The Original Red Rocks is in the Foxcroft area of Charlotte at the Strawberry Hill Shopping Center, and the newer unit, opened in 2003 is at Birkdale Village in Huntersville, NC. We offer a very diverse menu of appetizers, salads, pasta, steaks, seafood, chicken, and sandwiches. Our wine and dessert offerings are world class. We are unique in that we have something for everyone. No one is excluded due to price or category of food. At Red Rocks you can choose to “eat” or “dine.” Our mission is to professionally and efficiently operate a clean, upscale, restaurant that consistently offers great food and beverage at a reasonable cost. We invite you to visit Red Rocks Café for a great experience.

Had dinner while visiting Charlotte. What a wonderful experience. A little hard to find as it is tucked into a spot at a small mall. When you enter the restaurant you immediately know that this is a great place. The atmosphere is very upscale and trendy. The biggest problem is trying to figure out which one of the wonderful items on the menu to choose. I had one of the specials. The swordfish was so tender and delicious and my husband had the Cajan salmon. We each argued that our meal was the best, they were both just wonderful. Our server was as sweet as could be and the service was prompt and efficient. As a matter of fact, all the staff was lovely and the manager, Dante, was stopping at tables to speak with patrons. Everything that we ate was perfectly cooked and we will go back each and every time we visit Charlotte.

The atmosphere was nice and the food was great. We had a girls night out there on a Friday night and got excellent service.

We are always pleased with the superior service at Red Rocks Cafe at all of the locations we have visited including Birkdale in Huntersville. They are on top of everything and the food is outstanding.

I have to confess buffets are not my favorite form of eating out after "too many cruise ships". Well two things. This is Charlotte, NC and the people here are easy going, friendly and "don't push their way in".

The best part is the food. It was excellent. Prime Rib (not the steam ship rump you usually get most places) cooked perfectly medium towards medium rare, perfectly seasoned. Fresh salads to choose from. A variety of really good vegtables from Green Bean Caserole, cheesey mac, carrots that still had some crispness but a sweet flavor, rice pilaf the requisite garlic mashed potatoes but also nicely fried okra. The desert selection was wide and good. My wife said the carrot cake was the best she ever had.

Service was attentive for some 600 people the manager said they fed. The price was great. Just $25.

We've eaten here before and will be back for a liesurely dinner. The dining room is comfortable and relaxing.

You will enjoy it!

My wife and I haven't had a chance to enjoy red rocks in a few years, so when we decided to head into the big city to catch Wicked we had to stop in for dinner. One small problem, traffic threatened to kill our previous show dinner plans. Our served was super attentive to our plight and offered up fast menu selection that she could push through the kitchen. Sure enough food was great, service was fast and friendly. Thanks again for the great food! Oh, you have to try the Pittsburgh salad...it has fries and London Broil!
