The Classic Cafe at Roanoke serves a world-class menu in a casual, relaxed cottage setting. Fare is not limited by continent or region, and Chef Charles Youts’ weekly features are as likely to hail from the Pacific Rim as they are from his childhood home in West Texas. Chef Charles finds garden-to-table inspiration in the Chef’s Pantry garden, maintained on The Classic grounds since 2009, and his features regularly highlight the seasonal fruits and vegetables grown there. New American menu includes steaks, seafood, pasta, small plates.

I’d heard a lot of positive things and read many glowing reviews about the Classic cafe in Roanoak.
My dinner guest and I were both very unimpressed,with the cheap quality of the silverware, it was the type you typically see in a cafeteria or school dinning room. Every time I asked the waitress a question about a dish, her response was that “it’s absolutely delicious” ... it wasn’t.
The classic salad was good ,light and tasty
The tomatoe soup ( my guest eat) was delicious
The Lambchops ( 2 double chops) where very under par, fatty,under cooked and barely any meat.
(I’ve eaten lamb chops all my life these may have been the worst).
My guest had a ribeye ( no special sauce) a cheap cut, poorly prepared, lots of vains, tasteless ( we could understand why she was pushing the sauces) . The french fries were excellent, the other vegetables all good , the wine list isn’t bad but a little over priced for what is was.
We didn’t stay for desert , we won’t return.

We are foodies and are constantly challenged to try to find restaurants that measure up to our standards. Classic Cafe definitely does with fresh ingredients prepared in a gourmet cuisine with lovely presentations. We had a wonderful dinner and will most definitely return.

Service, food & drink were all 5 star. But unless my memory is failing, I thought a rack of lamb had 6 or 7 ribs, not 4.

Haven't been in a while, but it was worth the wait. The smoked salmon appetizer was just as great as we remembered. Tried the Jägerschnitzel and it was excellent. Great lunch date!

The Classic Cafe is on our rotation list of restaurants that are sure to please. We eat at The Classic Cafe on average 5 times a year both lunch and diners. It's about a 20 mile drive from our home , but we have always found it is worth it.

The food is wonderful and they prepare with fresh ingredients often harvested from their own garden. But the true spotlight is the warm reception you get from the moment you walk through the door by the personable staff. Even the chef comes out to check on everyone multiple times throughout your dining experience.

Dinner with family from out of town at Classic Cafe was a treat. Everything was so delicious and the service was outstanding. Always love going there as the food never disappoints. Enjoyed the seasonal shrimp and okra fritter appetizer, which was delicious. My husband had mixed grill and i enjoyed the crab topped trout. We even had dessert (sheet cake) which was good, although maybe not as good as my mom's :) Definitely one of our favorites, and can't wait to go back.

It is so nice to have a great restaurant stay... great. The food was delicious, the service was attentive but unobtrusive, and the ambiance was peaceful. We went to Perry's in Grapevine three weeks earlier and it pales in comparison with Classic Cafe. In the future, if we want an upscale meal we will stay with the sure thing!

Overall great upscale dinner place. Nice for a date, anniversary, etc but would be too pricey for most people to be “everyday dining”.

As usual, the food and service at the Classic Cafe were wonderful. We were celebrating our anniversary on a Tuesday night. We both started with the Classic Salad, which combines a tasty selection of organic lettuce, apples, spiced walnuts and blue cheese - pretty heart healthy. My husband loved the Mixed Grill consisting of sausage, duck and lamb garnished with an onion marmalade. It was quite a treat for him, since it's not a dish that I would attempt to conquer at home! Because The Classic Cafe harvests some of its vegetable offerings from the rooftop garden, I chose the Grilled Vegetables as my main course. Good choice - cooked to perfectly bring out their natural sweetness. After dinner we were pleasantly surprised by a complimentary dish of ice cream, fruit and chocolate. And the Pinot Noir was excellent, too! No better way to celebrate!

We've dined at The Classic several times for both a casual lunches & special occasion dinners. We've never been disappointed, whether its just two of us, family occasions or special friends. The menu offers a great selection of fine cuisine dishes and they are always prepared to perfection, both in their taste & presentation. The wine list is extensive and the option of glass only choices is very wise, especially for lunches. The wait staff has always been very courteous, professional and knowledgeable in regards to menu and wine choices. We also love the fact that herbs are grown locally. The Classic has become the pinnacle of our dining experiences for this area.

Christine was an excellent server, very attentivs, friendly and professional. Really enjoyed Chef Youts' food! Crab cakes and Warm Brie appetizers were delicious! Lamb chops were very tasty, especially the sauce. Finished with the Classic Coffee (which included a raspberry liqueur) and the dessert sampler- we chose the bread pudding, seasonal sorbet and jalapeño apple cobbler, each of which we'd recommend. We look forward to returning.
