This place has as an amazing atmosphere. ALEXA greeted us right away and was very pleasant and super fun to chat with. Her service is one of a kind. We enjoyed local (area) craft beer or beers, and also enjoyed a burger and fries (Rockwater...Burger) for a mere 12 bucks. This was by far the best pub / lounge food we have have in the area. (Especially one said pub on the hiway) where our beer was warm and food un fit for human consumption. (Over and under cooked) Highly recommend. 5 stars all around.More

We came here with a local friend from Golden and WOW. Our server was friendly and attentive, the food was INSANE - we had the Reuban, Burger and Club Sandwiches. The fries were hand cut and sooo good as well. I had a couple Grapefruit...Mules to drink that were outstanding. Seriously would recommend this HIGHLY to anyone visiting Golden.More

We quit coming here because of the menu, not much to pick from and pricy. Now they changed the menu. We loved it. Way more to choice from, good prices and good portions. Drinks were cold. Our waiter was excellent. I had the Reuben and...was excellent. Best fries in town. Awesome view with river and mountains.More

My husband and I stopped in Golden after a two hour delay in the pass. We were tired and hunngry and after a short tour into Golden, decided against the craft beer place down the street and for the Rockwater Grill and Bar. My husband...had the steak sandwich and I opted for the salmon pasta special reccommendex by our very pleasant and attentive server. WOW! we were so pleasantly surprised, or should I say blown away! Everything was excellent. When we eat out, we are rarely impressed. I have to tell you that this was absolutely fantastic! We wont hesitate ro stop again! A wonderful experience!More

Ordered drinks to start, beer was good however cocktail was not. The yam burger tasted like it had been fried in fish oil and the nachos were stale and cold. Service was mediocre.

Great food and scenery! We were lucky enough to get a seat on the upper patio. The wait staff was very friendly and sweet and gave us little recommendations of things to do while we were in town. Margaritas and whiskey sours were fantastic! I...had the Ahi Tuna Burger and it was phenomenal! So tasty! Beautiful location perfect for a date night.More

We love this place! They have great service, excellent food and a wicked rooftop patio with amazing views. We visited them last August and again this year and if anything they got better. I understand that they have live music and such a few nights...a week, but due to Covid that is temporarily on-hold, but we heard great things about these events. This has and will continue to be a definite go-to for us anytime we are in Golden!More

We visited the Rockwater on New Year’s Day as we were in town visiting for a few days. Service was great and really efficient. We were greeted immediately which is always a bonus for me We were a party of 5 including 2 kids. The...kids were extremely happy with the free pool table that they could use. We ordered 4lbs of chicken wings, poutine, Caesar salad and burger with fries. Everyone was extremely happy with their food, it was really good! We visited the day after but just for a quick drink and my son was extremely happy with his fancy chocolate milk with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. I would definitely recommend a visit if you’re ever in town and looking a for a great place to eat.More

Yes, that’s the highlight here – the yam sandwich. I had the steak sandwich was open-face, not hot and pretty tasteless. One great meal, one not so. Inside is a bit more bar than restaurant, get a table out back on patio [by river]. Service...off.More
