Went on a busy Friday night, the staff and the food were outstanding. We'll definitely be back. Our steak was cooked to perfection and there is a great variety of different drinks available, unfortunately didn't have chance to try more!

Highly Recommend the St. Luis Ribs, Chicken, Wood-Fired Pizza and Chocolate mousse!!! Very friendly attentive staff. Love all the TV's. The manager and chef even came out and introduced themselves. Fairly full house at 5pm on Mother's day and didn't have to wait for a table. My new favorite place in AG.

Love this place. The waiter was very friendly and writing orders down on a iPhone app then sent to ipad in the kitchen was clever. Plenty of tv for sporting actions. My glass of water was never empty as they keep refilling it all the time. Good Times.

Must try the tuna tar tar. So good. Great hangout place. If you want a table be aware it gets busy so get a drink sit and relax as you wait or eat at the bar like I do. :)

Went to Rooster Creek restaurant in the Village tonight hoping for a lovely meal. We ordered the Monday special of prime rib. My husband asked for french fries with his instead of mashed potatoes. Our salad was not chilled, the blue cheese was thin and watery and his fries were not cooked! They were slimy with grease, limp and raw inside. We sent them back only to be replaced with the exact same thing! Greasy, limp and raw. I called over the manager who was supremely uninterested only to be told he would "make a note of it". Bloody Hell. Nothing was deducted from the bill and I was left feeling that our business meant nothing to them. We will never go there again. Another thing, it's really difficult to enjoy your meal while trying to fend off flies. And now I am feeling the after effects of all the MSG they dumped on the entire meal. On a positive note our server was very nice. I will be posting this on Yelp.

I have to admit that while I scrolled through some of the reviews for Rooster Creek, I found myself nodding my head in agreement... some were spot-on. I will say that the service left much to be desired in the beginning, however the last two or three times I have visited, the staff and management (of which there seems to be quite a few) have seemed to hit their stride. The redhead bartender is really one of the stars on staff -- amazingly attentive and fantastic customer service when you sit in the bar. That being said... the last time we visited we actually had somewhere to be and came early to avoid the rush and give ourselves plenty of time. Forty-five minutes after ordering our food finally came, leaving us a luxurious fifteen minutes to eat, pay and scramble out. Not so much fun. But like the rest of the local reviewers, I've been waiting for an alternative eating establishment in the Village. Aside from a well-worn Italian restaurant and some yummy appetizers and light menus we really were lacking a full restaurant that boasts a bar. So I will continue to give it another try, hoping that this well located eatery will finally hit it's stride. The food you ask? I would honestly say that 75% of the menu that I've tried so far has been delish and I would order again. My mom absolutely LOVED the crab cakes and would order again and again if they hadn't rotated them off the menu for another seasonal dish. She will look forward to their return in the Fall. I have really loved their Caprese salad -- delectable fresh Mozzarella chilled to perfection, crowned with fresh basil and drizzled with a syrupy balsamic -- all served with crispy crostini. My husband LOVES their fried chicken -- but be warned that it is only available at lunch. I would encourage them to think about a Fried Chicken Plate for dinner -- we would turn into regulars. I have loved their Portabello Sandwich -- tender and juicy. I would pass on the Mac and Cheese however -- it was watery and over-cooked with very little flavor for what is meant to be classic home-cooked Mac. Disappointing as it is usually a standby for me when I can't choose. The steak salad is also a winner and I would also recommend their house fries as they seem fresh-cut and are cooked to crispy perfection. I have to admit I am still searching for an artisan pizza I will repeat -- the Grilled Veggie - Goat Cheese - Roasted Garlic pizza had an overwhelming taste of Vinegar. Possibly the veggies had been marinated in Balsamic too long -- but it was acidic to the taste. And don't miss the Beef Carpaccio with Parmesan Cheese, Capers and Olive Oil -- a very well constructed dish with excellent presentation. As a result I will conclude with the promise that I do plan to return, as I think the owners, chef and staff have great intentions and a solid foundation. Maybe this Rooster just needs to take a cue from its' namesakes in the Village -- find the service and dishes to really crow about and then they will quickly be on our regular Village rotation.
