We stopped here for lunch and noticed most everybody leaving with a doggie bag. That told me you get plenty to eat. The four of us ordered sandwiches and a salad. What a lunch. The sandwiches were huge and very tasty, lots of meat, and lots of good fries. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. They had sweet rolls... More

We eat lunch here quite often as it is close to my office. The service is always very good and I love the Roadhouse Salad with salmon and honey mustard dressing. The rolls are very yummy. We often buy them for family gatherings by the dozen.

We had a late dinner and couldn't find a family place to eat. We tried it the first time and it was ok! I had the prime rib and my mom had the steak and mushroom and we both enjoyed it. My dad didn't like his though! My hubby had a burger and said was just an average. My kids... More

Nothing stood out here...it was just okay..not a lasting impression....I ordered sirloin steak with a side salad. Steak was good, salad was out of a bag...My bloody Mary was terrible, one of the worst I've had. Service was good.

This restaurant is close to downtown and very popular. It also has a small mini-golf course in the back, open seasonally. Food is pretty good but can be greasy. The menu has been the same for several years and could use some variety. Can be loud. Burgers, steaks, salads, finger foods, comfort food. Nice outdoor seating with fireplace.

We live in Salem and often go to the Roadhouse for late light dinner when it is after 9PM. We like the Barbecued Shrimp and their salads. We are not big beer aficionados but they have an adequate selection for us if we want more than iced tea. We are usually hungry when we get there so the warm rolls... More

This was my first visit here, and I was impressed with the quality of the food they serve. I took my daughter and her family to dinner there and only expected average food.

Love their steaks and the outside eating area by the cozy fireplace. Happy Hour has great 1/2 off apps and love the Tennessee Tea!
