Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Place was beautiful with a nice atmosphere. Was practically empty though. Got the Caesar salad with chicken and it was very small and way too salty.

The place is beautiful. Good food. Good service. And the bar atmosphere was nice. Good music. First time we went, we sat riverside which was sweet! They also have rooftop seating. Will return.

I've been coming to the Rockwater since 2014. I've eaten there over 100 times. The food is high quality and prepared with care. From the kitchen staff to the serving staff the service is top rated.

Drove into Golden for a quick lunch and chose Rockwater for the outside patio. View across the river was nice and you were literally next to the wooden bridge across the river. Food was average but service was friendly. Burger was especially good!!

This restaurant is nicely decorated with a great view of the Kicking Horse river in Golden BC. We ate lunch on the patio which was very inviting. Lots of space. The food was terrific, a good variety to choose from and very fresh tasting and artfully displayed. You might think it's a tad pricey for lunch but honestly, I don't... More
