Rock Lobster was an easy walk from our hotel, highly recommended and a great disappointment. Dinner was mediocre and service the absolute worst we have ever experienced. In a place that was not real busy, it took 45 mins to get a glass of wine...More

Our family of 4 (including 2 young children) all loved the Rock Lobster. Laid back yet elegant, if that makes sense. Kid friendly (but also great for couples, friends, etc...), delicious, fresh food, attentive staff and a lovely sunset. Definitely will go back and recommend...More

One of our usual stops during our January trips over the past several years - never disappointing. Their new location has increased the indoor dining room space and the covered patio as well. We had a carafe of sangria, the herb Parmesan crusted grouper with...More

A short walk from our resort (Marriott), this popular Island restaurant was the perfect choice for our first nights meal. Fresh sea food, good service and reasonably priced drinks. While I enjoyed the fish my wife thought that her chicken was amongst the best she...More

Under new management, so be patient. Food is worth it! Casually upscale and cheerful atmosphere. Watermelon feta salad, superlative lobster bisque— tender meat, fresh, amazing depth and spice..., solid calamari, mussels.... so-so fries. Manager is great; chef equally so. Rock Lobster highly recommended.
