Tuna did not appear to be a very high grade and was slightly over cooked. This has happened two of the last three times I ordered a rare tuna steak. I'll just start ordering other fish.

Our server came to our table quickly, took our drink orders, and returned with those. She offered to take any appetizer orders, which we gave to her. When we were ready, Katie came over to take out orders. All of the food—soup, calamari, salads, and entrees were delicious. We will go to this restaurant again!

We had a great dinner on Mother's Day. The food was delicious and our server was very polite and attentive.

I’ve eaten here many times and have always enjoyed it. However, on this occasion, several things were disappointing. Most significantly, the Prime Rib was cold. Like, refrigerated-cold in the center. It was as if they pre-cooked it, refrigerated it, and then heated it up to serve it. The rice in the jambalaya was mushy, but otherwise tasted good. I am going to chalk this up to it being busy since it was Mother’s Day, and hopefully my next visit will be better. Our server was very friendly, responsive, and apologetic, and I acknowledge that it wasn’t her fault.

Fish tasted very fishy. I believe it was not fresh. Initial server let me wait 15 minutes and did not show. I suspect she did not want to wait a table with just one person. Thank God that Jeremiah finally waited on me. He was wonderful. However the grouper I ordered was VERY disappointing.

We always enjoy Rockbass, the view of the River is great and the Food never disappoints. Our waitress was friendly and helpful with questions about Menu items. We had 4 different entree's and everyone enjoyed what they had. The restaurant is always clean and the decor makes you feel like you are on a boat.

One word, “Pathetic”. We went there for brunch on Sunday and the service was horrible. Food was barely warm, so it had to be sitting there waiting to be delivered to our table. We asked for extra water and it took 15 minutes to get the water to our table. Then when we FINALLY got our meals which took 40 minutes to arrive after ordering, we asked for extra plates so as to put the insanely pile of potatoes on, the plates did not arrive...then we flagged down another waiter to ask for extra plates...and again no extra plates arrived. So my husband got up and tried to find someone. He found the 2nd waiter whom we had asked for the plates watching the TV on the wall in a room near the bar...UNBELIEVABLE!!! If I had seen this waiter I would of held nothing back, but my husband just found another person to bring us extra plates. The words from our waitress of, “I’ll be right back” was a joke. I should of asked, “what is I’ll be right back in your time?” which is like 15-20 minutes. We will NEVER go back to this restaurant again and my word of mouth will spread the real story to people more then here. The service was unacceptable. The manager of these people should be madder then hell of how people are taken horrible care of at RockBass.

We have been to the Rock bass a few times and it seems each time we go it continues to slide downward in quality. Won't be back until something changes.

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.

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.
