Had just come from a very spicy Chinese lunch and needed a strong one to bring the buds back to life. The barkeeps were very prompt and friendly. Great selection of craft drafts. Met the owner Donny and I am looking forward to having lunch...More

Went in a Friday after a legislative session. There were lobbyists, office parties, and a warm buzz about the place. Nice racial mix that's rare in the USA. I'd go back for that but the food and drink were great too.

We were just passing through Hartford but wanted lunch somewhere near the capitol. We had a great lunch at the Red Rock enjoying the atmosphere and especially the bartender and wait staff who were very pleasant and shared some local history.

I love the fun salads at Red Rock... They come in what looks like a giant taco bowl/shell and they're so yummy! A family owned place with great customer service. They make you feel apart of theirs :)

What can you say about a place where the owner cooks your meals and then checks to see if your satisfied? This is an old time family run tavern where customers run from the rang of locals, politicals, insurance co folks, state workers n more....More
