    Another wonderful Saturday dinner with my wife. We choose Rocky's for it"s location, great food, fantastic service and because I can make a reservation on Open Table all most any time of the day on Saturday. As we see the day fill and no time to shop and cook I reach for my phone and make a reservation at this great resturant.

    Visited before the theater in Northville and had a fantastic experience. Food and service were exceptional. Only one small negative. No sweet vermouth to make a Manhattan.

    Food was just ok. Service sucked. Wait staff was not very knowledgable. Wine list was minimal. 3 out of 4 food entries requested were "out" . We had to make second and in one case third choices. Our waiter screwed up our bill. When we corrected it, he was ticked. I will never return nor recommend this place. My advice... There are plenty more better places to eat!

    After several visits to Rockys and less than acceptable food and service - this time was a winner!! Our server Lyndsey was fantastic - knowledgable and so friendly. We sat in the Kodiak area which seems by far to be the quietest place to eat. The front room where we started is far too loud and bright for a dinner out. A great neighborhood gem and although an older crowd the food was once again great. We had the perch and the portion was big and prepared perfectly. If you haven't been here in a while - give it a try again - well worth it!!!

    We love eating at Rocky's. While I usually have swordfish or mahi mahi, niether was available. Really wanting fish the server convinced me that the white fish was very mild, so I gave it a try. It was melt in my mouth wonderful. The veggies were crisp tender, the gazpacho fresh tasting for a summer night, and the service attentive but not intrusive. My husband had the perch which he loves. All in all it was a wonderful meal from start to finish!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP

    The restaurant was hosting a special sea food fair offering some specials, I knew because I had received an e-mail ad. When I went there, there was nothing to indicate that the special dishes were being offered at attractive prices and the waiters had to explain to diners who visited the place attracted by the fair. The food was excellent and the service was good, but the management was not up to the task.

    After our last visit I, figured that everything couldn't be that perfect again. Well I was wrong. The food was delicious and the service was once again, outstanding. Our server ,Shanda, was very attentive and made our dining experience extremely enjoyable. She let us relax and enjoy every moment of our meal. You can bet on our next visit we are going to make sure we get Shanda to be our server.

    I would not recommend Rocky's to anyone. The food was mediocre and the service was poor. We had to ask repeatedly for condiments and the Greek salad was ordered with chicken but the chicken was missing. The first excuse was the chef forgot the chicken, when it finally came the excuse was someone else took your salad. Really we could have found an Olga's and had better food!

    Everything that we had to eat was superb; from the bread and soup to the main entree. I can honestly say that the steak that I had was the best steak that I have ever eaten in any restaurant. The waitress was very friendly, personable, and attentive. I will definitely be back and have told several others about my wonderful dining experience at Rocky's.

    We have been here a few times. The seafood is always good and I was very happy with the quality of the steak I had most recently. The staff is knowledgeable and makes great suggestions based on what you tell them your likes and dislikes are. We dine out every weekend and this is one of the restuarants in our regular rotation.

    A loud crash and soup went everywhere. Moving people to different tables. A lot of noise. Restaurant was cold, asked for the air or fan to be turned off, never happened, but all women it the area had on sweaters and jackets while they ate. My daughter ordered her meat medium rare to medium, would prefer medium rare, it came out well done, waited for our waitress to return, she didn't come back until we were done with our food, no one refilled our waters until we were done with our food. Kind of a big disappointment. We were there to celebrate our daughter and son in laws anniversary and left trying to figure out another steak house we could go to after Memorial Day weekend to make up for this dinner.

    Huge place with standard American fare that is reasonably well prepared. Considering that it is a mass production facility, the food is quite good and tasty with fresh ingredients. Service however is below average with wrong orders in both food and drinks being brought forth by spacy wait staff.

    Always forget about Rocky's since I don't drive past it often - yet when we go, always have an excellent meal. Their seafood is fantastic! 6 different dishes ordered from our group - catfish, trout, perch, beef tips, pork and steak - everyone was more than satisfied! (And of course the bread is always delish!!)
