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.

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 to the frustration. When... More

Dear madysun16 Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We apologies for your frustrating experience with us. As you may have noticed, we were extremely busy the night that you had a reservation with us.

$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!
