“Evenings are always busy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

Turn off your phone, tablet, or PC and go grab your keys. Get your butt over to Rockwell's. Great beer selection and delicious food. Happy hours might be the best in the area. And Sundays in the fall are all about football. (Be sure to ask your server about their specials).

“Good food, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

Staying nearby for a baseball tournament, the hotel recommended this restaurant as one of the better in the area, so we decided to try it. After a 2 minute wait (it was Friday night) we were seated out on the patio, which was huge. They also have a nice large inside area if that's your preference. The menu had everything and everything we ordered was good. The service was excellent as well. I will definitely go back next time I am in the area.

“Quick service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

The wait staff were personable and pretty fast. The menu could have been better with some healthier fare on it, but if you like bar-type food, this is the place. We want to try their burgers next time, as they sound good on the menu.

“Good ribs but too cold to enjoy the place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

I stopped for a late lunch because I had heard that the ribs were good. They were good. But the fries were not fresh. There was a good beer selection. But the biggest memory was how cold it was. When I was not eating my hands were in my pocket. I complained to the bartender twice. Her comment was, "oh really." Someone should watch the thermostat.
