The Rye Roadhouse

            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.
