Roux’s is located in the Odd Fellows Building in the heart of the Woodbine Main Street District. Originally constructed in 1878 as the Odd Fellows Lodge #405, this Italianate style building is the cornerstone of our downtown. For generations, children of the days have convened here to discuss events (I.O.O.F Lodge, 1878 - 1903) conduct business (Siebels' Department Store, 1904 - 1954), and break bread (Bob’s Cafe, 1972 - 1998). Today, in its 3rd American century, we’re proud to call this revered building our home.
Roux’s features a Modern American menu with a touch of Italian influence, informed by seasonal produce and established local favorites. All menu items consist of food prepared in-house, cooked from raw ingredients, and carefully chosen from conscientious purveyors. Our lunch menu caters to guests seeking a timely and economical dining option, while dinner offers casual table service and a menu that invites guests to savor some of the finest cuisine in the area.
Ross Clark, Roux’s executive chef and founder, is a native of Woodbine. His background in French and Italian fine-dining cuisine, coupled with his familiarity with local culture, tastes, and sensibilities, inspire a menu that balances tradition and innovation. “This restaurant has been years in the making and all we want to do is give people a great place to eat. We plan on keeping things simple and delicious, and we will do everything we can to make our guests happy.” - Ross Clark, Chef
