I have been to 5 restaurants since we began to dine inside. This is the only establishment where staff is not wearing masks. I was surprised at how loud (naturally loud voice) my waiter was and standing close and holding onto one of the chairs at our table. I’m not one of these ultra safe persons- but come on management it’s too early for that.

We had an excellent dinner at a restaurant that we had sort of forgotten about over the years. Liz provided excellent service. The restaurant did a good job of distancing diners. Thanks for being open!

Red Rock’s is a longtime favorite for me. The service is always stellar but the past few times I’ve ordered the salmon well done, it comes out medium. I do not like to send food back to the kitchen so, I did not inform the server. I took most of my meal home and heated it up for dinner and it was perfect. The next time I get the salmon, I will be sure to mention this to ensure my salmon is served well done. It’s great to be dining in Red Rock’s again!

A very professional and efficient experience. In a day where places seem to be more concerned about ambiance, decor and gimmicks Red Rocks sticks with what works, good food and even better service. The staff was always on point without being intrusive, the atmosphere was relaxed and everyone seemed to be having a good time. My wife and I spent over 20 years in food and beverage management, so we can be very hard to please but this by far was our best experience out, in a long time!! Thank you

Service makes or breaks an experience. Came on 2/28/20 to celebrate an amazing month at work for myself, and a promotion for my husband. Our server, Daniel, was awfully rude and treated us like we were children. At one point, he waved his finger back and forth at me and said, “let me take care of other things first” when I ordered a dessert to-go. He also treated us this way a previous time he severed us. My husband’s order came out wrong, and he made it seem like it was our fault and argued that my husband ordered it the way it came. The manager comped our meal this visit, and gave an [insincere sounding] speech to apologize, but this service was so terrible that even with that, unfortunately, we will not be back.

We went for a special Valentines meal. First I have to say that the food was great!! My wife had the crab cakes and I had the blackened grouper. Bother entrées came with grilled mixed vegetables. The crab cakes were good but a bit on the mild side. I asked to have the cream sauce normally served on the blackened salmon added to my grouper. The fish was outstanding. Delicate and tender. I did not realize they were going to charge me $1.20 for the sauce but w/e ... it was worth it.

The prices were a bit higher than expected but that won’t stop me from going back again. Again... worth it.

Also they were running a drink special... any drink of a particular brand of vodka for $7.50. Very nice of them!

Knocked a star for value (prices) and knocked a star for comfort as we outside directly under the heater and we got rather warm while others were complaining about being cold. I realize it’s hard to make outdoor seating as comfortable as indoor seating.

Overall a very nice meal.

We had an issue with Bernaise sauce being cold for our Valentines dinner. Asked for it to be warmed up three times and all three time it came back cold. Very frustrating. However, the server was very good and the manager did not charge us for the meals. We will go back as we’ve had 3 other great meals there.
