First, let's mention the good points. The food was excellent. The service was also excellent. Unfortunately, the venue itself was poor for a family dinner. We arrived early so that we could be sure to get a table. This restaurant fills up and a long wait is often the case at peak times. Also, it appears that the parking lot... More

My spouse and I went there, Friday, 12-19-14. The place was busy but the service was prompt. Our waitress Sarah was most enchanting, she took our drink order and then we ordered our food. I had the French onion soup and my sweetie had lobster bisque. Both were excellent. My wife ordered the shaved steak sandwich with onion rings, I... More

We were in the area for an Oktoberfest and wanted to meet up with some friends who live relatively nearby. Our friends suggested this place as being a fun stop. I had some personal reservations when I pulled into the parking lot. It was jam, packed and pretty chaotic. I figured that we would have a very long wait for... More

Food was consistently good and reasonably priced. The selection of food and drinks are one of the best in the area. Especially for beer drinkers, the amount of different beers and ales to chose from can be staggering. We always end out meal with the world 's smallest sundae. With the amount of great food you get with each entree,... More

With the expansion of the bar and the four season room this place is happening, I love going there when you can go out on the deck and hang out with friends.

I always enjoy eating at the E-Town TJ's but you have to contend with a loud atmosphere. The new dining area is a little better. Friendly wait staff and attentive to you needs. My favorite is the lobster bisque, always hot and of course the rhino fries which are covered in cheese. I recommend it for its casual atmosphere and... More

Rockwells has a selection of upscale bar and grille food. They have several appetizers and deserts that are excellent. I also highly recommend the "skillet steak tips". If it is nice out you must eat on their Huge deck, it is a great place to eat and relax

One of the most institutional Holiday meals I have ever had. Corn was tough and had little flavor. Turkey was breast meat pressed together. Frozen pumpkin pie..... Worth $6 not $15. Never again!!

On our way from Lancaster to Pittsburgh, we stopped in a Elizabethtown for lunch. This tavern is owed by 2 brothers. This is a great restaurant. Large beer selection. There were 6 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. We started with soup. I had the signature baked tomato soup. Others had the potato soup and lobster bisque. All... More

My wife and I and another couple were staying at the Holiday Inn Express off Rt. 283 after a day of sightseeing and we asked the person at the front desk for restaurant suggestions. They gave us a map and one of the places was T J Rockwells so we decided to try it. It is off the main highway... More
