Frustrating Night Out

We made a reservation for 7pm. We didn't get our appetizers for 1.5 hours and waited 2 hours for our main course. Our server didn't even punch in our main course until an hour after we had ordered. There is no drink menu and our server had no knowledge about their minimal wine selection which added... read more

We waited 1.5 hous for our food. The Pad Thai was great, but my Cesar Salad was a great disappointment: three leaves of salad, uncut in a bowl.. I wouldn't eat there again...

$7.95 for a burger, choice of side and a pint?! Best deal in town. Apparently the Rockwater has this deal every Tuesday, we will be back again! Great riverside patio, although it was a little chilly this time of year. The server was knowledgable about the menu and suggested things to do around town. Great price, great food!

We had a great meal here and the service was great as well. Very friendly and gave us some information about going up to Kicking Horse. Patio is nice with a nice view. Would definitely go there again if visiting Golden!

I would definitely come back here some night for a drink on the back patio - we had a great view, excellent service and overall a good experience. The food is pretty good, we shared the halibut and chips, which was tasty but very small, the mac and cheese sticks, which were decent, and the tuna tartar, which was okay... More

Ate on the sidewalk patio at dusk and mosquitoes were out in droves by the time our food came. Food was very good and our server was polite and very attentive but really should have offered to move us inside when it became obvious we were under attack.

We sat on the patio in the early afternoon and had some very good food. It's a relaxing spot by the river. Service was a little slow but the servers were very friendly.

Food was high quality, kids menu as well as adult menu. Attention to detail with food - good! Service was attentive from waitress, but food took a while to come. Nice setting near river. Popular with visitors and locals. Worth a try.

New rooftop patio very nice. Steak sandwich arrived a little on the cold side but the flavour overruled that fact. Girlfriend had the Halibut and she was very pleased with it.
