My boyfriend had an omelettes which was fluffy and the best part was you could add griddled muffins as the toast. Great... More

We decided to try Roost because we heard great things about it. When we got there the server showed us a wonderful table and brought us a cocktail quickly. The food was delicious and hot which is what my husband likes . I would definitely return to this restuarant in the future.

On Dec. 31 my husband and i went to Roost for dinner. We were seated and ordered drinks. We felt we were being rushed to order. The drinks were good and within 6 minutes of ordering, our dinners were on the table. So much for slow roasted chicken. The chicken tasted good but pink inside. Total turnoff! The short ribs...

My wife and I had been to the Roost many times when it was in York. This was our first visit to the new location and it did not disappoint. A large dinning area with ample room between tables. Nicely appointed. The food was as we expected, excellent and the service was attentive.

Looking for relaxed setting to take family and friends up for holiday for breakfast. Roost was just the spot. Great atmosphere, superb food and exceptional and friendly staff. Large group all had something different to eat and none were disappointed. Great food prepared well and all served at once. Kudos to the kitchen! Setting was perfect to share good times.

The pancakes were delicious, the Maine crab omelet was out of this world, and the waitress even gave us a great recommendation of what to do next (there's a beautiful beach walk nearby). One thing that I would improve- don't charge for real maple syrup!
