Haven't been to Rockwood in sometime. No particular reason just other choices. It was busy the night we went. Service suffered a bit because of it. Food was just ok.

You'd think by looking at the photos, it'd be a great place to have a conversation over dinner. Not so. VERY noisy. The food was good, but wasn't anything that I'd drive for.

Good food, reasonable prices, great service. Ribs burgers and chicken sandwich all tasty. Can swap out fries for a baked potato. Definitely a keeper!

We were invited to dine here with friends. When we got to the host stand we were told we were not allowed to eat there. Our friends are nice people and we had never been there before. The place was empty. Not really sure what brought all this on, but glad for them they are doing well enough to turn... More

This restaurant just happened to offer a hamburger special the night that we arrived. Very large place. Service was very good and there were also drink specials. Parking is close and well lighted. I'd go back.
