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.

Great for office parties.

Group of about 20 seated quickly as we arrived; served quickly and everyone enjoyed the meal. Simple side salad and prime filet (of many varieties) worked great for me!

First, you have to "like them" on facebook to even use wifi - have never seen that before - medium rare to me is rare to them - also, provolone cheese on steak sandwich was rancid - had to take it off - hostess informed me that i had to consult the server about bringing in my own unopened caffeine...

I ordered chicken parmesan, buddy ordered pork chop, other buddy ordered seerd tuna. Tuna was good, chicken parmesan was average, chop was average. There was a large variety on the menu though. Good service. Overall, nothing outstanding.

This is my second visit to Red Rocks Cafe, but my husband's first visit. We made our reservation for Christmas Eve dinner, but the experience was far from what I expected. I truly HATE having to give a bad review, but this visit unfortunately calls for just that. We were asked if we wanted to sit on the patio, but... More

A very complete menu that has something for everyone even the kids. I have had the salmon here twice, prepared differently each time. Both done just right, not over done. The gumbolaya was complex with all the right spices. Hamburgers were made to order and came out as specified. Four entrees,two kids meals, two appetizers and one giant piece of... More

The bar server Emily was very helpful with the menu. She introduced us to the manager who talked about food quality and recipes he's playing with. He was engaging and terribly polite. Both recommended the crab cakes and salmon dishes. Also the chopped salad. Dan had the special (offered at New Years) pistachio crusted salmon with a lemon blueberry sauce... More

The scallops were amazing. I couldn't imagine a better meal. It is a little pricy but the service is impeccable.

I have to admit, I wouldn't have chosen Red Rocks Cafe SouthPark location as one of my first choices when selecting a restaurant, but I've changed my mind after my first experience there! Is it one of the more hip and trendy places in Charlotte? No. However, does it have great service, a varied menu with delicious food and a... More
