The Roadhouse Barbecue is a large, three story restaurant situated precisely on the corner of Rama IV Road and Surawong Road.
You can travel to this bar by taking the MRT to Silom MRT Station, or by taking the BTS To Sala Daeng BTS Station. From Sala Daeng BTS Station, stay on the Skywalk and follow the signs for the MRT, all the way to Rama IV Road. When the Skywalk comes to a “T” intersection, go left.
From Silom MRT Station, follow signs for the BTS, taking escalators up to the Skywalk, and proceed until you intersect with the main Skywalk that is directly above Silom Road, and running in the same direction as Silom Road. This will put you at the same “T” intersection, but coming in from the right branch of the “T”. Proceed straight ahead to the left branch of the “T”.
From either starting point, you are now moving along the left branch of the “T”. At your first opportunity, take a left and descend the stairway to the street. At street level, double-back to your right. Almost immediately, you will be at the corner of Silom and Rama IV Roads. Bear left, and proceed down the sidewalk paralleling Rama IV Road. You have to walk about350 meters, straight ahead. When you come to the first (huge) intersection where a road crosses Rama IV from the right, the Roadhouse Barbecue will be on your left. The entrance is actually on the corner (you will be coming from where the half person is visible at left edge of photo) :
This restaurant is owned and run by American Dana Edward Caron:
This was one the very first places in Bangkok to offer American craft beers.
This venue has a large kitchen staff and operation, offering the extensive menu that you can see behind Dana in the picture up above. I particularly enjoy their seafood chowder, and their beef brisket sandwich.
The full menu is not available on-line, but highlights are presented at https://roadhousebarbecue.com/#menu
The road house has separate bars on both the first (ground) floor, and on the third floor, with the ground floor kitchen serving to all three floors. Clean, well-maintained toilets are located on the second floor, off an alcove to the left of the stairwell, as you come up from the ground floor.
The largest bar is on the ground floor, and they often have a duet – guitarist and vocalist – performing live in the evening.
