The first visit to Rooster's we had very poor service (read: TWO hour wait for food w no appetizers) and decided to try again because the food was very good. This visit we were disappointed to realize that, indeed, the service here is consistently poor. Both visits we had 1.5-2 hour waits for food, confused, harried, distracted servers. Disappointing.

Great menu choice, freshly prepared dishes and the specials were inventive with superb tastes- the salmon cakes with the corn and bean stew were a favorite.

While Rooster's has a lot to offer from a culinary perspective, I think there tomato basil bisque is the best I have ever had and I order it every time I go there. The BBQ chicken is also fantastic. They also have a notable wine list.

We were in town for the first time and a friend recommended dinner at Rooster's. We are SO GLAD she did because it was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. The waitress recommended the au gratin potatoes and they were absolutely life changing! So delicious. We also got the hanger steak, scallops, assorted mushrooms, and... More

Was in town on business and this restaurant was recommended. Sat at the bar, since I was alone. I must say the bartender was not at all attentive and the bar was not busy. I had the arugula salad that was excellent, the beets which were supurb and the duck breast. I ordered it medium rare and it came rare.... More

Really cool atmosphere. We didn't have reservations and had to sit at the bar. We had the BBQ chicken on the spit and it was great. We had corn as a side. It was a little pricy but great good and service.

My last visit was for drinks only. The service and wine selection was excellent but I though the prices were higher than others in the area.
