We stopped into Rooster Fish for a quick bite in between appointments. When we were seated we told the waitress we had very limited time, and asked it that would be an issue, if things took a while, it would affect what we ordered. My...More

The place is very nicely set up. Plenty of seating available. I don't drink so I can't tell you about the beer but the atmosphere was nice. They have a nice outdoor area where you can play cornhole.

I’ve been going here for years when in town to get their fish tacos and sweet potato fries. It was my 40th birthday and I picked this place out of ALL places to go for lunch just for that meal. After being seated and ordering...More

Based on Trip Advisor, we ate an early dinner here and we're glad we did. We weren't super hungry, so we split one order - a BBQ sandwich - added a side salad, and we had plenty. Pork was tender, sauce okay, and salad was...More

Yes! I got a whole rundown from the wait staff on what was able to be customized. They can certainly accommodate you. The vegan tacos I got could certainly be made with veggie filling instead of the gluteny seitan.
