Nice family owned business that has been there a while, it looks a little "dated" but added to the appeal. There was a family type interaction with staff which was nice to see. We had two different seafood dinners and both were excellently cooked and sides very good.

Generally have a great experience here but was underwhelmed recently. Service was very slow (they were busy), however, ordered a Jack Daniels Manhattan which was more vermouth the bourbon and didn't finish it. Couldn't catch our waitress to complain because she was so busy. This is unusual for Rockys as they normally perform up to expectation and will give them a pass this time.

I ordered the pork chop, which I have had before, and it was so tough and dry I asked the waitress for a sharper knife - hint hint - and what she gave me was a bigger knife. It didn’t make the pork chop more tender or tasty. Also my wife ordered the potatoe encrusted whitefish, which she has enjoyed before, and she said it was not as firm or tasty as she recalled. The green beans on both our plates were too eldentia.

The food was good as it usually is as we are frequent diners. We enjoy heir Gazpacho Soup, Martha Vineyards Salad, Shrimp Casino and White Fish. The issues we ran into on our most recent visit was
mainly the service. It is true that when our waitress first appeared we ordered our drinks but said we were not ready to order, however, I asked for rolls. When she brought the drinks, I asked again for rolls, to no avail. She appeared again asking if we were ready to order we were just beginning to look at the menu. Once we ordered we finally received the rolls. The meal itself was good, when it arrived. I had requested a carryout order which I ordered and it took a very long time. It was 2 salads and gazpacho soup. I had requested bread, she said, of course, and of course, it was not in the bag when I arrived home. When we first ordered drinks we requested separate bills, when the bill finally arrived, it was on one bill. Therefore, the redo of the bill took a very long time. It subsequently took a long time to pick up the credit cards and return them. The restaurant was not crowded it was after 1:15 when we ordered, it did not look as if they were understaffed but there was some issue, that's for sure. I will try o avid the waitress we had the next time we go in. I choose not to mention the waitress's name hoping she was just having a bad day and this is not an ongoing problem.

Some of the tables were a bit too close together. At one point I could hear their conversation better than the one at my own table. The screaming children and parents who were ignoring them didn’t help the atmosphere. I know that can’t be helped by the restaurant, but it will make a difference when I make the next restaurant choice.

My wife and I ate here for our 10 year anniversary. The ambiance reminded me of a scene from a 90's movie. They worked hard to create a nicer place to eat but everyone showed up in their Hawaiian shirts and cargo shorts. To each is their own I guess.
The music playing in the background was today's country hits which isn't what you would expect to find at a Steak/Raw restaurant. I found that odd and mildly distracting.

The best part of the experience was the food. I enjoyed a few of their raw oysters while my wife loved her side salad. We both enjoyed our meals (salmon and short ribs) as it was prepared and presented well. For the price, I was expecting something special but that wasn't there. It was good but not special.

I would eat at Rocky's again because the food was good but I now know what to expect and what not to expect.

Went here on a Saturday. Stopped at the bar before our reservations. The drinks were made well and quickly. Once seated, we got a couple appetizers, the brussel sprouts and the Oysters Rockefeller. They were both cooked well. Our dinners were served only after we had finished apps and were all fantastic. Our waitress was very attentive. We had a wonderful time and will return in the future.

This is a very consistent establishment. While the food selection is limited, when compared to other area restaurants, everything is always prepared in a manner that is comparable to much more expensive restaurants. The bar and raw bar are also exceptional and it is usually easy to get a reservation through Open Table. The staff is very attentive and helpful and the noise levels are low enough to enable conversations with others st the table.

Normally one of our favorite places. However on last visit we had a surly waitress and a very bad table where the servers kept bumping our guest. The food is very good, with a menu as interesting as their other location (Steve and Rocky’s) in Novi.

Our server was great, in fact we left more than a 20% tip, however it was evident that this establishment does not serve a lot of people of other ethnic groups. Some of the customers stared at us to the point of discomfort. Glad we had a chance to try it, but not planning on going back.

We were seated by the hostess. Then no one came to our table for over 10 minutes. No water or no menus.
Finally another server asked if anyone said hi yet or had come to the table. We said no and then she said ok she was saying hi and our server would be there soon. Our server came and everything else went pretty good. I asked for more water but she forget. When I caught her again I got a refill but she didn't refill anyone else and they wanted it. We had a table of four and were there right at 5:00pm before it got too busy. I don't know why when you do the online reservation they ask if it is a special occasion. I wrote birthday online and mentioned to the server it was my birthday but I didn't even get a "Happy Birthday" from her. I am not sure the restaurant has any special birthday offer but if they do we didn't receive it. I don't if the server had too many tables to take care but the service was just ok. The food was excellent especially the blueberry pie for dessert!

Our waitress, Monday July 16 at 6pm (I forgot her name) was a gem!!! She was very helpful in explaining food choices, meeting the cooking needs of my friend (fried instead of baked fish). We were seated by the window, making it a great atmosphere, lighting, for conversation and reading the menu. This is my third time at Rocky's, second time for dinner. Enjoyed the whole experience.
