I would have preferred a table for my two friends but, the booth kept us separated and the noise level somewhat abated. It was lunchtime and very hot so we wanted a table inside. Our server, Olivia, was very friendly and looked after us. The food was very good- as always.

We LOVE this restaurant. It's not local for us, but we make the trip for the food, service and ambience. We ate outside yesterday, and it was beautiful. They have a lovely patio - spacious and clean. I had the petite filet with smashed garlic potatoes and vegetable medley. Everything was perfect; the steak was done just the way I like it. Our waitress, Oliva, was very very nice - very friendly and professional. We eat out a lot, and I can see eating at this restaurant becoming a weekly occurrence for us. It is worth the trip from Indian Land.

We made reservations through the Open Table app. We arrived a little early and had a drink in the bar area. When our table was ready they moved us to another table within the entrance/bar area……..that was a bit disappointing as I think we could have just walked in and sat at the bar to eat.

Once sat we waited over 5 minutes for a waiter to recognize us. In fact the host recognized this and went and tracked down a waiter for us. Needless to say the waiter wasn’t apologetic nor did he have a pleasant/enjoyable personality the entire rest of the dinner.

Once the meal arrived things got better. The food was great!!! Kudos to the chefs for salvaging this overall rating.

As always, we had an amazing meal at Red Rocks! It never disappoints. I pretty much always get tuna appetizer and a salad with Blacked Grilled Chicken. Service and atmosphere are great as well. Very friend staff always ensures and excellent dining experience!

The food was delicious! She crab soup was so good! We had salmon, lobster ravioli and grouper as our main course and carrot cake for dessert. The service was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Having a reservation resulted in quick seating. Wonderful evening with our beautiful Grandaughter

Great food and service. We drove to this particular red rocks even though we live in Indian land where there is a red rocks Because they have gone back to their pre-Covid full menu which Indian land has not. We were very happy to, once again, enjoy crabcakes. Everything was delicious. If you live where either of the two restaurants is a choice, choose this one over Indian land. You won’t be sorry.

Red rocks has a great menu with a variety of main courses, sides, and sandwiches. The burger s are quite large served with plenty of extras and an abundance of sides

We ate on the covered patio which was pleasant even in the early evening hours on a hot day. There is also a section of the patio in the open if you prefer.

Service was excellent and proper. This is one of our favorite places for a casual meal or just an appetizer and drinks.

We had a delightful experience for lunch at Red Rocks in Strawberry Hill today. Our server, Stephen, was prompt and polite and very attentive. The owner, John Love, came by to check on our experience and chatted with us for a few minutes. The food came out quickly, hot and delicious. The hostesses even greeted us warmly and wished us a nice day on the way out. This is a restaurant that you can rely on for a great dining experience. We'll be back!

We have a group of church choir friends that had been meeting every week for dinner at Red Rocks before choir practice. The food is always great and we all have our favorites. Red Rocks is always very accommodating and we can adjust the number on our reservation as needed. This past week was the first time since March 2020 that we were able to resume our weekly dinner and it was great!
