I had such an amazing time for my 21st birthday!
We love The Oar House and have never had a bad meal there! We did miss seeing our favorite waiter, Roberto!!
We will be back!! The food, service, and building were wonderful!
My wife & I celebrated our anniversary. The Food and service was great, as always, plenty of people enjoying the establishment as well, but not noisy, we were able to have and enjoy our conversation. Perfect evening!
Great food. Friendly staff. Very efficient
Birthday dinner and it was great.

we like the oar house it is the only really nice upscale restaurant in rockwall. i like the atmosphere.
Slow service good food
As always, never disappoints. We bring our out-of-town family and friends here. They are always impressed.
Always very good.
Katelyn is a superior server. Food was over the top.
We went early for dinner and had requested a larger table and good social distancing for medical reasons. Our request was met with excellence. Caitlin was our server, her service and our food was on point and excellent. We love Oar House!
It was quite full, apparently was at 75%, although to me it looked like 100%.
The food (especially seafood) was outstanding!
The experience itself was wonderful. The food is exquisite, the waitstaff is exceptional. I do not regret going! The only thing that was a bit daunting to me is the (lack of) diversity here. I am new to the area though and come from East Dallas. In that aspect, we felt a little out of place. Lots of the old school cowboys with their wives who are to be seen not heard vibe. Maybe it was just more prominent that night. Either way, it won’t keep me from coming back.
We always come to the Oar House for special occasions! Have been for years! The service and food are always excellent! It is a little pricey but well worth it! I’ve had almost everything on the menu and never been disappointed! Their sauces are amazing!
The 4 of us had fish dishes that were fantastic. There was enough for us to take home. We ate the remainder for lunch and it heated perfectly and was just as good. Everything we have ever had there is delicious.
As always, everything was great!
I love that my husband and I can split an entree. The other couple ordered separately and they split onto 2 checks for us. One of our favorite places. So glad we found the Oar House.
Awesome food and server
Fantastic. Great food and service. Would highly recommend.
A pleasant experience. We have dined several times. We were very pleased.
Great food, calm quiet atmosphere. Attentive wait staff.
The Oar House always has excellent food, excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere!
The service & ambience were immaculate. Servers were very helpful but very invisible, exactly what we like in a restaurant! The way the building was set up allowed for conversations not to carry table to table— loved the quiet atmosphere. Perfect for an intimate date!
My only negative about the experience was the price. Everything else was wonderful!
Our group of 6 loved our waiter and our food!! Thank you!!
The food was OUTSTANDING!!! We actually managed to eat here twice in the same week with different friends. Each meal was prepared well and very good.
Absolutely no social distancing. Two people, 67 and 80 years of age. Waitress was unaware of social distancing rules and reported to Manager. Manager never came over and waitress offered a table in a small room with tables not separated either. We should have left but they had my credit card on file. No where on the Open Table site was there mention of a special menu of $95/person. I love the Oar House but this was a very uncomfortable situation for a lot of money. Food was ok. Not great for the price. Shrimp appetizer was like eating fish bait (really)? Desert (no choice) was a dry mousse cake that was horrible. Chilean sea bass was good. Overall Very disappointing.
New Years Eve
We are Realtors and often take our clients to celebrate a sale at the Oar House! Love the ambiance and food. Our server wasn’t real attentive and after dinner we ordered lattes and a coffee. It took at least 30 minutes to get them. She said it took a long time for the latte machine to warm up?!?!
Christmas Eve and our server Katelyn made it exceptional even though she was working instead of home with family and friends.
Extremely friendly staff. Food is always good. I had the lobster bisque and snapper Rebecca. Both were extremely delicious.
The Oar House is our favorite restaurant. Better than any fancy steakhouse in Dallas!
This restaurant is always top notch. Great, food, drinks and ambiance. Love it and highly recommend. Reservations important during this time if you don't want to wait.
The food and service are incredible. Great place for our anniversary!
First time and it was a place we will return to. Attentive and helpful service
Open door app had a place to put what kind of celebration we were having. Since it was our anniversary, that they put us in a quiet corner and gave us a special treat. I would definitely go back there again. The food was outstanding and the service.
Delicious food and excellent service! My wife wanted a wedge salad but it wasn't on the menu, so I asked if they had a wedge salad on the menu, just in case we missed it. It was not on the menu bu they put one together for her!
Very nice Italian restaurant with good ambience and great food. This is ideal for a date night. The price is fine for the value of the food. My only observation is that they need to distance the tables out a bit more. It was a tad too crowded for our taste. Still, I recommend this restaurant and will eat here again.
