Waitress was excellent
Food very good

We booked a table for 5:15. I took my son and Mom for dinner to celebrate my son getting on the lacrosse team. I had a waitress that was also the bartender. Blonde hair and glasses. She has also

Food presentation was very nice. Menu specials were very unique and appetizing. We had a large party, and the food took a while to be served- and it wasn’t too busy, so that was the only drawback. Otherwise, we would go again.

It was restaurant week and the restaurant week menu was not impressive. The regular menu was ok.

Great food and ambiance. The hostess told us our table wasn't ready yet when we arrived. After half an hour we inquired again and were told yeah it's open now. She had no intention of letting us know if we hadn't asked again. Our waiter was great though!

Amazing food and service. Love the raw options, the grilled octopus and the lobster roll. It isn't cheap but it is worth it.

Terrible. Our waiter took almost 35 minutes to bring our drinks out. We couldn’t even finish our food because we had a show to be at and despite ordering it with plenty of time it barely came out with time for us to eat. Our waiter was nice but the service was totally terrible. Food was so so. Won’t be back.

Amazing as always! The happy hour specials are enough to fill me up and give me a few leftovers. When they first opened they had a lemon Smith Island cake. Having that back would make our date night even more amazing!

Brought our 96 year old aunt to Rockfish for Valentine's Day because she loves oysters... she LOVED it and wants to come back again soon. Thank you for making a special lady feel extra special.

I must address the loud music that prohibited easy conversation. R u an upscale restaurant or a sports bar? As a frequent visitor to New York i can attest to similar quality at lesser prices. Crab mac and cheese at 28 with no bread or salad. Really? I liked the atmosphere and food was very good. No special entress offered. And no salmon. I think your reputation as a raw bar outweighs the dinner offerings. Doubt I'll return. Too many other restaurant choices in York with better value. Thanks for asking.

We made our first visit to Rockfish on a Saturday evening at 530pm. It was a packed house. We had reservations but our table was still occupied. Sadly, we waited for at least 15 minutes for the people to leave our table, even though another table was already available (and we had a show to catch at 7pm). We were disappointed that we weren't given the first available table rather than wait for ours to be free. The noise level was really loud. The food was delicious and the wait staff was wonderful and pleasant but we felt rushed to get to our show. I would recommend them if you are NOT on a time constraint and only if you're prepared for lots of noise.

Rockfish Public House provides consistently good service! Our Rotary Club meets here on Tuesday evenings. Occasionally a largish group stays after our met for drinks/food and from the time we walk in the door

All of us were very pleased with Denis our server. The food was excellent. It can be a little loud in there due to the acoustics. The soup, salads and meals were great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

All of the food we had was beyond outstanding. Highly recommend the Chicken Chesapeake Nacho appetizer and the Crab Cakes....but everything else we had was equally as tasty and well prepared. Our server Bri was very attentive and friendly. Tables are quite close together and the noise level is quite high. The restaurant serves 5-star food in a pub-like atmosphere and it was just a bit difficult to reconcile the two. We will, however, definitely be heading back. There were many items on the menu that piqued our curiosity.

Everything was great except the oysters. They took much longer than all of the other appetizers our friends got. And they weren’t very good.

Overall, it was a pleasant experience, but I thought the prices were steep and the overall check was just shy of $200 (with tip) for a meal that did not include alcohol or dessert. The waitress was excellent, the service was on point and overall the food was good, but my $32 crab cake had little taste and despite being packed with crab meat, I expected something more flavorful. I’m a Baltimore native and I have yet to find a crab cake in the York area that lives up to my standard. My company enjoyed the Halibut special very much but I’m not sure if the cost is justified in the end.

Oysters were awesome and main entree was even better.
