I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before we stopped here because I would have gone elsewhere. This little bar had delicious wings with a wide variety of finishes . I had "wimpy", the mild buffalo sauce & also a mandarin chipotle which were both great ! We had a very pleasant waitress who was very attentive! The place was... More

Drinks were reasonable and appetizers were very good. It's a great place to congregate after work with colleagues!

The waitress named Latara was very cold and uninviting. Never seen a manager that gave us such horrible service before. It was quite surprising. Will be telling my friends and family not to go here ever, not worth it at all. I also don't like that they were serving underaged kids there. No one over twenty one wants to drink... More

I few weeks ago I visited the roost with some friends while passing through on our way to sugarloaf. We decided to sit at the bar and we're waited on by their bartender Michelle. We we're greeted with poor a attitude, inappropriate clothes for a work establishment, and we're not waited on in appropriate amount of time. We requested to... More

A couple Tuesdays ago I visited the roost with two friends. We originally sat at the bar because we just wanted drinks and wings. Our bartenders name was Michelle. She was one of the most rude and unprofessional people I've ever met. She was short and snappy with us. She was dressed unprofessionally. We moved to a table because Melissa... More

friends and I stopped by for some drinks at the bar and I understand it is a bar but ripped up jeans and sloppy outfits seem a little too unprofessional for any restaurant. Our bartender, Michelle, was not sociable and paid minimal attention to us. We chatted with the waitress for a while who was extremely pleasant. Next time we'll... More

The Roost serves pub grub in a basement space and would be be pretty unremarkable except for two things. First, in warmer months there is outside seating out back: Nice. Two, there are some tasty appetizers: Fried pickles and other vegetables, which make for interesting change of change of pace from nachos and potatoes. The chicken wings that the Roost... More

The Roost came to Farmington at a good time. The Granary-a long time favorite in town-had closed and there was definitely an opening for another place to gather. I wish that The Roost had thought to put in a brick oven pizza oven as I'm not a fan of wings and the burgers are way too big. I was there... More

Sandwiches were plan and poor flavor. Very limitted choices in general- for a chicken sandwich they offered ketchup or mayonaise- ok... I think it is a place to drink not eat.
