    We really enjoy eating out at Open Road. The staff are always super friendly, the beer selection is outstanding, the food is very good and reasonably priced, as well. The fact that they have live music outside is really the icing on the cake. We lucked out last night since it was Memorial Day weekend, so parking was not at such a premium, but most times we go, parking is an issue and we have to park across the street from the gas station (not such a huge hassle, but still....). We're hopeful they can get that issue squared away before long.

    Open Road always has great food in a fun atmosphere. Our only complaint was how cold it was. We were seated in the front third of the dining room and every time the door opened, we were frozen. We even moved tables, but it didn't resolve the issue.

    Have been here a few times and it was the first time the food and service was not excellent. 2 Open Road burgers were not cooked well - premade burgers which maybe were previously frozen? They were quite “wet” and the bottom bun was soggy. The server wasn’t as attentive as expected. The nachos were really good though!

    Overall, we love going to this restaurant!! The atmosphere is lively and the food is great. My parents and I come here time to time when I come to visit, and it never disappoints. The only downside is the noise levels. Their music is typically pretty loud, so if you’re looking for a quieter spot I wouldn’t recommend it. But for food, definitely!

    We made reservations for 3, there were 3 empty tables, and yet they tried to seat us at a table for 2 with an additional chair. Seriously? Also no complimentary popcorn for us, only other tables, no big deal, but just speaks to bad management, bad customer service, and bad service in general. Not the first time, probably the last, we had been customers since they opened 10 years ago.

    Service was slow but friendly. They forgot my burger and didn’t notice until I said something; at that point, my son was almost completely done with his dinner. The Kentucky Bourbon Cake was super dry - very disappointing. Despite these faults, I love you and will return but will stick with the pb pie.

    4 out of the 4 in our party were disappointed with the quality and taste of the food. The steak was way over cooked. There was some sort of rosemary garnish on the fries which was not in the description. The steak tacos had onions which was not in the description. The roasted chicken was dry. The salad was pale and did not look appetizing. The onion rings looked amazing but they had no flavor. They were fried perfectly but needed seasoning and/or a zesty dipping sauce. They were only served with ketchup. I will say the pizza that we saw coming out for other orders looked really good. Guess we should have ordered that. The service was ok. The parking was horrible.

    Service is still lacking and waited a disappointing long time for simple service request like cream and sugar for coffee or butter for toast. Made it extremely awkward chasing people down with waiter out of sight. Food is delicious though… so hats off to chef and menu options.

    RESERVATION GONE AWRY. Made reservations on Open Table and commented that we wanted banquette seating for 6. It was sort of an important dinner. When we arrived early we were shown to a regular table that was even missing one chair. As we hunted down the extra chair and inquired about the banquette seating, we were hurriedly told by the hostess who was walking away that there was no availability and that those were for people with reservations. What the heck. Since our guests were all arriving and taking seats, we just let things go, but we were annoyingly staring at the empty banquettes in front of us.

    I visited with a few friends early on a Sunday afternoon busy with a couple of kid birthday parties. We were greeted in a friendly way and offered seating before our entire party arrived. Our group ordered an Open Road burger, fried chicken sandwich, vegetarian pizza, avocado toast and chicken fingers, all of which were eaten without complaint. For feeding four people with a per person cost of $25 including tax and tip, I believe we received a satisfying value for our visit and would easily return in the future.

    Enjoyed our dinner last night out in the bar area watching the games. Great selection of beer for the IPA boys and I loved the Life is Bueno Paloma cocktail. 2 excellent salads, very tender chicken, steak tacos were on point and my daughter inhaled her fancy grill cheese. Hand cut fries and popcorn made everyone happy. They even had great live music inside.

    Open Road is always a great place to meet people for a meal. Good food, great location and easy parking. We had a great meal, but we had to hunt down our check after waiting a while for it to be delivered. We were there for lunch during a work day, this put each of us in a bit of a bind for the rest of the afternoon after losing a half an hour out of our day.
