Reserved with anniversary comments, but they didn’t make us feel special or celebratory at all. Disappointed. Food was mediocre for the prices they charged I expected more.

The shrimp pasta was excellent! My husband had fried grouper and shrimp. He enjoyed his food as well. We definitely could tell the restaurant liked Cincinnati Bengals and any team Cincinnati. The staff were very friendly and courteous.

Had the fried grouper and shrimp. Some of the best fried fish I have every had. Shrimp was almost as good as Vautrot's in Bevil Oaks, TX (and that is saying something!) The pulled pork egg roll was outstanding (one serving is plenty for two).This was our first visit and will definitely return.

Seated us in an uncrowded area where we (6 of us) could hear each other talk--nice. Lee, our server, is the BEST!!! Food was excellent--coming back soon.

Even with short staffing everywhere, Rockfish is excelling!!! Thanks for a great time.

Saw they had Mongomery Inn ribs on the menu so we both ordered them and they were fairly close to the orginals that we have dined on at the actual Montgomery Inn in Ohio. Frank was an excellent server. It was a bit noisy but not excessive. Would go there again whenever we have the urge for the ribs since it's a bit of a drive to Ohio from our home in South Carolina!

Our two fish entrees were excellent and well prepared. That said, a fish dish at $40.00 is a little overpriced, even for Hilton Head.

Our waitress was nice and efficient, but we felt rushed. The restaurant was not that crowded, so I’m not sure why. The food was ok. Very underwhelming.

Are waiter was Josh, very friendly and helpful, they were short staffed, but managed to handle it. I had the jumbo scallops and my wife had Fillet Mignon, both were excellent, drinks were great. Wife's birthday, not in a hurry, we both had a great experience!

The food wasn’t good at all. Hamburger was basically charcoal. Steak was way over cooked and just really tough. Kids chicken was bad too. Only good food we had was the fried shrimp and calamari appetizer. I won’t ever be back. Hopefully just a bad experience for me.

Good was okay. Crab cake was done well. The shrimp had too much Breading, so much so that there was more breading than the size of the shrimp. ,

Everything about our evening was good. The hostess was friendly and we were able to be seated quickly. Our server was also friendly and efficient. All the food items we ordered arrived at the table hot and delicious. The one suggestion I have would be to find a new glass for one of the featured cocktails: it was difficult for our waitress to not slosh a bit of the drink over the side as she got to the table, which made the cute glass it was served in a bit sticky. Another plus - my husband said the ribs were as good as the ones he eats at the original Montgomery Inn!

It seemed there was only one waitress for the entire place . Through no fault of her own we were there 30 minutes before our drink order was taken along with the rest of the order. We did not get our drinks for another 20 minutes after the appetizer and salads had almost been eaten.
The bar area was empty and the bartender was just kindof cleaning up and walking around. It was a poorly run place and the food was just okay.
Not worth the frustration.

Had an absolutely amazing meal. We are on our first family vacation to Hilton Head, it was my mom dad, and my sister that visited this restaurant. We got seated a few minutes after our reservation time after having a drink in the bar. Yet the wait was a little long to get entrees they kept us well hydrated! You could tell the serving staff were under staffed but they rocked it ! Once we got our meals it was well worth the wait ! My mom got the blackened Mahi Mahi with grits and fried green tomatoes which was the special for the night and she loved it. My sister opted for the blackened triggerfish with grits and green beans which she had nothing bad to say about it, all was delicious! My dad just went simple with a wedge salad and coconut shrimp they all had a great taste. I got the jumbo scallops with mushroom risotto and asparagus. Everything was absolutely amazing !!!! I highly recommend this place. It wasn’t a cheap meal but it was definitely worth the money. Another plus was it had a Cincinnati flair since the owner is from Cincy which is fun for us since we are from there. We had an awesome meal and if we are ever back here I would definitely eat here again!

Based on the name of Seafood and Steaks, I was expecting more of a fine dining atmosphere, when in reality, this restaurant has more of a Sports Bar atmosphere. The night we were there, it was packed with Bengal fans watching the game. We sat outside, wanting to take Covid precautions. The outdoor seating overlooks a parking lot and it was not at all appealing, as well as having a table nearby that was smoking and having a few from the indoors come out to take a smoking break. This continued even after I complained about it. On the positive side, their fish special was excellent and the service was excellent as well.

We ended up choosing Rockfish for my girlfriends birthday. We loved the food. She got the seafood pasta and the crabcake. Prices are a little high but pretty on par with a nice dinner in Hilton Head. Our server was so sweet and even threw in a free desert for the birthday girl!

The receptionists were very nice. Our server, Heather, did a nice job handling our party of 6. The ambiance was so so. Our table was located next to an area that was being used to put unused tables and chairs. The food: I ordered Red Snapper with mushroom risotto and asparagus. The fish was good, the risotto was over cooked. The asparagus was yellow, way overcooked and unbeatable. As was the asparagus on fellow diners meals. Some of our party had a better experience, but the overall value was not there.

Salmon dinner delicious. However my seafood pasta was NOT good. Dish was SO over sauced. Pasta not cooked properly, it was one huge lump in the bottom of the plate. The crabmeat was almost undetected due to amount of sauce, which was not good itself. No lumps of crabmeat, just disintegrate shreads that flavored the sauce somewhat. The only redeeming quality was there were a lot of shrimp in the dish. I took visitors for dinner and didn't want to send dish back since I suggested restaurant. The shrimp salad was just ok. Nothing special. My guest said they liked it but think they were just being polite. Service was great. Over priced for quality of food delivered. I would not recommend or return there again.
