Ate here on the recommendation of a bartender where we were staying. We started off with the Oyster Rockefeller's and they were excellent. My husband had the Seafood trio? Had scallops shrimp and crab meat. Would recommend. I had the stuffed flounder which was very good. We got dessert to go and it was the biggest piece of coconut cream... More

We went here for dinner on a Friday night, and were so pleased to be seated immediately. I really thought with our timing, we'd have to wait, especially when I saw the restaurant so crowded. They served a delicious corn bread while we waiting for our dinner. My hubs and I split a large ceasar salad, which was perfect, and... More

A local resident recommended Rockafeller's to us, and we are glad we took his advice. We had a window seat overlooking the docks, which was nice. The food was terrific - everything was fresh and cooked perfectly, and the portions were very good. We had asked if the kids' shrimp dinner, which is normally fried, could be grilled and they...

Oh my gosh! Three of us arrived after calling ahead only to be told they "don't take reservations". Okay. Upon arrival we were told there would be a twenty minute wait. Okay. After half an hour or so we inquired. It would be "just a little longer". Okay. At almost one hour of waiting, after watching large parties being seated,... More

Unfortunately I have nothing good to say about this place. The food is as lousy as the service . The oysters were so redicilously small they must be mention in Ripley's believe it or not. The tuna steak was cut from the tail end and therefore full of inedible connective tissue. The crab dip came with stale bread, which was... More

This place was amazing. The views are amazing and the food was wonderful. Very well seasoned and huge portions. The staff was very friendly. The Manager made us feel very welcomed and we can't wait to eat there again. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We came back for a business dinner the night after review 1. This dinner included the Rockefeller Sampler, hushpuppies, and a steak and scallop meal. I thought everything was excellent (except for the green beans) and was surprised with the crab in the hushpuppies.

We were looking for a good seafood restaurant and we found it! A little pricey but well worth it. The server, Brandon, was so courteous and professional without being obsessive. I had the scallops and they were huge and great tasting. Hubby had the yellow fin tuna blackend and teens had salmon and peel and eat shrimp. All were very... More
