  • Rolf's Restaurant & Pub
    With its dining room, pub with live music on weekends, seasonal patio, and two private banquet rooms, Rolf's Restaurant offers patrons multiple ways to enjoy a meal or grab drinks within the same space. Private banquet rooms include the Sun Room, with airy windows that let light flood in and keep pet cacti happy while diners relax at four-seat linen-clad tables, and the Warren Room, where purple chairs, matching walls, and regal curtains glow in the light of chandeliers whose shapes mimic flower petals. The restaurant’s aesthetic elegance extends to the menu, which has enjoyed a rebirth thanks to a new executive chef, Glenn Arnold. A Rolf’s veteran for nearly a decade, Arnold left the establishment to hone his gourmet talents at The Culinary Institute of America. With his victorious return, the chef adds a new twist to old standbys and devises new items for the menu while endlessly looping "Eye of the Tiger" over the kitchen speakers. Diners can now savor a selection that ranges from traditional German specialties such as kasespaetzle, jagerschnitzel und pommes, and sauerbraten to more casual fare, such as gourmet sandwiches and pizzas.
