- OTOpenTable Diner1 review5.0Dined 5 days agoWas in town for a Dodgers game and asked the locals what’s good to eat around us, we were pointed in this direction. I will say, as a chef, RockCreek did not disappoint! Carolina prawns were epic, fin and shell stew was incredible, Thai style mussels were on point. To finish it off, the beignets were the best thing I’ve eaten on my trip here. All in all, if you’re visiting or just haven’t made it here yet, make it point to stop by!
