Rockafeller's has something for everyone and their Early Bird specials are sure to satisfy. Appetizer, entree, and dessert for a great price! It's also quite nice to peer out the windows upon the bay with yachts docked right there. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the area looking for a casual and pleasant experience.

We were at a table for 2, a table of 4 was seated behind us at the same time. A waiter kept going past both of us with no acknowledgement for about 30 minutes plus. We left and went to another close by restaurant where we received excellent service. I don't think I have ever been so ignored by a... More

I was recently invited to a luncheon courtesy of the company I work for, Stihl Inc. celebrating my 10 years of service. I have never been to Rockafellers before, but I heard it was good. The appetizers were very good, especially the oysters. I had the strip steak with crab topping and a rock lobster tail. Everything was very good... More

My family and I were recently out for the weekend riding the bikes at the beach and decided to go visit Rockafeller's for dinner. Not only do you need to try the flounder stuffed with crab meat but the oysters are a great starter. The owner was a sweetheart who not only greeted us but also checked on us throughout... More

I like this restaurant a good deal, but one thing I resent is that in the summer busy season, they insist on parking the car for me when I am quite capable of parking the car myself. Having no choice on the matter after 5:30PM really aggravated me.

No doubt about it - the BEST crabcakes in town! Full of backfin meat, virtually no filler if any! Crisp, fresh, tasty. Reasonably priced. Crowded at times, but worth the wait. Limited sides available, if any, and most meals come with green beans and red potatoes. Waterside, and view is amazing in the evening, night.

We went here with my husband's family for a "long time no see gathering." It was a perfect place to reconnect. The view was gorgeous and the food was not disappointing. The menu had most of any type of seafood you can imagine, and it was cooked perfectly. Thank you Nathan for putting up with all of our chatting, laughing,... More
