“Worst service ever!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Always been a favorite until this visit. Servers had worst attitude I've ever seen. We drove 3 hours for ice cream and hot dogs in what used to be one of our favorites in this amazingly nostalgic atmosphere. So sad that the unfriendly staff had to ruin it for us. Waited 30 minutes for an ice cream that never came!

“Fun place to eat.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Soda shop type food. Their hot dogs are pretty good. What makes it great is the old timey atmosphere of a soda shop.

“Just like old times at a Woolworth's counter :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Old fashion counter with the counter foods of yesteryear. My fav was the vanilla Coke soda! The ice cream desserts are huge orders to be shared. First time having a green tomato pickle. It was delicious. Crunchy and sweet and served on the side of all meals.

“Try the ice cream or shakes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

We have visited Rocky's several times, mostly for the ice creams and shakes. The burgers and other food is average. The dining area is very small. The service is lacking during busier times. One side of the store also has clothing, souvenirs, and knick-knacks for sale.

“Great old-fashioned soda fountain items!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Eating area is small and was crowded when we were there. Prices a bit on the high side but their burgers and hot dogs are great! Service was excellent. Really enjoy their old-fashioned sodas and milk shakes. Tip: Their milk shakes are big enough for two.
