Service takes forever & manager is just as rude as his untrained staff. Took 20 minutes to get drink refills with no apology - just an "I forgot" from waitress. Someone from the kitchen brought out our appetizer after 45 minutes but took it away without any explanation and never returned. Complained to manager who again didn't apologize & said... More

Good food with a great wait staff. Even on a busy Friday night they were able to move people through.

Great food, great atmosphere, reasonable pricing. Service usually very good. A little off the beaten path, but well worth it. Amazing deck to sit on when the weather is good.

Good beer selection and amazing onion rings. I think the bartender was overwhelmed with the workload but even so his lack of attention to detail like not giving us an extra spoon when we were sharing the soup and not offering a napkin, etc., gave us the feeling that he would have been just as happy if we were not...

We tried this location for the first time last night and the wait was an hour long, dining area we sat in noisy but the food good and hot. We got the lobster bisque very tasty and hot. Also tried the captain krabby dip also very good. We chose the Rhino, which is an appetizer, as our meal. We had... More

I had high hopes based on recommendations and reviews. I was mostly let down, unfortunately. We shared the crab dip and rhino fries with friends. The fries were good but the crab dip was less than thrilling. It was served with soft pretzels which was nice but the dip was overpowered with some kind of spice and herb. Boyfriend got... More

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
