Awesome sandwiches, great location

Our party of 4 had 4 different sandwiches, each better than the next. My favorite was the Montreal smoked meat Reuben. YUM! Great beer selection, too. You can't beat sitting outside on their patio by the river. They have a second floor deck as well, for outdoor dining. Do not skip the Poutine... read more

The patios were beautiful, but we were too cold and sat at a table right next to a window that still made it feel like we were on the patio. We snuck in, but staff found us right away and took our order quickly before the kitchen closed. When the mosquitos got bothersome, staff closed the door for us. We... More

On a recent trip to Golden, we were attracted to the Rockwater as they had two patios overlooking the river and it was a gorgeous day. I checked out the selection of draft beer and was excited to try some new brews. Our group of four settled upstairs which was about half full on a Saturday evening. The menu had... More

The atmosphere at Rockwater is awesome! The back patio is right next to the river. They also have an upstairs patio. The menu has something for everyone. They also have a great craft beer selection and some good looking cocktails. It appears they have live music some nights as well. This has quickly become my favourite Golden restaurant.

The food was great, can enjoy a meal outside or inside. Its nice anytime of the year, winter you can be warm and comfy inside and then in the summer you can be outside and enjoy the weather. The food was very good. I love the Mac and Cheese!

Visited on the 29th May, and served by Suzie. Our meals of Calamari, Bistro Burger, Fish and Chips and beers were all very good. We especially enjoyed being able to sit out in the sunshine in the outdoor area next to the river. Suzie (also from Australia) was super friendly (offering water for our dog who was on the other...

We popped into this special place to see if we could watch some womens world cup. The staff were very accommodating. The patio has a white-water river flowing past and the mountains surround. The food is excellent, and so are the staff. Top joint.

Thanks Johanne for taking time to review our restaurant/pub. We love our patio season, and are glad you did too! Food, drink, and service quality are very important to us, and we are happy to hear we delivered. And thank for the first review on our new cocktail list! More
