We have eaten at this restaurant several times with the first time being shortly after they went to an al la carte menu a few years ago. In summary this is a very good restaurant with quality food, pleasant atmosphere and a friendly wait staff. The only major concerns I do have is with the cost of the side dishes... More

Lived in the area for 30 years and finally went here. Terrible mistake. To add a pea sized baked potato to my steak was 4 dollars. Place is small and dingey. Was not impressed

We happened across 'The Road Toad' and thought we should check it out. In addition to being in. Very nice setting next to their creek, the food was really terrific. We will return for sure if we get back to this area.

We decided to try The Road Toad Restaurant, Ligonier, PA, in celebration of our first wedding anniversary after reading several good reviews. Big mistake! My husband ordered the crabcake dinner and I ordered the crabcake, shrimp and scallop dinner. The salad was wilted and warm (the dill salad dressing was excellent), the bread was tasteless and the butter was about... More

Cute little restaurant outside Ligonier. The food was delicious! They have homemade fries and the cat fish was superb. It has a beautiful view of mountains and creek. Staff is very friendly and quick!

Menu offers a wide variety with a wonderful view over looking the Loyalhanna creek (good trout fishing). My favorite... More

Gathering of men from our church. Salad and beverages served by staff and buffet style for dinner with servers. Everything was good and staff continued to refill beverages while we ate.
