From the minute you walk & are greeted by Rachel, to our server, Kelly then dine on delicious food prepared by Chef David, you are in for a fun, memorable evening. All the servers are friendly, efficient, & willing to make your evening enjoyable. Of you've never had Halibut cakes give them a try.

The Roost has been a really good find this year. Thanks to the waitress, Kelly, who we know from another restaurant, suggested we tried Roost . And we have not been disappointed. We have Kelky's excellent services. The atmosphere is comfortable, the chef prepares consistently delicious food & the servers are friendly, knowledgeable of the menu, & efficient. The hostess, Rachel, is friendly, accommodating to one's requests. She can be seeing helping clearing, cleaning & resetting tables .

Enjoyed dinner here with my wife and two teenage kids. Wife and I enjoyed a nice bottle of Italian wine along with our two different but excellent pasta dishes. My son had the chicken sandwich and my daughter enjoyed the tacos. The desserts were amazing! Surprised at the bill - the value here is very good! Very much enjoyed our dinner, highly recommend!

We enjoyed our experience at The Roost very much. They provide consistently good food and service. Chad and Sherrie have been our most recent servers - both are good and expressed appreciation that we choose to dine with them. Favorite menu items we have tried ,...prime rib, chicken wings, kung pao chicken, meatloaf. We love that the prime rib is a menu staple instead of an occasional special.

Pleasantly surprised. We used to dine at Randy’s and I heard a couple of his old menu items were available. Plus you can order wings from Cuckoos. I had the prime rib with coconut shrimp and walked out really satisfied.

Pleasantly surprised by the staff and great meals! While it seemed like the whole town was on a two hour waitlist down the street, we only waited 45 minutes!
Quieter and better menu than “bar food”.
We ate there two nights in a row and both times were excellent!

Service was great. The food was fantastic. Had the tacos and they were able to make them with chicken instead of steak. Best tacos I have had! It was a quiet calm atmosphere with prices not too bad. Highly recommend the Roost.

We had an excellent dining experience. The food was outstanding and the service was great! Our server, Kelly, worked very hard to be sure we had a good experience.....even asking the chef and the bartender to prepare items no longer on the menu. We lucked out; the ingredients were still available. It was a wonderful evening of good food and nice visiting with friends.
