Worth another trip sometime.

My parents live in the Kingston area, and it was my dad's birthday. He requested that we take him to the Rolling Rock for lunch as my parents stop in occasionally. I don't know if this location has affiliation to the original Rolling Rock cafe that years ago (late 80's early 90's) used to exist... read more

When it was there it was very good, located in the Hudson Valley Mall. It's strange, they packed up in the middle of the night. Employees came to work to find it shut. Another place, Kingston Yards, did the exact same thing; also the same mall. Now the just has a food court. Find a better place to dine.

According to the lady at the information booth in the mall where Rolling Rock resides, the restaurant just closed it's doors with no word to anyone including the employees who showed up for work. Not even sure who owns the restaurant.

Three teenagers with simple appetites--my son ordered penne a la vodka and meatballs. He's 13 and loves meatballs but he literally spit them out they were so awful! My two daughters don't eat meat and ordered plain pasta with butter and cheese--which arrived with meatballs! My salad was OK and my husbands burger was passable. The waiter was apologetic and...

My granddaughter ordered a steak dinner & I ordered house salad. We started with onion soup - warm not hot - almost all cheese/no soup. My salad was served immediately - after 30 minutes her steak arrived - one knife cut - almost raw and bleeding - spent 15 minutes trying to get someone's attention - then another 30 minutes... More

Once delivered our food never came back to check on us. Also brought all the food my son ordered a pizza waiter said he would bring him... More
