A nice restaurant with great views. The hush puppies and the fried shrimp were very good. The crab cakes were average. Overall it was a good meal.

Basic seafood fare, nothing out of the ordinary. Good oysters Rockefeller app and the hush puppies are great..best around. Dinner was good, pretty generic. Good place for large groups and a good kid menu. Super nice staff.

I was initially a little skeptical when I read the reviews. However, my kids wanted to eat someplace on the water and outside. So this fit the bill. We sat in the second floor porch and we were immediately greeted by very friendly staff. Our waiter was wonderful, very accommodating. We ate at about 5pm so we all ordered off... More

If you love seafood then you'll love Rockafeller's! We love the Oysters Rockafeller. Food is always great. If you go during the dinner rush you might have to wait a bit to be seated but its always worth it. Service is good, food is good and atmosphere is fun!

Our party of eleven made a reservation for 6pm and we were seated upstairs , where we could see out into the inlet. We ordered appetizers,... More

Server was friendly, crab dip was excellent. Unfortunately the entree-stuffed flounder was over cooked.
