Great service and great good. Highly recommend the buckets of sea food. Our server Trent was fantastic.
I came here with 7 family members, so a a fairly big group. Our waitress was very attentive and we didn't have to wait long for our food to come out. The restaurant was busy/lively, but we could all hear each other talking perfectly fine. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. I ordered the ahi tuna tacos and they were great. Most of the meals contained seafood, but even my cousin who is not a fan, was happy with his chicken sandwich. Also the restaurant is right on the beach so we were able to enjoy a stroll along the pier after dinner.
While on a beach vacation, we decided to take the whole gang to dinner on our night. The grandkids love Mexican food and seafood so this sounded perfect. It was good food and portions are huge. Marissa was a very attentive server. Thank you!
Tables were a bit sticky but the place was casual so we let that slide. Besides our little ones added to the stickiness! Parking is terrible. We parked in the valet around the corner where sign said $4.00 but as it turned out that was for the higher end restaurant in front. We had to pay$20!
Knowing all of this we would go back...lobster bites were yummy!!
I booked a table on line for 6. When we arrived (5min earlier than our reservation) the receptionist told us she didn't know why our accepted on line because they had no room for us and she didn't know what she could do. Mind you she was also very unpleasant!! Finally she says she can seat us but the tables would be seperate... After that we sit and go over the menu... Our waiter comes to take our order and is rushing us and rather irritated that we had questions... The nerve of us to ask which margarita they recommend! I order the spicy cucumber and end up with a regular Cadillac margarita.... Unreal!!! Not a friendly face in the whole place. Not a smile. No customer service. No thank you!!!
We went to Rockin' Lobster for my birthday lunch and enjoyed buckets of lobsters. They are delicious with the most amazing seasoning. So amazing that we bought two bottles to take home to put on our own grilled seafood. The service is really terrific. We were well taken care of by a really nice server who made my birthday lunch extra special by bringing me a fried ice cream. Thank you!!! We will be returning to this terrific restaurant soon!
The food is unique & original (Slipper Lobster) Prices are very high, but it IS the beach. Atmosphere is very friendly. Waitstaff is on their toes & extremely pleasant.
Everything was seasoned to perfection. All the food was so good and the chips and salsa made for a great starter! TVs all around to allow for watching sports. This place will be a must next time I'm in Newport area
It was a Sunday morning and we planned to meet some of our motorcycling friends for lunch. We originally made reservations for 12:45, but got down there earlier. They were able to seat us immediately. Fortunately, our friends got down there early enough to get a parking space because if they hadn't, parking is a mess there at the pier area.
So we sat on the patio, which was nice, but kinda had an alleyway feel to it. Quite a bit of foot traffic, but not much of a view. The table they sat us at was pretty small. It had a bucket in the middle with napkins, utensils, and salt/pepper. There was no way 4 drinks, 4 large plates and everything else would fit on that small table. We had to ask for an extra chair to put the bucket and a few other things on.
We ordered the Tequilla shrimp appetizer that was awesome. They also brought out chips with three different kinds of salsa that were also pretty good. I had the Tres Amigos Tacos, which were three tacos...one carne asada, one shrimp, and one lobster. Those were all very good as well. My g/f had the lobster fajitas tacos, She said her's were very tasty and she liked them.
We got there early enough to beat the lunch crowd, so they were not busy. Our food came out pretty quickly and was all very hot and fresh. It may be weird, but one of the ways I generally rate service is by my drink glass. Today I had water, and I had to ask several times for a refill. I like the waiter/waitress that sees a half full glass and either refills it, or at least asks if you'd like a refill.
Overall, this was a very nice lunch experience. I'd go back, but I'd like to try the Old Town San Diego location next time.
I live in the Bay Area now and every time I get back to OC this is the first place I go! So delicious!!!! Love the flash fried lobster tails
My girl took me for my birthday, and it's always great. It was her and her daughters first time and they really enjoyed it. Only issue is its sooooooo far away and the table they put us at was right in the middle of all the people traffic. Aside from that I would have gave them 5 stars!!! I will be back, I always have fun and get wonderfully delish food...... Deuces!!!
My husband and I choose Rockin Baja Lobster to spend our 30th Valentine's Day for our romantic dinner, we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and the Ryan was a great waiter!! We sat outside and enjoyed the scenery.
I have always loved this place! We come on special occasions and the seafood is awesome ! Endless tortillas and variety of salsa. The servers are GREAT as well. Great Job Rockin Baja Lobster!
My Husband and I have been coming here since we first started dating 16 years ago, regardless of management changes, menu changes they hold true to a relaxed, casual environment with Baja style food. It's like being sun kissed in Mexico on the beach and eating fresh seafood with a Corona in hand. We love it here, and continually visit on every special occasion. We commute an hour with out traffic to enjoy this place... If that doesn't say how pleased we are I don't know what does.
This was my first visit to this restaurant, it was absolutely delicious. I went during Newport Beach restaurant week, what an amazing deal! The seafood tasted exceptional and the dessert was beyond mouthwatering! I can't wait to return for happy hour and taco Tuesday!
Good Mexican seafood, basically prepared & served fresh, friendly neighbourhood service
It was our first time to go there and we could not find the place right away. Even we had GPS.
We made a reservation with Open Table it helped us a lot. I had a window seat which you can see ocean. I guess it was the only one spot with a view in the restaurant. The food was great and we needed two containers to bring leftover to home. Waiting time was about 25 minutes but was not so bad as we had chips and three kinds of salsa for start.
Freshest, most generous portion of crab/lobster/shrimp I've ever had. The "bowl" sized drinks are crazy big and so good.
No need for reservations, this was a seat yourself place. Staff were accommodating and friendly. The food was good just entirely too salty. Would be a good place after a day in the sun.
This restaurant consistently serves the most delicious buckets of lobsters, has the most polite staff and always makes us feel at home. Our lunch was for my Mom's 92nd birthday and she was treated as the special person that she is. Thank you!!!
