We had a very good meal at the Roadhouse. The atmosphere is good and the service was very good but the food is the real hi-light of this visit. I started with the clam chowder which was delicious, if you are a chowder fan you have yo try it, creamy and tasty. My wife and I both had salads which... More

The food was fabulous with a very extensive list of menu choices. There is something for everyone at this establishment. The waitress we had was excellent, describing the specials and she know the details about all the food choices. She had tried all the items and was enthusiastic about them all.

Great place for a Cape Cod night out, appetizers are ridiculous, I could go and just order them though the dinners are equally impressive. Want a nice Cape Cod dinner and please everyone, this is the place to go for great steaks and great seafood. This owner knows what he's doing offering fabulous food at a fair market price and...

Great service. Great food. Full bar. I had a great meal with the oysters spinach salad and cod. Great dessert with the triple chocolate cake. My martini wine and brandy were superb. Definitely will return.

We ate here our last night in Hyannis. When we found out this place is owned by the same person that owns Black Cat we had to give this place a try. Again we lucked out and got a table right away without a reservation. Our server, Maureen, was wonderful in that she made suggestions on their rather extensive menu... More

My brother and I went to the Roadhouse this evening for dinner, the food was so delicious but our server was rude. I know when servers see younger people they've already profiled us and decided what level of service they will give us, regardless of how polite we are. I too am in the industry and I have never had... More

Fabulous fried oysters. The atmosphere in the piano bar area is lively, but on a warm day it was VERY warm in there. We've been here before and we will be back.

Well, let me start by saying this is our second time here at this restaurant. My wife and I have been coming to Cape Cod for the last 5 years. We ate once here our first time up, and the food was outstanding. The service was excellent and the staff was more than friendly. Not to mention, the atmosphere was... More

The staff is friendly, courteous and attentive. The entree choices are many and varied, imaginative and oh, so tasty. I have sampled lobster bisque at dozens of places and found the best on the Cape is at The Roadhouse. Tonight I came for the lobster bisque (again) and paired it with the roasted beet, goat cheese salad, added a Strawberry/Basil... More

We have been going here since 1991. This was our first trip back in a while. We were very surprised how it has slipped. The service was terrible, bread came with the main course (this never happened before ). My wife asked about her dinner salad and was told it did not come with the meal as of three weeks... More
