the Anchor Inn Hotel, and they weren't wrong. The food is good and they offer an extensive menu. Whilst not diner prices, this is still worth going to and would definitely recommend it.
