Food and service were excellent, the menus and food quality have really improved over past few years. Food quality is truly like any of the fine dinning option in the Metro area. Keep it up

We tried Rockwoods for the first time and were very impressed. Food was delicious, especially the filet, brisket, BBQ beans, and grasshopper pie. Waitress was very attentive and we really enjoyed the live music (Greg Scot). Overall, we loved our experience and will be back!

COVID makes everything weird now. Went to Rockwoods expecting to get my favorite meal, only to find out that they no longer have it on the menu. I got the seafood pasta instead and it was terrible. I was so disappointed. It was bland and the menu options were very limited. Bring back the Champagne Chicken pasta dish! I should have gotten a burger.

We had an amazing night! This was our first time eating at Rockwoods. Our server, I believe her name was mikayla or michelle something with an M, was really nice and quick! The food was amazing, I had the cajun pasta, one of the best pasta dishes I've had when eating out! I couldn't recommend this place more!

Usually we have great overall experience. But this week the steak was off. And the kids meals were forgotten, then delayed. For a bill of over $130; we have come to expect a bit more from Rockwoods.

Due to COVID-19, we purposely make a reservation for 3:00 p.m. There were 3 tables with patrons in the section we were seated. The waitress was very friendly and pleasant. She gave us suggestions from the menu. The food was excellent - huge portions and very tasty. On the way out the cook thanked us for visiting and I replied that the food was great and thank you!

The waitress was kind of short with us (like we were an inconvenience), not impressed by her. Perhaps she was busy, but that certainly doesn’t excuse her curt behavior. Conversely, the bus person was extremely kind and helpful. I don’t want to judge the entire experience from just one person, but maybe do better in choosing who is a wait person and who is not. This is the person that represents your restaurant for the majority of your customer’s visit, and they should be nice and welcoming to your establishment. The host and bus person were excellent. The food came out promptly, which was nice to see. The pizza we ordered was super greasy, to the point of the crust being soggy. The rest of our food was fine.

We enjoy Rockwoods and we were out for a special dinner. We were surprised in the back dining area, closer to the bar, people were later seated right behind us. There is no glass between those booths, so the lack of social distancing was concerning. The food and the server were excellent.

This place is closed. So don’t book dinner here. We arrived for a birthday dinner to find it locked up tight. Bummer. Ruined a special day as we couldn’t find reservations anyplace else last minute!

Got a mile from the restaurant and had to take a 5 mile detour due to road construction. Finally show up at the restaurant and it was closed. Why accept reservations when you’re closed? Especially when the store hours are posted online saying they’re open.

Good was not good. The margarita pizza had so much garlic on it, neither of us could eat it. Wings tasted undercooked/mooshy. We barely ate anything. Then we get the bill and it’s more expensive than the nice place we ate last night that was 5 star worthy.

Honestly one of the most enjoyable meals and evenings I have had in a restaurant in a long time. The food was delicious, the bartenders were so helpful with my order, even waitresses nearby as well. Very clean, organized, spaced out seating yet done thoughtfully so you didn't feel uncomfortably separated , great music and just a nice change to see a restaurant get everything right. Brisket tacos were amazing as well and great music too. Highly recommend this place and worth the drive. Great people and food.

Fun restaurant. Old supper club vibe. The food was fantastic! The 2 specialty drinks I had were also quite good. I’m sure it would have been even better if it weren’t for all of the COVID stuff going on.
