Use to dine here many times in the past. Loved their clChicken Diablo Salmon, and Salads. Unfortunately, during and after Covid...something changed. The menu options decreased and changed and quality was not the same.

We met family from MD @ Rode’s Fireside Inn last night. Rode’s never fails to provide a beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and excellent service. Our waitress Lauren was exceptional. She made good recommendations and kept tabs on our needs checking on drinks etc., regularly. I...highly recommend Rode’s, they go out of their way to make you feel welcome in Swedesboro! A great place to celebrate our nephews birthday!More

The French Onion Soup is the best I have every experienced. The menu is diverse ranging from a fantastic burger to a filet with awesome onion rings Never had a disappointing meal and the servers go out of their way to make your visit memorable.

Never been there before but got takeout for Easter since nothing open for inside dining. Was pleasantly surprised. My Wife and my meals were excellent. Only glitch was an error with our pickup order which they promptly corrected.

Very very overpriced! $9 for small crock of onion soup. Mediocre food at best. Been to many many restaurants so have much to compare it to. It's a shame because ambiance and waitstaff were excellent. Fine dining prices with awful food. Drinks are high also.

Rode's is a nicely decorated restaurant that is supposed to be the white tablecloth option for a night out. While the bar options are good, the food is just average and the service is below average. Maybe we caught them on a bad night, but...we haven't been back.More

We've been going here for lunch ever for the past two months and so far every meal has been exceptional. The soups are very good. I prefer the Crab Bisque, but all are good. The hamburgers are way better than the Barnsboro Inn. The BBQ...ribs are delicious along with the Pulled Pork Sandwich. The atmosphere is very pleasant with pleasing decor. And desert is a must to top off a great meal. There is a bar in center with TV's. They have an outdoor patio as well. Something for everyone.More

Stop in for a early dinner on a Saturday . Seated right away. Server Shelby was a delight. There was no rushing us to place order. Once order was placed it arrived quickly . Our drinks were refilled without having to request. Shelby was right...there too make sure our dinner and everything was good. Will return soon.More

Rode's is our family "go to" place because we can always get the same quality meal each time. although the extra room is nice, we prefer being inside because it is a more intimate atmosphere.

My Fiance and I booked our rehearsal Dinner at Rode's because 1st and for most WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE their Wings. We go out to eat to Rode's at least a hand full of times in one month. However they made our Rehearsal Dinner Special for...us and our families. We were given a private area with screen to make it an intimate event. We were able to order some aps in advice so when we arrived there was food already for us. We pick a menu in advice for our guest and were so pleased with how everything turned out. The staff at Rode's is great. Very attentive and fast with every order or request. WE LOVED our waitress Megan P. She is always pleasant and great. We request her every time we go there. I would highly recommend Rode's to every one.More
