“Food was awesome. Service not up to normal standards. I visited about 130p. Waitress was at the hostess stand. I told her I needed a table for 1. She said just a minute and went to find hostess. Hostess FINALLY came and seated me. Guess who the waitress was for my table? Same girl who had to find a hostess rather than just seat me. Bar service was slow. Food service was slow for a simple item…. Etouffee. Food was great!“

“My wife and I went on an early Saturday evening and had a wonderful date night at the Grillhouse. The food and service were both excellent and the atmosphere was quiet, even though there was a large crowd. We didn't wait too long for a table, and our servers were attentive and helpful. We had the Battered Chicken tenders with fries, and they were delicious, as well as the Burger and a baked potato for side and both were very good. The prices were also very reasonable and we were astonished to have that quality of food for value. An excellent place for a date night or a night with friends.“

It's a flavor explosion worth the wait if there is one.

“Jordan was our server recently and he’s very attentive, very knowledgeable, and very kind.Jordan recommended the chicken sandwich and said it’s his personal favorite.. I did not read the menu, a usual tactic upon my first visit to a restaurant. I WAS NOT prepared for that sandwiches presentation.. sliced in half face down in green chili sauce.. it was the most pleasant mess I’ve had in the form of a chicken sandwich in a long time!Y'all, the French fries were hot.. I’ve been served cold fries for so many years I’d absolutely forgot what hot French fries tasted like.. it was like the potato version of being born again.Let me not give a very firm nod to the crawfish queso and fried green tomatoes because they were both amazing and should not be overlooked.. the queso was served in a warm mini cast iron skillet and stayed dipable until we were finished.This is a great spot if you’re looking to impress your company.“

“For my money, Texas Roadhouse is the best of the mid-tier steakhouses. 5-8 years ago I'd have said saltgrass, but their prices have gone way up while their quality has gone way down. At Texas Roadhouse, my wife's prime rib came out perfectly medium rare and my sirloin was properly medium (my preferred temp). The baked potato is good right down to the salty delicious skin. The house salad is luxurious with egg, thick grated cheddar and tasty crumbly croutons.The only downside: allergy warning: the Roadhouse's shtick is free bags of unshelled peanuts whose detritus fills the air. Peanut allergy people beware anaphylaxis looms.“
