I had been wanting to try Rye Roadhouse for a long time. Several of my friends are regulars and frequently rave about the food. I finally got around checking it out a few weeks ago and I can see what all the hype was about.
The restaurant is casual and has a fun vibe. When I asked about gluten-free options, I was presented with a full gluten-free menu. When I say full, I mean full. I had looked at the regular menu before receiving the gluten-free version, and the menus were almost comparable in size.
To start, I ordered the ‘Gator Nuggets, described as “blackened or fried, served with Cajun remoulade.” Now I’ll be honest, gator is not something I would have naturally been drawn to, but my friends who regularly eat at Rye Roadhouse told me I had to try it. I ordered the nuggets blackened, because per my friends, “when given an option, order everything blackened.” My friends were right, the ‘Gator Nuggets were delicious and a must have.
For my main course I ordered the Shrimp Skewer. The skewer had the option of being marinated and grilled or blackened. Following the advice of my friends, I again selected the blackened option. Most of the entrees are served with two sides of your choice so I selected the Baked Sweet Potato and Collard Greens. The shrimp skewers were cooked to perfection and the sides were so good! I especially loved the Collard Greens.
I really enjoyed my first visit to Rye Roadhouse, and completely understand what all the hype is about. I look forward to returning soon and trying additional menu items.
