Needs dark beer! (for us porter and stoute drinkers)

Stopped in for a late lunch and had the petty melt and a pint of Newcastle. The melt had too much 1000 island for my liking but that was wiped off easily enough. The darkest beer they had was Newcastle (other than Guinness in the can which is just lacking flavor to me.) The barkeeper was great and... read more

This is the second time I've been to the Ripon Roadhouse and it was as good as it was the first time. Service was great and all the people who worked there were friendly. They greeted you when we came in and said thank you when we left. Our waiter made sure we had what we needed and refilled our... More

I am always looking for places with healthy eating in Ripon. Well this to me is not one of them. They have lots of fried foods and foods that are high in fats. They do have a few things. A few more wouldn't hurt. A little change sometimes is a good thing. They do have a small town atmosphere. That... More

On our way from Napa to Yosemite we decided to pull of for some lunch and ended up on the Main Street of Ripon. It felt very neat and tidy with a straight grid shaped layout and the stars and stripes on every lamppost. There were a few Mexican restaurants but the Roadhouse took our fancy and seemed very American... More

We came across the Ripon Roadhouse quite by mistake. Travelling from Yosemite to San Francisco we came off the freeway to get some fuel and missed our turn and ended up on this street. Staff were very welcoming, lovely atmospheres inside, food and service was good.

Mediocre food, High prices and very questionable business practices! Ate there in early July the place had a nice atmosphere, but I was not impressed at all with the food especially for the prices they were charging. To top it all off they charged not only my meal but also another persons meal to my card! when we found the... More

My husband and I tried this place more than once and we were not impressed. The prices are too high for the quality of food that you receive. If you are a drinker this is a great place, but if you are hungry go somewhere else.

We went to the Roadhouse for Father's Day. We had a reservation, and they had a table ready for us. It was very crowded, but the food quality was still maintained. It is nice that they have drink specials throughout the restaurant. My husband had a burger and fries. It was very tasty. I ordered a pub steak salad, which... More
