The restaurant is very nice with cloth roof and fireplace and nice view. Could not eat outside due to wind. The appetizer we had was the three onion soup that was delicious. Had the jambalaya and it was kind of boring. Waiter seemed a bit indifferent but the rest of the staff was excellent. Would recommend going but choose different... More

We have eaten at The Rock many times. The food is usually excellent though th beef kabobs i had last night were very tough. We have always enjoyed the ribs, the trout, the burgers and a number of other dishes. The setting is delightful with the big fireplace and the beautiful garden I would recommend this restaurant.

The Rock is a little out of town but well worth the extra mile. Great setting, nice covered outdoor patio, inside by the fire on cool nights is very romantic. Thursday is all you can eat ribs, very tasty.

Next to the hotel, very attractiveness setting, dining room set up was nicely spaced , not crowded, outside sitting was available, heaters were provided, the seats were very comfortable. The menu offerings reflected the local and international flavor. Our host was very generous and very engaging. The wine flowed and the deserts outstanding.

We dined on a Thursday night which was all you eat BBQ along with there regular menu. We chose the BBQ. The ribs were very tender and tasty, the lonely negative would be they were dripping in sauce. The same with a salad we shared, too over-dressed but plentiful and good. The ambience is very good with outside dining next... More
