5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Anyone going to Harbour Island must go to Rock House for dinner at least one time. Make sure to get a reservation.

“New policies at Rock House Restaurant?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I tried to make a reservation for a dinner at the Rock House restaurant during our next trip to Harbour Island, and I was informed that terrace seating (you know, the tables outside with the "great" view) are available only to in-house customers of the hotel. Good to know for those of you planning to include the Rock House as a restaurant to dine at during your trips to Briland. The terrace view is the only positive that separates the Rock House from other high-end restaurants on the island. I will likely stop visiting the Rock House for dinner on our trips - the cost of the meal ($250+ with just drinks, not a bottle of wine) is exorbitant and completely unnecessary if you factor in an indoor table, not a terrace table.

Also, on our last trip to Harbour Island, the Rock House lost our reservation for dinner, also leaving us to dine at an indoor table, which was less than ideal and not what was confirmed over the phone when I made the reservation. Things seem to be slipping through the cracks. I wouldn't recommend to friends.

“Wonderful Place for Dinner and at Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have stayed her in the past and had a wonderful experience. On this trip we only had dinner here, as we were traveling with our child. The experience, staff, and food were as we remembered, and we will be returning on our future trips to Harbour Island.

“One of the premier places to dine on Harbour Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Have dined here several times over the years visiting Harbour Island. In my view, it is not to be missed. The staff is gracious, charming and attentive. The food is exquisite - beautifully prepared and presented. The location is on the bay side of the island, up atop a hill, which provides a gorgeous view. Did I mention they prepare a first-class Martini? Very nice wine list to boot. Again, don't miss dining here while you're visiting Harbour Island.

Lovely location and terrific food but very expensive. Seafood fresh and well prepared. Service top notch. Even gave recommendations for other restaurants to try.
