Stopped here while roaming down Pier Ave. It was nice to sit by the open air large windows while there was rain off and on with a cool breeze. Very romantic and not cold at all. We had a couple of good beers, split a burger, garlic truffle fries with parmesan, and Brussels sprouts. Yes, Brussels sprouts! Wow they were... More

Came here for drinks and a light bite. Good beer but little pricey and food very average. Service friendly but annoying in so far as they were overly keen to remove plates before we had finished and to close out the check. Nice setting and reasonably good place to go with friends for drinks.

Quick friendly service brought us an adequate meal - nothing wrong or lacking but nothing exceptional. It was very pleasant to sit on the outdoor terrace and watch the world go by!

We go to Hermosa Beach every 4 to 6 weeks. We never fail to stop by Rockefellers. Open dining is something we don't get to enjoy in Dallas and we love that aspect of this place, for sure. All the food is great, but they have two guilty pleasures we really enjoy. The first is the Mac n Cheese. We... More

We chose this place because it was a short stroll from our hotel and saw that it had an excellent local beer selection. It was very busy when we arrived, but we were seated immediately. We sat outside and enjoyed the lovely evening weather. Our waitress was very attentive and even entertained our daughter. She was able to articulate items... More

We stopped in for happy hour. The food list didn't excite us, but the beer menu looked good. We stayed for two each. I could have stayed till closing!

My husband and a friend went to The Rockefeller this past Sunday for brunch and all we said was WOW ! The place was a bit loud with a large group yelling over each other, so we asked for a table in the back which worked out fine. Service was quick and efficient - a big plus these days. To... More

The lobster pot pie was to die for! Service exceptional. Don't believe the older reviews. They have made considerable changes. I went back 3 times when I was in town and it was all good. Looking forward to going back in a few weeks.
