The food was just okay- even though we ordered the featured entrees (walleye and crab). Our appetizer never came. They ran out of clam chowder by 7:30PM on a Saturday. Service was also just okay. This was our first visit to Rocky's, and we likely won't return.

Negatives:
-My wife thought the gazpacho had more too much onion in it.
-Not many selections for the low carb diner.
-I asked for extra blue cheese dressing and crumbles on my blackened steak wedge salad which I didn’t get.

Positives:
+Blackened steak was prepared well, perfectly cooked and tender.

Rocky's (and Steve & Rocky's) are always great local food spots. Only one, slight disappointment is the lack of a local beer selection; one craft choice isn't good enough with so many great local beers available.

I went to Rocky's with two friends to celebrate Mother's Day. Our waitress was attentive, kind, and all our meals were excellent, The atmosphere is pleasant and the noise level was quiet so it was easy to talk. We were not rushed even though the restaurant was busy.

Our walleye and perch dishes were amazing! And Previn is a fantastic waiter. Usually what tops off the entire experience at a place like this is the server you end up with, especially during a busy holiday. I’d go back just to sit at Previn’s table; he’s that good. And maybe to experience that Hummingbird cake again too!

Have always enjoyed Rocky’s so we booked it for Mother’s Day. The only criticism we had was the limited menu. Nowhere was it mentioned. They left off many of our favorites. Food was great as always, service excellent but choices were disappointing.

We were at Rocky's to celebrate the anniversary of our first date 13 years ago. For the first ten years we returned every year. Three years ago we stopped returning due to a stale menu. We returned this year hoping for a refreshed menu, no such luck. The menu appeared to be the same as our first date 13 years ago. We won't be back.

Great food and great service, as usual. If you come more that once or twice in a year, I would recommend their "Celebrated Guest" card as a worthy investment.

We had late reservations for dinner because people were arriving from 3 states and we wanted to be sure everyone had plenty of time for travel. In spite of the careful planning, 2 members of the party were delayed more than an hour. The staff was more than gracious as we waited. Ben, our server, was attentive without being intrusive. The meals were perfect and extra pineapple salsa was provided on request. The house salad is amazing with the maple vinaigrette dressing.

One member of the party has extensive restaurant experience and he claimed that the kitchen staff were "artists". High praise from an educated palate that has dined internationally.

Great meal, great friends. Thank You Rocky's of Northville for a memorable dining experience and many precious memories of the evening to treasure!

Perhaps I'm an anomoly given all the positive reviews. I was looking forward to dining here given the feedback by so many clients. My experience, however, was less than positive. The food in my opinion was just adequate. My dish, which I requested with white sauce instead of the red sauce was simply a half pound of butter and pasta noodles. I've done several reviews, and nothing has come close to saying the dish I had was disgusting. Extremely disappointed, especially for the price. Perhaps it was an off evening for the Chef, or, perhaps that is simply how they serve their food. Regardless, I would never go back, nor would I encourage anyone else to visit. There are far too many other restaurants in the area whose food and ambiance are significantly better.

We were seated at 5:45pm on a Saturday night and it took 15 minutes to get a drink. Our appetizer of oysters on the half shell were fantastic!
Our dinner order wasn't taken until 7:05pm, yup, you read that correctly. We did not get to finish our meal because we had to leave by 7:45pm to make our movie at 8pm. One of our entrees was potato crusted white fish. The fish was very nice, however we were extremely surprised to see hash browns that looked to be from a frozen bag from the grocery store as the supposed potato. All in all I was very disappointed and probably will not be back.

Stacy the server did an amazing job. Was very knowledgeable in the menu and explaining the details of each dish in question. We enjoyed the filet, the haddock, the sal de mer, broiled shrimp, and the wolf fish. Everything was delicious and came to the table hot. Most of us chose the salad and the butternut squash soup. We ended up sharing dessert since we were too full. Creme brûlée, tart cherry cobbler, and ice cream. It was an amazing evening. The only downside to the evening was the noise level. Extremely loud could hardly have a conversation with each other and Stacy had a difficult time hearing us.

Went for dinner around 4:30. Place was quiet as we were there early for dinner. Two members of the party order the braised short ribs but after having our appetizers the waitress came out and said they were out of the short ribs. Not sure why they didn’t know but it would have been nice to know as we sat down to browse the menu. Otherwise the food was tasty and the service was wonderful.

Another great time at Rocky's with friends. We met for happy hour and had the calamari and muscles as appetizers. Got were excellent. No one pressured us to leave because we were there for some time after we paid our bill. Again, another great find for us and we will certainly be coming again.

This reservation was made for my parents 65th anniversary. Rocky's has been a favorite restaurant for special occasions for them for many years.
The food was excellent, the staff very accommodating and everything was great for this special occasion.
Would highly recommend for a special occasion or just a nice dinner out.

The bread is super delicious. The food portions are more than expected, and he food is very tasty. The fries are great but a bit salty. The service and pampering are great but could be a bit quicker. Nice location, friendly crew. Good place to visit.
