We went with four couples and had a great time. Bar service was fast as was dinner. Several couples had the rib eye steaks. The cuts were generous and well trimmed. Burgers and fries were also good.

Was there for bike week lack of service and very unorganized! Owner and manger were both drunk what kind of establishment is this!! Not to mention the half naked girls running around to top it all off!!!! How does OC allow this thought this was...supposed to be a family fun beach. Never again I’ll stick to the other east coast beachesMore

This place is a bar/club/restaurant all rolled in one. The food was surprisingly good. The drinks were also good and cheaper than I paid elsewhere. The club/bar attracts a younger crowd which was good for people watching. The staff was disorganized though considering how many...people they seem to employ. There was no clear hostess for seating, waitresses just had to see you in there section to serve you. The bouncers were just a group of guys with nothing identifying them as employees. 3 of them were at the door dressed like they were from a 90's rap video. They were just standing around playing on their phones and talking to some friends outside. The daily specials they advertise don't seem consistent either. Still good if you want good music and drinks. 20 some year olds looking for a party this is your place!More

Great experience. Had many drinks (other people even bought us some). Meal was excellent. Best BBQ that I have had in a long time. Our bartender/server, they are all called Dirty Dan, was fantastic. He made sure that we were entertained for the evening. We...were seated by the mechanical bull. This was even more entertaining. We had a great time and I suggest everyone to go there at least once while on vacation!! Thank you to all for a fantastic evening!!!More

My husband has been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. One visit and we will not be returning. The place was very unorganized. One waitress seemed to run the whole place (she was very good). There were other servers but she seemed the...most knowledgeable. There were boxes of supplies piled behind the entrance doors such as napkins, mayonnaise, and sugar. One of the boxes appeared to be leaking. My chicken was very dry. Also, diners were waiting a long time for their food.More

Went for ladies night and only found out after arriving at 6pm, specials and entertainment only start after 9/ 10pm. Also asked the waitress about free mechanical bull riding and she said every check gets a free ride. After we paid we waited for a...ticket or something to use and was told we had to keep the check and she threw it away. Made no sense since we weren’t informed when I asked before ordering nor did she offer to vouch for us or provide some proof we ate their to get the deal.More

Would give a negative rating if possible. Stay away. Even the waitress confirmed that it is a horrible. We saw another table walk out. A person in our party of 10 had a burger that was way over cooked, when we were told that they...come medium to medium well. This burger had burnt dry edges around the perimeter. When the waitress sent the burger back, we saw the owner tell her that it will be a long time before another burger could be cooked so they will take it off of the bill. Really 9/10 of us got our food, but 1/10 didn't and no way to expedite it. When the kitchen manager came over, he refused to let us finish our food, and asked us to pay the check and leave. Then, he found out that the owner said it would take a long time, he had a different take and said he would personally cook the burger. Then, when I said "get on it, cook the burger." He refused and told us to pay our check and leave. The place is a dump, the owner should switch businesses and the lovely lady that we tipped $20 cash, because she didn't create the problem, she find another place of employment. There are many signs posted around town looking for workers. Find another place that appreciates your business. If you go, don't order the burgers, the fries or the ribs. None were worth boxing up as we were being escorted to the door by the thug staff that the owner caroled up.More

Place seemed to have plenty of staff, but only the host seemed to be working. The mamager was there but didnt help or get the staff to do anything, so many just standing around. We were told it would be a half an hour wait,...although we could see plenty of open tables. Finally when we were seated, someone had to be told to wait on us. The food was sub par at best., not worth the wait.More

BBQ that hit the spot. Enjoyed the food and setting at the Roadhouse. Covid-friendly with outdoor seating. Everything was so good- ribs, burger, and pulled pork sandwich. Kids enjoyed a game of Cornhole while we paid the check.

Took my kids here for dinner. When we walked in there wasn’t a hostess, the bartender said “grab a seat and I’ll let them know you’re here.” So we sat down and looked over the menu. The place wasn’t very busy, as the dinner rush...hadn’t started yet. The waiter kept walking by us and never once even acknowledged us. Finally after 15 minutes of being ignored, we just got up and left. Poor service!More

Paige is the only saving grace for this place. Door men informed us there was only one waitress and there would be a 10 minute wait. We waited at the bar and ordered a bucket of beer. We received 4 beers opened and sitting on...the bar. No bucket no ice. Bartenders were slow and non caring. There were six of us and we all thought about walking out. Paige saved the evening. Never met her before but an excellent waitress. The best caring person in the place.More

Stay away unless you want over priced OK food and horrible service. Just went on 8/26/19 Monday a slow night. They're literally losing business because they can't even serve people. The table next to us left after waiting 30 minutes for the waiter to take...their order. Our food didn't come out at same time and was cold and not the quality you would expect for a 30 dollar steak. Wife ordered a margarita with salt and they said they can't put salt on it.? The hostess was on her cell and didn't even notice when we walked up. The bathrooms are gross. Surprised they're in business!More
