This restaurant is located on the main drag in Benzonia. Parking can be difficult as it's on the main road but we always find a place not too far away. There is indoor seating and outdoor in the summer. I love the old building vintage interior and I love their outdoor space - it's surrounded by plants so it feels... More

You can't go wrong with The Roadhouse. Been eating here for several years and it never disappoints. Their salsa is the best - you can buy it in the local grocery stores too.

I live right around the block from there.We've had several meals there but finally stopped going. The food was very bad. I think they are trying to copy Tex-mex dinners. They did a bad job. Way to much seasoning. I grew up in S. Texas and this food is no match. STAY AWAY

The Roadhouse is a nice shift from the usual fish and chips on a Friday night. Our group of eight called ahead for reservations at 5 which proved to be wise. The restaurant was packed by 6 but the staff did a great job handling all their hungry and thirsty guest. The food our group ordered was excellent and our... More

This is our go to for good Mexican fare. Indoor and outdoor seating...weather permitting. They get pretty busy in the summer so plan ahead. Outdoor area is very cool. Just all around good food with good service...what you would expect from a decent restaurant.

We have been to the Roadhouse several times and it never disappoints. Bart was our server today and he was outstanding. He selected me the steak and shrimp fajitas that is featured in the Grand Traverse Dining Guide. It was great. The Roadhouse has a very nice menu and a good bar with local craft beer. This is a busy... More

We come here every time we are at Crystal skiing. The service and atmosphere is better than most but the food is second to none.

Don't let the small town deceive you, they know what they're doing. Wonderful tasty Mexican dishes. Service is excellent, the food is better. We tried the the empanadas for an appetizer, a Chilean Pastry, absolutely delicious. We then ordered the Roadhouse skillet and the Wet Burrito Platter, both exceptional. Outdoor dining is available which includes an outdoor bar.(and preferred by... More
