Even though we made reservations 4 hours ahead for our anniversary dinner we kind of expected a nice warm inviting table with some coziness. Instead we were seated at a table for four next to a party for twenty. Seemed loud. When we checked in the host said to another person which I overheard "ok we're screwed" One room had linen on table and we were seated at a table like a cheap chain steak house. Food good but waitress seemed stressed, overworked for her table assignment. But, she was pleasant and polite.

Service was personable, helpful and attentive in other words, outstanding! Food was good but not the quality that I expected base on the referral I received and menu pricing.
We will visit again as everyone has an off night.
Review will be updated after next visit.

Hostess tried to put us in the bar area twice and we had to insist on being in the dining room which at the time was only half full and we had reservations! She was not the friendliest hostess. They were short of help but once we got waited on it went good. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Food was good as usual.

Ordered Black bean soup with no sour cream but it came with sour cream anyways.. Ordered a filet with no onion rings on top.. no vegetables and extra potato. It arrived with onion rings on top, a ton of vegetables and no extra potato.
When the waitress brought it back a second time it still had all the vegetables and no extra potato.

Food was ok not great. Waitress not very attentive. Had to ask for water refills. They should have been filled without asking. Drinks too a very long time to receive. We celebrated 4 bdays. It would have been nice to receive complimentary dessert to help celebrate. The 6 of us could have chose to go anywhere but chose Rockys. I'm very dissapointed.

We were pleasantly surprised by our meals at Rocky's. Our entrees were excellent (walleye and steak). The only thing lacking was the service. Our waitress was a bit on the slow side, but we didn't let it ruin our meal. Nice place for a special dinner.

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.
