Tried French Toast Roak beer in Midland MI while on vacation. Loved it and decided to drive through Detroit on way home to purchase some and have lunch. Dined on patio and ordered the Vegetarian Panini with coleslaw. All very good! Coleslaw made on premises. Service was good also.

I called the day of my reservation and spoke to a women to add 4 more people to the group. When we arrived the host and manager both said they had no clue what we were talking about and the server acted like it was our fault and he told us we would have to figure it out.... Finally another table opened up and we were seated. Our server then basically ignored us most of the night, at one point we were trying to get another round of drinks but he would not even look in our general direction. Our food took over an hour for two sandwiches, three pizzas, cheese bread and a salad. All three pizzas were burnt and he forgot about the salad. Two of the tables that were near us sat at the same time ate left and were seated with new parties before we even had our food.

Not crowded on a Friday night and our waitperson was excellent. Beer flight was good. Ordered two pizzas and two paninis; one pizza was a little overcooked while the paninis were just bland. No sauce or condiments; very disappointing.

pizza was pretty awful. The one with goat cheese was all ricotta. The BLT pizza couldn't keep toppings on it because there was practically no sauce

Beer was ok, went there for charcuterie but apparently they took it off the menu a year ago.... haven’t “had time” to update the online menu. We will go back for the chocolate peanut butter beer for sure!!

The beer was great. The food was average. Our pizza was not made as ordered. Service was also slow and they actually skipped our reservation and gave our table away because they were busy (which pretty much defeats the purpose of making a reservation). We were seated within 20 minutes but it was still frustrating.

Hostess seemed annoyed that we dared ask for a non-high top table but our waitress was amazing and the food was fantastic.

The service was awesome, the waiters were very friendly and attentive! We got a antipasto salad and margherita pizza, the pizza was delicious. Oh and most importantly the beer- Zenyatta is my favorite so I'm biased- but it was great as always. It is a gem with great food, service and beer, we will definitely be back!

The pizza had such a fresh taste. All the ingredients right down to the delicious crust! The Turkey fresca sandwich was delicious as well. My husband & I split the two which was plenty of food. We will def recommend Roak to friends & family.
