We wanted to have a very nice dinner after graduation and this restaurant was recommended to us. This was an excellent suggestion, we had a wonderful meal and the expense was not too much. The salads were larger than expected and the small plates were also nice portions. A very good experience overall.

The awning outside says it best- really anytime is a good time to try Room 38.
The drink selection is wide ranging - nice wine selection and the service was very good. The small plate selection offers great variety for the not so fancy eater to the more complex. Everything we ate was great- served at the appropriate temperature and very nice presentation. This was a fun time for co workers to meet, greet And celebrate!

Loved the Chicken'd B&G - the bacon gravy was great, full of bacon flavor. The service was wonderful - and you can't beat bottomless mimosas!

I wanted a good greens salad and I had one. It was very good. They have a real interesting menu with good appetizers and items I would like to try.

There are very few table tops and the seating is uncomfortable.

Unfortunately we won't return

Room 38 is a small restaurant with distinct seating. The staff is friendly. We shared the Spicy Chicken Queso Dip and the Mahi Mahi Tacos. The queso dip was incredible. It was served with chips, carrots and celery. The tacos were good but not my favorite. They seemed a little bland compared to other fish tacos I've eaten. I wouldn't order them again but the queso dip I definitely would. Other people in our party ordered the Black and Blue salad and said it was delicious. The portion size was huge. They easily made two meals out of those salad.
