Definitely a place to go for beers. Twenty rotating taps with a nice balance of microbrews from top ranked mirobrewers, and often a few that our tough to find. In addition, do not miss the "bomber" and specialty beers listed on the chalkboard near the ceiling above the bar. Now for the food, it's more a bar than a pub... More

Girlfriend and I stopped in this Saturday to grab a few beers they had been flooded a few days prior and there was a kinda moldy smell. They advertise 20 beers on tap but were missing 3 or 4 not a huge deal but when you advertise 20 keep 20 on tap. We had a huge breakfast so we only... More

Lots of beer choices on draft and you can sample. Food was good and our server did great with our party of 8. Mashed potatoes, burgers and crab dip were awesome and we liked the rest of the food too.

A very good selection of craft beer. Menu is limited but this is a small pub, and food quality is excellent. Service was good even though they were busy. I like the specialty aspect of this pub; way better than your chain restaurants.

The good: I struggle to put anything in this section because of how bad the bad is but to be fair I will. The beer list is quite good. There was clear thought out into the concept of this restaurant. The bar is really well designed with a nice, eclectic selection of spirits. The bad: I hope you have time... More

It's a simple equation for restaurants: good food + good drinks + good service = success! Someone is not adding correctly and, more importantly, not reading these reviews. I have gone to the Roasthouse Pub for a couple of years and found the baby back ribs worth crawling-on-the-ground-to-get-there yummy. For the dozen or so times that I have ordered them,... More

The food has gone down hill lately. A great selection of beer, but they manage to ruin it with a bad poor. Every beer they pour there is flat due to untrained servers. They need to learn to aerate the beer and give it some head to bring out the flavor. I complain about it every time I go there,... More

I would have rated this "Very Good" but the food has dropped the past 6 months or so. The beer selection is basically all craft beers, and changes constantly. That's awesome, which allows you to try a ton of different brews. The menu used to be much better, but in the past 6 months or so, they've revamped the menu.... More

My bookclub held a meeting at Roasthouse. The daily list of craft brews on tap are listed on blackboards on opposite sides of the restaurant. I chose a cider and it was crisp and satisfying. But the menu choices were food were limited. The burger choice varies daily and does not mean it is a beef burger at all. The... More
