Description: Red Rocks Café is a locally owned and operated, unique American Restaurant. We have operated in the greater Charlotte, NC area since 1992. We currently operate two units. 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. We invite you to visit Red Rocks Café for a great experience.

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

Have eaten here several times with mixed success. Tried it again and actually enjoyed the experience. It was Sunday night and not very many customers. The service was good as was the food. Prices are mixed but we sought out lesser expensive dishes and were very happy with them. Will try again and hopefully will continue to like as it... More

My fiancé and I attended this restaurant on a busy Friday evening during Restaurant Week. We were skeptical of making plans for a Friday, knowing most restaurants were jam-packed full of patrons. Luckily enough, this restaurant, situated in a very nice part of Charlotte, was "up for the challenge," and both pleasant and attentive during our dining experience. For my... More

This restaurant is near my house and very friendly and open to our 5 month old so I can't knock it. The food is good -- nice burger, entree salads and great salmon. The desserts are yummy (they don't make them though). Great for a drink or quick meal. Nice patio out back. For some reason, it does attract a... More

Spinach ravioli with chicken and feta was really good. Porterhouse pork chop was great as well. The Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc was a great pairing to the spinach ravioli. The service was good but noticed that their shirts were dirty and needed to be pressed. For the prices charged, and the caliber of restaurant, the servers should be neat and... More

We just ate here for restaurant week and I ordered the filet medallions. The sauce was gross. It tasted like flour and my husbands tuna was flavorless. The server Sam was very sweet!

Excellent menu, food, and service. This was not my first visit to a Red Rocks Restaurant, and that is the point, I visit because I can count on the excellent quality of my experience.
