After a long day of road travel, we checked into our hotel and were told their restaurant was closed for renovations. Last thing we wanted to do was get back in the car but we did, and thankfully the Original Roadhouse Grill wasn't far away. We were greeted by friendly staff and a tall ice cold beer helped soothe our nerves. Food service was a bit slow but the place was packed. The steak was flavorful and made the wait worthwhile. Thanks for being there for us....we really needed it.

Six of us had a late lunch/early dinner. Friday. Server was Marissa and she did an outstanding job. All six meals were prepared exactly as ordered and all delicious. Both tri tip orders cooked perfectly.baked potatoes and onion rings great as were the sliders. Pork chop also great

Terrible service made even worse by the worst food I have ever had at a restaurant. Waited 30 minutes to place our drink orders which were overpriced and came in the smallest glasses I've ever seen. 15 minutes later took food order. Over an hour after we arrived finally got our food. A rib eye steak that could not have been more than 1/8 inch thick, tough and full of fat. Ordered a glass of milk which never came. I seldom write but could let this experience go by without warning others to stay away.

We just happened to be here when a group of 40 also were here. I'm thinking it's not really fair to rate a restaurant with such a large group .... but, here goes.

We asked the host not to sit us by the large group. The noise was loud and we knew we wouldn't be able to hear each other talk. He did anyway. So, when our server came we asked her to move us. She did. We were very thankful. Being moved meant we had a different server in the bar. She definitely was one busy lady. At first we weren't thrilled with the service. It was very, very slow but actually it wasn't the server's fault. It was just extremely busy and they appeared to be a little understaffed for such a large group.

Between the four of us we had the sirloin steak, ribs and chicken. The sirloin steak was good and cooked perfectly. The ribs and chicken were very much overcooked. The ribs had very little bbq sauce on them. It might have helped if we had asked for more sauce. That was our fault. We also didn't get drink refills.

Would we go back again? Probably not.
