I'll keep it short, but one of the worst dining experiences ever. Apparently the cook was brand new... servers apologized repeatedly, but it took more than an hour from the time we ordered to get even part of our order. It came out in pieces...More

I live in the relative area and sincerely want it, as well as other local businesses, to do well. But it is not that great. We went for some drinks around 10 pm. Bartender was nice. Server kind of ignored us. Crowd was irregular, kind...More

Over the past several years we have watched the Rockton Inns food go from EXCELLENT to TERRIBLE. We ate their last night and will never be back. For the second time in the past month our food was served cold. Although we tried different selections...More

We hadn't been to this restaurant in several years and recently bought a Groupon to see if anything had changed since our last visit. NOPE ... it's still a dreary old building with no decor or nice seating to match the current pricing. The food...More
