Taprock today represents Grants Pass, Southern Oregon and ultimately the Pacific Northwest. From the physical characteristics that bring the amazing lodge-style to life to the focused entrées and items that represent exactly that, the Pacific Northwest at its finest. We are very involved in our community, and truly believe that we are only as strong as the people that surround us. Our focus over the years has not changed, and we continue to provide a great place for locals to call their favorite for many reasons, as well as the influx of visitors who come to Grants Pass and choose to dine on our deck overlooking the Rogue River for the short time they’re here.
Our goal is to continue what we started, to remain a staple in this wonderful place we call home, to provide amazing Pacific Northwest fare inspired by the region, and utilize ingredients sourced locally from farmlands and waters all around us. Above all that, we will continue to be a leader in our community and our region and provide opportunities, hope and vision for the coming generations to build upon. Additional goals, include franchising opportunities, to grow this amazing restaurant into a household name throughout the state and celebrate what makes Taprock Northwest Grill a favorite to many.
Thank you Grants Pass for 10 years! Here's to another decade!
A community celebration and rededication of two iconic Grants Pass historic features took place today at 10:30 a.m., here overlooking the Caveman Bridge. The public was invited to attend.
The $5.3 million renovation of the Caveman Bridge, which first opened in 1931, was observed followed by the dedication of the refurbished Redwood Empire sign by the City of Grants Pass.
The 18-month renovation of Caveman Bridge was finished in February. It included cosmetic and structural repairs, including seismic upgrades, new rails and lights, deck resurfacing and a total renovation of the aging concrete bridge surface.
A brass plaque was unveiled to commemorate the bridge.
