“Our go to restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We usually make reservations at Roaring Fork for any event like our anniversary or my birthday. The special care they take when it's a special date is worth it. They usually give a free dessert for the event and theirs are delicious.

“Good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Food and service was above average. Nothing to rave about. The only negative is if you are driving, it is on the ground floor of an office building, the entrance from the street is somewhat confusing and all the parking in front of the restaurant is "no parking" although there are loads of empty spaces at dinner time.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

I love the food and atmosphere at the Roaring Forks. It is in a great location. Right by Fashion Square Mall, so you can shop til you drop and dine until your fine.

“Happy hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

This is the best happy hour in Scottsdale. Arrive early or there will not be a place to sit. Order the fish tacos or the Big Burger. The service is excellent. I have enjoyed the Roaring Fork for many years.

“The big A Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Although McGrath is no longer the Chef and owner they still have an outstanding happy hour. Especially the BigA** Bueger. a stacked 3/4 LB burger with fries. I am a big eater, and I have to take 1.2 of it home

There are a number of other good items on the happy hour list.
The only problem is the place is crowded, and it may be too hot to eat outside.
