We've eaten here about 6 times - both in season and off. Off season waits are manageable and they will let you do a 1/2 call ahead - think probably no during the busy summer months. They also do takeout. Predictable and efficient service. Swordfish special with risotto excellent, fish and chips a tad greasy but nice firm fresh cod,... More

For the type of place and atmosphere, we felt that the menu was very overpriced. we ordered the PEI mussels for $16 and I bet didn't get even 16 mussels. They were tasty but quite pricey. Same thing with the crusted cod, which was good yet small but $29 for cod! My son had the margherita pizza which was appropriately... More

Rock Harbor is a favorite! The atmosphere is warm and fun. the staff is friendly and helpful. The drinks are great and interesting. The pizza from the wood oven is delicious. The menu changes frequently and always good. There is sometimes a wait but that is because others like this place too!

Another good restaurant to go to in Orleans. Went out with friends and all 4 of us loved our meals. From burgers to pizza to cod cakes everyone was happy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good tap selection. Will definitely go back

Do not write many reviews in recent years, but cannot pass this one up. Décor is reminiscent of an old Lobster Shack, in the good sense. Service, by genuine and friendly staff outstanding. Small, but excellent wine list choices, reasonably priced for these days. My choice was the Hanger steak, only one to a steer, was by far one of... More

We live in the neighborhood so come here regularly. The menu is varied, food consistently good, drinks and bar service excellent, wait staff friendly and knowledgable, and atmosphere lively. Chuck, the owner, is around practically 24/7 to make certain his customers stay happy. Try the wild mushroom pizza or one of the fish dishes. Oh...and the sweet potato fries are... More
