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.

Very average food, I could make it in my own kitchen for less. Very large restraint with very mediocre food. I would not visit again despite the good ratings others have given.

This place is great with consistently good food. I particularly love the petite filets. Seems like an old fashion, quality restaurant.

We had several different Italian dishes. Carbonara was excellent as was the wine list. Sea food preparations were tasty and recommended. Service was world-class.
