“Average bar food”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it didn't quite live up to their over the top recommendation. Several of our party had sandwiches were were good. However, I ordered a steak which I found to be less than average. It was quite thin and tasted as though it had been defrosted shortly before it was cooked.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

Roes is very over priced for what they offer. Also the food is mediocre at best. I have been there on several occasions and each time I am less impressed. It is nice that there is an outdoor patio for dining that accommodates those of use who smoke. Thumbs up for that!

“Yuck.”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

I went here one evening for dinner. I ordered the lemon pepper tilapia. I received a thin, overcooked fillet that tasted like neither lemon nor pepper. I stabbed the accompanying sphere of mashed potatoes with my fork and was able to lift the entire thing and wave it around. The coleslaw was warmish and soupy. So gross. I won't be back.
