Awesome bar; food is now (unfortunately) secondary

I've been a regular since the place first opened. First let's get the "awesome" out of the way... AWESOME beer selection (craft brew drafts spaning the spectrum, craft and microbrew bottles/cans, and decent "mainstream" beer selection. If you like beer, it doesn't get much better than the depth... read more

A very good selection of craft beer. Menu is limited but this is a small pub, and food quality is excellent. Service was good even though they were busy. I like the specialty aspect of this pub; way better than your chain restaurants.

The good: I struggle to put anything in this section because of how bad the bad is but to be fair I will. The beer list is quite good. There was clear thought out into the concept of this restaurant. The bar is really well designed with a nice, eclectic selection of spirits. The bad: I hope you have time... More

It's a simple equation for restaurants: good food + good drinks + good service = success! Someone is not adding correctly and, more importantly, not reading these reviews. I have gone to the Roasthouse Pub for a couple of years and found the baby back ribs worth crawling-on-the-ground-to-get-there yummy. For the dozen or so times that I have ordered them,... More

The food has gone down hill lately. A great selection of beer, but they manage to ruin it with a bad poor. Every beer they pour there is flat due to untrained servers. They need to learn to aerate the beer and give it some head to bring out the flavor. I complain about it every time I go there,... More

I would have rated this "Very Good" but the food has dropped the past 6 months or so. The beer selection is basically all craft beers, and changes constantly. That's awesome, which allows you to try a ton of different brews. The menu used to be much better, but in the past 6 months or so, they've revamped the menu.... More

My bookclub held a meeting at Roasthouse. The daily list of craft brews on tap are listed on blackboards on opposite sides of the restaurant. I chose a cider and it was crisp and satisfying. But the menu choices were food were limited. The burger choice varies daily and does not mean it is a beef burger at all. The... More

The beer selection here was superb. The night I visited, they had a firkin and it seemed like this was a common occurrence. Also pretty cool was the beer rep was there to talk about the firkin. The menu here was very brief. I think there were only 2 or 3 appetizer options. Despite their food selection not being as... More

I have been to Roast House many times and read the reviews before deciding to post my own review. If you love beer the amazing rotating beer selection makes RH a must visit. They post an updated beer list every few days on Facebook and Twitter. Last night alone I had 2 beers rated 99 by Beer Advocate. They do... More
