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 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!

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.

Celebrated a friend's birthday with lunch. It was her first time at the restaurant, and she was most impressed. Said her crab cake was the best she ever tasted, and my trout was perfection.
Our meals began with their delicious classic salad. Our attentive, friendly waitress added to our dining pleasure.

Classic Cafe has never disappointed! My wife and I have dined there on our wedding anniversary several times, and have always enjoyed a great meal and fantastic service.

The food is always awesome. Our favorite entree on our last visit was their magnificent jagerschnitzel, andthe jalapeño apple pie was out of this world!

The staff has gone out of the way to make every visit memorable. On special occasions they’ve even surprised us with “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Anniversary” notes written in chocolate on our dessert plates.

I highly recommend the Classic Cafe for any time you want to unwind with an awesome meal and good company.

Great Mother's Day brunch. Nice to be able to make reservations for a party of two and have them honored by the restrauant. Staff were all pleasant and happy to be serving. Food was good (although the Ahi Tuna was slightly over cooked for my tastes). Nice quiet atmosphere as well.
The Classic has been excellent for more than 20 years!

Went there for our anniversary. Ambiance was very good. Much less noisy than most chain restaurants. Service was excellent. Menu is diverse with a bit of foodie flair. Prices are appropriate for what they offer. As for taste, both our meals were very good but my beef tenderloin was a bit overdone for my taste(medium rare), but the optional vinaigrette sauce saved it. The risotto was very tasty but I would have expected two cakes instead of just one. Overall, a very nice place for a special occasion.
