We both had the crabcake which was lump crabmeat not filler along with bacon wrapped grilled shrimp. Both were great and very filling since it included red potatoes... More

The food was awesome. Above standard breakfast fare - wonderful french toast, wonderful bloody marys - but the hushpuppies we had as an appetizer were to die for! The best I've ever had. Also, our waiter, Bill, was great - so much fun!

Be sure to ask for Bill as your waiter. He is always attentive and recommends the best food and drinks in the restaurant. His good humor and fun loving spirit make the experience a delight. The food is very good. For starters pick the corn bread with real butter. Yum. We had the early bird special, 14.99, that includes your... More

We love Sunday brunch at Rockafeller's. The food is delicious and the prices are affordable. The wait staff is very friendly and you get your orders promptly. The view of the inlet is very nice too!

We were a large group of 28 that they were able to accommodate. Since we were so large we had our own server dedicated to us. He did an excellent job and was able to cater to everyone's requests and questions. My kids each had the i pound of crab legs and loved them. I had the Waterman's trio and... More

Visited Rockafeller's for a nice seafood meal with my husband & I was not disappointed. We've visited Rockafeller's in the past but we had forgotten about this nice spot!! We went on Saturday around 7pm. The restaurant was busy but not crowded. We actually walked in & got a table immediately. The food was fresh & the service was great.... More
