We ate here one evening and had to wait a bit for a table for two, but less time than estimated. There was live music although we ended up outside on patio. We had drinks, appetizer (Cajun shrimp) and main entrees. I usually have gluten...More

Had a great dinner and experience here. Servers were all nice and attentive. Good happy hour specials. Priced reasonably and has a nice outside patio. Nothing fancy, but good people. Lots of locals eat and drink here. I would go back.

Had dinner for three. No wait, slow service but overall very solid dinner. We had a variety of items and all were average to above average. The chicken sandwich is safe and the red potatoes are a strong side dish to go with it. Not...More

There were 9 of us, including children ages 10-17. They don't take reservations, but we only had about a 20 minute wait to be seated. There was something on the menu for everyone in our group. the food was good and the service was excellent.

Our family enjoyed a delicious meal of pizza, chicken sandwich and vegetable medley warm bowl. We were promptly seated on a holiday night. Very attentive waitress.

Restaurant is slightly off the main strip which meant it wasn't super crowded like some of the other places; when other places had a 2 hour wait on a Sunday afternoon, this place was relatively empty which was worrisome thinking that the food wasn't great....More

Although we have eaten at the Rock Inn many, many times, I have never seen a group of 20 accommodated. You see, the Rock Inn is basically one very large room and an outdoor patio. The largest group I've seen is probably... More

Description
Open 7 days a week at 4pm Sunday Mornings we are serving Brunch from 10am to 2pm Built in 1937as a dance hall for the Big Band Era, The Rock continues to be a lively gathering place with local flair. In the winter, our two wood-burning stoves keep the room toasty for folks stopping in for a beer or a bite after playing in Rocky Mountain National Park. During the summer season we enjoy stunning continental divide views from our outdoor dining patio. Our menu is an ever evolving blend of hand-crafted, hearty comfort food with a health and planet conscious twist. We aim to fill you up with goodness so you can get back to enjoying the mountains again tomorrow. We feature Certified Angus Beef, All-Natural Colorado chicken, fresh salads, whole grains, organic teas and coffees, local beers, sustainably produced wines, and a full bar. On Many Fridays after dinner, we set-up one of many original Colorado bands on our 76 year old stage, clear the dance floor and boogie all night. Some of the bands playing these days include Chain Station, James and the Devil, Old Town Pickers, The Sweet Lillies, Stringboard Theory, Cadillac Grip Funk, KC Groves, and many more. During the summer time, acoustic music acts play most other nights of the week, sunday nights are a mellower feeling as we host acoustic Colorado songwriters during dinner. You might catch Jon Pickett, Alex Thoele, Sarah Caton, Jay Roemer, Billy Shaddox, Jay Stott, or Terry Kishiyama and Ash Ganley. We also offer a great open bluegrass pick on Thursday nights lead by a few talented local musicians, either joining in on the pick or just sitting back and enjoying the bluegrass, tuesdays are a funny night of music. We look forward to having you join us. Reservations are not accepted, however if you want to give us a call, when you are on your way we will be happy to get a table ready for you or put you on the list. During the off-season there is rarely a wait. In July, August, and September it is best to get here before 6.
