Friendly place with good food

A local favorite, the food is always good, and the service is friendly. Portions are very substantial. Active bar. Overall, a good place to go.

I was very impressed with the varied selections on their lunch menu and the prices were very reasonable. Our server was attentive and checked back with us at appropriate intervals. The food portions were ample and the taste was great. The Creamy Potato soup was outstanding. I will definitely be returning.

Planned a birthday dinner for daughter and first, they would not take a reservation for 6 people so we had to gamble on getting a table. Parking lot was completely jammed up and had to park elsewhere and walk. We were seated fairly promptly in the "Atrium" which is a large room with actual garage doors on the west facing... More

Always head here for a causal dinner. Rhino fries are always a must have. Never had anything bad to eat here. Lots of choices for seating as well (inside, outside, and atrium)!

Good service at the bar. They were on top of everything. The place was crowded for a Monday but that is a good sign. Crab cake was just average, wife's salmon was good. Nice selection of beer, place was clean, food is a little above average.

Awesome drink menu and reasonable prices. A lot of food choices. We had a group of ten and we all got something different. Everyone enjoyed everything. The service was great. I would definitely go back to eat whenever I go to Nissley winery again.

Ate here twice in a week. The first time was great - fantastic food, decent prices, decent service. The second time we never got a server. Eventually a different table's server came by and asked us if we had been served. We told her no, so she took our order (it was only for two people). Someone else brought our... More

WE stopped by T J Rockwell's on Sunday after church, it was a beautiful day & we ate on the deck. Salmon dinner & Mango shrimp/chicken dinner was very good. the green beans were very fresh however had a light sauce on them that made them very salty. Service was kind of slow and had to ask for water refills..... More

Eight of us visited on a Friday evening with reservations. The parking lot (and I assume the deck) was a zoo but our table was waiting for us inside. Our server, Paula, could not have been more on top of things - excellent job! We had a variety of dinners and sandwiches and everyone seemed very satisfied with the food.... More

For $29.99 you get french fries, corn on the cob, cole slaw and AYCE blue crabs. All the food came out hot and yummy (except the slaw :.0) Pretty sure they were female crabs but definitely fit the bill for yummy crab. I usually avoid corn on the cob in restaurants because it tends to be soggy but this corn... More
