    Beautiful setting on Quarry Lake and delicious food make this Austin original a favorite dining treat. Always great service, Roaring Fork is a perfect private event location. Ask to see the outdoor, covered patios. This restaurant makes for lovely memories.

    We stopped in for a steak and were not disappointed. Service was top notch and the restrooms were clean. Nice bar area which is separate from the dining and the have an outside area overlooking the quarry. We visited for my wife's birthday and she had a mojito. I had the Texas Kicker. We really enjoyed our visit.

    One of our favorites and did not disappoint with excellent service and the food was timed well with completion of appetizers. Steaks were done to perfection, however I would prefer smaller size cuts as 12 oz NY Strip was enough for two meals and did take half home. The staff seems well trained and are always pleasant and want to make your meal enjoyable with their attitude and service.

    We enjoyed the ambience and the food was delicious but the service was poor. The waiter was need up casually talking to one table for over 15 minutes (must have been friends or something) and when he finally did walk by I asked about our drinks and he responded that he had forgotten because he was talking. Very frustrating. The drinks arrived after we had finished the entire meal.

    Mainly due to the food, service and excellent service, it's a tradition for me and my two girlfriends to come to Roaring Fork for each of our birthdays. It's rare to find a restaurant that offers delicious choices but also provides such outstanding service. So, Thank You and we will see you soon :)

    I’ve enjoyed several pork chops at Roaring Fork and couldn’t stop talking about them to my co-workers. After cocktails and an app, the chips land on the table… and my jaw drops. Nothing like the previous French trimmed, near fatless charred to perfection beauties we came to Austin for. These were long single rib bones, with more non-consumable fat than meat. Barely charred. I was Ashamed to have spoken so highly of them to my peers. Caution, and ask about the quality of the meat or the skill of the nights chef before ordering the prize tomahawk pork chop. Huge disappoint.

    Delicious food as always and the service was excellent. The only complaint was the noise level, we were seated on the patio in the happy hour area near a large party and they became so loud it was difficult to hear the other 3 people at our table talk. Wish the seating for large parties would be moved away from smaller tables.

    Delicious appetizers, entrees, and tasty selection of beverages were ordered and enjoyed. The service was good, not great, but still attentive to our needs. The ambiance is divine and the aroma of wood-fired food only adds to the experience. The pork chili verde was the best ever tasted. The blackened redfish was surrounded by the perfect combination of vegetables and low carbs to make your mouth water upon reflection. I can't wait to come back.

    We like minimal music when dining so I recommend eating on the patio here. Very nice. There was music inside but it was not loud on the patio. Also remember to scan the QR code. It had a few extra menu items.

    We celebrated our daughter’s birthday last night. Roaring Fork made the evening unforgettable. 7:00 on a busy Saturday evening and our reservations were honored immediately. I mention this because many of the top restaurants in the area are pretty casual about respecting reservation times. We were seated at the booth I asked for and at our daughter’s place was a note from management welcoming her and wishing her a happy birthday. Our waitress was Whitney who despite having several large parties to handle, took very good care of us all evening. Because the place was so busy we placed all of our orders at once, asking that the food and drinks come out slowly and on time. All done to perfection! Not much else to say except the food and service were exceptional as usual. Definitely our go to place for special occasions

    Was expecting a lot for the price and the way the restaurant advertised itself. Beautiful porch and views, inside of the restaurant was great too. Drinks were only okay, food was good except my steak showed up cold (like colder than room temperature). I didn’t send it back to not harm my dining partner’s experience, so I can’t say that the restaurant wouldn’t have made it right graciously. But for a $55 ribeye at a restaurant that prides itself on protein, it was a red flag. Our service was slow because there were two parties of 8-12 people in our section and there were not enough servers. It wasn’t our server’s fault and we still tipped properly, but the restaurant has a responsibility to staff well enough for its reservations that night. Hard to say I would go back when there are so many other places to try, but I would consider it if I was prioritizing ambiance over food.

    We were seated at a great window table for two in the bar. Our waiter was busy, but pleasant and attentive. The food can best be described as “Salt, saltier and saltiest.” We ordered a Caesar Salad to share plus Happy Hour Beef Sliders and Fish Tacos. The salad was a bit heavy on salt, the sliders were saltier but edible with ample swallows of happy hour draft beer, however lots of beer could not wash down all of the salt that seemed to have been dumped on the fish tacos. We asked our waiter to take away and replace the tacos after only two bites. A few minutes later the manager brought a replacement order of tacos, but seemed a bit annoyed when we mentioned that all of our food was excessively salty. The second batch of tacos were excellent … just like we were accustomed to getting at Roaring Fork on prior visits.

    The hostess said there was no room on the patio where they offer happy hour. And she wanted it to sound like missing out on the happy hour was no big deal, "it's just a couple of dollars off anyway." But that's not really accurate - the happy hour menu has options on it that are not *on* the regular menu. For example, the ability to order just one fish taco. We could see that there were empty tables on the "full" patio so perhaps the lack of room was because of a lack of available servers. Bottom line: we didn't order as much food and alcohol as we would have, so the restaurant actually brought in less revenue from our table. We might not be willing to return - we'll see.

    This was our first time eating here. We had heard good things about Roaring Fork and it did not disappoint. It is one of the nicest restaurants we've been to in the Austin area as far as location, decor and ambience. The food was very good. All the adults had steaks, three filets and one ribeye. They were very good. Mashed potatoes, street corn and green chile mac and cheese were delicious. We will be back, thank you!

    We love this restaurant. The view of lake is great. Better yet the food is outstanding. The wait staff always treats us well. If you want to sit in the restaurant or on the patio be sure to make a reservation days in advance. You can always get a seat at the bar and they have nice tables in there too. Plus there are tvs if you are into watching sports. The green chili pork appetizer is oh so good.
