We try to get to this restaurant every time we visit Scottsdale. Excellent food, particularly the chicken dishes, and first rate service. Can be on the noisy side, particularly if you are seated near a large group. Also difficult to find unless you know exactly where you are going - it is situated on the ground floor of a large office building and the Scottsdale Road address can be misleading.

Happy hour starts at 4 PM--get there early for a seat-- it fills up fast. We enjoy eating off the bar/happy hour menu. The snacks and openers are filling and tasty.

Wow --- at last a restaurant that has great service, great interior/atmosphere, a creative menu, and that is quiet enough that you can actually hold a conversation at the table. Price was extremely reasonable ($$-$$$) and our server was outstanding. We will definitely return!

A great place every time that we are in Arizona. My favorite go-to is always a huckleberry margarita. The jalapeno cornbread that comes with every meal is delicious and you have to try the green chile mac and cheese. Every dish I've ever had had never failed me!

Service was just ok. Waiter not very attentive. Steak under cooked. They heated it up more and returned. Rest of party finished dinner ahead of me. No manager follow up or anything else to make up for it. Steaks and sides were warm and not hot. Had to eat quick before they got too cold. The decor is too much of a log cabin feel.

My husband and I are from Pittsburgh, PA. We travel to Arizona every October. At each visit we always go to The Roaring Fork for dinner. This time we were seated by the kitchen, and both of us ordered the Delicious Spit-Roasted Half Chicken. The manager delivered our food and had suggested to get extra au jus, cuz the stuffing sucks up all the liquid. He made an excellent suggestion. Thank you so much.
The service is great and love how everyone works together. The atmosphere is very nice.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Thank you we will be back next year.
