Very generous portions - more than most people could eat. Food is good for the price. Not gourmet. Excellent service -- friendly owner and staff.

The Road Toad is a little gem! It is located right along RTE 30 near Ligonier and looks like it would be just a roadside drinking establishment. You go through the doors and it's wonderful! Rustic and family friendly. We always ask for a table in the back room so we can have a view looking toward the creek! Food... More

I have dined at The Road Toad for years and it has been a consistently pleasant experience. Although there is a bar when you first walk into the restaurant, you can opt to eat out in the sun porch type area with a view of the river or on a nice day you can even eat outside in the back... More

Had dinner here with 3 other ladies - was happy to hear they had homemade Sangria for a special - always refreshing in the summer. Three of us had the Grilled Romaine Salad Wedge and an order of Mussels for our dinner - perfect choice! Service was very friendly.

Great food with some unusual selections. Chicken with lump crab/lobster sauce was delicious, as well as, the scallops with spinach. The atmosphere in the back dining room is wonderful. While we were there, we watched a fisherman and a man kayaking around the numerous rocks in the creek. Very unusual entertainment. We try to make a trip here at least... More

The Road Toad has a warm atmosphere with the friendliest staff. The owner, Ron McDowell, will introduce himself and make sure your experience at the Road Toad was a good one.

The place is very nice looking, great view, and good service. The food was just OK and highly priced. I wouldn't say "over priced" because it seems most places in this area are more highly priced than I would expect.
