This is my favorite restaurant in Roanoke. We had the fried green tomatoes, fried oysters, the grouper with grits, and the salmon. Every bite was delicious and cooked to perfection. The oysters were delicate and crispy. The grouper we moist and cooked perfectly. The service...More

Been to Rockfish many times and reviewed it in the past, but had to do so again. My wife and I have been to nearly every restaurant in Roanoke over the last 30 years, and Roanoke has many fine ones. But Rockfish may be our...More

Rockfish has special evenings and we decided to go for their Italian wine tasting. It was a lovely evening and the wines and hostess were delightful. You could buy a bottle if you had a favorite ($13-$18, quite reasonable). I decided to have two appetizers...More

On a road trip from NY to San Antonio we stopped in town for the night. Walking around, a couple recommended Rockfish so we went there. After being seated, I could hear the wait staff discussing who'd take our table. After a few minutes someone...More

Took my family there for Mother's Day. They have a simple and varied Sunday brunch menu. Our food was served cold and my daughter's poached eggs were undercooked. The french toast and sausage gravy lacked much flavor. Not sure if I would go there again...More
