The team here is clearly trying very hard to get the dining service running in a reasonable manner, and i really appreciate everything they are doing. The food was good, the beer was cold, and the service was darned decent. Thank you to the staff at Texas Roadhouse. A big shout out to the team at Texas Roadhouse.

We love Texas Roadhouse. Have never had a bad meal and the service has always been great. We have eaten at Texas Roadhouses all over the United States. We eat at the Ames Roadhouse once a week. I love the rolls but sometimes they aren't as hot as I would like but that is understandable. Once they lost our order in the kitchen. After waiting awhile, the waitress discovered it and comped our meals. That was very nice. We had the entire afternoon so the wait didn't bother us at all. They have discounted gift certificates around Christmas time so we usually buy a few hundred $ worth to give to give for presents. .

It is too noisy to visit while eating at this restaurant. When I said something they did turn it down a bit but still plenty loud. The Country Fried Sirloin was pretty good but part was a bit tough. Vegetables done very well. The best part is the bread and butter. We will not go back because of the noisy atmosphere.

1 star as that is the lowest given. Host seats us with rolls no silverware. Waitress asks drinks and I ask her question about two steaks she has no idea. Salad comes on dirty bowl have to wait to find waitress. Restaurant was not packed. I explain and she brings a new one. I order my steak medium and my mom medium rare. Both come out and I said which is which I think this one and disappears. Mine is as rare as my mom’s so need again to find server to find my sever and I explain and she said I will have them make more medium. Didn’t apologize. Manager brings one out at least 10 minutes later doesn’t apologize and I told her about salad and said his is not what I expect at roadhouse. She stated she will talk to dishwashers to make sure dishes are clean. Never said what can I do to make it better just walked away. I then said to waitress your manager didn’t really care that my food was bad. Her response oh. Steaks were tough but they never came back to ask about the food. Save your money and skip this s restaurant.

My family and I had a wonderful experience at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant. The food and drinks were excellent. Our server was extremely attentive and polite. I recommend the Texas Roadhouse to anyone and/or family looking for great value.

Can we give 0 stars? Overall, it was a very bad experience that even the Manager on duty didn't fix it right. My husband and I regret not taking pictures for proof. The service was mediocre at best. We asked about the 2-person Valentine's Day Special that was good through today. She didn't know if they still had that special or what it was, and we stated we didn't know what it was because there was no description or pictures. All we saw was they had a Special from February 9-18 for $48.95 give/take. She said she'd speak with her manager to see if they still had it. She eventually returned with our drinks and asked if we were ready to order. We reminded her we inquired about the Special. She told us we would have to choose from 1 of the 2 items on the list. We again stated we didn't see a list, so we did not know what the Special was. She appeared flustered and again said she'd have to go talk to her manager. She finally returned an official menu insert. Finally, we got to place our orders! My husband's steak was just okay. The side of chili was barely warm and didn't taste right, very blah. (Yes, we've both eaten at other locations in the past, so this shouldn't be extremely different than other franchise locations.) I ordered a 6 oz New York Strip to be cooked medium with sautéed onions and mushrooms. Sides of loaded steak fries and loaded mashed potatoes. The first thing I noticed was a large portion of the mushrooms were far beyond sautéed. They were as black as a black olive; no way was I going to eat those! The cheese on the fries had obviously been sitting under a lamp for 5-10 minutes before being served. It was hard and crusty looking - not appetizing AT ALL. My loaded mashed potatoes were also kind of meh looking. We notified our server, Jade J., who brought out a cup of different mushrooms, yet they also looked pretty dark, close to black on 1 side of many of these in the cup. So my husband quietly found a manager who agreed the original mushrooms were not correct. He offered to get different mushrooms and fresh fries but no resolution for my potatoes. The fries that eventually came out were an improvement but were EXTREMELY salty in taste, I eventually just couldn't eat anymore of them. The steak I ate while I was waiting for my other food had obviously been on a grill that was too hit because it was crispy charred on the outside and more medium rare than medium on the inside. I did eat the potatoes, though they were barely warm partly due to time wasted to try to get resolutions. In the meantime, Jade J. kept letting my drink go empty, and this continued until we left. The manager returned about the mushrooms and told us he spoke with the chef, who agreed the first mushrooms were wrong, but the cup of mushrooms were how they are always served. We did not and do not agree with this. However, he did offer to have the price removed from our ticket for the mushrooms. We do not believe his story because, as a manager, he should 1st know what looks correct without even discussing it with his chef. I've also searched pictures online of other sautéed mushrooms from other Texas Roadhouse locations, and they looked nothing like these blackened and charred pieces of destroyed fungi. We both feel the Manager failed in his duty to try to make or fix things right. We should've had an honest and sincere apology asking to remake our meals correctly because now things that were supposed to go with stuff is just piece fed...not a way you want to impress us to return. He could've also offered to comp us 25 or 50% for today and/or given a gift card to return... Stating I am so very sorry for these errors today, I will be working with my staff to fix them for the benefit of our future customers and I'd also like to give you a $20 gift card to return and try us again. Texas Roadhouse is not a cheap restaurant to go to, and customers should be valued better than what we were today. It has now been 5.5 hrs since finishing my meal and I still feel things were not dealt with professionally.

We had a group of 6 adults and a two yr old and an infant but because two of the adults were not there yet Texas Roadhouse would not seat our party until we were all present. After we asked why the host and hostess said "it is our policy" Well have you ever tried waiting with a 2 year old... we tried to explain this to the Host and again his response was it is our policy.. it was 4:15 on a Saturday but they were not willing to make an exception to the policy... we were going to spend $300+ in there restaurant with dinner and drinks but to no avail... instead we went right down the street and spent our money at a different restaurant... bad business decision Texas Roadhouse...

Enjoy their food, even though a lot like Outback Steakhouse! Steaks are good, but Outback’s are superb! A bit noisy for someone with hearing issues, though...

Y'all ready fer a good time? Well I hope so partners, cause this place is roping you to believe that you have moseyed on over to different parts than Ames Iowa. Corny schtick is prevalent at the roadhouse. Food, service and drinks were good. Prices are fair. Watch for the ever present upsell.
