Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place looked fun. It was dirty, service was ok, kitchen was slow. Dale's hamburger came out raw. The server tried to argue that they cooked everything medium - until we showed them the raw meat. The fries were overcooked. I only ate half burger....Neat decor.More

Yesterday, on Saturday night, we dropped in for the very first time. We moved to the peninsula a year ago and had dear friends come to visit. All of us only ate half of our food. It was that bad. The hot turkey sandwich was...rolled up, turkey deli meat. The calamari appetizers not to our table 20 minutes after we started eating our meal, we left 3/4 on each plate. Don’t go here on a weekend if you want to talk to anybody at your table. You have to wait to talk between songs. The decibel factor on my phone app had them at 141 dB that should require hearing protection. The only bright spot was our server, Miranda . She did absolutely fantastic, making sure my ice tea was always full. This was our first visit, and absolutely for sure our last.More

The drunk owners of this establishment go around to other businesses in the small area harassing and threatening staff when they get cut off. Meanwhile the food is terrible and the drinks are way overpriced.

Great gem of a restaurant now managed by a new owner (after COVID closures started. The menu is currently limited but will be increasing again as regulations allow that. Their clam chowder is outstanding and made by an employee with years of experience who has...produced this award winning soup. I had an excellent shrimp cocktail with a great cocktail sauce with a kick. The owner is vivacious and charming and made us out-of-towners feel like family. Well worth a stop and we will definitely be back. Music on weekends by a variety of local bands. Made our day trip to the coast that much better.More

New owners have turned this beer and burger place into a great spot to get local food and great service that you don't expect to find in such a small town. The crab Louie is absolutely the best we've had north of San Francisco -...lots of local Dungeness crab and very little lettuce - just amazing. Clam chowder with lots of clam meat and smoky bacon, a classic that tops any other place we have been in recent years. This restaurant is worth a detour, even if your destination is New York!More

This restaurant has had new owners for 9 weeks and what a gem. If you want to eat the essence of Pacific Northwest seafood,this is the place Every restaurant on the coast says it has the best clam chowder..this place succeeds. The chowder is full...of meaty oysters with a nice smokey taste. The crab Louie is extremely generous and extremely tasty. One of the new owners took care of us on our 2 visits and she is a true delight. If you are near Astoria, this is the place.More

Visiting our daughter for a few days, and she took us to the CR Roadhouse. Tables are sanitized, and separated throughout the dining area. We were seated and our waitress quickly took our order for drinks and gave us a minute to review the menu....One of the specials was halibut fish and chips, with coleslaw. Our daughter ordered a margarita, which was so good! My husband got a bloody mary which he said was pretty good also. We decided on the halibut fish and chips, even though it was a little more than I expected. It was really good! The coleslaw was just the way I like it...not too sweet, not to much vinegar. Our waitress was friendly, and attentive. Thank you.More

Signage says new owner and menu. We hadn't been there before so decided to try it. I eat mostly vegetarian and found little of interest. There's a black bean burger and salads. I don't like black bean burgers so I had a side salad and...a scoop of mashed potatoes. That was $12. My husband had a double bacon cheeseburger and fries. He enjoyed it, but it was $18. We both felt the meal was a bit pricey. Also, our waitress never did come by to check on us or refill our water. We most likely will not go back.More

We stopped for lunch one day while driving through. Best clam chowder I have ever eaten!! We grew up in this area and come back frequently to visit, so have eaten our share of chowder. This is unique and wonderful!! I also had the prawns,...which were very good. My husband had all you can eat ribs. He said each bite of ribs just melted away before he could even chew it! Very flavorful and very tender. We will be back!!More

We ordered the clams to share, my first taste seemed something wasn’t right, then find atleast 6 unopened clams in the bowl, we that was enough for me, our waitress just wanted us to pay and go, the second waitress seemed like she would do...something about it, nope not help, we have eaten here many times, and just hope it was an off night. But still think we should have paid for those clams!More

My friend and I stopped for a late dinner. She ordered steak and I had salmon with fried okra. Truly that was the best salmon I have ever eaten! The Roadhouse is a combination restaurant and sports bar. The waitress was an expert at keeping...my coffee cup full and other customers' glasses/cups filled too.More
