The Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store Restaurant, is a multi-faceted site in downtown Pittsboro. It’s a venue and restaurant that offers a variety of dishes, from salads to pasta to burgers. Additionally, just about any night, a band is performing and that makes it a fun live music and dancing venue. Restaurant guests are fans of the large floor to ceiling window in the front, which provides a grand view of the historic Chatham County Courthouse. Guests hosting a meeting find the back area a productive space and the weddings are intimate, with the perfect place to dance as if no one is watching!
Pricing: Owners, Greg and Maria Lewis, do not charge for the space unless there is no food & beverage order placed. The entrees range from $10 – 25 and offerings include tasty seasonal dishes so, to date, no one has ever met on-site without ordering meals. Also, there is no charge for occasional town or county meetings, a helpful perk to those scheduling community gatherings.
Capacity: Weddings are an option here, with 150 seated guests accommodated in the back area. Furthermore, they offer three types of tables and chairs that many brides like, which is one less detail since choices are available and it’s one less vendor to involve when planning. The venue can seat 150 – 175 theater style with rented chairs.
Basic Specs: Full bar is available, A/V is available, with the room. The venue has the capability of parking 50 cars in their parking lot (across the street) and there is also downtown street parking. Clients can opt for valet parking if preferred (request the services through the venue).
