Nice pub

I had lunch there and the food was good. Service was great. We ate in on the back lawn. It's and old established place, over 100 years old.

Food is marginal but ambience is great. We live nearby and have been coming here for years. The place is always busy and popular with locals and folks living on the Eastside. The food and service need updating.

We decided to check the Roanoke Inn out for dinner after church. We have heard good things about the place. Nice setting sitting on the porch in booth on a warm evening. Service was good. It would have been nice to have ketchup and mustard on the table. Wasn't offered and I didn't ask. Food was only average for me... More

At over 100 years old this place is still humming along. The employees stay around and provide great service. Superior pub food and definitely the best burger on the island. Great outside seating in good weather if you can find a table.

Located between Bellevue and Seattle with a large sandwich menu. Great place to meet both before and after sporting events. Soup and sandwiches are excellent.

Fantastic burger in a great atmosphere. The old school design of the Inn, combined with good old fashioned grilled food, such as a great cheeseburger, really reminds me of the "good old days" when things were simpler.

The Roanoke Inn has been a gathering place on the Island for many, many years. Multiple generations have and are finding its funky and fun ambience to be the place to meet up. Noisy and friendly and with really good food and drink - highly recommended.

Nothing could have been better than a view of Lake Washington, a delicious guacamole/chicken sandwich with crispy French fries and a chocolate/caramel ice cream sundae! Hello, summer!

Very friendly staff. Good service. Staff was extremely helpful giving suggestions on local things to do on the island as well as other good places to eat. Plenty of outdoor seating. Great atmosphere. Food was good, fresh, priced right for the area. Easy walk from the English Tudor B&B.

Went here recently with a group of 6, we had Burgers, French Dip, Teriyaki Chicken and everyone agreed, that this place is great! The food and service was very good. It is a bit dark inside, so we were thrilled there was so much outside seating.
