Quaint restaurant located in a cozy lodge.

I have been here many times and have good meals here. Its a ma and pa place in a log cabin. Great stop after a ski trip at Wolf Creek. The steaks are very good…I also like the trout. Its not a big restaurant so table are limited. This is a staple in South Fork.

I had the catfish, which was quite good - it had a crisp cornmeal coating and the fish was moist and flaky. But it was served with mediocre french fries, a small dish of unadorned canned green beans, and a slice of supermarket french bread with margarine and garlic salt on it. There was a first course option of chicken... More

Expensive - food only average. Used to eat there years ago and was much better. Filet and pork chops just average. Need to do away with packets of butter and sour cream. Upscale restaurants don't do this.

We went here after golf. The service was incredibly slow but the waitress was very cordial. The food was very good which was a surprise. The only down side was that sour cream, cocktail sauce etc. was all served in individual containers, not in bowls. It was good that there was no one in the restaurant since there was only... More

We've been coming to Rock Away for many, many years and through several owners. It was good, than not so much so, and now it is good again!!!! Located in a log cabin type building, very unique. We went for my birthday with another couple and we were all very happy with our dinners. The guys got the Prime Rib... More

This place has a very cozy feeling and has several dining rooms. The four of us arrived at around 7:30 pm on a Saturday night and it was very crowded. We had to wait for about 20 minutes to be seated in the very nice waiting area. When seated, I ordered the big salad with salmon. The salmon was probably... More

My husband and I both ordered the 18-20oz ribeye. His was tender, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. I had asked if they could do a smaller ribeye and was told no. So I was rather surprised that mine was much smaller than his, maybe 12 oz. It was cooked as I had asked, good flavor, but a little tough. The... More

This place has been around for many years. The first time I tried it was in 2000 and found it to be expensive and I couldn't eat the food. The last time I tried it was August 2013. The burger was pretty good, but I felt their food was still very expensive for what you get.
