Yes, I'm a regular here when i travel for business

They have a huge menu, but I can't rave about the regular entree's. However the burgers are great. med rare they come out... read more

Roast house has a real treasure in one of their waitresses! Kat is a true asset to this business! Sweet as can be, professional, efficient, and kind! Even with a large group she maintained her excellent service the entire time we were there. Food was great too! This was my first time here but we will definitely be back!

I've been here a few times because my daughter loves the pub food, but I find it bland and greasy. The service is good as are the prices, and there's plenty of parking.

There was 4 of us. 3 ordered appetizers the other a regular menu item. We had leftovers consisting of a boneless chicken finger and two potatoe skins. Asked for a take out box and we were told no take out on appetizers. They would rather throw out the food than let you take home food you paid for.

Use to be good, now not so much. I order a steak sandwich and it was supposed to be a sirloin, I think I got a steak um. It was horrible. Next time I went back I order pork chops and they were just ok. Went back again, yes, I go back because my friends like the dinner specials, and... More

We have eaten here a few times and its always okay. The roast beef isnt what it used to be when it was on Newport Ave. Either is the fish. They have different priced apps if you eat them at the bar. The drink specials are good and apps are decent. I had a few meals that just passed the... More

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 said I would have to pay the add-on...

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
