River Rock Alehouse Grand Re-Opening on Monday

Posted By on Sun, Jun 5, 2011 at 2:00 PM

Longtime Eagle patio fave River Rock Alehouse will celebrate its official grand re-opening as The River Rock Eagle on Monday, June 6, with complementary apps, organic wines from 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards and live music by Spike Erickson.

Former owners Todd Lancourt and Greg Butcher sold the restaurant in April to Phillip Mason and his wife Diana. According to manager Aly Morrow, River Rock has downsized the menu and tweaked it to focus on higher-quality, better-value fare.

“The new menu, it’s a lot of the old favorites, just made better,” said Morrow. “We’ve upped the portions, gotten better quality stuff. We added a few things, a few vegetarian items … we’re just trying to make it better quality for your money.”

In addition to lowering drink prices, the River Rock will feature a rotating weekly menu called the Fresh Sheet, which will offer dishes like a barbecue pulled pork sandwich, maple barbecue salmon and top sirloin with prawns.

“The main thing is we’re just starting to make stuff from scratch—all our soups are made from scratch now, all our dressings are made from scratch,” said Morrow. “We didn’t change the menu a ton because everyone loves all the stuff … we really wanted to get down to the core of our ingredients and make them as good as we can get them.”
