Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. We had been here before and enjoyed it but this time even though the food was great and the cocktails amazing I felt the staff were rushing us through. I understand it was a Saturday night and they are probably busy and want to get as many people through the door but our waitress seemed to hover next to our table and every time we finished something was in a rush to take it and move us on. Before we could even order a last drink or ask for the bill it was plonked on our table and asked if we would be paying by cash or card. My husband was in the toilet so I said I wasn't sure as he was paying and she rather rudely said she would be back in 5 mins. Safe to say no tip was given."

  • "The roadhouse has a great atmosphere, def a great place for a stag or hen night or birthday party. The staff were lovely. The food was okay. Limited vegetarian and dessert options. We pre booked online for the 50% off our food bill deal which when the bill arrived was what I would have been happy to pay. The food is def not worth the full menu cost. Drinks very reasonable price. A fishbowl worked out at £36 for 4. Overall nice enough place if you are under 40 but try and prebook if you can."

  • "Service was great...smiling happy waitress. Food was tasty. Not necessarily the best American diner but pretty nice food. Note: we booked last minute and they couldn't find our open table booking - apparently open table take about 5 hours to update bookings..."

  • "Great place to eat, if you book the 50% off food bill, thats about the price it should be in my opinion,Served by a lovley and charming waitress called Gina, we had 2 courses each, 4 bottles of beer, 4 JD and cokes, Total bill £48 Bargain, and thanks, We left after the meal, and really enjoyed the meal, Go back again , Yes only at the 50% offer We took the 6.30 sitting and would say, thats a great time to eat after watching the Phantom of the Opera, and we had a great time in London"

  • "Although our visit was a flying one, because we had a pre theatre dinner. The service was very quick, attentive & friendly. We booked though open table so had a special offer 50% off the whole a la carte menu. + because it was happy hour 2 for 1 on all cocktails. Making our meal very good value. Almost too good to be true! The food was tastes too 👍"

  • "This basement venue in Covent Gardens has a lively and noisy ambience which is obviously enjoyed by its mainly young clientele. It opens at 17:30 and until 19:30 operates a "Happy Hour" that attracts many to take cocktails or other drinks. For older patrons such as ourselves, the attraction of this timeslot is that a 50% discount on food is also nearly always available through Opentable and this is fantastic value for a pre- evening theatre or post-matinee meal. The portion sizes are huge and the quality of the meat (steak, chicken, ribs for example) is excellent. Service is attentive and in the 4-person booths mainly used for meals there is adequate privacy although the pop music may mean that raised voices are required for conversations."

  • "Very fun atmosphere with lovely American style food and amazing value on food and drinks."

  • "Roadhouse is one of those places you go for the atmosphere and the bands. I went there as i wanted a good burger and that was exactly what I got. The hot and spicy chicken wing starter was an impulse when I go there but a good one. The service was exceptional, smiles and politeness from every waitress. A totally enjoyable evening."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Dark and gloomy venue due to being lower ground and of dark decor. Service was average as was the food, not somewhere I would return to given the breadth of options in the area"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "We were a party of three who went to the Roadhouse for a pre-theatre meal. The location on Convent Garden is perfect and the value for the location is amazing. As we were eating early it was happy hour - I had two delicious cocktails and my friends shared a bottle of wine. All at very reasonable prices. We had a sharing platter and some garlic bread - the ribs in particular were absolutely delicious. You certainly get plenty of food for your money and all the staff are welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend."

  • "Chose this restaurant as I was meeting a friend who was catching a train at euston at 9 so thought it would be somewhere quick with a nice atmosphere to get something to eat. Really nice ambience however the service was dreadful. took 15 minutes for them to take our drinks order we then ordered a started and a main. The starter took 45 minutes to come after we chased it up twice. We allowed ourselves 2 hours and it took over an hour and a half to receive our mains. The waitress wasn't helpful/ apologetic and we ended up having to pay the bill whilst eating our mains for fear my friend would miss her train. Wouldn't go back if I was on a time schedule."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Had the 2 courses and a cocktail for £14.95 deal. That menu was only for appetisers and mains, but when we mentioned we'd like to have a main and then dessert, we were obliged with a smile! As we also got there during happy hour, we had lots of lovely and very affordable cocktails before we'd even started dinner, and then the inclusive cocktail was great - nice and strong! Our waitress was outstanding, friendly, cheerful, helpful, attentive without being overbearing. The food was great - not fancy, but great quality and came quickly. Very very happy and would definitely book again."

  • "roadhouse is a place to go for fun and food is good but secondary great atmosphere, good service and good food but topped off by great value great for a fun evening"
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "I was really impressed with roadhouse, the atmosphere is great and really sets it apart from all bars and restaurants in the Covent garden area. Great for cocktails especially with the 2-4-1 happy hour! Food and service was great really authentic American food. Only downfall for me was the fact if you just wanted cocktails there is very limited seating and it could have done with bar stools around the main bar, and when asking about seating we were referred to speak to a waitress, which was somewhat difficult. But the overall experience and atmosphere was great!"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "Really good service, booked it with 50% off, tasty, hearty food with good portions!"
    dined on 10/06/2014
  • "Really good value! My friend and I had the 50% off food bill option and the time of our meal coincided with Happy Hour - so incredibly good value considering we had cocktails, food and wine! Service was excellent - from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were given a booth so were very comfortable. I can imagine it can get very busy and noisy on Fri and Sat evenings, we went on a Monday evening and it was quite busy then."
    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "Great food typical american . Very friendly waitress. Great cocktails very american style decor "
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "The only issue is that there are very few vegetarian options other than that it was really good, our waitress was really attentive and nice."
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "Good fun and atmosphere. Negative was the rush of the waiting staff, and inconsistent information. We were running a bit late, called to advise so we wouldn't miss our reservation, was advised by the hostess that a party booked for the booth at 8pm, but not to worry as they would take care of the expected party. However, once seated the waitress kept advising us that the booth was booked for another party. We ordered some more drinks she took the order and then came to ask if we would be happy to drink our drinks elsewhere as the party had arrived and it was already after 8pm. We told her we would so long as she could find as another table, which she had no intention of doing so we cancelled our drinks and took our money elsewhere"

  • "It was my first visit and the food and service was fantastic"

  • "This was a bar with a difference. Live band (on a Tuesday night!) and motorbikes hanging from the ceiling. Great fun, food fantastic value."
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "We've been to the Roadhouse before for dinner and it's always been a fun and upbeat place to eat, but on a Friday night it was a completely different experience. You feel like you are eating in a club. I would reccomend for mid-week food and cocktails definitely but not for a meal on a Friday night, unless you are on a Hen do or Birthday party."
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "This was the most amazing meal I've had in a long time. It is the perfect place for a date or hanging out with friends! The food was delicious, the drinks were outstanding value and the staff were lovely. I'd recommend it to a friend without doubt! "

  • "£73 was our total bill for 4 people all having a starter and a main course That's includes 12 cocktails and 8 Sol lagers. Yes its true! Had their 50% off deal through Open Table. Booked for 7.30pm and enjoyed their 2 for 1 drinks (including cocktails) from 6pm to 7.30pm. Party place - waitresses are lovely and will do anything to help. Brilliant time as usual. Just love tis place. Wish the Rockaoke and bands started earlier though :) "

  • "I have been to this restaurant a few times before. It is good for meeting up with friends for a meal and cocktails. Service was good and the ambience, but unfortunately the food isn't as good as it use to be. Standards have dropped which is a shame."
    dined on 26/05/2014
  • "Booked a pre theatre quick and easy hassle free dinner in CG and that's exactly what it was. 50% off food offer is good but would not book here otherwise. Venue is not my personal taste, but food was what I was after on this occasion. Service was what one would expect."
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "This is my 2nd visit to the Roadhouse. Took advantage of the 50% off food offer and this time went later in the evening to eat at 9.30pm Food is good quality American style food. We had the potato skins, fried camembert and both had bbq chicken melt. My only comment about the food would be that there was too much bbq sauce on the chicken, but that's quite minor point. Last time we ate there was early but this time it was later and the music volume had been pumped up by at least 200%. A little later there was live music which was also very, very loud. The people there seemed to enjoy it, however for me it was too loud and we couldn't even talk to each other across the table so gave up. I came out with my ears ringing. Maybe I am too old :)"
    dined on 22/05/2014
  • "Good quality food for the money. Must get the filet steak starter - was lovely. Wouldn't go for a romantic date. Loud, trashy and fun"
    dined on 21/05/2014
  • "Very good service, food was tastey, service was one to one and the cocktails were great. not good for a romantic date as its quite loud. but great for fun nights out 😋😋😋😋"

  • "I have been to Roadhouse many times before and it never disappoints me. Good food as always, great ambiance and excelente service. I am unsure about what time was the cover band concert yesterday and it was the only thing I missed. The DJ music was very good though. Will def come back!"
    dined on 11/05/2014
  • "Great happy hour cocktail, busy on a friday night, main part of the main dish was good but the term 'salad' left alot to the imagination and such a tiny portion of coleslaw, overall though the service was quick and friendly, no complaints, as sometimes it can be very slow and rude."
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "Good food and ambiance, cant get better value than with top table 50% offer, great night as usual"
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "This is a place to enjoy the rockin' atmosphere and great mojitoes - not so much the food, which is a side attraction only. Not fabulous quality (steaks were really chewy) and glacially slow service... On the plus side, the music is what you come for - brilliant live acts and great tunes all night. A full dance floor and a bouncing atmosphere outweighed the shortcoming on the food side of the business."
    dined on 08/05/2014
  • "Found The Roadhouse on the internet. Booked it it as it said live music every night and as my husband is a gigging musician thought he would enjoy the band. Unfortunately I thought the band was going to be on at 8.30 instead they weren't due to start until 10.30 (being in the business my husband thought 8.30 too early for a band) As I had an early meeting to attend the next morning we were unable to stay for the music. The food was excellent and wonderful value as we had the 50% off all food together with 2 for 1 cocktails for me and beer for my husband which was good going for Covent Garden! Would definately go there again when we vist London next time and we would make sure we wouldn't have to leave before music started!"
    dined on 08/05/2014
  • "This was my second visit to the Roadhouse using the 50% off food offer. When we went it was also happy hour on drinks so there were more savings to be had. Roadhouse is an American dinner come nightclub venue. We had dinner early at 630pm so we only had the American dinner experience not the night club. However it should be pointed out the music is quite loud so is not a venue you would go to for a quiet night out. That said I did know that before I visited so it was not an issue. The service was friendly and efficient. The food portions are huge. I am sure I will be back again for another visit subject to the 50% off food being available again."
    dined on 08/05/2014
  • "We booked our table for three using the 50% off food offer via top table and was very pleased with the service and food. We went to the roadhouse pre theatre and requested a booth when booking as a lot of previous diners had mentioned they were better due to the privacy and they weren't wrong. The waitress that served us was very friendly and the service was really fast. The experience was made even better due to the happy hour on cocktails and beers :-) the portion sizes for both starters and mains were very generous and we will definitely return again. The only negative was that it really hard to find due to it being tucked away and that we are not local to the area. Great night out, thanks again roadhouse."

  • "we went here on a pre theatre meal on a monday evening. Was a little bit worried when we were stood up stairs at the entrance as it sounded like a night club downstairs, but once we got down there it was great and not too loud. We got there for 5.30 when it opened so it was a fairly quiet but it steadily filled up while we were there. fast service, great food and a fantastic atmosphere. If you are lucky you might also get to see the guys behind the bar doing their cocktail tricks. All staff we had contact with were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be going here again next time we are in London"
