We enjoyed an evening with friends. The waiter was attentive, the menu robust, and the selections we made very satisfying. A little noisy but a good choice for a good meal.

My parents were visiting from MI last week, and we took them to Red Rocks for lunch. The food was good, and we didn't have to wait long. I'm not eager to return because of our server. She was extremely rude from the time she approached our table to the end of the meal. I ordered straight from the menu,... More

We enjoy Red Rocks, & it's one of our go-to places. The lobster bisque is super spectacular. Having originated in Pittsburgh, we LOVE the Pittsburgh salad that has steak and French fries. the wait staff is always friendly and helpful. Desserts are unbelievable! I will say that the prices have been going up. That's my only negative.

We hosted a rehearsal dinner for around 50 people in their private room which handles up to around 60 people. I thought their prices were very reasonable. The staff were all friendly and very accommodating. The events coordinator was very helpful in making sure the room was set up exactly as we wanted. We had great reviews from all our... More

Can't say enough good things about Red Rocks - Providence Rd. The staff is fabulous, the food is always excellent, and the location/ambiance is really inviting. The nice thing about this place is that it's great for grabbing a burger/salad with a friend or perfect as a special place for a family celebration. Nice, courtyard patio for outdoor dining.

Red Rocks is a good restaurant. I like that it's not a chain. The offer a varied menu, including sandwiches, pasta dishes, steaks, and interesting salads. The service is always good. My biggest complaint about Red Rocks is that they don't have a lunch menu, so if you go for lunch, be prepared to pay dinner prices.

Service was great. We had a large party of 15. server was courteous and well organized. Food came out promptly. I can only rate food base on my entrée of the filet medallions with Portobello mushrooms, crispy fried onion rings, garlic mashed. It was ok. One beef medallion was pull apart tender but not the other one. No flavor to... More

Needless to say by the heading, I love the crab cakes. They are massive!! They are not at all greasy which is important to me. If you are not too full stay for dessert. The cakes are amazing!!

Friends took us to Red Rocks Cafe. None of us had been there before, so we were trusting in Trip Advisor reviews. What a nice surprise! Every dinner was better than good. Well prepared, beautifully presented and plenty to eat. We are taking neighbors back this Sunday. Can't wait to introduce them to this gem in south Charlotte.

Thank Laurence J
