Inside is pleasant enough here...a bar atmosphere in one section, dining room in another ; but our favorite is to be up on the upper deck on a nice day. Being WMU alumni we like overlooking the track, football stadium, and on up into campus. We favor outdoor seating whenever possible and weather permitting, and good views for this seem... More

My wife and I headed to another restaurant in town to find it was closed on Sunday. So we came here instead, and I am glad we did. The burger I had may have been the best burger I have ever had. It was huge, extremely flavorful, and a very fair price. My wife tried something she doesn't usually like,... More

It's a casual atmosphere all year around. I especially like it in the warmer months when we can sit outside. The upstairs has tables under a large awning or out in the sun. The downstairs has tables outside under cover of the upstairs. The food is good, no gourmet fare, but well prepared and tasty. It caters to the young,... More

I had a nice lunch here of a pork chop sandwich. Good service, good clean restaurant, nice view of WMU sports facilities out the big window. The servers were friendly. Good portions of entree and sides.

I ordered the tavern steak and it was amazing! Just like something I would've cooked myself. Plenty of food but not too much, the veggies were actually soft unlike other restaurants that give u hard veggies like they came right out the bag. My bf had the battered shrimp which he really liked. We thought it wouldn't be enough food... More

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 less enjoyable. However,... More

I went with a group of 3 friends to roadhouse around 7pm on a Saturday. They had a wait for tables which was fine . We asked to be seated upstairs in the bar area because we were there for cocktails not dinner . The host told us we were first on the list . She called our name and... 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
