From the minute you arrive, you are greeted the most friendly and upbeat staff. It can take a very long time to make a decision, due to the amazing choices on the menu and specials. The food is always outstanding and that’s what keeps bringing us back for over a decade.

Waitress was one of the worst I've had at rockys. She was inattentive and mostly averted her eyes so we couldn't get her attention. Very slow. Waited a long time for drinks and even longer to order. Did not tell us that we got a free dessert for my birthday so we didn't order one. We just felt she wanted us to leave.

Food and service was good. Second time we ate in the main dining room which is very nice but the lightening is so bright. Both times we were told the dimmer was broken. When I made the reservation they asked if it was a special occasion. It was our Anniversary but nothing was offered so I’m not sure why they asked.

went there with a friend for Thanksgiving and had a great time. Didn't get turkey, had the lamb shank-incredible. They did have turkey dinner, but I can get turkey anytime. My friend had the perch and was also very pleased. We also started out with deviled eggs and an order of salmon pate that were both just what was needed for a holiday feast. Our server, Annya was very attentive and pleasant --I hope she was appropriately compensated for working a holiday. Will certainly be back.

We went for thanksgiving dinner. Food (turkey) was excellent. Service was outstanding, with several special requests handled easily. Good choices of food (other entrees available) and wine. Chocolate cream puff for dessert topped it all off.

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 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.
