I came in to the Roadhouse by myself as I am away on business. The hostesess suggested the Bar Area and said I could seat myself. I complied and then proceeded to wait for 20 some minutes until I flagged down a hostess walking by. I asked her who would be waiting on me and she said the bartenders will be right with me. I said, it has been over 20 minutes and she did not respond to me but walked over to the bartenders (who were not very busy and had spent half of the last 20 minutes standing around and talking). One of the bartenders came over and asked for my drink order. No apology was ever given which was disheartening. I have no problem being by myself, but sitting 20 minutes alone before any contact with waiter staff was terrible. My salad came out and was very good. She never offered me rolls which are the best thing there! Finally, I asked her for one when she brought me more water. My food came out very quickly (too quickly as I just got my salad) and was good. I had the 10 oz Prime Rib. The service was much better once I got waited on, but first impression was not good. I am here for 7 days and won't be returning now or any other time I am in State College.
