We've been here twice and both times, we came away very happy. It's a pretty large place with a lot of different rooms to be seated in. It's a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed our waiter, "the comedian", who really is a comedian who's opened for some big acts back in his day. When you go, ask for the comedian (Ralph... More

This is great dinner food or brunch. It is upscale and priced on the high side, but well worth the money. If you want a fine dinner out, this is the place in Hyannis!

We got a good service, the food was good, the prices reasonnable for this kind of place (if my daughter had not chosen the Filet Mignon steak that would have helped even more). Valet Parking mandatory, (parking was empty... so) a bit annoying but I guess at peak time it can be appreciated.

Not sure how some people would even think this place was good. Our waiter, I think we were supposed to have one, was never in sight. Always had to have someone get him. Took him over a half hour to get a glass of wine and we were sitting not even 30 feet from the bar! Food, well I don't... More

Well first of all we waited an hour for our dinner. My meal looks like I could go to Stop and Shop and make it myself. I got a salad.

Our menu offers everything from native seafood dishes, such as cioppino and blackened swordfish, to Italian specialties and pasta dishes, and a variety of choice steaks. If you're looking for a lighter bite, look no further than our Bistro where we offer salads, sandwiches and thin-crust gourmet pizzas in addition to our full dinner menu. A carefully culled wine list, 20 of which are available by the glass, and nearly 30 beer selections round it all out. House-made desserts, espresso and cappuccino are the perfect ending to a perfect evening at the Roadhouse Cafe. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a private party of 150, let the Roadhouse Cafe make your evening a memorable one.
