This is an odd place. For many years it was the same and we liked it a lot. Just quirky. Lately it seems to change hands a lot and you never know what you are going to get. This time it was good again and we had a nice dinner. Now it is a Roadhouse. Which, I feel, is not really an attractive thing to tack to your name. I think of Patrick Swayze. But it was good and we will go back and try again. And hopefully it will not have changed hands again. They had music when we were there. I do miss the gift shop they used to have however.

We visited the Roadhouse Restaurant last year on our visit to California and looked forward to a return visit. There is a gorgeous beach across the street, so we like to visit the beach then eat at the restaurant. Last year we raved about the restaurant. This year our experience was only average. The salad was fresh, the soup was very good and the sandwiches were delicious. The prices were a little too high and the service was just okay. We waited several minutes for our server and she seemed distracted and disinterested. She served our water in two small plastic cups. Every other adult patron had glasses but the kids in the restaurant were drinking from the cheap plastic cups we were given.

Had breakfast twice, both times the food was great and very filling. Also had dinner on the Tuesday. Tuesday night is one of their special evenings when Taco's are $3 and beer $3.50 a pint + live music. The food + live music were excellent but be warned it was very popular with the locals (always a good sign) so try and book in advance.

We had a delightful here just before a granddaughter's graduation. I was initially concerned as we saw musicians coming in, but the singing and background music was fabulous. I had halibut that was excellent. I have a dietary restriction and the chef adjusted my dinner so that I, too, had a flavorful and beautiful dinner. One of our family had vegetarian lasagna--also excellent. Others had fish sticks and pizza! All were very good.

Interesting restaurant along coastal highway 1, The fried calamari (8 dollars) was very bad, the breading/batter was so crunvhy that the calamari were actually sharp -like biting through glass. The rest of the food was average diner fair, nothing special here.
supposed to have historic past, but none evident now.
