Terrible customer service, rude employee specifically the bartender working the forth on the second floor. He does not belong in a customer service setting.

Came here after a hike at Red Rocks, amazing service, awesome location (rooftop with mountain views), friendly and attentive service and the food was delicious. Couldn't imagine a better spot for a post hike beer. Do yourself a favor and put this on your to...do list!More

Great outdoor dining with heaters and great views! Good vibe! Enjoyed a Cabernet and some Italian Food after climbing up the Red Rock Amphitheater. Wish I had known about dinosaur tracks and dogs in this town! We will be back! And dine here again!

If you are looking for a nice stop after touring Red Rocks - STOP HERE! Delicious food and a great beer selection. We tried the garlic bread with pepperoni and jalapenos and the bread was the perfect crunch consistency on the outside with a soft,...warm inside. Delicious! Awesome patio setup and our server Cody was amazing. He had great suggestions and made 2 flights for us to sample the various beers. Highly recommend the calzone, 1 would feed 2 people.More

The patio area is nicely spaced with good views and soft lighting. Food was pretty good. Beer selection was excellent. Service was not particularly memorable one way or another. Good place for casual drinks when weather is nice.

This was my first time ever to Morrison! We decided to grab a drink and dinner at The Roof Top Tavern and were pleasantly surprised to find a unique Gem!!! The outdoor seating overlooking the downtown area was amazing with phenomenal views of the mountain...surrounding the town. Better than the views was the service!! Our server (Ari) is the daughter of the owner (Reza), she was so kind, humble and quick to provide exceptional service with great conversation!!! Both Reza and Ari made us feel incredibly welcomed and wanted!! They truly understand customer service!!! Great job!! I will return to this place anytime I am in the area from here on!! Thank you for an amazing evening!! Lee & Erin (Indianapolis)More

I come here a lot as I live in Morrison and I only come for drinks and the view. Service is always so-so and food is overpriced and not that good. Today however I stopped by for a few drinks, and although our server was...new he was very friendly. My friend was only drinking soda water and was charged 3 dollars for each one! It was soda water out of the soda gun so nothing special. Ended up paying over 12 dollars for soda water which is ridiculous. We even asked about it and nothing was done to resolve the issue. Shame on us for not asking about free refils but never in my life have I gotten charged for refills on carbonated water from the tap. Love the view, but the so-so service and things being overpriced is enough for me and I'm not sure I'll be back.More

Came here after a hike for a cold beer and a snack. The view and ambience was beautiful. Fun to look over the road and people watch. Although the menu is limited our food was fresh and delicious.

Just left the rooftop tavern and the service was needless to say horrible. Our waitress (with short blond hair)had one of the worst attitudes towards our group. We ordered two different types of mules and she brought us our drinks. After tasting them no ginger...beer. We asked if we could have some ginger beer added we were told oh there is none in the drink and we do not have any. When questioned her why did you not let us know before hand because we would have ordered something else. Attitude became worse. She then gives us ginger ale soda to add to our drinks. Really!!!! One of the worst services I have come across in years and the waitresses attitude I have never been treated that rudely before in all my travels. Stay away from this place! Apparently the customer is not right and does not know what they want.More

First of all, we have been coming to this restaurant for over 10 years. This past weekend on Saturday we were in Morrison and wanted a quick snack and adult beverage so we went upstairs to the roof top bar. They have a limited menu,...but all is prepared downstairs and usually really good. We ordered the medium pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms and jalapeno's on the gluten free crust. The pizza is $11.99 plus $2.49 for each topping. It's listed as a medium pizza. Well, it's tiny, like a personal pizza meant for one person with no appetite. The bartender suggested this crust as we don't care for deep dish, however didn't tell us about the $4.00 extra charge for glutin free crust. So, our $11.99 pizza is now $23.46. The hubby had a beer ($7) and I ordered the pinot grigio glass of wine. There are no prices for wine on the menu but we were just there the weekend before so IDK what happened this visit as it was $10 a glass and I had two. We felt sorry for the bartender as she was completely in the weeds (couldn't handle the small amount of guests). She had help from a sweet man from their restaurant below. He basically ran all her food, got all her hot chocolates, delivered drinks, etc. but she was frantic. She was our server the week before, but we were basically her only customers, so service was fine. I accept the fact I didn't ask the cost of the wine, but the misleading of the terribly small pizza with deceptive pricing along with poor service just didn't sit well. The weekend before, we ate downstairs in the restaurant and it was amazing. Just avoid the roof top tavern unless you ask what ever single charge will be. Sad as the view here outside is amazing and the food is above average to really good (depending where you eat). I can't recommend the roof top tavern. Also, she did NOT provide us with an itemized bill, we had to ask for it. Once we received it, we questioned the charges and she laughing said, "yea, the pizza charges are crazy, but that's your bill". WTH?More

The bar top is nice, and in a good location. At 6:00 pm the sun is straight in our eyes. We open the umbrella next to our table, problem solved. One of the stall members comes by and puts the umbrella down. I say put...that back up please, the sun is blasting us. Nope. I ask the owner, can you please put the umbrella up. Nope, we don't put those umbrellas up. That umbrellas broken. What ?!%@? We're having dinner and drinks in your restaurant? The owner says sit somewhere else. This owner's a jerk. Next time we'll sit at a different table, in another restaurant. The food wasn't that good anyway.More
