My husband and I just visited 2 nights ago, and even though he was under the weather, he loved the steak (I had the carnitas dish--- meat was so tender and tasty, and I don't even eat meat too much!). Our waitress was amazing and attentive. Although food was good, the environment seemed more pretentious than the quality you get...... More

My wife and I have, for years, gone to another nearby establishment for New Year's and opted this year to switch things up. Good decision. We did not regret it. I like the service at Roaring Fork a great deal. They are pretty attentive. They are enthusiastic about providing a great dining experience. The food is really good. The filet... More

Met friends for lunch. I had never eaten here but my friend told me it was delicious and she was so right! I had fries and the hamburger, and both were so good. My friends food looked very good also. I had the French 75 Cocktail. YUMMM! Prices were very reasonable for the quality of food. Décor was pleasant and... More

The wood smoke as one enters the restaurant promises a lot, but the restaurant really doesn't deliver! The food and service are average and the prices are high. You'd be better off going somewhere else for steaks.

I came on a Friday. This was my first visit to Roaring Fork. It's a very nice mid range restaurant. I had the salmon for dinner and it was delicious. My partner had the filet mignon and he said that it was fantastic. For dessert we had the flourless chocolate torte. Yummy is all that I can say. The wait... More

Has dinner with friends on a last minute gathering. What a surprise. The food was excellent, service was attentive without being pushy. We had steaks which were cooked nicely over wood fire. Great restaurant. Don't miss the chance to eat here.

Not only were our appetizers and entrees excellent, but the desserts we had were memorable! Our table tried the Chocolate Torte and Chocolate Pecan Pie with Butter Pecan ice cream. The Pecan pie was so good with a hint of cinnamon and a great crust, too. Daniel was a great server. The restaurant is busy and loud and you might... More

We've eaten at the Roaring Fork for lunch or dinner but only for brunch once - last Sunday. My wife had the honey fried chicken and I had the Elgin sausage megas. Putting honey over fried chicken doesn't cut it and using the title "Elgin Sausage" only works if you actually put some Elgin Sausage in the Megas. Elgin sausage... More

Roaring Forks has such an active bar scene that one could think that was the main attraction. It is indeed a lot of fun, but the food is quite excellent. Cooked with a wood fire, the fish dishes and the burgers are terrific ! This is a special place for occasions or a date night. There is a patio with... More
