Went with husband for Easter Brunch. Didn’t see anything telling us pre fixed menu at $34 per person. Didn’t wait too long but eggs Benedict was cold, muffin and ham were tough. Deviled eggs appetizer very good which we had boxed up to go along with dessert. We walked off & forgot them went back to get them few mins later and they had already been trashed. We were given new desserts but passed on eggs. Bill was around $85 - $90 for worst meal I’ve ever had there.

We have been to Red Rocks many times but not since their renovations. Not sure what else has changed, the management? The menu has some small changes but the food was the biggest change. Nowhere near as good as before. Very disappointing, I don't think we will be going back.

We usually love this restaurant. However, the night we went they got my nephew's order wrong, my sister-in-law's steak was cold, and they got the bills wrong. It was the night before Easter and I wonder if they were understaffed in preparation for the full day on Sunday. This is no excuse when the patron pays a lot of money for good service.

This is one of the best kept secrets in the Southpark area - neighborhood feel and the atmosphere is great. Menu is amazing. Really like the reference to local people on the menu - I even recognized some old boys from Garringer who made the list. I cut the filet with a fork! Amazing - ran into some old friends - The construction around it was a little inconvenient but not a nuisance.
Will be back for more!

Everything was fine after we got the attention of a server. My daughter is in the food service industry and after 15 min. she got up and asked if we were going to have a server. No water. Nothing. However, after that, everything went very smoothly and the food was delicious.

Great food... surprising given the setting which is more that of a bar/pub than a romantic, or upscale restaurant. The decor, the staff, the noise level, is reminiscent of a sport bar/pub. However the food is clearly a step above and could easily be compared to business or more upscale restaurants. Would recommend for several people birthday parties as well... but not for a romantic or kind-of-fancy diner to celebrate an anniversary or birthday (unless you are young-at-heart and like the bar-like decor). Will go back for the food!

Food is mediocre at best, most of it is under seasoned and has very little flavor, the drinks are watery and over priced, the overall price to value is very poor. I would not recommend it unless to go there and for an overpriced pub experience, don't try to get too fancy and keep the cost down.
