The place is very nice looking, great view, and good service. The food was just OK and highly priced. I wouldn't say "over priced" because it seems most places in this area are more highly priced than I would expect.

We really enjoy eating here. The owners are very involved in the business. We speak with them every time we are here and they help serve. They always ask how the food is and make sure you are enjoying your visit. The food is made from scratch and you can tell that they really care about making sure it is... More

Very disappointed in this place, we have passed it several times and always wanted to stop , did and will never go back. The prices for the Food you get were absolutely absurd. My husband ordered this baked artisan sandwich, I assume trying to act gourmet, they really need to do some research if this is what they are going... More

Visited with friends - was pleasantly surprised to find a diverse and interesting menu! I had the Blackened Salmon and it was delicious. Having lived in the New Olreans are for 25 years, I am always skeptical of "blackened" dishes, but they nailed it! The menu was very diverse - from a basket of onion rings, to Ahi Tuna, and... More

I am one of those people who's holiday album is full of pictures of dining out. I love good food and quaint places. I have to say though, writing reviews isn't something I do often but after the third fantastic meal, The Road Toad earned it. Quaint is a good description for this restaurant. You can dress up or come... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on a rainy end-of-summer evening, and we loved everything about it. I had shrimp scampi, and my husband had salmon. Both were delicious. The stand-out for me, however, was my cream of mushroom soup. I could have just as easily had a large bowl with The Road Toad's wonderful bread, and I would... More

We stopped on the way back from Ligonier. I wouldn't say they were overly busy. They seated my husband and I in the dining room. We had a choice of the bar area or dining. I would say this is a wanna be exclusive restaurant, but is only a casual atmosphere. We were dressed casual as many of the patrons... More
