This an upper scale eatery with a layed back vibe. We had attentive service and excellent food. The menu is American classics, upscaled. even a fried chicken (delicious). Try the Excellent guacamole starter. Good wine list. Would go again.

The Roaring Fork is a great option for creative, fresh southwestern style cuisine in Scottsdale. The space is HUGE and has a beautiful open space which is outdoors but sheltered. Our meals were expertly prepared. My port tenderloin was "very good" but I would not rate it among best I've ever had. The others at the table all enjoyed their... More

Service and quality of food cannot be beat. They even can assist with smaller areas for business groups. The menu is diverse. The preparation is superb. The results are mouth watering. This is a must.

Not the place for me . . . but everything I complained about, Mrs, contradicted . . . so there's that . . . Went there for Valentine's Dinner . . . the valentine special was a 62 oz Tomahawk Rib-Eye (shared by two, but even so!) . . . i found the interior rather industrial-shed-like, rather than modern, but...

Try the huge "Big Burger" for the best hamburger in town. One burger is large enough for 2 people. Happy hour is popular with the locals, so get there early for a seat at the bar, high top table or cozy booth. The dining areas include a wonderful patio. The food, service and atmosphere are exceptional.

Four of us really enjoyed dinner on Tuesday evening. There was a good atmosphere but we could enjoy our conversation. The food was enjoyed by us all from the fillet steak to the butter milk fried chicken via rainbow trout and blackened red fish. The wood fire cooking does add to the flavour of certain dishes. Worth a return visit

This is a bit off of the main walking route through the old town & shopping area but worth the hike. We managed to arrive in time to take advantage of their Happy Hour food & drink specials. The restaurant & patio were at capacity but we lingered around until we were able to snag a high top in the... More

My husband and I are new to the Scottsdale area. We decided to go to the Roaring Fork for "happy hour". What a wonderful treat. Service was excellent and the appetizers offered were fantastic. I would recommend that you get there at 4:00 when happy hour starts as the establishment fills up quickly. Don't miss this spot. If you are... More
