This is only my second time, but the food is always wonderful! It’s a few steps above “bar food” but still holds that taste and experience. The burgers are charred perfectly and so flavorful and the fresh fries are perfect. Very nice staff. Will continue to bring friends here to have a good time!

Open road still has the best grilled shrimp anywhere. The blackened salmon was excellent and their wines by the glass are great.

The evening went pretty much as expected, food, drinks and service consistent. I like to have girls night at Open Road, fun ambiance and good food. My only note is that the waitress engage more explaining the drink options. Once I requested the paper menu I could see more in detail the offers.

I have been to Open Road many times and love it. Yesterday, I made a reservation on Open Table for 6:15 pm, showed up for reservation to find out that the air conditioning was not working on a 90+ degree day. Suggest that if this happens again, those customers with reservations are contacted prior to arriving.

This was our first visit to restaurant. Staff were friendly. The food was scrumptious and delivered quickly. Noise level was a bit high for us, but we look forward to coming back to check out more menu items. (So many appealing items on the menu!)

Nice place for a small group of 6 to dine outside while covered - server was very nice and food came out timely and as expected. Cons - The noise level was a bit louder and hard to have conversations with the group of 6. The fans were running the whole time on a cooler rainy day which made us a little chilly. Pros - I am sure the burgers were wonderful but I was being good and had the tuna which was very healthy and fresh. Our sever was very good and the bathrooms are quite nice! I wish I could have had a beer but it was lunchtime so I had to stay dry!

Came for Mother’s Day and while we LOVE this restaurant normally, this particular Sunday was not good at all. Service was slow, probably understaffed, the food didn’t come with the correct sauce (& no one brought it out even when asked). It was just a dismal visit at a place we always have previously had excellent times.

We were so glad to be back! Open Road had been one of our favorite restaurants prior to the pandemic and while we enjoyed takeout over the past year, we were so glad to share brunch as a family at the restaurant again. Food was fabulous as always and wonderful to see the staff!

We are new to the Open Road, but big fans. The food was outstanding, we had the lettuce wraps, onion rings, chicken and steak salads and a wonderful dessert called Ice Cream Cake. The bourbon smash was also a highlight

Server was so observant and thoughtful he brought soda water when I dropped a fork full of mac n cheese on my daughter's coat. Mac n cheese was superb-- some of tye best I have had-- and when my daughter found the kids marina spicy the server brought her buttered noodles instead which she loved. Brussels sprouts without bacon were great; I loved my fish tacos and hubby enjoyed his French dip. Not a huge menu but what they had was excellent.
