Great place to visit during the week when it's less crowded. Received prompt attention by the staff, was able to try out some brews, left with a filled growler and some of their bottled brews. Staff..... more

What a wonderful place to go on a Tuesday afternoon. They have “Taco Tuesday” and being from Texas these are one of the best tacos we have found in this area. Then you add a hard cider, perfect...

One of my all time favorite spots. The blackberry cider is beyond delicious (I miss the glass bottles!) and the view is amazing. I love it when they have little festivals with live music and food trucks, although their house food is also delicious and I believe they change their menu with the seasons. Anytime I have something to celebrate, I am at here at Bold Rock.
We have always enjoyed the river and scenery behind the main building. Their new distillery is a must-stop. New whiskey, vodka, and bourbon. I preferred whiskey and bourbon and these definitely earned a spot on my shelf at home(bottles only available to buy here), my wife likes the vodka which is distilled 5 times, smooth. We will definitely be back.
