There is ample choice on the menu including seafood, pork and beef options as well as three daily specials. I started with the Mussels Casino appetizer. It was well prepared and delicious. The Sautéed Perch entry is served on a bed of Rice and Spinach and accompanied by a choice of soup of the day. French Onion soup or the house salad may be substituted for a few dollars more. There are nuts used as a garnish in this entrée but the staff are willing to work with you and offer options that will meet your needs. The textures and flavors of the entrée complement one another and make for an enjoyable dining experience.

We went for the all you can eat mussel Thursday special. The mussels were supposed to be steamed with Sherry and butter.
The liquid was flavorless. It was mostly water and maybe butter.
Our waiter Rob was very busy with his tables and he barely spoke a word. He dropped off bread at our table while talking to guests at the next table, no eye contact.
I felt I was bothering him when I asked for spoon. We love Rocky's but this meal and service was a huge disappointment !

We were disappointed by the fact that there were really no good Vegan options, despite checking for them when we made the reservation. Our waitress was very rude when we inquired about them, and never returned to check on our food after it was delivered. This was a very special occasion( my moms 80th) and we were disappointed in the whole experience. If you don't have Vegan items on the menu, please don't tell people you do.

Our experience at Rocky's has generally been good but this time not so good. The Lobster Tails were over-spiced with what tasted like Old Bay, and the service was slow perhaps because they were short handed, not sure, as service has been good in the past. We'll go back as the food is generally quite good.

Met my sister and BIL for lunch to catch up on family news.
The gazpacho was great as were the shrimp tacos. We enjoyed the leisurely pace and never felt that server was anxious for us to finish our lunch and leave.
Glad we chose Rocky's for our meeting place.

The best waiter we have ever had! Food was excellent, so many good choices it was hard to choose. Our meal took longer than expected to come out & the manager came over to explain and offered us a complimentary dessert. This was much appreciated. The only thing they can change would be to dim the lighting over the fireplace area. And add more lighting outside by the door when you exit the restaurant.

Our cousins were visiting from Florida during the recent hurricane (Irene). We brought them to Rocky's and we all had a wonderful dinner and great table conversation while visiting with them following a long period of separation. They complimented us on our choice of restaurant and loved the food and the ambience. The wait staff was friendly and polite and added to our very pleasant evening. Thank you Rocky's!

Our meal was delicious, starting with the hot, doughy bread and ending with lemon sorbet. My mom had the trout and I had the whitefish. The fish was fresh and prepared superbly. My mashed sweet potatoes added variety to the flavors of my meal. The buy-one- get-one-half-off made it a bargain as well. We'll be back!

i dine here OFTEN.....Sunday they were 'off their game' a bit. Lots of waiting, even with a reservation; brussel sprout starter--normally wonderful was returned....to be cooked enough to be able to slice with a knife!! Bean soup, always delicious, was! And the trout was phenomenal. Our staff person was good--just seemed very busy.........and there weren't that many people. Hard to get his attention. All that said: it's still one of our fav spots to go. Can't beat the seafood!

We have made Rocky's our special occasion dining spot for a long time. Our favorite is the sauteed perch, best in Michigan and then topped off with a Saunder's cream puff.

We always eat well at Rocky's! They have a lower-price, early dinner option that draws older people. They currently have lots of local Michigan items on the menu, well-prepared, and healthy. The heirloom tomato and beet salad was very good!

We have eaten at Rocky's for many years and have always been very happy with our food and service. On this occasion however, we waited 45 minutes for our food after the waitress took our order. Also, at 6:30 they were out of the featured chef's special Walleye.

We've visited this restaurant several times but I have to say this was the best-the food was excellent (Michigan specials), and server was pleasant and attentive and the mood seemed very upbeat. If you want an experience that is casual elegance than this is the place for you.

My wife is allergic to eggs and dairy. The sever was informed of this and even said she asked the chef questions. The dinner salad she ordered had bread on it and my wife inquired if the bread had eggs. The server checked and it indeed had eggs in the bread. To which the server took no actions - as they put a food on the dish to which a diner has a food allergy - one who expect they would have taken the entree back and replace it with a fresh plate minus the item to which the diner has a food allergy. Not in this case - the simply had my wife remove the bread from her plate. Normally I would address this with the manager, but we were with my parents (who are in their 80's) and they go to this restaurant often. We did want them to feel embarrassed.
