“Food was good! Service by Sarah EXCEPTIONAL!! :-)”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

After a week on Pleasant Ridge with the family and five great home cooked meals, we decided to venture out to the community for lobster. After searching all the sites for local fare we decided on Rooster Roadhouse. One thing we noticed on several sites was special mention about Sarah's welcoming service. Would you believe that our phone call to make reservations (recommended) was answered by none other than the fore mentioned Sarah, what a treat! Well we were not disappointed, we were placed at the best table in the Roadhouse and Sarah did not let us down. From her recommendations and explanations of dishes offered to packing up the abundant leftovers, she served with warm conversation and always a smile. We remain grateful for her contagious attitude and the special care she took with us (although I would venture to say, she treats everyone like that). Roosters Roadhouse, you have a gift, and its name is Sarah!!

“Good food, sketchy service.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Have been visiting family in the Bethel area for years. This was the first time we tried Roosters. Nice roadside location with ample parking in the back. Once inside we were given the option to dine in the first floor "formal" dining room or upstairs in the pub style room. We chose to go upstairs. Nice, rural Maine decore and one tv. Had to wait nearly ten minutes before a server greeted us. Once she realized that we were there, she paid a little more attention to us. The fried cheese stick appetizer was home made with almost too much cheese. Made for a lot of chewing. The main courses were good - blue cheese burger, cheese burger in paradise pizza and a pot pie. My daughter was a little disappointed with the pot pie. Said the chicken was too mushy. That said, would we ever go back? Probably.

“"Cheers"”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This place is awesome! It has a warm homey, with a sort of "Cheers" touch. (The old TV sitcom) It has consistently good food and the waitstaff is very personable and friendly. Between the prime rib dinner special to the soup and salad bar, you won't be disappointed in the value and taste of your meal. We are in Sunday River quite a bit and always make it a point to stop there at least once during our visits.

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We stopped in to eat here because the hotel we were staying at was awful, it was nice to get a friendly staff with a sense of humor to make part of our stay in Bethel a little better. Food was great! I would eat here again if I went back to this area.
