Good selection. Friendly staff. One of the most reliable VB restaurants for fresh and well prepared seafood with a noise level that is not too high. The crab bisque, crab cakes and oysters are fabulous!

This is my 4th visit in the last 3 years. Each time I noticed that the service is going down hill the quality of the food has declined. It's all hype. Food was cold. Portion size on the decline
Over priced. Will not be back. I have blasted it on social media. My anniversary was completely ruined. That was the last time they will take my money.

We went to Rockafeller's on Dec 23rd for a nice casual diner. As usual, service was prompt and efficient. Understandably, they were running out of a couple items as they were closed on both Dec 24 and 25th. No problem. Upon entering, I saw 2 plates with beautifully prepared fried flounder so I had to have it. Great dinner! My wife's combo crab cake/ fried oyster dinner was also very good, although the oysters were slightly gritty. It's not prime season for oysters. Our she crab soup and Caesar salad were both excellent. We love this place, especially during the off season when we don't have to fight the tourists.
