Food, as always, was excellent and the service was impeccable. As an added little positive, one of the nightly specials was named after me. My wife had "my" special and thought it was especially tasty. My steak was really flavorful. Really enjoyed our evening.

Wanted to like this place more than I did. Salads were good, main courses disappointing. My half rack of ribs were cold and looked like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for hours. Husband’s $28 special was not good: shrimp, mussels and halibut were all not fresh. Maybe they had to clear out the freezer. For that kind of $$ everything should have been fresh! Didn’t stay for dessert. And would have been nice if bread were offered with the salads.

I had crab soup and mussels. They were just okay. I’ve had better and will not order either of these items here again. What truly upset me about my experience was finding out (after I returned home) that the waitress spilled brown broth from the mussels into my beige designer pocketbook!!!

Ordered the shrimp and grits, got a bowl of soup with a little bit of grits, sent it back manager agreed it was not right and was more like soup than shrimp and grits.
Changed to crab cake Benedict ordered the eggs extra soft, with manager there cut into the first egg yolk did not run and basically solid. He did offer to replace them but my wife was 50% done already so I did not want to wait again.
I do not want anything for nothing just what I ordered, after 2 dishes being wrong, and not a customer being overly picky, it would have been nice to have adjusted the price of my eggs that were not cooked right but NO. So I tipped the waitress 20% since she was nice and did not cook the food but the odds of me ever going back are slim to none.

Being new in Charlotte, we were looking for places to dine where the food would be comparable to our Louisiana cuisines. Red Rock was pretty good. We had the Sunday brunch and hubby ordered the Shrimp N Grits. It's his favorite dish and he was satisfied. I had the chicken and waffles and too was pretty satisfied. The pecan pie we split for dessert was different. All in all, I would recommend Red Rock to others.

Took my 17 year old daughter to dinner while the rest of our family was out of town. The entrees were very good. We also ordered tater tots as an appetizer and they were mediocre (how do you mess up tots? Serving them a little below room temperature is a good way to start). The serving size for a $5 dollar charge was laughably small too.
As was the complete absence of any seasoning whatsoever.

Red rocks does a great job with most of its menu. My advice: drop the tots or at least move it to the kids menu to reduce expectations.
