“Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed our meal at the River Rock. We ate on the pub side which shares the menu with the steakhouse which is a family restaurant. Our server was new and a bit unsure of the menu items, but she more than made up for it with her enthusiasm, attentiveness and great disposition. The pub has a partial view of the river and the terrain surrounding Quesnel which made for pleaseant surroundings. The decor is a bit tired but I've certainly seen worse. The food was delivered promptly after ordering and the staff seemed sincerely interested if we were enjoying our meal. The Indian dishes were particularly good, if a bit spicey for our taste. The portions were generous and the price was fair. We'll definitely be back.

“Poorly Ran Buisness”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

The food is the only good thing about this restaurant, and even that was mediocre. The server(older woman, about 40), was rude and not friendly at all .I overheard her talking about her co-workers in a very rude and unprofessional manner. She was so condescending towards the newer employee, who must have only been 19. Not something that i want to hear or see while trying to enjoy my dinner. Our food took over an hour to come out but the owner would not do anything to refund us or discount us, despite the fact our appetizers came out after our entree! The food did taste good, compliments to the chef but i don't think i will go back.

A few weeks before this incident we came in for some drinks on a Thursday night at around 10:00 pm to find that they were closed! Even though the sign says they are open until midnight. This has happened to us and others before, maybe they should change their hours if they can't commit to being open.

“Fabulous Wedding Reception”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We recently were married in Barkerville and held our reception at the River Rock. The management was great to work with, and made sure that every little detail was perfect for our big day. At our dinner, we served Poached Salmon, Filet Mignon, and Chicken Cordon Bleu. Every single plate was delicious, and our guests loved the food! They also did a custom appy spread for cocktail hour. The service for the dinner was very prompt, and our server did not hesitate to answer any requests (some of them bizarre!). I was thrilled with the level of service we got, and would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone hosting an event in Northern BC. Fantastic!

On a side note, I have been here to dine several times, and love the pub menu and the location. Food is consistently great.
