Diner Reviews
  • "Very nice place to eat, well set up... open, so you didn't feel crowded. Had their new Chicken (glazed?) Balsamic, 2 very thin (and small) breasts that lacked any determinable seasoning... placed on a huge helping of mashed red potato's (which were excellent). Would definitely go back, but would try the Haddock the next time."

  • "The order of fish & chips was extrordinarily large! There was enough to feed four people. The soups were excellent. Salads were excellent. Our party of four people all had excellent meals. Beverage selection was excellent. Would highly recommend the restaurant to others. Service was a bit slow because our waiter had too many tables to handle."

  • "i love coming to rock bass on sunday for late lunch or brunh. It's the best place in town, whether you sit outside, in the dining room or at the bar. The servers are all great, but my very favorite is Alexis, she is without a doubt my favorite server."

  • "The service was spot-on, just the right amount of attention to our needs without becoming overbearing. Large variety of oysters which are delicious. The server, Laura was able to offer some great wine and oyster reccomendations. Our window view of the fireworks was perfect."

  • "Took our son here for his birthday. Food and service were both top notch. We had a table by the bar where we had a great view of the river and a TV showing a World Cup soccer match. A plus in both respects."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "On the plus side, the portions were generous, the soup nice and thick, and the view/ambiance was great. Sadly, one of our delivered meals was not what we ordered and it took a great while to return with the correct one--come on, it doesn't take THAT long to make a Cobb Salad. And then, the shrimp on my salad was too spicy, way too much cracked pepper--if I wanted that much heat, I'd have gone to a Cajun restaurant. Our server had a great smile and kept tabs on us quite well. The host/hostesses were friendly. The seating was comfortable and, again, the view could not have been better. Just work on your kitchen staff."

  • "Love bringing guests and out of Towners to Rock Bass Grill for the view and delicious food. If you love brunch, this is the place to go. With options like the seafood omelet or crab eggs Benedict you can't go wrong. (For the less adventurous, they have a large menu and you could easily find something you'll love.)"

  • "We haven't been here for a year -- went back hoping Rock Bass had risen to the next level. Found them to be average at best. This place has such huge potential, but it is stuck in mediocrity. No thanks to a return visit -- used to be one of our favorites."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We had a problem with our open table reservation. It was correct in our email but the restaruant had it for the day before. Interesting since we made the reservation the same morning when dinner with friends was cnaceled due to illness. The restaurant, a local favorite, was great and had a table for us anyway."

  • "Wonderful experience! Took an out of town relative who raved about the good! Ask for Ashley as your waitress, she does an amazing job! You won't be disappointed at the Rock Bass Grill!"

  • "Had gone here for a great Sunday brunch with friends and food was great. Wanted come back for dinner and enjoy the outdoor deck with my husband. Food was great, service was great but atmosphere was the best. Loved the like music coming from their adjacent restaurant and the river view was fantastic."

  • "We sat next to the window overlooking the river. The food preparation was fantastic and the food was delicious."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Always good food. Nice scenic view of the river from the window booths. Booths are roomy and comfortable with seating for up to 6 adults. Service is usually good if it's not too busy. Parking can sometimes be a problem as their main parking is small. There is a larger lot across a main street but that is a shared parking lot with an adjacent restaurant and can also get full at times."

  • "Service was very slow and complained the entire time. The food was bland no seasoning. Clams and mussels not washed properly were still sandy."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Food was delicious although our appetizer was a little overcooked. The main entrees were cooked to perfection and the flavors and spices were delicious. Our waiter was a little flat and seemed very short when he came to check on us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant but be prepared to spend a decent amount of money. Our bill was 125 for 2 people."

  • "The food was delicious and the wait staff was excellent! It was our first time there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was a great way to spend the evening."

  • "I could have made a meal from the Ahi Tuna and Oysters Rockafeller but also had some melt in your mouth huge pan seared scallops."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The best thing about this restaurant is the view of the river and Harrisburg, so is a good place to bring out of town guests. Nice booth window seating. There is a big selection of fish and seafood. The crab dip is very good. Other food was good, but not "fit for foodies"."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Prices are a bit high but understand that the market influences that. Food was good but not great. We ended up with 2 separate servers...one was attentive and the other wasn't. Not sure what that was about. Location is great. River view is great. They sat us near the bar and the crowd was a bit noisy. It was our first time there so our first impression was kind of weak. We may come back for brunch at some point just to try it out."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We went for Sunday brunch, expecting a buffet for around $20 - $25. Instead the brunch was ordered from the menu and waitress-served. The offerings were breakfast items, although the brunch did not start until 11:00 AM. The portions were HUGE, delicious, and very nicely presented. Three adults and one child ate for $54.00, including 3 mixed drinks, coffee and one desert. Not a restaurant I would think of for a late breakfast, but it was great."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "This was a very nice restaurant for the Harrisburg area. Nice view of the river, nice deck seating, great food and very pleasant staff. A lot of plates and glassware was dropped on several occasions during our visit making it a little noisy at times. We had an overall great time and it was a great choice for my wife and I for a date night. "

  • "I have been working in Harrisburg area for several weeks. As a frequent business traveler, I have the opportunity to travel around the country and enjoy the privilege of dining at many outstanding restaurants. Harrisburg is not notably a foodie town. The RockBass Grill was a refreshing departure from my expectations. The service was outstanding and the menu is enticing. Our meals were delicious, well prepared, and nicely presented. If dining with a group and buying by the bottle, the wine list is notable. Otherwise the wine by the glass selection is average."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Rock Bass Grille may be the best combination of great food and a superb view in the Harrisburg Area. I enjoyed the crab imperial and special soup for the day and both were excellent. Service was conscientious and thoughtful, and the waiting area excellent."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Service was a bit slow at the outset after ordering drinks. We allowed 75 minutes for dinner before a show at the Forum, just on the other side of the river in Harrisburg. We got to our seats as the show started. In the future we'll allow 90 minutes. Consistently a favorite spot with friend."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Food not anything fantastic. Stuffed shrimp were small and overcooked. Rib eye very grisly. Waiter not very attentive. Would not go out of my way to eat there again."

  • "Just across the river from the Capitol, the Rock Bass can always be depended upon to serve delicious, quality meals. It has been a regular of mine for entertaining out of town business clients and guests or family special days. "

  • "There were four of us dining, the two pasta dishes were great. I had a steak, my request was for medium (Pink not red), when the steak arrived, part was pink, the other was very rare, I took it home. My daughter ordered the Hoisin Salmon, it was raw through and through, she refused to eat it. The manager removed the Salmon from our bill and I only paid half fare for my steak. We all received free desserts which were great."

  • "One of out favorite restaurants in the area. Clean surroundings nice ambiance and personable staff. Reasonable cost & excellent food. On top of that they honored our Open Table request for river view seating. All in all have never been disappointed at this place. "
