    I wish them luck, especially since they introduced their Pizza Propane tank.
    A pizza with half veggies and half meat.
    Nice way to alienate 3/4 of the region when starting a new business!

    Whether you are for or against the tank, as someone who is coming into our town as a new business, it would probably be wise to keep snarky opinions to yourself, at least for a while, no?

    Ate there…pretty average food, long wait, not impressed.

    After years of putting other restaurants out of business as a landlords charging high rent year round, I hope the favor is returned this time.

    If the olives run down the center of the pizza as a divider, then when you cut the pizza they’re all going to fall off as people take pieces. *shakes head* For shame on the poor design, for shame. ;P

    I won’t be stopping in, and I had in fact planned too. Not because I think they’re necessarily for or against the terminal, but people both for and against this terminal are taking this issue very seriously.
    And I don’t think anyone who feels they have a future in one of 8-11 jobs this will bring as a local hire, or those who feel it’s a serious risk to the region’s safety and economy, particularly appreciate having what can be a life changing matter to one side or the other devolved to the point of a satirical pizza topping option.

    It’s in very poor taste.

    And maybe to other reader’s it isn’t. But I would expect most people who don’t think so, live far enough away as to not be effected by the tank.

    BUT there already is a Roadhouse…and its on Route 1…in Woolwich. I propose that Chris and Jenny (of the Roadhouse) make them change their name.

      Enough with the frivolous lawsuits! Do you have any idea how many restaurants have some form of Road House in their name throughout the country? If you can read, I think you can grasp the concept that its a different restaurant.

      Are you serious?? I hope not.

    I have eaten at the restaurant a few times now. Opening night the food was well prepared,the staff was very friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was inviting. I found the wait time on their first week open to be a bit long but very comparable to that of Olive Garden or Bugaboo Creek on a busy night. I have waited longer at those places to be served. It seems like everyone wants sit down dinners with fast food service and prices. I enjoy going out for the dining experience and the time to have conversation in this mad world of rushing from place to place. The pricing of their food product is no higher than say Anglers or Darbys and for what you receive very fair. I am glad we have a new spot to dine.

    I don’t believe the naming of the pizza is their “snarky opinion” on the proposed propane terminal. I felt that this was an owner abreast of what is happening in the community in which their business lies. Dark humor? Possibly, but I saw it as a conversation starter. We arrived, saw the name, ordered the pizza and began a conversation on the pros and cons of such a proposal. There are equally as many pros and cons on oil, wind, tidal, natural gas etc. and yes, I live in the area so this greatly affects my life. As a new business in town I cannot imagine they would “bite off the hand that feeds them” by intentionally upsetting the people of Searsport.
