We were very disappointed in the food. It was served on cold plates and was barely warm. The portions were very small in relation to the high prices. The service was good. We will never go there again. Hate to spend so much money and leave hungry.

If you are looking for okay mexican food go here otherwise go somewhere else because it is not great. Upon entering it is very cramped. If you have a party of six good luck, they will stick you around a table made for four comfortably right next to the waitress station. Don't bother asking to put two tables together because they don't do that. The nachos were lousy even though my wife did not want the green peppers or onions they still could have put some cheese on them! Just a light scattering of cheese, they need to put a little bit more pride into their product they are putting out. Finally one thing I did noticed was the fact that for the most part it would appear from bartender, waitresses and host that they are barely over the age of 21 and it shows in service. Never will I step foot in there again.

Every year, our family patrons the Road House, and every time we have went, it has been very pleasurable. The service has always been accomodating and the staff is always giving their best! As a server, I know how fast-paced and stressful working with the public can be. So I say to those who think they can go to a very popular, authentic Mexican restaurant and believe they are the only ones standing in the room, try to do your part by being kind and patient with those who are ready to prepare your food, and take care of all your needs for the next two hours...besides aren''t you on vacation anyway? Relax! Although the restaurant does get pretty busy, I believe they do take reservations, by the way...if you need a table for 20...McDonaldd's is just down the road. Kudos to The Road House...keep doing such a great job, and our family will see you soon!

P.S. to the review below: the Roadhouse does not take reservations, but its managers do make promises which they refuse to honor upon arrival. And given the grammar in "Beth R's" rude comments, it makes sense that her family would be intimately acquainted with local fast food service. I reiterate the fact that the food here is decent, the drinks are weak and the service is mixed at best.

Roadhouse has the worst service I've ever experienced in Benzie County. We were frequent (summer) customers of this restaurant until we brought a group there two nights before our wedding. We had begged them to save tables for us -- which they had promised to do -- but when we arrived there were no large tables or groups of tables. Instead they had small parties sitting at the large tables (in back) and we had to split into groups of 2 and 4. We were eventually served weak drinks by the rude waitresses, hostess and bartender. It took them 2 1/2 hours to serve us food, and in the interim the bartender (discretionarily) decided to stop serving drinks despite the fact that people were still waiting for meals. It made those of us who grew up going to the Roadhouse very sad because the food is generally good and we'll miss it -- but the joke would be on us if we ever put ourselves through that astoundingly poor hospitality again. It was a bummer of a way to kick off a wedding weekend.

The Road House has authentic Mexican food that you won't find in many establishments. The tamale's are wonderful as are the different salsas. You'll get a great value for the price with plenty of food on your plate. When you are "up-north" and aren't looking for another drive through fast food dinner, this is a great casual place that serves "really" good food. It can get quite crowded which only serves as a testament to the fine meal that you'll enjoy.

Best mixed drinks in Benzie. Cool atmosphere. Way too busy in the summer. Weird hours the rest of the year. Most of the food is good, and it beats the rest of the weird restaurants around here.
