Our server was lovely but the overall experience was very bad. They hadn't turned the taps on in the bathroom so I couldn't wash my hands and had to find someone to activate them. The front doors were left wide open so the entire restaurant was freezing. Our nachos came out ice cold and I had to send my mac and cheese back as it tasted terrible. I don't normally do that or write bad reviews but this was an exception.
Had a good waitress, it was a bit loud to talk but the music was great after the dinner
We arrived at the restaurant just before 6pm for the table we had book for my friends birthday at 6pm. The door was closed and a guy who sitting at the podium just shouted through that it did not open until 6:30pm. I was trying to understand if there was another entrance if you have an earlier dinner booking but he just went, “I am the security guard, not the manager.” Which obviously didn’t answer my question, I was very confused.
So we were turned away in the middle of Covent Garden on a Saturday evening trying to find a different restaurant to go and celebrate my friend’s birthday.
What made matters 10 times worse was when I received an email from OpenTable (who I booked the table through) to say that Roadhouse had reported me as a “no show”. I did show, I WANTED to eat and drink cocktails there but I was turned away! I was not impressed to say the least.
Great restaurant! Happy hour was great and the cocktails were so good. Great night, would recommend!
Amazing night , food was good and atmosphere was great and band was awesome! Will definitely be back and will definitely recommend!
We had a fun night but probably landed up too early! Everything started getting going at 10.45 pm. The drinks were great. The nachos were a huge helping so didn't really manage to eat anything else.
Thank you guys for making a special gathering even more special! Had the best table in the house . Service , food and drinks excellent! Which showed when I left a heavy tip!
See you guys again soon!
Decent food and quick service. Did not realise it turns into a bar/night club.
All staff at Roadhouse were welcoming and informative, food was incredible and if you get there when it's half off the value is insane! Would definitely visit again.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place . I definitely would return to try more dishes. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
Nice place to have a meal with a bit of atmosphere.
Really helpful staff, food was lovely and the atmosphere fantastic. Will definitely be back
Atmosphere was good, staff very friendly and helpful. Food was just ok and we felt it didnt justify the price and for that reason I would not recommend this to my friends.
Roadhousecwas amazing they gave us excellent service. The music was amazing. The food was great I absolutely love there buffalo chicken wings!
For a great night out all in one this is the place.
Absolutely brilliant night out, Food was amazing value for money will definitely be coming again
Loved this place, great food, great service, great music, great vibe.
Fantastic venue and service was excellent too, drinks were a tad expensive though ... but apart from that cant fault Roadhouse.
Enjoyable atmosphere and some nice food including chicken pieces and fresh cooked fries. Cocktails were 2 for 1 with no exceptions. Well located in Covent Garden Piazza
Overall experience was good. Roadhouse has a lovely atmosphere but was a bit too loud to be able to hold a conversation without shouting. Food was your typical diner food but there were also some healthier options. Service was very friendly and accommodating however it did take a while to flag down a waiter for the bill at the end.
Excellent food and entertainment staff were very attentative
Great time and atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff
Rockaoke at Roadhouse is awesome!!!
Thanks for arranging drinks tabkes after our meal...great night had by all..we will be back!!
Came on a Friday for after work drinks with a friend, were able to book a booth and take advantage of the great happy hour!
Overall pretty good, food good. The place was quiet when we were there but around 10 pm it was loud and getting busy. Our waitress, who appeared to be very busy, needs to sort out her body odour, this is off-putting when eating.
Alice your hostess, was great. very welcoming, very friendly, made us feel very welcomed. Guila our waitress was funny, well knowledged and was very attentive. great night had by all. the music was great, and the band were great fun too.
Fun great music crowd
The ambience and decor is 'American style" diner with booths and also separate tables. We had a sharing plate of nachos. It was ok. Could have been better. They should go and see how they serve nachos in Mexico! Fresh, warm and flavourful! It was my first time there, had gone with a friend for dinner. But after we got (what I can only describe as) massive plate of nachos, it became difficult for us to order any food after that.
Its more foccussed on the bar, so the menu choice is limited to burgers and such like. Would I go there again? probably not.
The service was great, but I was very disappointed with the lack of gluten free options. Before choosing this place, I have checked the website for gluten free options and the website has an extensive gluten free menu, so we decided to book a table. Unfortunately, when we arrived, we were told that this menu doesn't exist anymore (even though it is still online) and we were given a different one with extremely limited options. There is only one main course, which is chicken wings and even though there are a few side dishes on the menu, not all of them are available. It's a shame, because the place is lovely, but unfortunately, we were mislead by the website, hence I don't think that we will return.
I've been to Roadhouse on a number of occasions, mostly for the cocktails which are very good. The food is not bad, and is reasonably priced.
From the outside you will probably think “eek what have I booked” but inside is great. The staff are great, the cocktail menu excellent. The choice of food is limited but the taste and quality was good. We enjoyed our visit
Great place. Great food and great staff. But please. Bring back the ribs 😋😋
After booking roadhouse on a whim I was a bit worried for 5 peoples different taste.
What can I say a lovely find and we all had a great time. Basic food choice but plenty of it and cooked well. Waitress was helpful and friendly.
Not for people that like noise while eating as music was playing the whole time.
Never experienced this sort of a bar before but will definitely return.
Great bar food. Value drinks with happy hours, for Covent Garden this was a really good value might out. Great atmosphere and we really enjoyed. Table is reserved for an hour and half, we were politely reminded of this- which was fine, but maybe 2 hours would be better for customers eating.
Food was mediocre. Cold nachos with the starter and Luke warm chicken main course but the main problem was the very loud bar staff. They were continually shouting to each other and jeering. Throwing around cocktail shakers which would then crash on the floor. Like a bunch of kids in the playground. No wonder it was half empty inside.
We have not dined here for a couple of years: it used to be a firm favourite. The menu is now less extensive but the value-for-money is still excellent and the location is ideal for a pre-theatre meal, since it is in Covent Garden near many West End venues. Our one previous grumble was that the background music used to be played over-loudly, so that conversation was difficult but this seems no longer to be a problem: note however that later in the evening there may be live music and a larger crowd, so quiet cannot be guaranteed.
Very nice place, staff very friendly, we will definitely return.
Had a great night of entertainment with Mikey being our entertainment at the bar excellent
Great atmosphere & service & reasonably priced food & happy hour was great value will be back!
Went with my sister and a couple of friends for a small hen do. I had the chicken under the brick and it was really good, cocktails were amazing as well but we were slightly disappointed by the fact that the band only played for just over 30 minutes.
One of the reason why we chose this place was to enjoy some live music, and it was disappointing only having live music for just over half hour.
Overall is a good place to spend the evening, but quite loud, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you want to do some conversation.
Cool atmosphere.. great tasting food. The nachos aren’t as good as they use to be! Great value if you arrive at happy hour x
