Rocktown Bites provides a great downtown experience in Harrisonburg. Was back for 30th reunion at JMU and wanted an alternative to the football game. This did not disappoint. Interesting facts about the area and some great food as well. Do not plan on dinner anytime...More

Our leader shared such interesting info about the town. Restaurant owners all had neat stories to tell and were generous with 3 or 4 dishes at each site. A fun afternoon!

Beautiful downtown, personable guide, great food, visits to our tables by owners/managers, well-planned route. What more could one ask? One word of advice; Don't make reservations for dinner that evening unless you want to go an extensive hike immediately afterward and walk it off.
