We had a very good meal and the restaurant was very clean and inviting. Ron, the owner, was there on site and he was very good at walking around and interacting with the customer. It was quite impressive.

We decided at the last minute to stop at The Road Toad for lunch. The restaurant wasn't crowded when we got there and were seated immediately. We sat in the bar area so we could watch the Pitt basketball game. But the sun room looked wonderful as it was snowing and beautiful. The owner of the restaurant (I think) was... More

This place is warm, friendly and delicious. My wife and I truly enjoy visiting The Road Toad. The meals are delicious, and the atmosphere is cozy. You relax from the moment you enter the door. The menu is a mixture of comfort meals and signature dishes. There is never a bad meal served.

My sister and I stopped here for dinner after an afternoon of antiquing in Laurel Highlands. I picked The Road Toad based on Trip Advisor reviews, and I agree with most. We sat in the enclosed porch overlooking the lovely view of the stream in winter. Several little fireplaces kept the room comfy and welcoming. Service was friendly and attentive;... More

We went for our first dinner as a married couple. We were seated at a table beside the fireplace overlooking the creek. The service was great. The soup and salad was great, the main course was bland.

It's always a treat to visit The Road Toad! I really don't know of any business owner more welcoming than Ron McDowell. The ambiance is very cozy and the bar is outstanding! A large selection of terrific entrees pleases even the most choosy palate. I favor the pasta sampler or their huge salads ! And leave room for dessert! I... More

After a long day of kayaking, we stopped here for dinner. We were wet and under dressed yet were still treated wonderfully. The food was great and so were the desserts.

I have passed by this place for years, saying that "Someday" I wanted to check it out. Unfortunately, I'm usually going by on a weekday morning or early afternoon, and they aren't open for lunch except Fri - Sunday. Well, we were in the area Saturday afternoon, and stopped. WELL WORTH THE WAIT!! Quaint arrangement, we sat on the enclosed... More

My wife and I both enjoyed this pleasant little restaurant on Route 30 just outside Ligonier.Unfortunately, it was dark when we arrived so we could not enjoy the view. But the service (friendly, prompt, courteous and helpful) and the food were both very good. We ordered the Bruschetta as an appetizer, which was both distinctive in its prepartation and delicious:...

Being 40 miles from home on our way back from time away, we stopped for dinner on a Sunday evening. It was perfect. Dining options include an enclosed deck with view of the woods and creek; inner room/bar area was warm and inviting. (A separate dining room looks as if it would nicely accomodate a private party). Our server was... More
