Did open table reservation for 7 people and we were seated right away when we arrived. Our waitress, Jenn, was very attentive and gave good suggestions on dinner choices. The food was excellent and the portions were very good. Overall great experience!

Meal was rather disappointing. Nice presentation, rather bland in flavor. Fries looked good but were mushy. The server was rather brusque, didn't come back and check on us after the meal came. Didn't ask us if we wanted coffee and dessert. just brought out the dessert tray. Possibly just an off evening. This is our second visit and will be our last.

Server was attentive and nice. We had reservations for 6:30 on a Friday night and got in without a problem. Food was very good, although some of the entrees were a little pricey so we just got burgers. They were fantastic, though. Will definitely return.

We had called ahead since my daughter is vegan and were told that they had the Impossible burger and pasta options. When we arrived, the waitress seemed very put off by our request. Turns out, while they have the impossible burger, it is on a non-vegan bun and they have no bread that is non-vegan. They pasta is not vegan, only the marinara sauce is. They did make a rice and veggie dish that was ok. The seafood was very average, as is the atmosphere and service. Just nothing special at all. Would definitely look elsewhere for seafood.

I made reservations for a Sunday brunch at 10AM for myself and some family to celebrate a birthday. Most of my family lives far away and we try and take turns traveling to get together for some family time and I had been telling my family for a while how fantastic Rockbass does there brunch. This was by far one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in a long time and I’m extremely disappointed at the drop off in quality that has happened. We arrived on time to a hostess who was extremely rude. When we came in a 10AM I was informed they where not prepared yet. Which is fine, they just opened I realize people need a little extra time to gather things together. A few moments later I was barked at and asked if I had reservations and I said yes for 10AM and was told okay and then told to follow her in, she then waved at a table and walked away, highly disappointed and rude. I don’t care if you are not prepared on time but do not treat me like crap because you are in a rush. The waitress came around informed us of specials and we ordered drinks, shortly after placed our order. 50 minutes later our food finally came.... 50 minutes. Which I may not be as upset if it wasn’t for the fact that everyone else who came in after us had already been served and some where already finishing. When the food came out it was not hot, some of the breakfast ham was extremely dried out, but at that point we had all been waiting for almost a hour for it to come out. If it was not for the waitress I would have been a lot more upset but she was really trying her best and I want to mention that she was the only person trying. The hostess staff and I believe it was the manager on duty really seemed to not care at all. Cold food and mostly horrible customer service I don’t know if I will return again. I would not recommend anyone to here again. This was a poor service and your hostess needs to get some manners.

We were greeted and seated quickly, nice setting, approached just as quickly and drinks were ordered and returned promptly. I had ordered the blackened red snapper with Mediterranean tomato salsa. When it arrived didn't seem done. Asked our server to complete the cooking. I recieved a new meal, the peice of fish I had, had a blood line in it making it just inedible so the served me a new meal which was wonderful. Outstanding service, plus the meal was excellent. They way it should be done but by only a few restaurants. Thank you Rock Bass.

If you love fresh fish, you'll love RockBass. Actually all the food is good but when we go there, we focus on ordering the fish. We had business colleagues from out of town and they were impressed with the amount of food we received. When we usually go there, it is typically crowded but this time it was not and it was so much more enjoyable (not having to yell to have a conversation).

Seafood chowder was a great starter, but temperature was not as warm as it could have been, and appeared to have sat under a heat lamp for a short period of time (based on surface texture compared to below the surface). The swordfish was very thin cut and was finished as recommended by the server - a mistake I will never make again as it was dry and over-cooked (or sat under a heat lamp as the service was slow). It was average at best, and thankfully served with an acceptable lemon-dill sauce. My mom - who I took there to celebrate her 82nd birthday - had the grilled Mahi, which, thankfully, was better prepared; however, the mango salsa was not the best. I don't think I will return and have fresh fish in the Winter months. Brussel sprouts side - veggie du jour - was great. The view was nice. If I had not taken my Mom there for a special occasion, the food would have gone back to the chef.

2nd time here. No complaints or negative comments on our experience. I will point out though that, surprisingly, it was low in customer count for a Saturday evening at 6:30/6:45 PM. But there is plenty of competition in the area. Very nice place. Food was hot, delicious and plentiful to be able to take home for next day. Would come again. Hope quality is still there. Only real constructive criticism I would have is to make the booths a bit more sturdy & high back. I was bothered, not enough to complain, by the couple sitting in the booth next to us. It were the booths in the bar section against the wall. When the one person behind me would lean backwards hard or fast, it shook my side of the shared backing and once hit me in the head with hers. She did excuse herself. It just became annoying after a bit, especially when dining. But food was still good.

Super friendly staff from the time we walked in until the time we left. The manager came by and did her obligatory table touch once the main course came, which is always nice. The Ahi tuna was delish! Perfect timing between courses; we didn’t feel rushed at all. Our server (older lady, dark hair) was a sweetheart. We’ll definitely be back.

Server was impersonal and abrupt. Offered no drink refills to any of the table. Checked on a group of 6 maybe twice the entire time. The restaurant was not busy by any means and staffing appeared more than adequate.
Portions were small for the price. Food took too long to bring out as well.
Food quality was good however, except for the bread. The hush puppies were cold and rock hard. The butter was old and tasted odd.
