The Original Red Rocks is in the Foxcroft area of Charlotte at the Strawberry Hill Shopping Center, and the newer unit, opened in 2003 is at Birkdale Village in Huntersville, NC. We offer a very diverse menu of appetizers, salads, pasta, steaks, seafood, chicken, and sandwiches. Our wine and dessert offerings are world class. We are unique in that we have something for everyone. No one is excluded due to price or category of food. At Red Rocks you can choose to “eat” or “dine.” Our mission is to professionally and efficiently operate a clean, upscale, restaurant that consistently offers great food and beverage at a reasonable cost.

Good salad with a nice staff.

Stopped by here just to get a quick bite. I had not heard anything about the place and at first wasn't sure what it was going for, its dark and seems nice like almost a date spot. But then i spotted a guy at the bar wearing a tank top and flip flops so i guess its a whatever type... read more

Four of us dined at Red Rocks Café on 5/16/15. We had talked about dining at Red Rocks for years and finally made a reservation. We sat outside on a perfect weather evening. The staff were wonderful. We started with the crab dip appetizer which was delicious and enough for the four of us . Our meals were terrific and... More

This was our first time dining at Red Rocks Cafe. We took my Dad here for dinner for his birthday. It was an overall excellent experience - delicious food (salads, steaks, and veg options), outstanding and friendly service (thanks Stacy and Dante!), and a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. The desserts were amazing, but are huge...our party of four shared one slice... More

The people who work and run Red Rocks are first class. Having a large group for such an incredible birthday party isn't always easy for staff. But they never missed a beat. It was a memorable day and whoever made the decision to have the party at this spot was truly a treat for all who attended. I will be... More

A first for us. The atmosphere was above the normal. Both open and secluded areas. The food was also good, the service even better. Will visit again.

Cocktails were variable as dirty martinis were very good, but old fashioned was lacking, but not in fruit. Appetizers were for the most part very good. There was an off piece of calamari in the midst of strips only. Don't know what they do with the tentacles? Dinners were enjoyed by all and ample. Good variety available on the menu.... More

You can always count on friendly service, great menu choices and large portions. They are always very busy, so make a reservation. They are usually honored within 5 minutes of time. Blackened seafood salad is terrific. Large and plenty of fish. Prices are most reasonable. Good choice.

I would contact Red Rocks in a different manner if an Email was available. I wanted to let them know about our experience last night which was far from stellar. I called at 5:15 to request a 6:00 reservation and asked for a booth, I was told if one was available. When we arrived we asked for a booth and... More

They have a good menu, with a nod to NASCAR - many of the entrees are named after prominent race figures. They have, in our opinion, the best crab cakes in Charlotte! The restaurant itself is inviting, and the service is very good (and consistent).
