A small group of friends

a group of 9 stopped in on a Saturday at 300 pm we were seated promptly. Drink orders taken, and arrived as food orders were placed. Not a long wait, food arrived at the same time. I got a taco salad, very good, size also good fit the price, and split a lobster taco with 2 others. Also good... read more

This place gets packed often, and it has more to do with the location and the huge outdoor deck than the quality of the food. Don't get me wrong, the food isn't bad by any means, it's just not that special. I actually don't care much for their huge deck. For one, it bounces when you walk on it, so... More

I begin by saying I know this place well as I live about a half mile from the restaurant. This is a popular place although my husband and I have NEVER figured out why. We have eaten here a number of times over the years always hoping that things will improve. Again tonight we had a gift certificate that we... More

We needed a place open beyond 9 pm, which is tough in this area, & Rockwell's was open until 11 pm. We had 5 college guys to feed & ate there 2 nights. Everyone enjoyed there meals with comments from very good to great. Most sandwiches run $8.50. I'd eat here again w/o thinking twice - good food, nice atmosphere,... More

Visited today for the first time for lunch. I ordered the jumbo lump crab cakes, served on a bed of rice and with green pea pods that had not been properly prepared. The end of the stem was still attached to each bean, so I had to pull them off myself as I ate the beans. That is just laziness... More

We called 2 hours early to get a seat. When arriving parking lot is full to the max just like waiting area inside. Table was not ready right on time but within a few minutes of promise. It really didn't matter we never really minded to wait. The staff and patrons were some of the most friendly and welcoming of... More

I like it here although I try really hard to go at non-peak times. It can be really loud. But,.. The food is good, the portions are enormous. The folks are friendly. Definately not your health food place. But if you are craving an appetizer of fries, cheese, and bacon big enough to feed a family of four this is... More

We had a nice evening with good friends and good food and spirits.....was very busy and a little pricey but it was a nice evening. For me, I would have been fine to eat then leave and go to the Moose Lodge for our nightcap(s). You can't beat the prices there and there are good people at a Moose Lodge,... More
