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

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 and breadth of the selections here. Second, and little talked about, is... 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

If you have a beer snob in your life. This is the restaurant for you. The food is good but haphazard. Because it is a small restaurant, some night they run out of food on the menu. And the menu is limited. The dessert is not the best, also hit and miss. But the beer is phenomenal. 30 craft beers... More

I really like this place, especially for the rotating list of 20 beers (and sometimes ciders). The food is pretty good, too. I've been there twice and will go back - mainly for the beer selection. The service, however, is not very good. The waitstaff spend way too much time talking to each other and regular customers at the bar... More

Ten of us stopped for beer and dinner at 6PM on a Wednesday evening. Although the small parking lot was jammed and some of us had to park elsewhere, we had no trouble inside the small pub assembling a row of tables to seat us all. Our waiter was in command of the information needed to help guide our beer... More
