I stopped for a late lunch because I had heard that the ribs were good. They were good. But the fries were not fresh. There was a good beer selection. But the biggest memory was how cold it was. When I was not eating my hands were in my pocket. I complained to the bartender twice. Her comment was, "oh... More

I have not had a bad meal at Rockwell's. The service has always been good. We haven't eaten outside but it appears that the patio is always busy! The portions are sized decently; not too big and not too small.

This is a large, loud, boring restaurant. It's like eating at a chain or in an airport. Utterly lacking in character. The menu is decidedly dull and predictably huge portions of food you don't want to finish.

Took my Mom here for a belated Mothers Days lunch. Should have went somewhere else. I ordered the chicken salad and soup (french onion), lunch combo. My mother ordered the mushroom and swiss bistro burgers and soup (french onion also), lunch combo. Both of our soups were barely luke warm. My mother received the bisto burgers, but they had cheddar,... More

We have eaten here 5-6 times and had very good experiences each time. The food is not exactly gourmet but excellent none the less. (Does not come out as artistic tiny portions, but who needs over priced artsy food anyway? Really doesn't make it taste any better to me.) No... I must say I have never had a larger salad... More

We have been here several times and the food is okay. The kids like the burgers. We just visited again for lunch and it was one of the most boring meals I have had. The onion soup was so full of bread that it was like mush instead of soup, and it had zero flavor. I ate the cheese off... More
