Friendly staff and ample portions

Large pours of wine, huge, crispy portions of chicken in both the Chicken Parmesan and the Smoky Mountain Chicken sandwiches -- delicious! The other two in our party had cheeseburger clubs, which they also ate every bite of! Two notes: when I asked for a salad instead of the fries, the waitress... read more

Stopped by for dinner after Xmas shopping on black Friday. Ordered pork chops that came to the table sizzling over sliced potatoes and onions. The pork chops were overcooked which they usually seem to be in a lot of restaurants (in fairness). The potatoes with onions were excellent. My mother ordered roast beef w mashed potatoes. The roast beef was... More

My Mother and I stopped in for dinner last week. Although I have only been in there once about six months ago, I would believe the decor hasn't changed at all in years. Its a homey locals place and that is fine. The food was good, large portions for a great price. I enjoy good food and the portion size... More

We enjoyed our meal here. The service was a little slow, but friendly (Monday night, I figure it's a little quiet). We ordered Baked Haddock & Shrimp (substituted for Haddock and Scallops) and the Chicken Madeira Fontaine. Loved both. Dessert to go was a peanut butter chocolate cake which was ok. Prices were great. It's a local neighbourhood bar type... More

Visited this restaurant twice within a couple of months. I never review a restaurant on a single visit. Both times, a weekend and a weeknight I enjoyed the food and the service. The atmosphere is casual, clean and attractive. They have a large menu with average prices. I definately would not hesitate to go back.

we visited the Roast House on the recommendation of family and although the food was tasty and I could not fault it, I found the portions much too large. The menu was large and varied and there would be something there for everyone but it certainly is not good for dieters! I would probably go back again but be more... More
