Great experience! We were excited they accepted reservations and held it on time too. Sat outside in the huts and food was amazing. My wife and I split the 3 meat platter and had food left over. Cornbread waffles were delish and pulled pork was perfect.

We had an amazing experience with our family of six! I emailed to make sure it was ok to have six people in a hut and I was warmly accommodated. We went to celebrate my birthday and it was perfect in every way! The server was excellent and the food very tasty. Nice ending to receive a free birthday waffle and extra utensils to share! Highly recommend Dr. Rolf's!!

The quality of the food specifically the taste was a 10. We dined outside on a cold evening and sat under a tent. (It did have heaters though so we were warm.) So, I gave Ambiance an 8 which I feel is really good for a tent. The service was good but there were a couple of times we went a while without seeing our server. Again, an 8 not a 3. I have been to Dr. Rolf's four times in the last month since I discovered it sharing my find with friends and family. Everyone loves it. Keep it up guys!

I love that you offer the outdoor huts! They could be tiny bit warmer and maybe have a little bluetooth speaker for music. The time limit could be a little longer too. We like time to chat between drink, app, food and there really wasn't any. Food was great. I love that there are meatless options! So many places don't have that. We'll be back!

We have lived all of our times eating at Dr Rolfs, but this was especially memorable. During this weird time, to be able to eat outdoors in the winter with family & to be warm, was special! Thank you for providing the huts & your amazing barbecue!

The large portions of food were very tasty, although the meat in the appetizer and all four of our main dishes was just warm, not hot. You continue to have the best Mac and cheese in town. Service was great, except we had to go inside to ask for our plastic utensils, then waited while our burnt ends cooled down. Everyone was was extremely friendly. The huts are safe and convenient, although cramped. Overall, our celebration of being vaccinated was tasty & fun. PS we are glad you have more choices in adult beverages than previously.

Good meal, very thankful to have a dinner and seem a little bit normal again! Only thing I would say is possibly creating a 1 1/2 time limit instead of an hour. When we arrived they let us know the previous table went over by 10 minutes so it pushed us back ten minute and then so on and so on. It’s hard to have an appetizer & drinks, dinner, & a dessert all in 60 minutes, especially with multiple people. Overall was great and will definitely be back!

We were there to celebrate my parents anniversary which I noted on the reservation. There was no mention of their anniversary and no special treatment (maybe a dessert to share for 50% off??). My Mom's wine glass had lip marks on the rim when it was served to her, which the server immediately replaced. Then one of the plastic wall sections from the greenhouse came loose and fell down, which was promptly taped, but the tape didn't hold very long, so it was very cold with a 6-8 inch gapping hole in the "wall". I've been at Dr. Rolf's a few times since December, but honestly, I was disappointed and my expectations were not met tonight.
