Road Trip to the Montsweag Roadhouse

We feel like truants! On Monday we went out for lunch without the phone! Had a little downtime with some friends who we met up with at the Montsweag Roadhouse.

Now I have driven past this place for years and never stopped in. Hate to say it but I could never tell from the outside what might be on the inside. What a waste! All those years I missed out on the great menu, the fun ambience and friendly people.

The menu is long and eclectic. It was a tough choice but I finally picked the Strawberry Salad with Fried Goat Cheese and Sugared Almonds. I added salmon to the top. Yum-o! Rock had the Roadhouse Burger with sweet potato fries. Our friends had the Portobello Mushroom Sandwich and the Montsweag Steak Sandwich with, hold onto your hats, tater tots! Yes, one of the sides at the Roadhouse is tater tots. C'mon you remember tater tots, don't you?!

Next time I'm getting the fried calamari. I am making it one of my life's goals to try fried calamari wherever it is served. I'm looking for the perfect recipe!

So, if you are on Route 1 headed north from us, or on Route 1 headed south toward us, be sure to stop in and give this roadhouse a try!

Open year round, serving lunch & dinner, with music Friday & Saturday nights.
