I just read today that the Rockport Roadhouse has closed. I'm not here to necessarily lament the fact from a foodie perspective, but I do think it served a particular "family" niche.
Here's my question. That place was ALWAYS packed when it was Cody's. After it became the Roadhouse, it looked like a ghost town (and my understanding is that it was the same owners). Does anybody know what happened?
Hadn't heard that but I am not surprised. Seems like the last two times I went, once as Cody's once as Rockport Roadhouse, the food and service had taken a turn for the worse. Really too bad as it was a great place at one time to take my entire family for a good meal that was a decent value as well.
The Rockport Roadhouse which was as said, Cody's. Cody's Roadhouse has 12 franchise locations around Florida and at one time, thought that it was a good idea to franchise in mid-coast Maine. I don't know what went "south" with the deal with the local owners, probably it just got too tight.
