The food was delicious and the location is great, but the booth table we sat at was very cramped. The wait staff was not very attentive or interested in ensuring they understood what we wanted and delivering an exceptional experience.

We had a party of nine. The staff was competent and professional. With a variety of food ordered, we heard glowing remarks about all of the entrees. The queso and the guac recieved high marks for quality and taste. Bar has a solid selection of bourbon and scotch.

Awesome dinner with friends. We had 6 different entrees and all of them were excellent. Not often am I impressed by restaurants, but definitely will return to Roaring Fork. They deserve a five star rating!

Had a great evening with dinner first and dessert later in the evening. Had a fabulous waitress. Sorry I can’t remember her name. You helped us carry on a 35 year tradition of going to the Nutcracker, then to dinner, carriage ride, and dessert to complete the evening. Meal a little pricey, but it was delicious and afterall it is Christmas!

I have been to Roaring Fork many times. My redfish was hot and spot on.My girlfriend had the fish tacos which were cold when they arrived. Also they had bones in them which was odd. Because we were going to a show we didn't have time for them to re-do it.

We have eaten here a number of times. It is noisy, and a crying baby did not make it any better. The waiter was nice, when we saw him, it just took a while to get our order in. I ordered pork and asked for it to be cooked well, it was well done on the ends and raw in the middle. I like rare beef, but not pork! My husband has the trout every time we go and he loves it. I wish there was a 6 oz,. ladies steak with sides, the least was 8 oz and I just don't eat that much in the evenings. I know that we will go again.

The hostess sat us next to two large tables full of rowdy, loud people. I couldn’t hear my boyfriend who was sitting next to me speak, much less my parents across the table. This is not the place for a nice dinner.
