We had the Sunday brunch and celebrated two birthdays. I failed to mention that we needed a table (for a wheelchair), but we were accommodated. The staff seemed a little annoyed. Our waitress was excellent and the food was abundant. I would not get the seafood omelet again since the eggs were dry and lacked flavor. I always enjoy this restaurant during lunchtime.

Our server, Kathy was WONDERFUL!!!! In fact we will specifically ask for her section in the future.

But when I arrived for our reservations approached the desk, all three girls stood there and stared at me. I said " I have reservations for 6:30PM" and again they just looked at me. I said my last name. Then a lady came over to me and said that " you are not allowed to bring homemade stuff into this restaurant". I said "okay sorry". And she finally took me to our table. I understand if that is a policy, but I had no idea and felt very awkward as I was coming into the restaurant rather than feeling welcome. Sorta put a damper on our evening, but Kathy did try to make up for it!!! She was really awesome and deserves a kudos!

Just wanted to make you aware so that maybe next time you can approach a patron a little different if they did screw up and bring in homemade baked good for a birthday celebration.

thanks

Celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary, which I noted on the reservation and we were seated in a booth near the bar. The restaurant wasn’t half full at 5pm on a cold and rainy Sunday evening. The bartender had 14 guest at the bar and had to wait on us and three other booths. She was overwhelmed and shouldn’t have been placed in that predicament, but our food was good and hot.

We drove two hours to meet family for a Birthday lunch and were not disappointed. We found RockBass Grill through an online search had never been there before but we can't wait for an excuse to make a return trip! The food and service was exceptional. Our server made our meal very special.

Perhaps they should purchase more wine glasses. I was presented with a dripping wet wine glass which contained merlot. The water was running down the glass into the wine. The server said, "sorry it's wet, we ran out of glasses and had to wash some." Not okay! Otherwise, the food was hot, flavorful and nice sized portions.

Warm, worn, cozy, very impressive. All positives. The food was outstanding!! View was beautiful. This was our first time here and we were pleasantly surprised! Felt like we were on a getaway instead of here at home. It’s hard to find a local non-chain restaurant that has all this in a relaxed atmosphere.

Rock Bass Grill is consistently a fine place to go for dinner. The menu has lots of options and the view of the Susquehanna River and the Harrisburg skyline is lovely at night. As the noise level was moderate, we had no problem conversing. I ordered the trout, which was delicious. My friend ordered one of the appetizers and a small salad. We were both quite pleased with our choices.

Food was good. Waitress was no where to be found for at least 29 mins before we even ordered drinks or our meal. She was not very attentive. Did not offer to refill coffee. Overall experience was good even with the lack of good service.

We met with friends for lunch and sat for almost 2 hours after paying our bill and talked, uninterrupted by staff. It was so pleasant as we are only in town once a year. Our lunches were very good and perfect portions. Our server was very nice to us!

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Have never had a bad meal. I usually always get fish but decided to try the filet this time and wasn't disappointed at all. Had sauteed mushrooms with it. It practically melted in your mouth and was cooked perfectly. I will definitely have it again. The baked potato was so big I asked the waitress to bring me a box before I even started eating and cut it in half. Can't wait to go again.

We had a reservation, were seated and after about 10 min , no waitress yet, another couple was seated behind us, and another 5 min went by, no sign of a waitress to even take our drink order, finally a waitress appears only to serve the couple behind us first!! She then comes to our table and tells us “sorry, the bartender was to be your waitress but she said she’s too busy”!!!!! You would think that if you have a reservation that the restaurant would make sure there is coverage at said table!! And they weren’t even busy!! It took a good 45 min to get our food and it was luke warm and sub-par!! We didn’t even finish our meals!! Almost two hours later and a bill of $78.00 ,$93.00 with tip because it wasn’t our waitresses fault, we were left feeling completely ripped off and will never go back! This was our first and last time dining at Rock Bass. So disappointing.

The rating was split between my husband and I. I had the stuffed flounder, sweet potato casserole and cucumber salad. Everything was delicious! However, my husband had some kind of steak (not sure what it was), cucumber salad and roasted red potatoes(?). He complained to me that the steak was very tough and grissley. He also said that it appeared as if the potatoes he was served were not red potatoes. For the price he paid for his meal he was not happy. I know he has eaten better steaks at lesser priced steak houses. As for the potatoes, I cannot say. To me they did not look like red potatoes either. As for my meal I was very pleased. Neither one had dessert as we were quite stuffed from all the food we had already eaten.

Never had a bad meal here. Portion sizes are large, so come hungry or commit to a take-out box. Seafood is always fresh and they have the best brunch in town (sticky buns are AMAZING!). Service is good, but waited 10 mins till someone came to take our drink order.
