While the reviews were mixed, I appreciated Shay's simple review. We were staying at the Marriott and didn't venture too far for food because we didn't want to pay a great deal in taxi fares. The food was good, and agreeing with Shay - the Calamari was awesome. But what we found to be outstanding was the service. Very attentive,... More

Based upon reading reviews our expectations were set high. Unfortunately Rock Lobster should have been called bland, overlooked lobster. The paella and the conch chowder had the same 2 qualities. For pricey entrees we expected the taste and quality to be better. However, we were happy with the ambiance, service, and presentation.

The food is really brilliant, even if you don't eat lobster! My only disappointment is that drinks everywhere on the island seem to come from the pump and I just don't like the taste! Despite that, the service was great and on my second visit I took my own can and there were no objections!

We both had the lobster dinners and it was fabulous. Excellent pear and walnut salad. We sat outside and enjoyed the evening weather. Bugs not a problem. Total bill with tip was just over $60. Again, an excellent dinner, thanks!

We stopped by for dinner while staying a the Marriott. The place had a nice atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. Pricing was around $20-$25 for standard dinners more for lobster.

Horrible experience! I literally saw two mice crawling up the curtain. We told the server and he completely disregarded what we said and his exact words were " Bon Appetit". A friend of mine ended up asking for the manager, when we told the manager about the situation she blamed it on the construction occurring behind the restaurant. She made... More
