“Saved New Year's Eve for me”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I met the owner Sherry some years ago and called her at the last minute for reservations for New Year 's Eve for 6 people. Sherry did nit let us down. We had a wonderful time with fantastic food and wine. One one our favorite resturants ever.

“AWESOME STEAK...SO GLAD TO BE BACK IN FORT MYERS FL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

On my drive to Fort Myers I kept thinking about the amazing food at the Roadhouse Café and after being here 2 days I headed over for a steak and it was as awesome as any steak I have had anywhere...including the one that cooks at 1800 degree's...which does not hold a candle to this steak. Now for the music...you just cannot beat the great music at this place 7 days a week and the place is always busy...so if you are thinking of coming you should phone ahead so you are not disappointed. Now more than the steak is good as we have had many different dishes and have never been disappointed.
This place is a hidden gem at the end of a strip mall with a non descript sign...imagine if they actually advertised or put a bigger sign up other than Roadhouse Café...we would never get in so just leave the simple sign there...Sherry and all the staff always have time to say hello and welcome you back...even if it has been since last winter...keep up the great food and friendly staff.

“Good not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Slightly over-rated Two scallop dishes that were OK but not as good as they should have been-seasoning was mediocre. Service was off-the waitress all but vanished at dessert time.

“Great food & service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Went here with my husband for our 2 year anniversary since he loves jazz. We sat in the cave (small private comfy seating) and it was a great night. Lobster bisque was the best I had, he loved the jazz and the overall experience was a great one! :)
