Had the chicken and waffles and duck poutine, both were fantastic. Some of the best buttermilk fried chicken I have ever had, highly recommend!

Went for supper after a day of skiing. Good was average at best. I had the steak sandwich and my wife had the quinoa salad. Both were ok but certainly nothing to rave about. The highlight of the meal was the bartender/server who was very friendly and helpful.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Place was beautiful with a nice atmosphere. Was practically empty though. Got the Caesar salad with chicken and it was very small and way too salty.

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!!

Thank Kebuh
