American classics with a little global influence means your taste buds will love you when they bite into something like the Thai Flatbread. If you’re a little bit more hungry, go for the Union Burger. This incredible little restaurant features an even more incredible Happy Hour as well. Happy Hour is Tuesday through Saturday, 2-6pm in the bar and upper patio. If you go for drinks, we suggest getting the fresh squeezed $3 margarita!

One of the oldest buildings in town now boast the title of being one of the best restaurants in town. Built in 1888, St. Francis of Assisi was the first church in Castle Rock. It hosted a congregation until the 1960’s when the people outgrew the building. In 1975, the Old Stone Church was remodeled and renovated into a restaurant. If you go and enjoy a meal here, you’ll sit where the choir sat or even in the former confessional, which is now a table for two. A seasonal inspired menu means if you go at different times of the year, you will see different items on the menu. The Old Stone Church has an incredible amount of history in the area and now serves the residents as one of the best restaurants in town.
