Eddie's love of good food is matched by his love of fine beers. Add to the mix a wonderful staff and a great crowd and you have the makings of a perfect afternoon/evening. The place is admittedly small(-ish), but that only adds to the ambiance. There is never a disappointing item on the menu or the tap. I also welcome his decision not to have any TVs in the place; this ensures people interact rather than become hypnotized. All in all, this is my favorite hangout, bar none.

My wife and I stopped in for a few beers in the late afternoon on a Saturday, the place was quiet but started to fill up as dinnertime grew near. There is a long comfortable bar and great big windows that open to the main street. I don't recall there being televisions, this definitely did not have a sports-bar vibe.
We were very excited about the selection of craft brews on draft for this neck of the woods. They have eight taps, seven of which roate regularly (the only permanent is Chimay triple). There was a good spectrum of offerings, from NY (Blue Point, Ithaca, Captain Lawrence), west coast (Green Flash IPA, Left Hand Milk Stout) and other mainstream regional craft selections (Dogfish Head 90 Minute, Long Trail Coffee Stout). Unfortunately there were limited bottle selections (there is no published list, though there were some random gems in the cooler, some stuff from Victory and Southampton).
We sat at the bar and the service was excellent. The bartenders were very friendly without being invasive, they offered samples of any beers we wanted to dry and made sure our waters were kept filled. We didn't get the sense that the bartenders were exactly beer geeks but they knew the current offerings and service was generally made in proper glassware. Certainly no pretense here.
We were informed that they regularly hold beer dinners and so far have had at least Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head in.
We got the wings which were great, big serving size and very meaty. The menu looked to be a bit limited, pretty straighforward American pub and comfort food, hopefully we will dine here at some point.

It's easy to find a great craft beer here, because that's all they serve. Constantly changing the taps makes my visit better and better every time. Dogfish Head 90 Minute and Chimay are constantly pouring...it's about as dependable as your chances of finding tasteless watered down beer at most other places. One of the many delicious Rogue brews is typically flowing as well. I've had Chateau Dirtoir, Double Dead Guy, Shakespeare Stout, John John Dead Guy, and the sessionable Dead Guy of course.
Last night I attended the Dogfish Head beer dinner at The Roadhouse, which prompted this review. A phenomenal selection of six "occasional brews" including Sah'tea (first in the country to have it on draft according to DFH), Chateau Jiahu, Black & Blue, Hellhound, & Shelter Pale Ale, paired with one of the finest meals I have had in years. I learned all of the salad dressings and sauces were home made by Eddie and his signature Flat Iron Steak with chimmichurri & creamy gorgonzola dipping sauces was the best steak I have ever had.

This place has an excellent selection of craft beers on tap and in bottles. Of the six taps, one usually has a Dogfish Head, last time I was in they had a two year aged World Wide Stout, Another is a Rogue, and the other four could have a range of products. The owners are very knowlegable of the beers on tap. While sampling the fine selctions, I have had long conversations about beer, with them. The food is always excellent quality and a well thought out menu. I had the wings one night and asked for the hottest and the were extremely hot... So be careful! The steaks are fine quality and very tasty.
