Diner Reviews
  • "I and my friend booked a table for 8.30 pm . We were 20 min late, so when the food arrived it was already 9.20. At the very beginning out waitress told us that we should vacate the table by 10 o'clock. So we had only 40 min to have our dinner and drinks. Our waitress wasn't particularly friendly or welcoming. She behaved like she couldn't wait us to disappear from her sight and kept hovering over us, which made us to feel tense and uncomfortable. We didn't hear a single kind word from her, she even didn't thank us for a tip, which she actually didn't deserve! We couldn't relax and enjoy our meal. I wouldn't recommend the place for a late evening meal, and we won't go back there."

  • "Me & three guests dined at Roadhouse taking full advantage of the 50% off food discount in the restaurant. We had 5 sharing starters and a main each. There was ample amounts of food, lots of meat and it was delicious! The drinks happy hour is also great at only £10 for a bottle of house wine and £5.30 for a large cocktail glass we stocked up and filled our table. After dinner we decided to stay for one at Roadhouse and we weren't disappointed! We had 3 fish bowl cocktails & 2 bottles of wine. The atmosphere was electric we staying all night and absolutely loved the live band who played two sets and had the whole bar buzzing. After staying at Roadhouse for 7 hours the lovely manager Victoria even tried to help us with a taxi home. Brilliant!"

  • "Booked table online as don't live in London and was staying for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. Got a booth table which I asked for, went to roadhouse early to take advantage of cocktail happy hour, cocktails were fab but the food and table service not so much. I ordered a starter which was late coming out and almost overlapped with the arrival of my main course so no time for my starter to go down, chicken fajitas were ok but way too much veg and not enough chicken, my other half was happy with his ribs however. Would recommend the roadhouse for cocktail and a lively bar atmosphere but not food."

  • "Nice atmosphere with all the lighting and diner style seats. Service was good, not overbearing but speedy and friendly. Food was your usual American fare, good but not exceptional however the portions were massive (so big we ended taking some home with us). With the top table deal the value for money is unbeatable for central London, 2 courses for 3 people with 4 cocktails came £50....bargain. Would come again."

  • "I met my sisters for dinner and drinks at Roadhouse and it was as good as always. We each had cocktails - 2 for 1 during happy hour - and a mail course each and all were very good. I've had dessert here before and it's always good but didn't this time. With the 50% off food offer and happy hour it's a bargain and the food is always good!"

  • "Took Mrs and two ravenous teenage boys and had a cracking evening! The cocktails were very good with the cocktail waiter showing off his juggling skills with a plop! Food was good, not fancy , although the BBQ chicken wings were drowning in BBQ sauce. My steak was top drawer. All served up by a very helpful and attractive waitress. The choice of red wines was limited (there were 2!) but who goes to the Roadhouse to drink anything but cocktails?!"

  • "Bad service but good atmoshphere - waitress was not that friendly which ruined the mood a bit"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "All staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. We booked the 50% off deal thtough top table and were also in time for happy hour. Food was delicious.Cocktails were on 2-4-1 and unfortunately/fortunately both cocktails have to be the same. As myself and my husband have differing tastes we had to have our cocktails 2 by 2. This probably contributed greatly to the generous tip we left! We had starters 2mains and 12 Cocktails between us and the bill was just £53. Amazing for Covent garden. All in all a fantastic dinning experience perfect for couples or groups looking to eat drink and be merry without children running about."

  • "This was the first time going to the Roadhouse. Booked a table Friday night and got 50% off deal. The service was ok although it took a very long time for our food to be ready. The food was ok, nothing very special. I had a burger. I'd might go again if I got a similar deal."

  • "Took advantage of the Toptable 50% off food offer and booked Roadhouse for a pre theatre meal. As it was early evening we were also able to take advantage of the 5.30 - 7.30 Happy hour prices and on a Saturday too!. We asked for one of the booth tables. The staff were friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. We both enjoyed the BBQ rack of ribs as well as mixed appetisers to share. The whole lot came to just under £40 including a bottle of house wine , a cocktail and beer. Amazing value for Central London and perfect for a pre theatre meal. The venue has a great atmosphere with lots of retro American memorablia and live music later in the evening."

  • "Great Food, Great Service, will definitely be booking again."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "We almost missed the entrance, but the minute we walked into the main dining area it felt like we were in a real US diner. The service was great - friendly, attentive, helpful, and fun people - and the food was pretty authentic. Portions not quite as monstrous as in the US, but a big plateful all the same, so really satisfying - and they are happy to pack what you don't eat."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "We'd already been to Roadhouse once before, and went back for a pre theatre meal. We were late because of trains, and the waitress did everything she could to accelerate the order. Food was delicious and plentiful and for 2 mains and 4 drinks, including 2 cocktails, we paid £30, excellent value."

  • "The food was ok, the cocktails were good and the service was great."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Been to the roadhouse regularly pre theatre and the 50% deal is excellent value for money along with the 2 for 1 drinks will have to steer clear of the 66 melt as it is getting to much to eat for sitting watching a show, as ever the service was very good we will be going again."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "I got the 50% discount booking and it got me a really good american type meal at a great price. The place has a nice decor, but is pretty noisy (loud music)."
    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "Reservation @ 1800 hours for 3. When we arrived there wasn't anyone to greet us to show us to our table. We told the bartender that we had a reservation and was informed to tell a waitress! A waitress approached us and took us to our table. I had booked through Top Table and selected the 50% off of food, we were informed that we would need to order 2 courses to qualify for 50% off food. The cocktails looked amazing but a little weak, having said that it was Happy Hour so couldn't grumble. The waitress was very attentive and very cheerful and friendly. At 1930 we were given the bill, wouldve been nice to have an extra 15-30 mins to let our meals go down. We had 3 x starters, 3 x main courses & 12 x cocktails and the bill was only £60!!!"
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "We used the 50% off food TopTable deal for this place and it was SO worth it! The service was brilliant, although we did have to ask for the bill 4 times, they were polite and really seemed to care about our meal which was refreshing. The cocktails were 241 which was great value but also delicious! We had chicken wings and quesedillas to start and these were also delicious. Then I had the steak fajitas for my main and my boyfriend had the ribs. I honestly thought these were the best fajitas I had experienced whilst eating out and my boyfriend seemed impressed with the amount of meat on his ribs too! We will definitely be going back here again!"
    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "We had dinner in Roadhouse after matinee so arrived when it was almost empty on Saturday night. the cocktails and food were great and very good value in Covent Garden. We had to leave the table after 2 hours which is understandeable especially on Saturday. The music and tho whole place got really loud around 8pm so we were actually glad to leave."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "Booked the special of two courses and a cocktail for £18 but was only told after we'd finished eating our main courses we'd been given the wrong menu and had to pay the normal menu prices. The waitress called the manager who offered to resolve the issue, yet the service didn't improve when it came to ordering dessert and getting the bill. Thankfully the service charge was removed but a birthday celebration was ruined by this experience. Won't return anytime soon - and watch out for the strict 90min turnaround on tables."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "I normally would recommend this place but prices have gone up and the quality of food has gone down. My starter came practically frozen and my £18 steak was poor. A lot of people around us were waiting for food a long time. I'm really disappointed because this place used to be my favourite place."
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "This is the second time we have been here, this was after a show . We was with our daughter and our granddaughter who had never been before. Their initial comments were Wow!" how did you find this place". The atmosphere was electric The food was great, well presented, with Toptable 50% off, and the cocktails and drinks were also great, especially during the "happy hour" 2 for one. Highly recommended for a venue with a great atmosphere. Our age group was 2 x 75, one 44 year old and a 20 year old, from Herne Bay, Kent"
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "We went for a birthday out to the Roadhouse. There's no meet and greet person so we had no idea how to find our table. We were early so had a drink at the bar. It took ages to get served as the place was busy. Eventually we got drinks and then looked for someone to direct us to our table. Once seated the service was good. The food was not so good though and I returned my chicken as it was dry. It was replaced with slightly less dry chicken. The place is noisy, which was ok, but it wouldn't suit people who want to talk. When they cleared tables to make more standing room near the fixed tables the security were heavy handed in making sure the waitresses had access to the tables. This caused arguments and this could have been organised better."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Took a date and although she enjoyed it I have to say the food wasn't date standard. But the atmosphere was good and a live band were just starting up so if I was out with a group it would've been amazing."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "I booked a booth for 4 people for a Saturday evening and we enjoyed the 50% offer. The food and cocktails were great, made better only by the 50% off! My friends absolutely loved the atmosphere and the waitress was exceptional."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "great night and excellent value with offer as usual"
    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "You get what you pay for at Roadhouse. Decent American food and cocktails at knockout prices with the 50%/happy hour deal. Just don't expect a quiet evening!"
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "50% off the bill, and the happy hour, meant that 3 of us had 2 cocktails and a hefty main dish each which was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! All for £15 each, including a very decent tip! Although thinking back, we probably shouldn't have been so generous with the tip, that's when the discount on the booze does them a favour. The waitress was French, short dark haired girl. She was very rude and failed to crack a smile all night. It was also very difficult to get her attention. Other than that, absolutely cracking place for a good fun munch. I just wish the Rockaoke started earlier than 10.30pm. We had ribs, and chicken fajitas, and it was all completely delicious! Very good sized portions, and all very fresh. That is all"
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "there were 4 of us all of our meals were delicious and we had starters mains and desserts.To make the meal more enjoyable it was happy hour so the wine was only £10 per bottle and cocktails were two for one."
    dined on 28/01/2014
  • "Went on a Friday evening at 8pm, understanding that it was peak time staff were busy. The starters took a disappointing 35-40 minutes to arrive where we had to twice ask and remind the waitress if our order is being made/ coming - and no apology was provided. The mains tasted good but nothing special. At the end of our meal because of the long waiting times we were rushed to leave our table."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "As always with 50% off the food and 2-4-1 on cocktails great value for money"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "We ate at the roadhouse and the food was fine, for the money. But the food service was quite bad the girl practically ignored us as we we're trying to get her attention for 10 minutes! The cocktails were rubbish defo not worth the money so stick to beer! But the atmosphere of the bar was brilliant!! Great crowd and the live band was awesome. Booze isn't badly priced, great for a laugh I'd definaty recommend this bar to a friend. Just a shame the food service and cocktails let it down."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "With my mother visiting London, we had booked tickets to the theatre and needed somewhere to eat. After weighing up a number of options we decided on The Roadhouse as the food and drinks sounded great and was more than reasonably priced. When we go there it was as good as it sounded and a whole lot more - incredibly friendly staff, great food, great drinks, great restaurant! Can't recommend enough. We look forward to returning soon ad organising to visit with work colleagues."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Came to Roadhouse for an anniversary dinner. Food was slightly overpriced for the quality in our opinion, especially wjen paying for 3 courses for 2 people. For example, my burger was quite dry and a little overcooked - even the bun was over toasted. Other than that it was great - fantastic New York Strip Steak! The 241 happy hour at the bar on Tues was the highlight of the evening when you could get 2 cocktaila for just £5.30! It's the main reason we come to Roadhouse, especially as the cocktails taste great!"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "Food was nice, my chouce was not so good as the sauce on my chicken was cold which wasn't ver ynice but 50% so can't complain. Noramlly the food is much nicer, will stick to what I normally have in future"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "The venue is very lively and a great atmosphere but the service and food very poor. Good night out for party people but expect badly prepared cold food (snack quality only)"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Had a great time up to the moment where we were asked to pay the bill as the table was needed.. I would not mind but we were only 1hr10mins into our 1hr30mins booking. I will not be returning as it was extreamly rude as soon as we said we did not want deserts the lady told us we have to have the bill!!! Never experanced this in my life.. Myself and 3 others will not be returning. Big shame really could be a great place if it was not for poor service."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Fantastic food, great value for money and a great atmosphere. Staff were also very helpful. First time visit and definitely won't be our last."
