We are from Modesto and never hesitate to take a drive up to Twain Hart to enjoy a meal at The Rock. Never a disappointment. We were just there last Sunday....delish and ordered a slice of Carrot Cake to take home for dessert.

We really loved the fish & chips and prime rib however the wait for our food was horrendous.  Also when we arrived we were told that a table for 3 would only be about 5-10 wait and it ended up being more like 30 minutes.  Frustrating because we could have gone elsewhere.  I would not go on a busy night if you're starving, don't have ... read more

Fantastic pub right in downtown Twain Harte.  Fun rural styling with friendly staff.  It can get busy but it is worth it.  Delicious food with very reasonable prices.  Would like to see at least a couple options for vegans.  Even the onion soup isn't flagged as vegetarian.

This place was recommended to us by the lady at the Wildwood Inn. It's was conveniently located right around the corner from our Inn. My daughter order The Lodge burger and she loved it. Meat was perfectly cooked. I asked the server for a recommendation between the tri-tip french dip and the fish & chip. He didn't hesitate when recom... read more

I've eaten at the Rock numerous times and it's been really good and really bad. Their service is always great; friendly staff who makes you feel right at home. Their sandwiches and wings are really tasty. The chicken salad is awful; they use the fake smoke for their smoked chicken. All I could taste was smoke, very over powering and ... read more

We've enjoyed this place for years having the salads (for me) and dips/rubens  (for him).  To night we stepped out of the box! I had the amazing angus/ portabella/gorgonzola burger with BACON!!  He had the best Shepard's Pie I've ever had, and I make a mean one.  ;).

Average
Somehow this restaurant seems to attract a lot of customers. It is very crowded, but the food is average considering its price. Also, the room is very smoky, and the staff had to open the door to clear the smoke.

Small place, Great food, Good Service enuf said.
My title says it all I think, but I will elaborate by saying the food was all good. They did take a bit long to tend to everyone but we had a group of 13 and ate in casual atmosphere outside on benches. The prices are fair and two people could easily share a plate the burgers and salads are generous in size. I loved it!
