Come for the CAKE!

The food is okay, on a par with a Mimi's Cafe...although it's clear they aspire to something more. What I HIGHLY recommend is ordering a cake from them for a special occasion.

Came here for a friends get together. Nice rustic decor. Drinks were ok, they had a full bar. Regular cocktail prices. 10-14$. The lamb burger was amazing! The fries were fine. I would go again just for the lamb burger. I thought the service was poor. We waited a while before the server came to get our drink orders and... More

We had not been since the change of owners, and went for dinner. They have made a number of changes to the building, obviously trying to create a bar clientele. The Cinco de Mayo margaritas were weak and too salty, the brussel sprouts appetizer was OK, and was the meatloaf and the duck pot pie. But each of the entrees... More

This is our local eatery and bar. It is a lot of fun...DJ's, Live Music, Friends, Delicious Drinks to name a few. Their appetizers are delicious. We celebrated New Year's there, dinner, dancing, etc. The Prime Rib dinner was excellent! They know how to throw a party...top notch!

Rockwell's had always been our go-to restaurant if we wanted a good meal, especially for lunch (breakfast was also served). However, the restaurant was sold about a year ago and has gone downhill since. Recently I ordered one of my favorite dishes there, a French dip. When it was served, the bread was dripping in so much oil that I... More

SERIOUSLY horrible. Gave it too many chances when it opened. Service was constantly bad. The food was OK and then bad. Not consistant. Was overcharged everytime. The owners have no service experience at all and don't seem to care. Myself and several friends did the same and all of us have not been back and NEVER will. Try "the catch'... More

Now open for dinner, Rockwell's has a wonderful menu. The chicken cordon-bleu with Dijon sauce was delicious. I am going back soon to have one of their entree salads. My only disappointment was that the wait staff was very indifferent. Did not refill water or beverage glasses. When we asked about dessert, after check had already been left on the... More

We visited Rockwell Bakery upon a recommendation from a freind. The bakery was open late (actually the bar side of it) but even the bakery side was open to ten PM. We tried several of the cookies and pastries and were terribly disappointed none of the offerings were anything more that I might expect at a super market. The only... More

Neighborhood favorite. New owners with a bar and expansion well in progress. It is exciting to have a new version of an old favorite.
