Visited the day after Mother's Day about 1pm and the place was nicely busy. We were still able to get a tall table up near the front with an excellent view of the sky divers. My Mom had been the week earlier when the weather was nice and said the big sort of garage door was wide open and they really had good views. The place also has a patio with tables so you can eat right outside.
Service was friendly but not too speedy. At a place where we are there as much to watch the sky divers as eat, no problem for us. I visit Rochelle two or three times a year and would definitely return.
My sister had the burger and gave it 5 stars. My Mom had a cobb salad and I had a blackened chicken salad; both were excellent.

We have been here twice. Our first time was on opening night which was disappointing. We went with another couple and we waited for almost 15 minutes just to get a drink. We finally ordered our food and our friends had to leave after 45 minutes of waiting. We got their order and took it with us. Our food finally came and I had ordered an ice tea only to be told 15 minutes later they had ran out. opening night problems.
Our second visit was just myself and wife. Our experience was much better. We were seated as soon as we came in. The waitress was well versed in what was good and made some suggestions. I ordered fired shrimp. I was surprised to find that they were lightly breaded and pan fried not deep fried. This was the first time I had ever had any shrimp done like this and they were very good. We were in and out of there in about an hour. The place was not as crowded or as busy as opening night. We will be going back again and see what other items to try.
