“Great Atmosphere...service lacking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

Rocky's has good ice cream and a great atmosphere...but sometimes the service is very slow...even when it isn't particularly busy.

Still, always worth a trip while in Brevard during the summers.

“A step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

What is not to like about an ole tyme soda shop - especially if you are old enough to remember when. It really takes you back when you walk down the street in Brevard, which is quaint in its own rights, and step through the door of an replica 1900's soda shop. And then to order a vanilla coke and not have the waitress say "WHAT??" is just nice. Food was great and atmosphere superb

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

Rocky's Soda Shop is an old fashioned soda fountain that specializes in hot dogs and milkshakes and we tried both and were not disappointed. There are several condiments that you can have on your hot dog and we got the full treatment - chili, cheese, slaw and onions and it was great. The chocolate milkshake did not take a backseat either! It was creamy and delicious. I agree with another reviewer that it was somewhat cramped as we sat at a table in an aisleway but even on a busy Saturday afternoon, it was not a problem and the food more than made up for the occasional bumping that occurred. The shop is adjacent and connected to a store that has clothing and other interesting items to browse, either before or after you eat. So if you want to revisit the soda fountains of the past, Rocky's in Brevard will definitely providy you that experience.
