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.

Good food in a strange place

The Roadhouse Café has a casual name and a casual look from the outside. But once inside it starts to take on the feel of an old antique shop combined with a fine restaurant. The odd thing is the combination actually works. Of course having good service and exception food doesn't hurt but it's... read more

We enjoyed the lovely old world atmosphere in this restaurant. The service was excellent and the menu extensive. We opted for the shepherds pie but were told this was no longer available. Not to be outdone, we chose instead, the chicken Hot Pot Pie and what a pie it was. We asked how big it was to decide whether we... More

This restaurant has a very varied menu. I ordered the chicken risotto. It was good, but I liked my boyfriend's main dish better. He ordered filet mignon. The decoration too is so beautiful. Drinks where delicious too. I recommend it even though it is pricey.

Enjoyed a delicious wintry night dinner with friends. Appetizers consisted of a jumbo chilled shrimp cocktail, an ample portioned roasted beet salad, wedge and Caesar salads. Ingredients were fresh and crisp. Entrees consisted of linguini Bolognese, two chicken saltimboccas, and I savored a sautéed chicken breast stuffed with lobster and Swiss cheese. Meals were hot and beautifully presented. Server was... More

My Dad and I were in the local hardware store talking about where to go to dinner, when the cashier told us to try Roadhouse. We did and we had a great meal.

We made a reservation on Friday, the same day of visit, for 7 pm without problem, which was nice. Food was very delicious; service was good and friendly but nothing extraordinary for the higher price range of this establishment. Drinks were a bit delayed but also delicious. Atmosphere was nice; piano player was very talented. Being a professional in the... More

We have been to the Roadhouse at least once a year for the past 15 years. We always sit in a booth in the bar area at around 6:30pm. Reservation needed way ahead if you want to be there which is near the fireplace. It was a very busy night and the waiter was pushing for us to make decisions... More
