Good selection, great sweet potato fries

The receptionist at our hotel recommended the Best Little Roadhouse. We were a bit dubious when we arrived because from the outside it didn't look all that inviting but the staff were very welcoming and the food was great. Both steaks and burgers were very good.

Helpful staff and a nice patio outside provided a good steak dinner. This is a large restaurant, but the servers were friendly, never in a rush, offered good menu suggestions -- try the steak salad with tri-tip.

Our family went at a slower time and was happy with the service and the food. We thought is was a little pricey for what you get.

Server was horrible. He rarely came to our table and acted like he could care less if wew are there or not. When asking questing about the menu he woudl take a deep sigh before giving a rude answer. Food was ok, serving sizes just right. We did the min golf after dinner, fun course but very small. Worst part... More

Drinks served very quickly and order taken. Food done quite well with special onion strings appetizers. Portion size was very good. Although quite noisy it was not difficult... More

We went here for my husband's birthday and had a wonderful meal. The ribs are amazing. The waiter was absolutely on top of things and was extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely go again!

Saw the good reviews on tripadvisor and then a local recommended it. Wanted to find a miniature golf course to take my son to and found out there was one here. Fun course. The dinner menu was great. I wasn't really hungry so I ordered the Harvest Salad. It was great. Asked for extra greens to add to it and... More

The staff was welcoming when I first came in and very helpful in getting me a list of items that were glueten free so I did not have to spend time asking questions. Very thoughtful wait staff who spent time pointing items on a menu that these old eyes had difficulty seeing. She also mentioned at my request, I could... More

The food was okay. My mother's was way too salty. Mine was on the bland side. My uncle's wasn't around long enough to be tasted. We could not talk at all because the noise was way too loud. Also the floor was slick and my mother and I almost fell when our canes slid. I will probably be back to... More
