I always love this place. I have been here about ten times and neither I nor my dining companions have been disappointed. Much of the seafood is oceanwise (sustainable) and the butter chicken is out of this world. They are very often busy, so I try to go at off times. I am not worried if I have to wait,... More

You know ,I used to frequent the rock cod quite often. I even gave gift cards away to my clients.I haven't been to the RockCod for over a year and a half now due to personal ties to the restaurant,. Yesterday however, I decided to go in for a seafood dinner. Upon entering I saw two of the most miserable... More

We all loved absolutely EVERYTHING about the Rock Cod Cafe. We had dinner there twice on our week long visit to Mill Bay, and could easily have had every meal there!

We had an early dinner, were seated right away in a window seat.The waiter was very friendly and he made good suggestions for drinks. Followed up with Halibut and Chips (very generous serving), soup in a bread bowl, Halibut asian noodle dish and a chicken fettuccine. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and at that time of day it was an easy... More

Liked being greeted as soon as we walked in the door. We were asked if we had a table preference; willing to oblige! Served drinks within a minute after ordering even though they were very busy. We ordered one serving of Cod & Chips each and actually got two pieces of fish and a huge serving! We thought the server... More

This is a great place for a casual sea food meal. This is not high class dining but good basic fare at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is definitely rustic. Take in the floating/boat museum next door for a little after dinner enlightenment.

We met to celebrate a number of things, and had been planning the outing for six months. Calendars coincided and so we enjoyed calamari, fish and chips, shrimp penne and more. The hostess who greeted us at the door was wanting to put us in her section but we had reserved another table. Alas! Three of us knew the other... More
