    This place is fine for drinks and a night out but if you are a coeliac and have been informed via email that there are suitable options, really there isn't. Your options are a plain steak or salmon with a salad as we were informed that all sauces and sides contained gluten- including the mashed potato! Waitress was rude although I appreciate it wasn't her fault and all in all an epic fail, won't be returning.

    We went late on a Saturday afternoon. Actually not that hungry must have been annoying for the restaurant but so we had it booked we felt obliged to go when we did and not worry about food later.. The burger was really juicy flavoursome and cooked very well.. Poor presentation on plates if you paid full price compared to some burger places I've visited, but can complain at food. hubbies ok, but jar sauces not fresh..if you paid full price, it would be a rip off.. bit too noisy and nightclubby-for us. Would appeal to the younger set!! A mix up with food order and bill but they were sorted ASAP with no fuss and apologies..great customer service ..would we go again? Probably not but that's because it just wasn't our sort of place that's all..

    The service was amazing, and it was such good value we went to happy hour so the cocktails were two for £5.50 and we had a deal for 50% off food. The staff were lovely and so was the atmosphere. I would highly recommend going to Roadhouse for either for big groups or you and one other!

    First impressions were good... Very American decor and good music. But... The waitress was very awkward and weird. They sat us clearly in the cheap seats where the rest if opentablers were. The menu is really limited. It was one of the worse burgers I've ever had!

    The service was 10/10 went on a Wednesday at 6pm and the place had a gd amount of people, seated straight away and started with their 241 cocktails at great value and were delicious especially the Hollywood cocktail. Food great and there was a cm that was ok. The place staying open till 3am was a plus as it was my birthday and we had a great day. There was 3 of us using the 241 deal and the 50% off food we got 2course meal and 14 cocktails all together for £80. Great value!!!!

    Had an excellent meal at the Roadhouse early Saturday evening. Got there at six so took advantage of the happy hour. Menu was surprisingly good in choice. Could have ordered a number of things. The service from the waitresses was spot on and cheerful and the quality of the food excellent. And the Open Table offer made the bill pleasant reading. Will certainly go back again sometime.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Dined on 8/7/2014
    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.
