We visited this restaurant on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was full and had a positive vibe. Get a window table if you can. I recommend ordering one of the day's specials.

Sunday brunch is a local's favorite, with specially priced Bloody Mary's and Mimosas, as well as brunch priced meals. Valet... More

We eat here all the time and we love it. I had the softshell crabs when they were in season and they were the best I've ever had. Big and meaty. Service is also good.

Came in with seven of my family members for my fathers birthday and was promptly seated by a window during lunch time. All eight of us ordered different specialty alcoholic drinks and the bartender managed to make all eight delicious but also quickly. Highly recommend the rockafeller relaxer. Ben B was our server and although he seemed young he was... More

I visit Rockafeller's several times a year during the summer season and the food and service are consistently good. They have a wide variety of seafood options and an excellent bar. The staff and management always seem genuinely interested in their customer's experience and food quality. My favorite entrees include the steamed shrimp (perfectly cooked, seasoned and served piping hot),... More
