This quaint little restaurant is attached to a bowling alley! Don't let that fool you, or scare you away! This is the local's choice for obvious reasons. The "pub style" food is fresh and very good. The staff is over the top friendly and service is excellent. Try the crab cakes, they are out of the ordinary and delicious. Reasonable... More

Crab cake was raw, chips were soggy, so-so portions. Not a lot to choose from in Sparta, so it might have been the best in town for all we knew.

Great food, service was good, easy to find attached to a bowling alley which sounds a little sketchy but it really was a great little place to eat! Soup was potato and bacon and was delicious. Homemade bread for a BLT. Great little spot after a hike to have a meal.

The food was recommended, and was much better than people could describe! The crab sandwich as pure crab, no filler, and delicious. The chicken wings were crisp and tasty, and the BBQ sauce we chose (a mix of BBQ with hot, sweet and tangy) was awesome. My husband had a Carolina burger, which was huge and tasty with chili and...

If you care about the food you consume, then River Rock will satisfy your inner need. Since the beef is Grass Fed, it is a very healthy choice. We have eaten here many many times since the opening and have not been dismayed once. Service is also wonderful. Try the Chili burger and top it off w/ the Chocolate dessert.
