Typical American food will taste good here: appetizers, burgers, etc... don't go for anything Thai , etc.. I know its' the trend for restaurants to put stir fry's and exotic foods on the menu but if you can't do it well don't do it.

Always receive good food with a lot of variety on the menu. Great for eating outside. Service can be slow so don't go if you're in a hurry.

Been here many times through out the years. Always good service, good food. large menu. We never go on a week end. Place gets packed, especially when deck is open. Highly recommend, Every one I know really has good things to say about it.

When you pull up you'll think it's way too busy but they have an enormous capacity so go on in. It's not fancy but nice, airy, and well kept. The food is very good - nothing very unique but their preparations are very good (example, the grilled cheese is on a hearty wheat bread with multiple types of cheese). They... More

The food is always good and the service is quick most of the time except when they are extremely packed. The wait can be long sometimes but the food is still always good. We do go to TJ Rockwell's often.

The building and expansion of the outside deck has over taken the property and has made parking very tight. The food is good and the people are friendly. Outside is always full, but we have never had to wait more than a few minutes.

Parking is a nightmare. They gave us very generous, reasonably priced portions of mediocre food. Our waitress was the worst and clearly is in the wrong line of work. She tried but she just kept getting everything wrong and I'm not exaggerating. I don't even hold the horrible service against the restaurant. The food just wasn't good enough to merit... More

Horrible dining experience. A group of 5 of us took our son out to dinner here for his 21st birthday. Things couldn't have gone worse. I called ahead to ask about pricing for their seafood buffet - This was their first day serving this for 2014 season. We went early to beat crowds didn't help service was still horrible and... More
