When we travel we tend not to eat at chains it's kind of a rule not to eat anything we can get in our hometown, and this place is like a good old fashioned family eatery. The service was very friendly nothing pretentious. We tried the all you can eat buffet on a Friday night it had some really great breaded cod it didn't need an ounce of salt, very flavorful! Along with the cod there was, smelt, frogleg ( I almost tried but just couldn't) perch, crabcakes, clams and more. For meat-eaters there was some juicy brosted chicken, tender roast beef, ham, ribs etc. Typical salad bar, 3 kind of soups, cakes and fruit. The one thing that could have been better were the mashed potatos they were instant. Servers were attentive and it didn't seem to matter whos table they worked together. We sat near the kitchen and could hear many other orders not just for the buffet a lot of breakfast orders. We are generally good tippers, but this is the biggest tip we left for a buffet service was great! Would go back for sure!

This is the kind of family establishment that makes you never want to go back to a chain restaurant. Not expecting too much, but reluctant to visit another 'Pizza Hut' or 'Outback', my wife and I decided on the Road Dawg as it was closest to our hotel. What a great choice. The food was wonderful and the portions were generous. Service was warm and sincerely friendly, and the prices very reasonable, to say the least. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner - this is the place to go, and we recommend it highly. Wish there were more of this type of restaurant these days!

The Road Dawg Family Restaurant looks very basic from the outside. Just off the I-39, your expectations are relatively low.

Be prepared to be pleasantly surprised. I had the prime rib lunch special, which was amazing. The other members of our party got hamburgers and said they were some of the best -- if not the best -- hamburgers that they had had in a restaurant. Our waitress was also incredibly pleasant helpful and charming. This restaurant is quite the find, and clearly is popular with those who live in the area.

The name is kind of funny, but it is a real old-fashioned family restaurant. The food and service were unexpectedly good and the prices reasonable.

Great stop for breakfast. Friendly and fast service. Located in a complex that has the restaurant, a separate bar and a motel.
