Easy walk from the Marriott. Friendly service, good portions and fairly priced. I had the snapper which was outstanding. The lobster was great. It is just a quite little place for great food.

We ate at Rock Lobster on a Thursday night in June. I should have eaten their lobster, which my wife ordered and enjoyed, but I went for the paella. I'm a big fan of paella and when I saw it on the menu I knew I needed to check it out. It was a big disappointment. It was obvious that... More
