There is a sign when you walk in that says "Servers Needed" and this was probably the whole problem. The waitresses they had were working very hard, but it still took over 1/2 hour to get our breakfast, and that added to a drive that lasted over an hour to get there makes for very hungry customers. However, we agreed... More

Joette, ,So sorry your wait was too long. Thank you for traveling this far to try our breakfast. We are so glad our food was worth it, and appreciate that you will return. By the way, would you like a server position? You're right- we are short staffed. Thanks again for visiting. More

The good: Pleasant atmosphere. The bad: The food and service. I brought my family here two times, we were greeted by not so hospitable hostesses. The food quality was poor and the prices are high. The restaurant was empty both times we went or when we walk by on weekends. The bar clearly keeps this place afloat. This place could... More

It was a combo of Cracker Barrel and Cabela's, but the food was good. I had the Philly cheese steak and my husband had the tomato bisque and the pulled pork quesadillas. Efficient service. Loved the bathroom faucets!

We can always count on Riverbay for a good meal in a friendly atmosphere. The sandwiches are very tasty & the seafood dishes are fresh & delicious. Nice, comfy decor & fast, friendly service add to the experience.

Just loved to the neighborhood. People recommended this place. Came down to watch Thursday night football since it's a sports bar. Nothing says torture like a 60 year old woman singing 'Witchy Woman' by the Eagles through a karaoke machine during a Packers-Bears game. Guantanamo Bay should use this tactic.

I am so sorry about the karaoke on football nite. Thursday nite is our karaoke nite and has been pretty popular. We do cancel it when there is a local team playing. Please join us on Sunday or Monday..We have the NFL Sunday ticket and do get all games. We also have football food and drink specials on Sunday and... More

Travelling from Cape May NJ to Washington seemed quit easy via the ferry, but it wasn't...GPS 'died' and did not have a good map. Relying on road signs in Delaware was a mistake.

Best breakfast in the Annapolis area. Don't let the eclectic decor fool you. Awesome French toast! Breakfast benedicts are super fresh and omelet specials are also very good. Great portions without overkill, and Bernardo is awesome as chef.

Visiting family in the area and were told to try Roadhouse for breakfast. We were first customers of day, I guess we just like to eat earlier than most folks. Waitress was very friendly and helpful.

I met my neice here on our way home from Ocean City. She works at the ace hardware. This place has a huge menu for breakfast. I had the fried green tomato egg benedict. I am from Pittsburgh Pa. We dont have fried green tomato anything. Anyway, this is great. Great stop.
