Our menu offers everything from native seafood dishes, such as cioppino and blackened swordfish, to Italian specialties and pasta dishes, and a variety of choice steaks. 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.

A go-to place in Hyannis - great food

We have been here twice before. This time I had a salmon dish that was super delicious. It was a special that night. The service was great, even the valet parking. I had salmon with jasmine rice - soooo good even leftover the next day for lunch. The place has a cool vintage feel to it. Next time... read more

We ate here twice during our visit to Hyannis and our experiences touched both ends of the spectrum. On the first occasion, service was attentive and efficient with rather excellent food in the form of Crab Cakes and Filet Mignon served in the requested "Pittsburgh Style". It was so good we decided to return a couple of nights later. Oh... More

Lovely waitress. Decent pub-type food but typically over-priced being at the Cape in Summer. Servings were generous. Rice was cold (not warm - COLD, from the fridge). Crowded and noisy.

Very busy and vibrant restaurant. Staff were flat out, attending to people. The food was fairly standard. I ordered scallops as a main course as did my wife. On arrival mine were 'lukewarm' and I had to send them back! They returned and had obviously been microwaved as the plate had not been touched. A good place if you want... More

We tried this restaurant a couple of years ago and they let us walk out before they would offer to do some sort of vegetarian meal for me.

Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns about your recent visit to the Roadhouse. We did recently introduce a new menu. There is often a learning curve when this happens as the kitchen staff adjusts and learns to time items being prepared by various individuals. We apologize that this negatively affected dinner for you and your guests.... More

The food here is very good and fresh. The seafood dishes are delicious! My favorite were the scallops! The atmosphere is upscale and private, which I really liked as well.

i live in the area and dine here often. Great service, large menu and a warm and inviting atmosphere! While it is a favorite summer dining spot of many who visit the Cape , the Roadhouse is equally popular in the off season/winter. Service is always exceptional and I have never been disappointed in any meal I have ordered. I... More

I really know that when I enter a Columbo restaurant like the Roadhouse i'm going to leave quite happy. On this visit I had a wonderful veal dish and 3 others enjoyed their fish dishes. The bill was about $60. A little high w/o alcohol. I enjoyed having our soft drinks refilled at no charge. The server was Anton and... More

We were advised to check out this restaurant since it is owned by the same owners as Columbo's (our favorite) and the Black Cat. At first we thought we might be a little under dressed for this restaurant (capris and shorts); however, we were made to feel welcomed. There was no wait when we arrived (around 7 pm on a... More
