Elaine's is an amazing dining experience. The food is locally sourced and everything is prepared from scratch in house. The fresh baked bread, sour dough and garlic focaccia, and home made butter are divine! The menu is seasonal and changes frequently based on what's fresh and in season. The soft shells available early summer(now) are not to be missed. The seafood dishes are yummy! The wine list is diverse and approachable, always earning the coveted Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. The chef, Bret Jennings, has been described as a "culinary genius" and prepares everything personally, including sumptuous deserts. The warm chocolate cake with pistachio ice cream is Delicious! The wait staff and service are attentive and informative. Overall, Elaine's exceeds all culinary expectations! I will be returning frequently!
I love it
Great place to take friends, sit outdoors at big tables, have a beer, and eat great food from a small but very tasty menu.
I usually don't take the time to post reviews, good or bad, but this place needs to be shared! I can't think of a better place I'd like to go for lunch, dinner or just about any kind of entertainment. This place has it all. It seems this place is very clean, very well managed, thought out, with a specific goal in mind. Not just providing more than exceptional food, but providing an experience. The wait staff was pleasant, efficient, and on top of everything (even with what looked to be a full house) My wife enjoyed the Gouda Mac n Cheese, I had the Blackened Chicken Alfredo, my daughter polished off a plate of angel hair pasta (she says its the sauce that makes it), and my son loved his hand battered chicken tenders. Portions are very generous and priced just right. It would be safe to say that the PBO Roadhouse isn't the cheapest place in town, but is by no means expensive. We paid exactly what I would expect to pay for what we got. This place has got it all, after looking at the entertainment lineup there, we realized this place is the place to be. Whether you like live music, (any genre, big band orchestra to AC/DC cover bands!), live theater performance, or even comedy shows, this place has it all. We will definitely be making this our regular weekly dining destination. Very much looking forward to a night out there without the kids too! Did I mention they have a HUGE dance floor and a nice bar? If you haven't been there, you need to go.....tonight, tomorrow, (heck, go tonight and tomorrow!) ,or just as soon as you can get there! You're missing out!
best steak sub this side of Philly
Food was pretty good. Service was the worst. Salad came after main dinner. Ask for bread 3 times . Never got it . Will not go back again!!
Best restaurant in Pittsboro!
The music schedule at Roberts is different for this month. Jim Crisp only played this past Wednesday and will unfortunatly not be playing the rest of the month due to a holiday party, basketball, and then christmas all falling on Wednesdays. Brevan Hampden & Friends have not played here for some time. On Friday the 13th and 20th we will feature JT Parrothead (Acoustic Guitar and Singing) and on Saturday the 14th we will feature Alex Thompson (Solo Piano)
Best patio to eat and drink! Love the "How do you Q?" drink and The Uberwisconsin - grilled cheese!
Delicious food, attentive service and charming decor. I recommend the salads as entrees, wine & bread with olive oil. The country store has lots of artistic merchandise. We had a fun time.
My husband and I ate at the Roadhouse recently and the meal was tasty and the service was superb!! While there were the usual hiccups on opening day, they have worked out all the bugs and our dining experience was most pleasant. This restaurant is NOTHING like the old General Store Cafe; not only in decor but in particular with the food and service. They have continued not only the music nights but have continued to be involved with benefit events and recently sponsored a "Meet and greet" buffet where folks could come and meet our elected officials. They are offering 10% off your meal from now until election day if you wear your "I voted today" sticker. We love it that Greg Lewis also supports local farmers to supply some of the food used in their menus. You rock Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store!!!
My wife and I have been to Piedmont several times since it opened, so I suppose our experiences have covered the history of the place. While we have never had a bad meal there, the service has always been the weak spot. Last night was the first time with the new chef. She had the clams with mint fettucini and I had the sausage penne. Both entrees were the best we have ever had at Piedmont. Dessert was retired beer malt ice cream over chocolate cake and a sourdough chocolate cake. Both were amazing. The only things keeping me from posting 5 stars are having to pay for the bread before the meal and a forgotten dessert spoon!
Great veg bar menu. This is one of the only places in the area that has a solid vegetarian selection and doesn't charge through the nose. Solid, clean food. Head there for lunch and get the 2 veg chili dogs + fries. You can't beat the price. This bar is exactly what it should be - now go support them!
Great music but don't forget about the FOOD. When you get your full-rack babybacks and those divine french fries served on a large tray, you're in heaven! Impeccable staff. Great atmosphere. Families, old hipsters, academic types, bikers, it's all there. Finish off your ribs with a shooter of the best bread pudding on this planet. And how can you lose when you're located next to a tattoo parlor?
This place is exactly as advertised....the Social Crossroads of Chapel HIll. Food's good - they just won the Shrimp and Grit Throwdown in Chapel Hill - service is friendly and I when I was there last there was a wedding going on downstairs, their Back Bar was packed and we still got great service in the upstairs restaurant.
One of our favorite go places on a monthly basis, Great food and large choice of Beer
Cool spot. Love the food.
Stopped by Piedmont early on a Saturday night with a friend expecting a host of local cuisine served with local ingredients. What we got was slow to non-existent service, small portions and overcooked entrees. My pork dish was dry and fatty served over cold beans. My friends chicken looked more like a quail; it was that tiny. Dinner for two with one split salad and three cocktails; $90.00 plus tip. I will not return to Piedmont.
Great .....if you want lots of cigarette smoke in a non-smoking area. Not so good if you want appetizing food. Their quality has certainly fallen since I was there last year.
