Very good experience

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... read 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

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

So good, we had in twice in a week! The tropical salad is amazing! I always get it at the beach and haven't been able to find a salad that is matches harpoon Hannah's. The only difference is they have chicken instead of shrimp but it is so good and I'm not salad eater normally. The lobster bisque was also... More

Went while visiting friends in Pa. and had a nice meal. I ordered the Bourbon Burger because of the description. It was tasty but not exactly what I was expecting. The bleu cheese over powered the blackened seasoning to the point that I couldn't tell it was even there. My ordered the Aloha wrap and enjoyed it very much. The... More

Ate on the deck and it was very nice; lots of umbrellas provide ample shade. Friendly and eager server (Matt) who was attentive and courteous. I had the stir-fry which was very tasty; the crab soup was also excellent. Very good food at a very good value.

Although friends seem to like this place I don't. I've never gotten fast service—even when they weren't busy. Last time we sat on the deck. After perusing the drink menu I asked if they served the drink on the cover of the menu. Confusion resulted. They had only basic slushy drinks. Period. My wife enjoyed her meal after it arrived...

We arrived at 9:00 and didn't have to wait to sit on the deck; the place was dead! Our drinks took too long to arrive, so did our appetizers of crab soup (which had like no crab) and rhino fries. We waited at least 20 minutes for apps. Then it took forever for our food to come out as well,... More

Visiting a relative in nearby Masonic Village needed place for dinner nearby. Heard pickings in E-town were ok, but Rockwell's was good. When we arrived we were encouraged by full parking lot and thought here comes big wait. Nope. There is an enormous deck and half inside outside area. It was like entering an island get away. Mood rising. Draft... More
