Roaring Fork is an American Western Bistro. We utilize a combination of ingredients indigenous to the American West and locally grown, including produce, to capture the 'spirit' of the west. The restaurant offers a comfortable, laid back environment that includes friendly professional service and the highest quality food. A great deal of attention is paid in creating the recipes and always using ingredients that are found in the American West. Western cuisine is not a ceremony; it's a celebration! The robust flavors and the courage to try something different is what we are all about. We would like to invite everyone to experience our 'spirit' while enjoying our food and hospitality.

The food was good but the tables lacked ambiance. Nothing on them except salt and pepper. They were large tables and looked uninviting

Fabulous recommendation from a friend led us to Roaring Fork. The menu is diverse and the food was delicious! The service was also wonderful.

Have not visit in a few years and the quality remained at a high level. Entrees tend to be a bit pricy and menu is basic. Still, good quality for the price.

We showed up on time for a reservation sat outside on a patio enclosed it was noisy the service was slow when my food came it was cold I had to send it back so my three guess had to sit and wait for mine to come back out all they did was re-cook my duck breast left the cold vegetables on the plate. Sat there waiting for service went inside the restaurant 5 or 6 of the servers were watching the 49er football game at the bar

Good food and wine. The Brussels sprouts were tasty but a little limp. The prime steak was good except not really enough flavor for the price.

We enjoyed everything about our experience at the Roaring Fork. We celebrated my husband's birthday there. We found the management to be caring and more than accommodating concerning a snag in the gift receipt department. We highly recommend this restaurant to others.

The steak was filled with grizzle. The lighting was horrible and in your eyes. The upholstery was torn in our booth.

This will be our last visit to Roaring Fork. The service was very poor. We waited so long for someone to come to our table that we started to try to see if we could quickly get into another restaurant. This was a milestone birthday for my wife. I called in advance to ensure they knew and to attempt to arrange something special for her. They had no record of my call. It was all a bit of a train wreck. The food was OK, but seemed a poor comparison to prior meals.

Our server, Austin was fantastic! He was a great balance of friendly and professional. We had an issue with a drink and he just smiled and took care of it. I can’t say enough about this young man. He really made our evening. We love Roaring Fork, the food and atmosphere are great and he just made it better.

Very lively atmosphere. The menu choices were very nice.
The trout was fabulous and so was the mixed greens salad with walnuts and cranberries.
We will definitely dine here again.

The restaurant was recommended by some local friends. The atmosphere is quiet and targets a more mature patron. The menu had a variety of options for our group. We enjoyed drinks, appetizers, the 3 course meal, some other entree items, and dessert. Unfortunately, the service was slow overall. When we asked for separate checks the server condescendingly said “For future reference, you need to ask at the beginning.” This could’ve been handled better by the server as we felt scolded for making a request after the check had been dropped. The last 15 minutes of our visit made for a slightly disappointing dining experience.

As a side note, the bill wasn’t right but we managed to fix it on our end.

Adam was wonderful! One of the best bartenders I have ever seen. Great conversationalist, perfect service and made my wife (Shelly) and I feel like we were special.

As a secondary note, the happy hour here is a good one. Fantastic options for food, and the ambiance is nice too.

This is one of the best dining experiences I’ve had, since relocating last April. The ambience is warm and inviting. I had the buttermilk fried chicken/mash potatoes and the green chili Mac. Comfort food at it’s finest!!! Our server went above and beyond taking care of us. And the price point is spot on. They nailed the concept of this little gem. Keep this fork roaring!!!! Kindly, Lisa

25 mins to get our drink order
Ordering meal then told our selections were not available ( might be helpful to tell guests about this when you give them the menu)
A request for bread was then met with the absurd comment that this service was not available due to Covid
When eventually entree of pork carnitas shoulder arrived it was stone cold
At this point I sent it back and just asked for the tab and pleased to end a miserable dining experience that lasted 90 frustrating minute’s

Always wonderful food at the roaring Fork! Unfortunately, I am stuck on the trout and can’t seem to order anything else because it is so awesome! My boyfriend ordered the special five course with the fillet and it was done perfectly.
