“Nice place to stop and enjoy while dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This is a family place with good food and live music. The photographs on the walls are worth a long look, they are beautiful works of art. I enjoyed my steamed clams and with artichokes. We ate here twice, the first time the service was great, the second night the waitress was distracted, but it was still overall a good experience.

“Nice Surprise for Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This was a great find on our drive to Carmel. It was lunch time and we decided to try the Davenport Roadhouse. It was a very nicely decorated dining room with a view of the chef preparing food in the kitchen area. I had the artichoke & leek lasagna and it was absolutely wonderful. It was full of artichokes and leeks with a tasty white sauce and cheese. My spouse had the Calamari salad. It was nicely arranged on fresh greens with vinaigrette and spicy clam Aioli on the side. We would definitely go back when going through the area. It's a bit remote so we were pleasantly surprised. There is a bakery counter in the front with a coffee bar.

Food and drinks are great. They also have outside seating. Very rustic and comfortable, just a great stop.

“Not ready for prime time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stopped in in March on a Tuesday evening for dinner. Big mistake. The service was abominable - half our drink orders were lost, and getting anything took a ridiculous amount of time. Either this place is grossly understaffed, or the employees are incompetent - either way, we spent over 90 minutes getting dinner. And it was most definitely not worth it.
The dinner was, at best, mediocre. A tip for you: do NOT order the pizza. I did; my pepperoni pizza included spinach and (so help me!) squash on it. Just plain GROSS!!!
I would absolutely never return here.
A positive note: the live musical entertainment was quite good, and worth listening to. I'd go see them again, but it would have to be someplace else. Also, the beach down the block at Davenport Landing was beautiful.

“Tuesday's are great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Davenport Roadhouse, as its now known is a great stop if you're driving between Santa Cruz and San Francisco on the Coast Hwy.
I live in Santa Cruz and we like to head up to the Roadhouse on Tuesday evenings. If the weather's nice its a great drive as the sun's setting. Once there there's a couple of good reasons for having visited on Tuesday. One is its Taco Tuesday at the Restaurant. The other is the great live music in the bar area.
Tacos are $3 each and you have a choice of fish, veggie or carnitas(pork). I've usually order two fish and a carnitas. Each taco is a fat package of flavor. Whichever filling you choose and the fish and pork are excellent are accompanied by red cabbage, guacamole and a delicious creamy chipole sauce. Three were almost too much but if you just get two you 'll definitely be wanting just one more. Happy hour drink prices are in effect til 9pm, so three tacos and a draft will set you back just 12.50.
And you get a night of live music thrown in for nothing extra. Some of the areas best musicians play here. Its acoustic oriented so volume is comfortable. The actions in the bar but if you want it a little quieter the restaurant is angled off the bar and you can hear and from some tables see the music in comfort.
Worth the time if your passing through or if you live in the area worth the drive.
