Good food, friendly service

The salad bar is good - my colleagues like the Prime Rib a lot. Service is quick, friendly and efficient. Family friendly and a nice atmosphere

Delicious and fresh salad bar, amazing bread. Portions were large and the service was quick. We would recommend to travelers and families. Our waiter, Jordan, was so good with our toddler grandson and that made the evening truly enjoyable.

Came here with family the night before flying out of Hartford. Service was excellent, waitress very attentive. Food quality was very good. I had a grilled chicken sandwich. The salad bar has a very nice variety of items and I would recommend it.

Had a agency anniversary party here and the staff could not have not have been more helpful! They helped us set up and then they set up for our cocktail hour and their appetizers were absolutely excellent. The Scallop wrapped bacon was the best I had ever had with large wonderful scallops completely wrapped with the slice of bacon, perfect,... More

Some thought has gone into the decor, very Wild West , Arizona, etc. I only choose to have hamburger once on any trip to the U.S. and I am glad I chose this restaurant to have it. Buffalo instead of beef for a change. Staff appeared to be very attentive.

We were a party of 8 adults and 3 children for Saturday morning brunch. Bacon and eggs and waffles, oh my! In addition to Dakota's traditionally satisfying salad bar, we enjoyed a smoked fish (salmon and trout) bar with all the yummy bits (i.e. - red onion, capers), omelet station, waffle bar, carving station and a dessert bar with so...

Sat in the bar area to take advantage of "happy hour" drink prices. $6.00 for a generic martini, some appetizer specials but that is it. Ordered a pricey steak and it was overlooked! Salad bar was very picked over. Mashed sweet potatoes were nothing great! Bartender was wonderful but the steaks were definitely not worth the hefty bill! I'd not... More

Loved the interior décor & beautiful fireplace. Made you feel like you were somewhere other than Rocky Hill Ct. We went with sandwiches that included a side PLUS a great salad bar. Our server was both attentive & pleasant. I do wish that Trip Advisor had a "good" overall rating, rather than just average. I'd go back.

Was there for lunch on Thursday Mar 12 and was very disappointed. Have eaten at the one in Pittsfield, Mass many times. But this was 1st time at Rocky Hill. Soiled Dishes were being handled so nosily at the service station. I don't know if they are understaffed. My server was not very friendly or talkative. I waited and waited... More
