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!

Seven of us went there for lunch and looking at how full the parking lot was, I thought it must be a good place. Even though I had read the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor, I was sure it would be good. We were seated quickly even though there was a Sunday Brunch going on and it was fairly crowded.... More

I have enjoyed the TJ Rockwells in Mechanicsburg many times while on lunch during the work week so I figured the Rockwells in E-town would be perfect for when my family came in from out of town for a visit. Sure, I planned poorly and didn't call ahead until about 30 minutes before we arrived. They confirmed they could put... More

Great place to eat. The ribs were so big thatb I had to take a doggy bag home. I am a big person 300+ and this is the first place that I could not eat a whole rack of ribs.

Very nice place. Clean. Outdoor seating is nice not jammed together. Food was very good. Staff was very good. If you have kids I would it close to the kids area so they can play and you can keep a eye on them.
