We have been to Rockwells many times. We always seem to have a good experience! The salads are big, filling, and tasty.

This one of the only restaurants locally that serves good food, Reasonably priced restaurants. They have a bar, and even an out door area in the warmer weather. Staff is friendly and service is good,

This is our family choice when all of us (14) get together for birthdays. They don't take reservations but phone ahead seating is highly suggested especially for large parties, weekend dining or summer time eating. Food is always great. Portions are worth the price, I always get to take some home. I haven't eaten on the deck during the summer... More

Ate a quick lunch after the holiday with the family. All ordered something off the luncheon specials. I ordered the BLT with a crock of the french onion soup. I found the soup lackluster - a bit salty for my palette, stock a bit bland and bread replaced with croutons. BLT was better with crispy bacon - only comment would... More

There was a long wait for even drink orders to be taken. The onion rings came out barely room temperature and we had to wait for plates. The same Kate's were warmer than the onion rings (notice I said warmer, not hotter). Our entrees were just okay. Not sure if I've been out of college long enough to have been... More

I have been there quite often and the starter / appetizers are very plentiful and very good. The business is doubled over the summer with it's very large outside deck. Fridays & Saturdays are OK if you don't mind waiting a while.

The parking lot is always full in this popular site in E-town. From college students to families, you will find consistently good food and a creative menu. Also, a large patio to meet friends and enjoy a meal. Rockwell's is a great addition to the E-town restaurant scene. Enjoy!

Thank Susan E
