Food was extraordinary. Rainbow trout was among the best I've ever had. Margaritas were ho-hum. The were 4 tables of 8-12 people in the main dining room, so it was too loud.

An Austin staple with good reputation. Our waitress was lovely and patient. Happy hour was a great choice for all of our options.
It did however feel like a chain resturant, not that it was bad, just when you deal in volume the quaintness falls by the wayside.
Perfect for tourist... with children... or after work get together with office buddies.
There was an outside, that I would have liked to been able to dine at with a lovely view of the lake, but it was cold😔
Children’s menu was provided with healthy options++

It had been a couple years since the last time I ate here and had forgotten how loud the dining area can be. It's not easy to carry on a conversation without strain, so you can take romantic dining out of the equation. The wait service was good, but I would not say friendly, almost arrogant and uninviting. The ordering of food and drinks was fine, the timeliness of the meal delivery was reasonable and the food was good. But overall, I would say I was not impressed with he whole experience and question my return anytime soon.

Went for my daughters birthday. Service was excellent. Steaks were fabulous and cooked well. Blackened redfish was really good and the sides were delicious. Loved the Mexican corn.

This was our first time at this restaurant. We went for a lunch date and everything was fantastic. Food was very good and a good value. They have a lot of lunch specials and many options to choose from. I had a hard time deciding what to order. The waiter was great and the restaurant has a nice ambiance. We will definitely be back for lunch again to try some of the other options that sounded good. We also want to come for dinner. Highly recommend for a nice restaurant with great food at a reasonable price.

Understated and appealing setting with ample dining area, with banquettes and tables, separate and spacious bar area. Tables spaced well to allow for comfortable dining. Service was very good; food well prepared and bountiful. Will return.

My only criticism is the coffee. I ordered a latte and it was lukewarm. I sent it back & there was no improvement. Our waitress, Vanessa, was fantastic. I got that it was the equipment & not her fault. But not a good end to a great meal.

Great venue for a family get together to celebrate the holidays. Staff was very attentive to our needs and sat us early even though it was prior to our reservation time. Great views of a small lake. Also, good for kids and teens. Food was also excellent!

We had an early dinner during the Christmas holiday season. We prefer to be seated outside on the deck, as the wooded lake view is both a scenic and relaxing setting. Since it was too chilly for comfort, the covered and very cozy "outdoor" area was fine. Our three entrees were nicely prepared and our service could not have been better. Consistency, ambiance and quality best describe this outstanding restaurant.

The service was fantastic with beautiful ambiance. We were in the patio, but we couldn't see the lake as it was dark outside. Enjoyed our dinner. Little expensive though.

My husband and I had dinner together with my daughter and her boyfriend, for the first time at Roaring Fork Restaurant in North Austin, Texas, on Sunday, December 17th. The corn muffins that came before our meals were delicious. My daughter, who has a gluten free diet, had the blackened redfish which she enjoyed very much. My husband had the roasted half chicken, which he thought was good but not as warm as he would have liked. Both my daughter’s boyfriend and I had burgers, which were good, however, I did not like one of the toppings that came on my burger, but I am not sure which one it was. I think it could have been one of the peppers on it, which were poblano or smoked peppers. The service was excellent, portions generous, and the atmosphere was quite vibrant with nice comfortable seating. This is a popular restaurant with a large crowd requiring a reservation, even on a Sunday night. It is definitely a restaurant to try and I am glad we made a reservation.

We live approximately 70 miles away and return often to Roaring Fork just for the muscles and chorizo, along many other delightful entrees. SO good, so creative with excellent wait staff and customer care.

I've come back now for the 6th time. The food selection is great. The bacon wrapped pork tenderloin is fantastic as is the pork verde appetizer is a must. It does get loud in the dinning room but not something that would cause me to not come back.
