“Unique decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I went especially to try the hamburgers and I was not disappointed
I tried the fried fish mmm
Check it out online, you will learn more about the restaurant.

My wife took a soup, and ask for a basket of bread (she had to pay extra for that :o() )

Will certainly come back.

“Great Apps.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Love their appetizers. Deep fried bacon is to die for! Desserts are also a must have such as the krispy kreme donut bread pudding. The ice cream is always a hit too. Love the atmosphere and location as well. Love bringing friends and family from out of town to this place. We always have great service here as well.Try the fig burger. It's also excellenct.

“Love Eating in the Kilns!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Came here on a quiet Tuesday evening. The staff was very friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable about their menu and bar selections. Every aspect of the meal was wonderful; tasty appetizers (love the olives!), delicious salads and expertly prepared sandwiches. The icing on top is an opportunity to have your meal in one of the old pottery kilns! It makes for a very intimate evening for your dinner party. It forget that your not the only people there.

“A nice afternoon meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I've gone to The Rookwood now and then over the past 30 years. It has always been inconsistent. The last visit there has convinced me it is on the way back up. It is a unique building. A nice place in Mt Adams that also has its own parking. Food was fresh with generous portions. Service was good. Will definitely go back more frequently.

“First time won't be the last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Dinner at The Rookwood was a real surprise. I hadn't heard much about the place, but it was charming, the people were nice and the food was great. I have one caution: Beware the pork belly sandwich. I didn't know it was possible to overdose on bacon, but I think I did. Loved it though!
