We were only looking for a cup of coffee and a restroom so we stopped here on our way to Fort Collins from Silverthorne. It was beautiful inside, gorgeous wooden tables, decor and a nice homely feel. We stayed for lunch and coffee - great basic burger, made fresh and very tasty. Coffee was good too and no problem getting... More

I have eaten at River Rock on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the food and service. The menu has a wide variety from simple sandwiches to more robust dinner entree. There's something for everyone.

Had a great meal here in the middle of nowhere. Portobello mushroom sandwich was wonderful, as was the prime rib sandwich special, and the staff was very friendly in spite of being very busy at lunch time.

We stayed at the Antler's Inn, so it was convenient to have a restaurant just downstairs... however we would have eaten here multiple times even if we hadn't stayed just upstairs! We ate here three times during our stay, the food and service was just fantastic! Food was hot and fresh and had great flavor. Servers were very attentive and... More

My senior church group stopped here for lunch during a recent fall color tour of the Poudre Canyon. What a delight. By calling in advance, the large back room was reserved for us with bathrooms separate from the main dining room. A pre-set menu was provided with 5 choices and the food was excellently prepared, served quickly by friendly wait... More

We've eaten here several times over the years and truly enjoyed everything. But, this year, all I can say is "never again" I had planned on ordering the hot beef sandwich, but thankfully the server warned me that people were complaining about the meat being tough. So opted for their "prize winning" chicken fried steak special. Not sure what prize... More

The food is good, service too and nice atmosphere. I had the Reuben with sweet potato fries and my husband had the lunch special of an open face prime rib sandwich with a side of onion rings. Lots of nice choices for the sides too. We'll be stopping again
