Good value with very large servings. Friendly and attentive service. I'd call this a family restaurant with an Italian leaning. Good enough but nothing special.

This restaurant was recommended by the proprietor of the B&B we were staying at and we were thrilled we followed his advice. We had several of their craft beers and they were delicious. The two of us decided to share four different items from the menu and all were great. Our favourites were the Cajun mussels and the goat cheese... More

Many thanks for allowing us to move tables around to accommodate our group for our annual Friday at Roosters dinner after the Vintage re-inactment Race. This is now a 7+ year tradition that we look forward to continuing. Your hostess was awesome, the waiter could use an attitude adjustment.....but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. Good food and great friends!

I had lunch with my wife during our stay .We both had the burgers , mine was with the goat cheese which was excellent. The IPA beer was ok but had a strong flavour not terrible just be warned.My wife had a bacon cheese burger which she enjoyed very much along with a very tasty raspberry ice tea.

While on vacation we stumbled upon Rooster Fish. Beer selection was nice, food good, service ok. Our bartender was nice but very inexperienced, and as we had a visual vantage point to the taps we saw some weird pour techniques. The bartender was having issue with the pressure in a few taps and would pre-pour, into a pitcher and then... More

Nice gem of a local craft brewer. These guys brew real beer and a good selection of styles. I also liked the fact that they didn't kill you on the price of a pint glass to take home, only a few bucks. I liked a bunch but they have a good ability to make bold yet smooth IPA's

We had heard of this great microbrew/food place from our daughter who had been here once before. They brew their own beer and there is a great selection to choose from, the beer flights are placed on a mat with the names on it so you know exactly which beer you are tasting. It was fun to try out several,... More
