We had a lovely Mother' Day dinner last Sunday. Overall the service and food were very good. We sat at the bar for some pre-dinner drinks and the bartender took the time to explain the various libations to us - all of which were delicious.

We sat at a table on the 'patio' in front and our waitress was both attentive and non-intrusive. We ordered the Crispy Calamari for a starter and I had the Louisiana-Style Blackened Rockfish, my wife the Twin Maine Petite Lobster Tails and her mother the San Francisco Cioppino! All of which were excellent together with a bottle of Flor de Campo Pinot Noir.

Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

Great Mother's Day lunch! My Mom had never been and now you are her new favorite place! Food was perfectly cooked, service was very quick and efficient. And the the Louisiana bread pudding was amazing! Thank you for helping me make her day special! We plan on coming back and bringing more family to try your restaurant out very soon! Don't change a thing! You are perfect!

I have been celebrating Mother’s Day at Rock’n Fish since 13 years. We had the friendliest staff this time ever. They were attentive to our tradition and honored our wishes to be by the window. Super friendly new manager, great service and good food. The oysters were a bit too small yet it didn’t dampen our spirits. We will be back. Keep up the good work

This was our first time in and we were running a little late and they still had a table for us. The place was hopping and I would have requested a table outside had I known what the set up looked like. Our waiteress was great and the food was outstanding. We will definitely be back.

Rock n fish was great. The area is a little congested because it’s right next to the pier but other than that it’s great.

Never disappoints. Took out of town guests to our favorite place for a pre-mother's day brunch (to show off the food and Downtown MB), and it was great. Bottomless blood orange mimosas and very yummy bloody mary's started our meal, and the huevos rancheros, crab cake benedict, fish and chips and salads were great. Everyone loved it. All these years and we didn't even know they had brunch! Our people had a hard time parking on a beautiful Saturday, and the hostess was kind about our reservation and changed it by a half hour for us. Gregory entertained us at the bar and was super cool. Can't wait to go back, but will have to have a day free so that I can sleep off the delicious mimosas again!

I have only been here a few times but I have enjoyed every one of them. I made a reservation, however, they did not seat us on time. We had to wait additional 15-20 minutes, however, our server Heather made up for it by giving us a complimentary appetizer. That showed me that they valued my time.

The crab cakes, salmon, New Orleans style shrimp and fish and chips were fabulous! Everything was tasty and well worth it. The only drawback, if you will, was the fries were cold. But she brought us some hot fries as soon as we brought it to her attention. The service was excellent and Heather was very friendly. We have never been disappointed and we will be back!

The food is generally good and the atmosphere, though a bit noisy (it is a rock-n-roll restaurant after all), is casual and inviting. Be careful ordering mussels, you just might get a mouthful of sand. Ordered the fish and chips and linguine del mar. The fried fish and cole slaw were both excellent. The fries are typical. The linguine was good, with the only downside being the unwashed, sand-filled mussels.
