We had drinks and dinner here with a friend before we went to a show next door.
My friend and I split the half chicken. It came with green beans and a stuffing. All were excellent and very tasty. My husband had the burger. WOW, what a burger. It was huge with several different toppings. He ordered it medium rare, which came out perfect.
The next time we are in the neighborhood I would not be surprised if we go here again.

My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at the Roaring Fork in Austin, TX. We were celebrating our 45th Wedding Anniversary and wanted to dine somewhere special. With the help of TripAdvisor we found this wonderful Restaurant in downtown Austin! The service was excellent, the atmosphere was terrific, and the food was superb! The staff went out of the way to make this a special evening. I highly recommend this fine restaurant to any one looking for that "Special" evening!

Went with a friend for a casual lunch. The waiter was dead on with his recommendations, and everything was excellent. During lunch they can be a little crowded, but that's to be expected, as it's very close to the Capitol. Highly recommend this for business lunches or couples. Not for children.

Having viewed the amazing bats swarming over the Colorado River at dusk, having walked the length of Congress Street from the river toward our car, and feeling a bit peckish, my wife and I peered into the main dining room of Roaring Fork Restaurant in Austin, Texas. The name sounded "inexpensive," but the tablecloths and low-lit stone fireplace looked "very expensive" to me. Not knowing whether we would get back to Austin, we ventured in and were met and served by very friendly wait staff. We decided to share one steak dinner,one salmon dinner, and an order of asparagus. Everything was cooked to perfection, the presentation was impeccable, and the portions were just right. The wine glasses were amply filled, and the apertifs were superb. Nothing could have been better, and we went back to our modest motel completely satisfied by our delightful evening in Austin.
