Around RowHouse this week... 

I was reminded often these past few weeks of how much of an impact RowHouse has had on myself, the staff here, and our Topeka Community.  Sometimes while you're in the middle of something, you're not always aware of the ripple effect going on.  10 Summer's ago seems like yesterday when this whole ship got off the ground and I am still in awe of this House, and of you who keep coming back and embracing each new menu, each new crew member, each new wonderful and colorful event we put on.  You built this House with me, and I'm very Thankful.  We plan to continue to make you proud, feed your hungers, and to keep putting out each plate with L.O.V.E.  

The new website date is soon, we are just being tentative with the final switch.  This site will the same web address that you've come to know.  Only the look will one day soon be different.  I would love your input, and encourage you to become a "Friend of RowHouse" when you see the prompts on the new page.  It will provide an email newsletter that we've always wanted to do, but just have never figured out before.  We'd love to see you soon for Dinner!  

Event's coming up fast.... 

  • MAY, 2016.  A Lovingly prepared and exciting launch of our website facelift.  You are going to love it!
  • JUNE 2, 2016.  House Concert Series.  Featuring the group EN POWER & LIGHT.  En Power & Light consists of three individuals whose mission is to encourage, excite, and propel people from where they are to where they want to be.  Their sound is a mixed collection including folk, blues, and soul steeped in rich three part harmony.  This is the first in our concert series to have the "Dinner and a Show option."  

Thanks for being here.

Please feel free to choose only one of the entrees and still enjoy the other courses.  We are also happy to make portions more "modest" if you would like.  We do our best to accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions. 

Please check our Summer  Vacation and Holiday hours listed on the "About Us" page of this website  

When making reservations please know the house has three levels and many unique dining rooms. The main floor is handicap accessible, but the top floor and garden level do have stairs. We try to honor table and floor request but are not always able to do so because of limited space for large groups. If you have a specific table or room you'd like, please let us know when making your reservation and we will do our best to make it happen. We are contantly looking for ways to make your evening with us even better.  One of us is on staff at RowHouse Wednesday through Saturday from 2 pm to Close.  We return calls Wednesday through Saturday in the order received.  

We have a lovely winelist, Premium Liquors, awesome cocktails, and great beers.   
Wine and Alcohol cannot be brought in to the restaurant as of April 1, 2011

HOLIDAY AND VACATION SCHEDULES
