Good Spot, If not in a wheelchair

I have a major issue that I must bring up first and foremost, the establishment is not wheelchair friendly. It can be worked around to a degree but it is a small restaurant so difficult. It's hard enough to be a wheelchair user, then coming to a restaurant that make it a further challenge it is far... read more

The food was timely and service was okay. Overheard servers being irritated about waiting on our big family on Sunday afternoon but our server did a good job, just not happy about it. The food was great. I had a turkey sandwich (can't remember the name on the menu). They have the best ranch dressing. Come at open on a... More

Went out for a family lunch, and enjoyed it very much. Shrimp, burgers, burritos all very good and filling. Server knowledgeable and friendly.

University Roadhouse is a local restaurant with a college "feel". Very good food and not expensive. Lots of choices on the menu. Staff is friendly and helpful. It can be a bit noisy when crowded. They have a full bar both upstairs and down.

It has the right "feel" for a student bar--booths and tables, sports on t.v., great efficient wait staff of college students, and the best free popcorn in Kalamazoo. Homemade soups are wonderful, especially the ham and bean. The shrimp "bangers" are lightly fried as as close as you can get to Heaven without dying. The salads are creative, fresh and... More

Second time visiting this restaurant so it must have been good the first time to go back again. I had the Wet Burrito the first time we visited and then the Tavern Steak the second. Both times the meals were really good. My son had the Maui Chicken sandwich and said it was really good as well. The portions are... More

We went there with a group of friends for a retirement dinner. Food was good, portions good. The server, Alex, was excellent. He was efficient and funny. Made the whole evening enjoyable.

I had the steak; I had better at Texas Roadhouse. The portions are small. The food isn't bad, it's just what you'd expect from just another average steakhouse.
