The place is beautiful. Good food. Good service. And the bar atmosphere was nice. Good music. First time we went, we sat riverside which was sweet! They also have rooftop seating. Will return.

I just had the best quinoa salad at Rockwater on the Patio. The patio was nice by the river. Great service and perfect flavours.

I've been coming to the Rockwater since 2014. I've eaten there over 100 times. The food is high quality and prepared with care. From the kitchen staff to the serving staff the service is top rated. They support local and traveling music and provide a great place to let loose. If you are passing through Golden BC make sure to... More

We stopped over here accidentally- thought we were at another place until we had sat down and realised we were in the wrong place and my husband was just too tired after driving to go somewhere else. The drink selection was limited and the menu very sparse- server was friendly - we asked about the platter she didn't really want... More

Drove into Golden for a quick lunch and chose Rockwater for the outside patio. View across the river was nice and you were literally next to the wooden bridge across the river. Food was average but service was friendly. Burger was especially good!!

Good, basic food in a restaurant with a great view. Prices are reasonable. Service was so-so, but it was a busy night so maybe understaffed.

This restaurant is nicely decorated with a great view of the Kicking Horse river in Golden BC. We ate lunch on the patio which was very inviting. Lots of space. The food was terrific, a good variety to choose from and very fresh tasting and artfully displayed. You might think it's a tad pricey for lunch but honestly, I don't... More

Awesome patio right on the river, and every time I've popped in there's been wicked live music, our bartender Pat was super friendly... over all real real good experience. The chicken wings are very tasty, which is something I'm always looking out for... i've had most salads, burgers, all very very good. Definitely swing in if you're visiting or just... More

Amazing patio with a spectacular view of the Kicking Horse River. Some of the patio tables have fire pits on them which can be lit in the evening - what could be better! Tried this restaurant for lunch on the patio. They have a great selection of drinks and the Charcuterie board was delish! We loved this place so much... More

Awesome patio with great view of raging river and a lively pub with nice servers. No working internet though! Needed to jump on for emails and would not load up on many attempts so gave up trying. Super pricey menu!, so did not order food. Even the special as a sandwich deal was $16! How is that savings???
