I totally enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The food was very good, not great but very good. I found the portions to be a bit on the smaller side, tasty but small, their jumbo shrimp cocktail was undersized for being called jumbo. The dish I had was tasty and its debateable whether I would return or not.I liked the waterside view which made is a bit better.

We went here for Mother's Day Brunch.It was very nice.We ate outside on the deck and had a great view.The Oysters Rockerfeller was a great appetizer.The Crabcake sandwich was delicious and very fresh.My husband got the shrimp and grits.He said they were delicious.I can't wait to go again.The only thing I did not like was the traffic jam getting into the parking lot.I took about 30 minutes just to get the car parked.

My family and I were hoping to eat by the water, and miraculously, we found a table at Rockafeller's. What a fabulous dinner. Our waiter, George, was the most polite, knowledgeable and attentive waiter I've had in a long time. The menu wasn't huge, but had a nice array of choices and everything we ordered was DELICIOUS. (Seafood especially.) The restaurant was crowded but we were served speedily. All in all, it was a great meal with an excellent staff and pleasant atmosphere. Your kids will enjoy, and you will too.

The restaurant seemed small from the size of the exterior, there was nothing really selling it either the decor or the atmosphere, the food was just so so, the staff seemed to be enjoying themselves more than the customers so all in all it wasn`t a `we`ll be back here again soon` experience.

We had a great dinner the other night. The food was wonderful, and the crabcakes were to die for! Our service was wonderful too, Leana was such a sweet young girl. And even with many tables at one time she made us feel right at home. Can't wait to come back next summer, keep up the great work!
