The food was amazing but the drinks were not that good. After forgetting one of our appetizers , they also forgot to discount our bill for ladies night by $50. Food was tasty but the wait was long and half of the stuff we ordered never came

This was our first visit to Roadhouse Depot and we're happy to have gone. When we were greeted the hostess immediately apologized that they were understaffed. We appreciated her giving us the heads up. Next our waiter apologized for being understaffed. Both were gracious, prompt, and delightful. Our waiter spoke knowledgeably to the food and beverage options, providing us recommendations. Our meals were prompt and delicious. All of us would happily order our dishes again, Brussels appetizer, Poke Bowl, Lemon Chicken, and New York Strip. The New York was the only item I could see room for improvement as it was too thin of a cut both for the preparation and the price. That aside, our son enjoyed it and flavorful sauce it was served with. Understaffed? They never let it show...service was attentive, food was prompt and everyone had a smile on their face. Will happily return!

We tried getting bottomless mimosas and our waiter denied all of our IDs when we are all 21 and one of us was 22. Said he wasn’t going to be rude and take them but they are clearly fake ids. Can’t believe someone has a job where they can say a real id is fake. Oh well they lost out on business and we will never go back.

The atmosphere and service were absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and hit all the right notes! Whether it was the staple of Chicken Wings or the Thai Peanut Noodles, everything was beyond tasty. If you’re looking for a nice spot to go on a date or just to hang out with friends, this should be your new spot!

A local favorite for us. Great place for a burger and beer, but a lot of variety also. Food and service never disappoints. Not very crowded for a Thursday lunch. Only problem is needing to use the paid parking garage, but that is getting to be a much more common problem in Boulder.

The experience began with a highly enthusiastic hostess. After that point, the service was slow, but the food was good. My husband returned his food because it wasn’t close to hot. My burger was delicious but the sides were wrong. All that said, I will go back and give it a second chance.

Had an 8:45 reservation, was seated at 8:45 but then none of the employees ever came over to us again. It was not busy and we could see wait staff hanging out in the kitchen but we were completely neglected. We waited for a while, but after 9:00 passed without anyone even asking if we wanted drinks we stood up, informed the hostess what was going on and left. Huge bummer.

Ordered the lobster special. Bisque had no lobster and was not like any lobster bisque I’ve had, not in a good way. The sandwich smelled terrible and lobster chunks were not good. Maybe OK for drinks but won’t go back for food. Ugh!

My husband and i have eaten here 3 times now and the first two times were great. Everything was cooked great on those occasions and service was fast and very friendly. Our last vist for valentines day this year was pretty disappointing. Our go to foods were overcooked by far. The veggies sides on both dishes were burnt, the pretzels were somehow soggy and burnt at the same time. The enchiladas were delivered to us cold and overcooked at the same time as well. The only good part of the filet mignon was the very center. I hate to leave a bad review but for the amount of money we spent on such a special occasion, we were pretty sad. We'll probably come back at a time when we think the cook wont be under so much pressure as we are pretty understanding people.

What a wonderful find. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next night. The food was fabulous, the wait staff was very attentive, and quite funny. The pretzel/queso appetizer was delicious, as the the filet. We will definitely be coming back.

Family dinner out with my teens. It was so nice to sit down at a restaurant. I wish I noted our waitress’s name. She was so friendly and the right amount of attentive. Great ambiance for a casual meal with friends or family. Lots of menu options to appeal to several different tastes.

Service was just plain awful. Had to remind him two or three times about drinks, etc. Finally had to get up and find hostess and ask her to have him come to table because we were hungry. Thai salad with ahi came with NO dressing. Pretty dry. Our other orders were okay but nothing special: potato chip nachos (huge portion), spicy flatbread (ok), Roadhouse burger au jus (really huge).

So glad to find a place to eat inside on a cold and snowy day while traveling. They space everyone out very far so Covid risk was very low and they followed all precautions.

We loved sitting outside on the patio! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and bloody marys! Our wonderful waitress even added horseradish to our yummy bloodys! We will definitely come back and support this business during these tough times! Bring extra layers and a good attitude and you'll enjoy yourselves on the patio!
