About Something Good Roadhouse


Originally called Bird Rock Roadhouse in the early 50’s, Something Good Roadhouse has been somewhat of an icon of Port Elizabeth from years gone by.  Out of a love for the area and surfing community, combined with fond memories growing up as a child in Summerstrand, our team pulled a team together to bring the old roadhouse back to life. 

The existing structure was upgraded, given a more modern façade with a workable, customer friendly lay out without losing its old-world surfer charm, consisting of the sit down restaurant, bar area, ice-cream parlour and roadhouse / take-away section, where locals could come and enjoy the vibe from the good old days and park your car in the parking lot and "flick your lights" for service.

The vision was to keep the original footprint of the existing structure while giving the “old school roadhouse feel” a new twist all while providing value for money meals from the freshest ingredients, with an amazing view of Pollock Beach.


We serve that summer feeling all year around!  If you’re looking for breath taking views of the ocean with wholesome food that will satisfy the meanest hunger after a long day at the beach, then you’ve come to the right place.  Something Good Roadhouse revisits the classic roadhouse of yesteryear while keeping up with the good times of today.  Whether it’s a long lazy lunch to escape the bustle or a quick meal at the roadhouse, we’ve got you covered.
