We weren't too sure about this place when we entered the building that houses it, but once we opened the door we could see it was a great local hangout that ended up having great food. My daughter said the wings were the best she'd had in a long time and I was able to get a sandwich on a... More

A good local place for some wings and a few drinks. It's fairly low key and the staff is friendly. The prices are good and we haven't eaten or drank anything we haven't liked. The games are always playing on the televisions. There is a pool table and often live music.

Good food, college atmosphere, live music, karaoke and all kinds of beer. Friendly atmosphere. If you are physically challenged go around the back entrance. Front entrance is a very steep, steep staircase.

My fiancé and I always choose The Roost for our "laze and lunches". Pub fare and great cocktails are married with phenomenal wait staff. It is the place where you feel known on your first visit.

Not my cup of tea. A typical bar. Nothing about the atmosphere is refreshing or new. The staff are fine but some of them seem more caught up in each other than their jobs. The drinks are very basic and the food is low grade pub food.
