Good and reasonable

We went here on he last night given its convenience. We started with the queso and I had the tenderloin salad. For $14 I felt like I got around 4-5 oz of meat so I felt that was a pretty good price.

My husband and I have eaten at the Roarong Fork many times. The food is always delicious, and the service impeccable. Also, it is close to The Paramount Theatre!!

I asked a random woman on the street for a lunch recommendation and she said the Roaring Fork was a good choice. I ordered the "Half A**" Burger that I was only able to eat half of. I can't even think of how big the "Big A**" Burger is. I really liked the peppered bacon on the burger. The fries... More

This hotel restaurant is located in the heart of exciting Austin, and we loved it! The green chili mac & cheese app was a revelation. It's a fancyish place but they also have a Big A** burger on the menu, and it was excellent, served with poblano peppers, cheese, chipotle aioli and more, plus fries. It was truly big-a** and...

Visited on a Tuesday night so the crowd was quite small. Wait staff was very attentive and made excellent suggestions. Went with the "big a$$ burger" (yes that is what its called) and it is indeed that! Cooked exactly to my tastes and was awesome. Drinks were cold and mixed perfectly.

Sat by the fireplace with my wife last week. Had a burger and mushrooms, wine, and a vodka tonic. Tasty burger, excellent mushrooms (and large serving). Efficient service. Vodka tonic served in tumbler, odd; and a bit weak.

We had tickets for an event at the Long Center and had wanted to try this restaurant for quite a while. It was a Thursday evening so even with reservations I think anyone could get a table. The bar was fairly full at 6 PM - nice after work place. We were seated in the dining room and Summer was... More

My sister and I visited Roaring Fork for dinner during a recent visit to Austin for tourism. We selected it for its proximity to our hotel as well as its menu. I was very happy with my meal, but everything my sister wanted was unavailable. The bartender had not properly stocked the bar so their selection of cold beer was... More

Our group of 10 was delighted by the food and service during a dinner in the private dining room. Josh had been extremely communicative and accommodating in setting up the logistics for food and wine choices, and our waitress was terrific. The restaurant was much more flexible than many when it comes to contract terms and flexibility in menu and... More
