About The Classic Cafe at Roanoke
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.

The Classic Cafe at Roanoke Ratings and Reviews
We were in Roanoke with the kids to see the Gift of Lights and we're looking for someplace other than Babe's to eat. So glad we discovered the Classic Cafe! Everything was just perfect. Great service, excellent food cooked with quality ingredients.
We could tell that the chef and the rest of the staff take a lot of pride in their work. The jalapeño apple cobbler was AMAZING! We'll probably drive up from Fort Worth just to eat there again.
It was a cool evening. We elected to be seated in the bar area to listen to the classical guitar (who by the way was outstanding) but whenever the outer doors opened there was a draft on the floor making our legs cold. We have been seated several times in the dining area and I would prefer that for coziness and conversation.
I love The Classic and will definitely be back!
A true “Classic” and one of my favorites for many years. The food quality that chef Young’s provides is some of the best in the whole metroplex!! Francis always provides a level of service and just makes you feel like royalty, and his wine pairings are excellent.
Every answer was a "no'". We had a gift certificate that can't be used on the weekend. After booking a reservation via Open Tanle last night, we rec'd an email with a $20 gift certificate that we printed. Nope, that can't be used either. Our waitress was a smoker & that is all we could smell. When asked if dill could be left out of one of the entrees, we got a big fat no. The 6 oz wine pour was a tad over 4 ounces. The only positive was that the manager is a nice guy.
Food is always good. I had the schnitzel which is grown locally. It was tender, moist, and delicious. My wife had a steak which was prepared to her liking. We both started with the Classic Salad and ended by sharing the bread pudding, which was firmer than most and nicely appointed with berries and was pleasantly but not overpowering sweet.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Classic Cafe. We were warmly greeted as we walked through the door and were taken to a table in the main area of the restaurant. The lovely live classical guitar playing. The service was top notch and the food delicious. We were worried about prior reviews talking of the noise level and made note in our reservation that we would prefer a less noisy atmosphere. They did a great job explaining where the current noise level was a bit more due to a larger party and we were not sat in that area. Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge our request. We will definitely be back again.
We enjoyed our dinner, atmosphere and service. However, we did feel the portion of the chicken dish was rather small for the price. We loved that we were greeted by several however they didn’t introduce themselves so we didn’t know who they were. Hopefully we can catch names next time.
Best choice in Roanoke - over the past five years I've eaten at every restaurant on Oak St in Roanoke TX. While all are good, Classic Cafe is, hands down, the best service and food. If looking for true fine dining in the Roanoke area, you should try this place first. Creative menu items, and a terrific choice of beer and wines, all served by knowledgeable but friendly staff.
This was our wedding anniversary dinner out. All was lovely although they were running about 20 minutes behind on reservations seating. The food is fine dining & delicious & the service is attentive & anticipatory. It’s like a fine dining experience in New York or Paris. Very comfortable & lovely, but not inexpensive.
This is one of our go to places for a consistent high quality dinner with great service. The entire staff make you feel like you are a guest in their home each time. The food is consistently good with a good mix of the regular menu items and special dishes so you can have variety or go and get what you like from before.
The environment is noisey; people have to speak loudly to be heard at table and can be overheard by other customers if the level of noise changes.
The melon gazpacho was tasty way to start. The best meal of the four of us was the pasta and smoked salmon (very good). Steaks were not of the quality of Del Frisco's Grill. The best dessert was the Texas sheet cake (excellent). Julie was an excellent wait staff and provide very good recommendations on wine.
This was our first time to The Classic Cafe. It was a great dining experience. The wine list had many selections. The restaurant was quiet which made for nice conversation level. The food was so delicious. We both had the Jaegerschnitzel. Delicious! The brie appetizer was so flavorful with the cranberries. Definitely will go back. What a nice surprise!
My wife and I went here for our date night to try a new restaurant. Service was fine we were asked a few times on how each course of our meal was unfortunately we had no idea who the people were that was asking we just assumed they were affiliated with the restaurant. We were very impressed with our server she made sure that our table settings were positioned properly at all times. We had the fried calamari as a appetizer which was just ok a little light on calamari there were peppers and cauliflower used more as a plate filler. Our next course my wife had a kale salad and I had a cream of tomato basil soup. The kale salad disappointed the soup was very tasty. For a main course my wife had the salmon and I went with a loaded bake potato with asparagus. My wife enjoyed the Asian marinated salmon and stated the flavor was outstanding, the potatoes and asparagus was basic nothing special. We ended dinner with a very nice dessert sampler of three consisting of bread pudding, Texas sheet cake and creme brûlée.
My sister and her family were in town from Columbia MO for UNT's Parent's weekend for my nephew. He wanted a steak and they did not want to come all the way to downtown Fort Worth so I chose Classic Café and they LOVED it. They are a tough crowd, too. Service, food, wine...all of it they loved and they have a huge wine collection. Perfect evening!
The food was okay but not particularly remarkable for the price. I somehow lost my mind and ordered German food; big mistake. Never again. The ambiance was also overall poor. We sat in the music room and that was also a mistake. Tables are too close to each other. We could follow everybody's uninteresting conversations and, frankly, I was afraid to have any sort of conversation for fear of sharing it with neighbors. So don't sit in the music room. The service was friendly and basically excellent. This was our first time there. Not sure there will be another. This looks like a place to strike a real estate deal; so don't bring your date there.
