The pizzas and pasta at the Rock cafe are great. You may choose to dine inside at the bar (where sometimes there is live music) or outside among the boulders in the patio.

As stated by another reviewer, the facade is very deceiving, The lower level and piana bar is a bit understated; however, the upper levels (tree house restaurant) is both unique and interesting with several levels bullt into the old tree with surrounding rocks and waterfalls. Our food was excellent. One member of our group had the Anegada lobster which was exceptional.

First of all, the outside setting of the restaurant within the large rocks and water is exceptional and I mean exceptional. The Treehouse which is a separate restaurant above looks even more spectacular. From the road, you have no idea what awaits you when you cross through the bar and piano bar.

We had a big lunch that day at Hog Heaven and wanted to try the Anegada lobster ( ave 1.5 lbs). We asked if we could split it with a salad and drinks. Waitress was not impressed and made it quite awkward. That said, she did split both the salad and the lobster and delivered it nicely. The salad was very good and the lobster was exceptional. It was a little pricy but the quality justified the price.

There was live entertainment that night in the form of Morris Mark. He was great ... Told some interesting stories and played all requests including a great James Taylor cover. A bit of an island legend we are told.

At the end of the night, the bill came and it had a15% service charge on it. Given there was only two of us, I thought that was a little strange. At payment time, I asked if the tip was already included and was given a vague answer that it was up to me. I was planning to give her a higher tip for splitting the meal in two and did but it left a sour taste in my mouth.

All in all, I would recommend this place, the atmosphere is awesome. The food and and entertainment were excellent. Service meh!

When we arrived for our meal, there was a restaurant full of patrons with no food. There was a table of 30 right next to us, and kids running all over the place. Despite the fact that the menu was upscale and expensive. Would not go back.

Delightful meal. Beautiful setting, which is basically a series of decks and rocks with water effects at several levels. The owners have clearly given thought to the ambience as well as the food. Good italian food, which seems an odd choice for the islands. All of us had various pasta dishes, and all were very good. Server was very funny and fun. Good choice if you want a nice setting away from the water or want a break from normal island food.
