The meal was disappointing. I was expecting more as the restaurant has been in business such a long time. The pork chops were very small and mashed potatoes tasted like instant.

Love the Roanoker Restaurant. Always reliable, good homestyle food. Love the chicken livers. Always get them for lunch and ask that they not be overcooked and that's the way they do it! Keeps me going back. Always pleasant service. Always a relaxed, familiar atmosphere. Always...More

Visited because the Roanoker was recommended, but my wife and I both left disappointed. I tried the Santa Fe Chicken. It was too heavy on thyme. Could not even finish it. My wife had the Captain's Seafood Platter. It was greasy, lacking flavor, and the...More

The Roanoker is a class act. An institution in the quaint city of Roanoke. Whenever I travel to Roanoke, and it’s infrequent, I usually eat breakfast or dinner at this well established eatery. The menu is always interesting and southern. Where else can you get...More

Still a traditional local place for good Southern food. Slow service on this visit. Restaurant is not as personable as it once was. Some décor has been updated. Still very casual and oriented towards families, Loki business lunches, and older couples.
