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.

Very Nice !!

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).

I've been here several times when in Charlotte to visit friends. It is near where they live and it's so great that this place is convenient because it is so good. The menu is very extensive with both meat, seafood, lots of salads and some of the best desserts I've eaten in a long time. Their carrot cake is right... More

The food was fabulous and there was way more than just Thanksgiving type menu items; roast beef, salmon and of course chicken.

I've read a few of the reviews and would not dispute any of them. We live near here and get takeout all the time but we know what we like and what is good and that helps to ensure a positive experience. Mostly, we get salads. My wife gets the baby field green with a protein and I like the... More

We ate on a Thursday night, not too crowded. We did get in and was seated outdoors. Which is nice. Our waitress was extremely nice, but forgot to bring out my soup before the meal. They did comp us on that (she only brought it finally with the food because I reminded her). The food was very pretty on the... More
