    Sunday brunch was meh. Menu looked good but didn’t realize we had to do Sunday brunch. Made to order omelet was good but other brunch food was bland and not great.

    2 of 10 entrees were 86 so 20% of the entree menu was gone. If you are only going to serve 10 items try to keep it stocked. Party of 4 tried four other option and none were very good. Salmon was dried out. Sauces were bland. Service was what I would expect at a sit down fast food chain. Has great potential but needs some improvements.

    The kitchen was constantly burning something on the grill and made our eyes burn. The smell was very difficult to muster through. Two of us ordered the Tenderloin Farfalle and it was not good. The shrimp and grits and bbq were fine. The menu was extremely overpriced. The waitress was fine but we were left with empty drink glasses most of the night. Won’t be returning.

    Had made brunch reservations on a Saturday- I didn’t realize it was a brunch buffet. That being said, the food was good and enjoyable. I do wish there were non-buffet options outside of the Omlets and waffles. Otherwise, it was lovely.

    We are fairly new to the area and are exploring different places to dine when we have guests and we really enjoyed the buffet that Roost offered for Sunday brunch. The outdoor seating was wonderful and our server was attentive. The food was excellent. We look forward to our future visit to this eatery!

    The food exceeded expectations. I had shrimp and grits with the best sauce/gravy I’ve ever had. My husband had the salmon over pasta and 2 others had the filet without the pimento cheese crust. Everyone really enjoyed their meal. We will go again.

    The $25 brunch buffet was lacking for the price. Chicken strips from a freezer and brisket were the two proteins. The Brussel sprouts were good. The bill of fare seemed more like the comp lunches at a free investment seminar. Very disappointed.

    We knew they had Friday night music outside but didn't realize it would be SO LOUD no conversation would be possible at all on the patio or front seating. We chose to reseat to the back inside which sorta defeated our purpose of bringing friends to Roost. Disappointed there. The fixed menu for restaurant week had a good selection of things we enjoyed. The servings were good but not large. Our waiter was knowledgeable and right on target with all her suggestions. All the first courses were what you expect with the Gazpacho being better than we expected. Yes, it was a cold soup. The beef tenderloin pasta had excellent flavor but very light on actual beef. The smoked salmon was not a cold dish and our table-mate was surprised when it arrived. The pork shoulder entree got mixed reviews at our table due to the mustard based sauce. Overall the selection choice, price, and finding a spot to visit with our friends worked out for us.

    I was disappointed not being able to order from menu. I had looked at brunch menu. Did not realize it was buffet. Seemed messy and unclean. Had to ask who waiter was. Was not told about made to order eggs. Very poor value. Definitely not with $25. Was trying to impress someone from out of town. Failed at that!

    Online doesn’t state they only do buffet on Sunday. Makes it seem like you can order from the menu as well. Not very good buffet for $25 a person.

    After 3 or 4 excellent times at Roost we hit a big disappointment, discovering that Roost cannot handle a party of twelve - not our party (only 3). The party itself was fine - quiet and happy, but their presence sucked all the staff into the vortex, leaving no service - no water refills, no checking on the meal, slow on the to-go box, etc (we saw our waiter twice through the entire meal). The manager stepped up to pick up the slack, but from the maitre'd trying to seat us in the cacophonous bar area to the lack of any attention from our waiter, it was Roost's first big blunder for us. We'll give it another shot, though - the food is fantastic. And even with Jerry & the Atrics blasting away outside, the place is very quiet (in the normal seating area; not in the bar area).

    The food was very good. They don't take reservations for the outside patio, and said it is first come, first served. I made an indoor reservation and asked for a patio rable when I got there. I saw a few open, but had to remind them what they said. It worked out in the end.

    I made a reservation almost 3 weeks prior to the day. We got our table but it was not even part of the restaurant. We were isolated from the rest of the restaurant. People who walked in without a reservation got a table inside the the actual restaurant. So being away from the actual restaurant we were forgotten about. It took a long time to get our drinks and food. I ordered a salad and fries simple and it took 45 minutes to get it. I actually think they forgot about my order. The food was pretty good but I just wish I had more than 10-15 minutes to eat my food.

    The place was nice but the beef pasta dish we ordered was swimming in oil to the point it almost made me feel sick. Not sure if other dishes are like this or if it was just mine and my wife’s. Would just recommend you not get that dish unless you love to drink oil.
