Horrible Service on Patio – We returned to the Rock Rest Lodge a few weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon. We had been there quite a few times and had enjoyed it. We ordered our pitcher of beer inside then moved to the patio. When we ordered a nother pitcher the waitress brought us the wrong beer and insisted it was right. When she realized it wasn't she literally ignored us for 45 minutes knowing we wanted to order something. She walked around and laughed with everyone on the patio, never once looking at us. We finally had to get our check from the bartender. Such a shame because I really love the atmosphere, but don't know if I will be back.
Cool Place – Always looking for cool, independently owned places that reflect the region. ‘The Rock Rest” has it all. Been around for a hundred years. As soon as you walk in, you get a comfortable vibe. The food is great and inexpensive. Saw a beer being poured from a rhino head…..are you kidding me? The service was good and attentive. Love the place will be back!
Doorstaff – Well sat night is ladys night and I must say I was very happy with the service me and my friends received from the bouncers , one was the manager for security his name was tony he was very polite and helpful , I came to him with a complaint about the rude bartender at the front bar ( dark hair one with power trip ) he calmed me down and git me my drinks from the back bar and made my night valor better , if bot for him I would have blown thus place off and went some where else . And not to motion the fact that he smelled so good and looked very handsome and strong . I would tell my girl friends about this place but tell them to stay away from the hag at the front bar
Free Friday Night Dinners – Went in to try the friday dinners that I have heard so many people talking about and let me tell you this was by far some of the best food i have ever had.They were serving what one manager called Baked spaggatti with garlic breadsticks dinner saled and dessert fresh veggies and it was all free thats right free they do this every friday at happy hour and have for about a year and let me tell you i have gone to itlian resterants that didnt have food this good.There happy hour prices are unbleavible as well 2.00 for there well and 4.00 for a pitcher the only bad thing about the night was when we were leaving and the manager got in a fight with one of the other patrons not that big of a deal but he was drunker then the guy he was fighting with its to bad a great place like this has so many problems with there staff other wise it would have been a perfect night. i highly recomend it for its food and its prices and if they solve there staffing issue they will be a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.
Beware, Bartender on a Power Trip! – While the Rock Rest Lounge does offer great drink specials and a nice patio, they certainly lack in friendly service. Watch out for a middle aged blond woman who thinks she is above it all! She is arrogant, rude and condecending-and that is to someone who isn't drinking. The younger bartenders, on the other hand, are fantastic, fast and friendly. The place is notorious for kicking people out and cutting people off which is a shame because it could be a fun place to kick up your heels and dance. Bottom line it is a nice place if you don't mind the "friendly" being taken out of friendly neighborhood bar!
Rockin at the Rest – The Rock Rest is a bar and grill with a colorful past and a promising future. Thursday nights are the time to be hear as it is college night and the place fills up. The fun starts around 7:30 pm with interactive trivia from the good people at Excessive Entertainment which usually last's until around 10:00 pm. After that the dance floor opens followed by a coyote ugly contest at midnight. The food is excellent but there is no wait service you go to the kitchen window to order and they call you when it is ready. A few stand out's on the menu are any of the bbq selections, the peanut butter buger (sounds gross but trust me it's good) and the shang hi wings all are excellent. And dont forget the drink specials during trivia pitchers of coors light are only $3.99
