Overpriced. Over Crowded. Poor Parking. The only show of its type in Etown makes it allways annoying to get in and relax

I have been back since my last review and am pleased to say we had a great time. Food was much improved and back to what I remember. Some new dishes as well as old favorites still on the menu. Service was prompt and pleasant. Rockwell's is back on our restaurant list! Since they have put on an addition seating... More

Huge place, well patronized by locals at lunch time. Enjoyed our choices of food - salad and soup (French Onion) and tap beers - none local brews (with number of breweries near I'd expect a local brews). Would have liked my beer in a glass rather than plastic. Quick service. Would definitely go again.

This place is pretty much busy and packed all the time. You have to navigate a giant parking lot that's akin to parking at a carnival. They have a spacious bar area inside and their outside seating is sprawling. The facility is clean, well decorated and great atmosphere with outside bars available as well. It's a place that grew with... More

The food is good and was hot. Cole slaw, had better but everyone's tastes buds are different. Worth the stop.

The food is alright, the staff not so much... Depending on where you sit it can be very noisy (the bottom room is horrible).

My wife and I were in area for family business and took a friend to lunch. She knew TJ Rockwells as she and friends go there often. It was our first visit. This is a real nice place. The decor is relaxed and welcoming. At our entry we were greeted by several staff, all who made us very welcome. Food... More

This restaurant offers a relaxed patio dining experience with great music, if you time it right. It has a very large menu with a broad array of items. I ordered the shrimp fajitas and they came with plenty of shrimp and veggies - more than I could eat. Everyone else enjoyed their dinners as well.

I have trouble because of eating restrictions. This was my first visit here and I was delightfully surprised. It is sort of out of the way and the parking lot was full. I would seriously advise reservations! The waiter was very courteous and the food was fixed exactly how I wanted it. I will definitely go back again! Oh and... More
