An honest pricing for an honest meal

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.

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.

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.

This place is in an old house and is the perfect place to take the team after a game. We have eaten there many times. I especially love their breakfast. Dinner is good too, but really crowded. The service is friendly, but it takes a while to get a table and you will be seating yourself. If you don't mind... More

I am a once-in-awhile Roanoke Inn customer. I usually go there to meet a buddy for a casual lunch and a beer. The Roanoke has a lot of historical charm. It grows out of its roadhouse past and is probably mostly more imagination and nostalgia on the part of its customers than anything real and definable. It you've been born... More

I did not like it at all. Poor customer service, poor food selection, poor food taste, very noisy. $11.00 for a hamburger worse than fast food. If you ask for the ingredients or even for the brands they use they do not know. People in Mercer Island must be desperate to go to that place. All they can enjoy is... More
