Having passed this place many times before, we decided to drop in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The soups are amazing, and the menu was varied. I had the she crab scoop an grouper fingers off the appetizer menu, and it was a meal! Lots of character around in room. The bartender was very helpful and makes a great... More

Local establishment with great food and wonderful staff. The food and service was so good that we visited twice for dinner during a 5 day stay in MB.

My hubby and I always come to Rockefellers when we are in this area. We live in NC. As a matter of fact, I am writing this review from my dinner table. We always get the seafood platter fried which comes out hot and in a timely manner. The service has always been great and we love love the oyster... More

I was traveling with friends on vacation. We decided to go to Rockefellers Raw Oyster Bar for Happy Hour. We ordered the shrimp cocktail. We were surprised when we received seven shrimp. Here we are right on the coast and we were served frozen shrimp, thawed. We finished our drink and moved on. It seems it is a local dive... More

I'm sorry you got some really cold shrimp, but they are steamed and put in the fridge to chill down. They are not precooked and thawed as you thought. I hope when you are back you will come back and try them again. I wish you had said something to your server so we could have helped the situation at... More

My wife and I stopped here after driving up from Charleston. We each had the Buffalo Shrimp and and cold adult beverage 😋. The shrimp were excellent with just enough spice to make it interesting. We will be stopping here again before we leave.
