What a great meal. I had the chicken livers turnip greens and whipped Potatoes. My friend has the chopped steak whipped potatoes and green beans. The biscuits and yeast rolls were so so good.

Good home cooking like you would experience at a Grandma’s house. We enjoyed a nice dinner with ham, baked chicken, veggies and biscuits and corn bread. Priced fairly and kind service. Overall, comfortable home cooked meal experience.

Stopped COVID-era..so ate outside on a Ben h. The egg/bacon/cheese biscuit was gorgeous. My husband stuck his nose up at first then ate half of it. I would order two if you are hungry—not that big. And the link sausage are lovely. All around a...great stop on our road trip.More

Had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated on a busy Saturday morning but the meal was worth the wait. Great service and great food. We loved the biscuits! We had eggs over medium and the eggs mixed with your choice of meat. We...also sampled pancakes and French toast.More

We visited the Roanoker for breakfast the first time. We had previously had lunch and dinner and always great food and service. I order the sausage canoe and it was the best scrambled eggs I ever had. Moist eggs with ample sausage and real cheddar...cheese. Biscuits very fluffy an thick. I did not think the sausage gravy was the best but I will defiantly return for breakfast and try their other entrees. Our waitress was Shannon and she was very attentive and knowledgeable in what was good to order.More

The food compares to what you would find in a cafeteria. It was not impressive. The service was fine. Staff was a bit abrupt, but not rude. It could stand to freshen the menu and attitudes.

I go to Snowshoe WV a lot to ski. Driving thru Roanoke...I always see The Roanoker and have wanted to stop. I finally did and was glad. Yes..its canes and walkers. Yes..the food is great. Don't hesitate to stop. I won't from now on!

My wife and I are former residents of the Roanoke, Virginia area. We try to make a trip back to Roanoke when we are able. When we are in Roanoke, we try to have a meal at the Roanoker. The food and the service are...good and the restaurant gives off that hometown feeling that my wife and I enjoy. The food is not fancy, but it is tasty.More

My parents came to visit and we decided to check this place out for dinner. It’s your typical diner food. Kind of reminded me of mels. My parents obviously loved it! They have a lot of Choices and everyone left happy.

They do have a "party room" space -- I would call and check. Hope it works out!
