Menu was limited since they were closing for the season in a week. Got the fried rockfish sub, fish was thin and a little dried out.

Last night before they closed so had a more limited menu but was fine. We had fast service and the food was good. Would love to come back when it's warmer and sit outside! They have a large outside seating area. (I forgot they are all about the Beatles... so that is was all that was playing) Cherry Limeade 'Crush'... More

The service was haphazard. No silverware - had to get from the other table. The waiter didn't bother to inform us that part of the side items were unavailable. Too late!! Also, the tea was Not drinkable . The restaurant was dirty. The windows , floors and tables were filthy. Save your money if you want to view Beatles items.... More

We hadn't planned on eating at Rock Fish, but glad that we did. We wanted to listen to some blues at the park. So we tried to get reservations at a restaurant closer to our hotel. When we called they said that they don't take reservations for parties of 2. They didn't open till 5:30 & we arrived a little... More

Was so looking forward to an evening of good food surrounded by Beatles memorabilia. Our waitress unfortunately seemed uninterested in being there. The food wasn't what we expected. Odd menu. We asked several questions about some of the dishes and we were told that they don't sell much of a couple of them. We should have had drinks instead. We'll... More

The service is indeed as slow as all of the previous Travelers have stated. Although our server was very nice and personable, it should never take 25 minutes for a refill on soda. We ordered a burger, crab cake sandwich, and the crab dip. It was all below average. We only dined here because it was a chilly, wet night... More

My husband was desperately wanting to try this place because of this dish. We finally went to try it. We happened to get there right at Happy Hour so we ordered drinks. Someone here made the comment that they were strong, and they were right! Wonderful! We did get the lobster mac and cheese, and yes, it was wonderful. We... More

Slow staff, strong drinks, average food. For the price we should be bragging about the food but we are not. We arrived 20 minutes before the place started filling up and the staff was slow, we had to stop a waiter to ask for a menu. The drinks are made strong the way they should be! This would be a...

The decor is nice as are the staff. My wife and I were not at all impressed with the food. My burger was ok but the coleslaw they served me had a nasty spoiled taste. My wife ordered the Crabcake Sandwich. Aside from crumbling to pieces on the first bite, it appeared to be made from minced or shredded crab... More

We ate here while strolling the board walk for a stop on our way to williamsburgh VA. Loved it! First of all it has a ton of BEATLES and plays all the music of my favorite band ever! I had delicious fish tacos with coconut rice (delicious) and black beans. Very good lunch special for $7.99. My wife had the... More
