We were in town for NAIA World Series... took a chance on this place...

We should have left when our waitress told us not to get the soup of the day as it loooked a little funny "and" they were out of their smoked gouda mashed potatoes.... I asked for a baked potato with smoked gouda as a substitute and was told they couldn't do that....

ordered a featured salmon dish.... with brown rice since no potatoes... rice was cold, salmon very dry, tasteless and not hot either... I ordered a glass of white wine... OMG... didn't even serve in a wine glass... maybe 2 fingers of wine and it was room temperature...

my son ordered fish (cod) and chips... what a joke... 2 SMALL pieces of cod and luke warm fries...

my wife ordered fried shrimp... nothing special

we never saw a manager when we complained about food

Our hotel said they had heard similar comments and were more apologetic about our dining expereince than the restaurant...

Overpriced food for the quality....

“Decent food/poor staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We were traveling thru Clarkson and stayed a couple blocks away, so we stopped in for dinner. The meal of Ahi tuna was very good. The waitress on the other hand was obviously new. Didn't know the menu, brought out our entree before we finished our salads, didn't clear our dishes, but did stand over us as we reviewed the bill and gathered our money. If we're in Clarkson again, we'd probably eat elsewhere.

“Excellent view and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We all love seafood and the atmosphere is great at Roosters. The waitresses and waiters are friendly and the view perfect. They even have a dock for when we are out on the river we often stop by for lunch.

“One trip is all it took”

We were not thrilled with this meal at all. Everything seem to be frozen premade items. We went once & that's all it took. Wont be back
