The overall experience was very enjoyable. It was out first time and from the beginning appetizers of brussel sprouts and calamari & salads to our main courses of salmon and crab cakes everything was amazing. We will definitely be back.

My dining partner and I both ordered the Shrimp Provençale. I ordered the clam chowder as my side, while my dining partner ordered a salad. The clam chowder was very good, and the salad was excellent.
The main dishes were more problematic; one was served on the cold side of lukewarm and had to be returned to the kitchen for a warm-up. Our server also appeared to be overburdened.

We took my sister to Rocky’s to celebrate her birthday. We had a lovely table by the fireplace. Our service was exceptional and our food was delicious. We were pleasantly surprised that even though we ordered the Early Bird Dinners that the portions were very generous. We look forward to returning to Rocky’s

We have frequented Rocky’s several times over the last few months.
In general we have had good food and fairly consistent service.
Our last experience was not as satisfying.
We were seated in the room at the front of the restaurant, we initially were given a table next to a very large family party including young children.
Before sitting down we asked the hostess if we could move to a table slightly further away and she obliged us without hesitation.
The room itself is not as nice as other areas of the restaurant, bare bones seating without tablecloths or even placemats on the bare wooden tables. We have usually been able to avoid this part of the restaurant.
The food was good, my husband ordered a dinner he has enjoyed a few times and enjoyed it once again.
I ordered a filet and requested it medium or what they call it when it would be pink inside.
When our food was brought to us the waitress requested that I cut it to check if it was satisfactory.
Unfortunately the meat was more medium rare and she took it back to be cooked more.
When she returned with my plate my husband was half done with his dinner even though he was eating slowly as to be able to eat with me.
Once again I was asked to cut the steak and I did so and it was fine.
Unfortunately by this time my dinner looked rather messy and my husband was close to finished.
My meal was still tasty, I ended until taking half of it home as I was ready to leave.
Shortly after I received my meal people had left and we were the only people left in the area. Our reservation had been 6:00pm so it wasn’t late and we felt strange being there by ourselves.
Additionally the staff began rearranging tables and prepping the area for the following day.
This was mainly done by two of the waitstaff , one of whom was speaking very loudly, some of the conversation concerned their upcoming schedules and other comments which had nothing to do with their jobs.
Our dining experience was therefore far from ideal.

We celebrated a birthday with whitefish and salmon entrees. Both were very good, although I thought the whitefish was a bit over seasoned. The bread and vegetables were excellent, as usual. We were sorry they were out of scrod, as that's our favorite entree. Our server Paige was friendly and attentive. We'll be back again (and again).

The restaurant didn’t have a table ready so we accepted a high top table which we had to wait to get cleaned off. This particular table is waited on by the bar tenders. I do not like this, cause when it gets busy the high top tables get pushed to the side. This is exactly what happened. Took forever for our drinks, we finished our appetizers before the warm bread came. The excuse was that it was in the oven but we saw probably a dozen other servers come out with bread. Also at the end of the meal when we asked for a box, she asked if we could box it ourselves. I’m guessing cause she was busy.

Overall I am glad I had a gift card for this meal. I don’t see my wife and I returning.

Thank you for the review we are working on correcting this. Sometimes in the people business things do not work out and it takes guest letting us know, just as you did. Sorry for your experience but we have corrected the matter. Tim Patino General Manager

Table spacing was a little to close. Food was excellent but the rice was a bit too soggy. It's been a couple of years since we were there last. We will return but hopefully they remove a few tables and open it up some.

We had reservations for NYE. We have enjoyed a good meal here several times in the past but this was a big disappointment. We were seated within a reasonable time for a reservation on NYE. Unfortunately the service we received at the table was poor and my wife’s food was terrible. We arrived before the table next to us and they had seen their server several times throughout their meal and they were done way before us. We barely saw our server. My wife ordered the pomegranate champagne from the server when we were at the table and after she didn’t receive it for 20 minutes I went to the bar and got it for her. Also my wife ordered the chicken Oscar. The Oscar part was good but the chicken was rubbery. My wife had me try the chicken to confirm that the chicken was rubbery and it was terrible. I spit it out immediately. The asparagus was cold as well. When our server showed up she apologized and took the chicken back and offered to get her something different but At that point the meal was a big bummer. The server did tell me that the manager would come over and talk to us about the meal The manager never showed up to apologize. The server offered us a free dessert and at that time I asked where the manager was and she said she didn’t show up I said nope. At that point we had enough and paid our bill and left. My wife didn’t want me to make a scene since we were with my parents.
Finally when we got home my wife called to speak to the manager and she apologized and blamed the server and said the server never told her. So who really knows who is telling the truth. Overall a disappointing experience and meal.

Thanks for the review and heads up we clearly didn't finish the year out well for you two and we do apologize. I can assure you these sort of things do not happen that often but I wish they never did. Due to the holiday catching up with the server and manager took a few days but I can tell you they didn't communicate quick enough or respond appropriately but realize now the importance of this and how we failed your holiday dinner. Thank you, would like to send you a gift card if possible Tim GM

Food was outstanding! It was New Year’s Eve, so Rocky’s was very busy. We had a reservation, and we were seated on time. We had a table for two, and it was very cozy. The noise level was no problem at all. Our waitress was very professional, and took care of all our needs in a timely manner. The food was received in a timely manner too. My wife and I were very pleased with our choice of Rocky’s for dinner.

Wife and I always enjoy dining at Rockey's and this time was no exception. We love the whitefish and the coleslaw but all other dishes we have had are equally well prepared and tastey.

Rockey's has been our restaurant of choice for many years. We take friends there without any worry because we know the food is always very good.

My wife and I went for lunch recently for our first visit to Rocky’s. We had read the reviews and decided to give it a try. The food was very good! I had the filet and my wife had the beef tips. We both really enjoyed the house salad and our server was also excellent! We would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will be back! Definitely not in the realm of a Fleming’s or Ruth Chris but also not as pricey which makes it a nice place to visit a bit more often.
