Roots

Our favorite restaurant in Camas. Great food plus a friendly and knowledgable wait staff. It's a big city restaurant in a small city.

Roots food is very well prepared, and beautifully presented. Oysters for lunch are a favorite, as is their steaks for dinner. All foods are locally sourced, and fish has always been wild caught, not farmed.

Roots is a great place for Happy Hour...They have a great menu and the food is always fresh and fabulous...The make one of the best drinks I have ever had called "Oregon Strawberry" ...My friends love the 'stumptown mochatini"....these cocktails run about $9...and worth every penny... If you order off the Happy hour menu the Roots Burger for $8 is... More

Finally a place that knows how to serve a medium rare ribeye! Bravo! It's hard to find a restaurant that knows how to cook steak. 12oz ribeye...excellent!

We've been twice now and we've had two good experiences. I'm confused as to why the food portion sizes vary?? On our second visit, the calamari was about 1/2 size - and so we the sweet potato fries. We didn't complain, as they were still delicious! I think Roots may have the best Margarita I've ever had on Happy Hour.... More

Good food, lots of options, adequate wine list. If you plan on talking with your dining partner(s), you will have to sit close. VERY noisy. Doesn't seem to matter how many people are in the place.

Wonderful restaurant. Food is exceptionally well prepared. The service is very good. Excellent wine list that is very broad with some surprising good values. The steaks are aged to perfection and very well presented. Treat yourself to a great meal here.

The food here is very creative and excellently prepared. Don't be surprised if your second $7 glass of wine during happy hour goes in the same glass. I also noticed my food sitting ready to be served for several minutes. Still warm/cold enough to eat. Service seems more interested in the conversations with other servers. You'll be greeted by the... More

Went with a large party and everyone raved about how good their dinners were -- halibut, salmon, steak, short ribs, and the pork chop were all beyond excellent. Service was great too -- just had to wait for quite a while for dinner to be served.

Roots has changed. Quality is not as good. Not sure why...very disappointing! Fries used to be fresh now it appears they have gone to frozen fries. Hamburgers don't taste the same. Wedge salad was disappointing. Tried to leave a comment on their website & there is no link to contact them. Wondering if ownership has changed. Won't be going back.
