RockBass Grill Ratings and Reviews
Food was good but service very slow. Large group slowed kitchen and our server couldn't keep up with her large number of tables. No coffee or dessert offered. Didn't check back in on us after food was served to see how we were doing.
I would return but not on a weekend.
We’ve been here numerous times and even had our first date here over 7 years ago. The last few times we’ve eaten here, we have been unimpressed by the service and food quality. Fried foods cooked in oil that isn’t hot enough will be soggy, over cooked and just not tasty. Other food items just weren’t well prepared. Server never returned to check on us - another glass of wine would have been great. I don’t think we will be going back. There are too many other (better) options in the area at this price point.
We used to love this place, that's why my husband and I picked it for a "date night". We were so disappointed. The crab pretzel was not even warm, and neither of us even tasted crab. My husband got jumbalia and it didn't have shrimp in it. My mahi mahi was chewy/over cooked and I didn't get my second side. The server wasn't too bad. Not the best way to end a night that we wanted to enjoy. Wish it was as good as it used to be.
Was time for a nice night out so we returned to Rock Bass. We were quickly seated in one of the window-side booths (as requested via Opentable). The server rushed us a little to select drinks and meals, but we could live with it. Fresh bread was provided - nice touch. We started with the crab dip - very nice, though my wife enjoyed it more than I did. Entrees arrived promptly. My wife considers herself a crab cake expert and enjoyed her's very much. I had the blackened scallop special served with risotto. The pairing worked very well, especially with a neutral chardonnay as the risotto calmed the blackened seasoning before each sip. The scallops were excellent. We decided against dessert, but did have after dinner drinks. I asked for a bar menu and was provided with the general menu. Apparently they don't have a bar menu. My wife enjoyed an her Irish coffee. I had to ask what liqueurs were available. Overall, the experience was very nice. A busy table adjacent to ours complete with a dozen kids was the only distraction. Nice night out.
we decided to go the seafood route. My wife had the broiled scallops and I had the fried seafood platter ( i usually go broiled but wanted a change) both were very good. Martinis were very good as well. Since our meals were large we did not have room for dessert.
our waitress was Sharon and she was excellent. She was patient as we took our time ordering while enjoying our martinis, served our food in a professional manner and was very pleasant as we took care of our check.
Rock Bass Grill is on the Susquehanna River, directly across from Harrisburg, and provides guests with an option to sit on the deck or inside with large glass windows open to the deck and river. It's a great place for a business lunch away from the downtown regulars, and also nice for spring/summer/fall happy hours on the river. Was there for a business lunch and wasn't disappointed. We were met on entry and our reservation quickly acknowledged - and seated at a booth held for us by the windows with a view of the river and City Island. The Grill features a raw bar with raw oysters, mussels and clams - options change daily with the market - and a good variety of fish and seafood options on the menu. This trip we had the Maryland Crab Soup, fish tacos (large portions of Mahi Mahi with a chipotle sauce-nice!) and a fish sandwich - again good large portions!
The food was excellent. I had a few choices in mind and the waitress was honest and told me which dishes she recommended based upon other diners comments. The atmosphere was nice as well. The surf and turf was a bit pricey. They had a large number of fresh catch options. I would recommend for a special occasion.
Last night my gf and I had the soup special, Shrimp Corn Chowder. They should have called it Corn Chowder, between our two bowls we each had one small piece of shrimp.
Next was my gf dinner, she ordered the jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab what she got were small shrimp with some type of crab looking dip all in a casserole bowl, not jumbo shrimp or crab meat as we are both custom to. On top of it since the shrimp were buried in the crab dip stuff they should have removed the shell from the tail. The chef actually stopped by our table to ask how our food was and I told him. He said the guys who serve the soup into the bowls should mix it up before serving. His explanation for the jumbo shrimp was that he has argued with the owners for many years about how "stuffed jumbo shrimp" should be served and the owner tells him to do it the way we had the dish. Since my gf didn't eat most of the "stuffed shrimp" I would have least expected a refund for the incorrect way they advertised the dish but all he said was hopefully they can make it up to us next time and I'm thinking I want you to make it up to us now for a disappointing dinner, but nothing. I doubt I will go back even though we have had great food in the past but all it takes is one bad experience.
My girlfriend and I went to RockBass Grill to celebrate our anniversary. Neither one of us had ever been there before. It was really a romantic setting and it was quiet. We went in the evening and sat at a booth which had a perfect view of outside. The food was great. It was really a wonderful place to be. It is a great place for couples to dine.
The meals we had were excellent. We had the fresh catch of the day. I had swordfish with lemon choice butter, broiled with a salad and rice pilaf, my wife had the tilapia, wood grilled. Appetizer was the crab dip with pretzel sticks and chips. Service was very attentive. Always enjoy the view of the river.
Overall the experience was very good. My entree of Scallops had a grittiness to them. My husbands red snapper was excellent. The rest of our food was excellent. Our waiter was busy but attentive. The booth behind ours was very loud. But we will go back again. Love the river view. The hostess was sweet also.
We had friends of over 20 years from Vt. staying with us and I had heard great things about the restaurant. Vermont is a serious foodie hot spot, as is Montreal, so I wanted to show them something nice! From the moment we entered till we departed things were great! Our waitress was a sweety and absolutely on top of things ! We had the Fried Oysters and Calamari as starters and they were excellent with nice dipping sauces, not the standard old bottled stuff you see far too often! We had their special of the day Scampi and Pasta, Chicken Breast and I had the 14oz. Rib Eye. I asked for my steak rare and when it came to the table our server " Rachel" ? had me check it before departing and it was not only cooked perfectly but seasoned beautifully! It was one if not the best meal and time we have had in the area since we moved here 2 years ago from Vt. We will return, again and again !
Very busy for a Tuesday evening; service was a little slow, but still attentive. Didn't see a bread basket until our dinner arrived (we love the hush puppies, so asked about it) - apparently due to the busy kitchen situation, they ran out, but still provided further into our meal. Waitress knew that dinner took longer than the norm to get to us and offered free dessert, which we declined to due to being completely stuffed. A total go-to for birthdays and anniversaries in our family. Rock Bass never disappoints.
