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.

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.

I like fresh vegetables and can tell instantly if something has been frozen. These were fresh. They came as a side to a nicely made Reuben sandwich. If you've read any of my reviews you know this is a staple when dining out. The sandwich had a decent amount of corned beef, sauerkraut, dressing and I added some mustard. On... More

The varied menu with an emphasis on salads is the highlight at this pleasant restaurant in a comfortable suburban setting. While I was only there for lunch and had just a salad and iced tea, I'm sure that the rest of the offerings are first class, all at a reasonable price.

We decided to eat here since we've been to the Birkdale location several times. The crowd was very energetic and the food was just as good. Will return for another visit.

The staff and service are excellent! The food is amazing from appetizers to desserts. The best she-crab soup ever! Wonderful menu varieties from burgers to seafood, pasta and delicious steaks. Desserts are yummy and made fresh daily. The managers and owners are fantastic and so personable.

By far Red Rocks has the best crab cakes for the money. They bring out 2 huge cakes per entree with sides. The cakes are mostly crabmeat and they are not greasy at all! They are delicious. Save room for dessert though! I suggest the coconut cake or chocolate cake..mmmmmm
