First visit and won't be the last......

Made a stop here on the way home from Lancaster, PA Found it on Yelp and thought we'd give it a try and we're glad we did. Parking lot was very full but only waited about 5 mins to get a table. She had a salad that was very good size and fresh & tasty. I had a sandwich and... read more

the restaurant has delicious food. The service was great. The waitstaff was wonderful. They answered all our questions. It had a pub style venue which we enjoyed. The restaurant menu had plenty of choices. They have a band on weekends.

My wife and I shared a mini Rhino fry { crushed bacon over melted cheese fries} and our dinners. We still brought home some Rhino fries due to being filled.

My husband and I went for dinner with friends. My husband had eaten at this restaurant a number of times while he was still working for lunch and raved about it. First time we ate there for dinner. The menu is very good. Many different choices. My husband and the other two people all ordered a stir fry meal and... More

The food is okay, not really good. The restaurant was so loud we opted to sit at the far nicer bar. The bar is nice; the restaurant not. It feels like a step above a Cracker Barrel. The service is friendly, but a bit slow. It took far longer than expected to get soup. The potato soup should be listed... More

This place, recently remodeled, has a huge bar when you first walk in. There is also ample seating at booths and tables. In the summer, there is a great big area, fenced in, that reminds you of some bars you would see outside at the beach. Service is usually quick and the food, a wide variety, is very good. The...

I have been to Rockwell's 10+ times, so this review will be a cumulative one. Normally, the managers and bartenders are friendly and competent, very pleasant. The greeters and servers, though, are extremely hit and miss. During our last visit, we arrived about 45 minutes before kitchen closing. Having worked as a cook in restaurants, I understand that it might... More

The food is always good and the prices are decent. I had a group of 9 people and everyone enjoyed their meal and they were happy with the prices as well as the service.
