I love the crab bisque. The ahi tuna is delicious! I haven't had anything there that wasn't great. I love the jalapeño hush puppies and the creamed corn side dish is a personal favorite. My fiancé's favorite dish was the soup sampler. I love the decor. They have the fish wearing Santa hats! Servers are attentive and quick to refill... More

We came here with family. My sister was celebrating her 20th wedding anniversary. We ordered the Rockfish Platter with grilled shrimp, fried oysters and crayfish tails. The food was very good. I've never seen fried oysters as large as Rockfish's. The waiter said they come from the north Pacific ocean. Price was reasonable. The jalapeno hush puppies were excellent. We... More

Sorry to say the quality of food has slipped over the years. Rockfish used to be a favorite, but my most recent visit (I haven't been for about 2 years) was very disappointing. We went on a Thursday evening, and the place was empty, not a good sign. The food was greasy, and not flavorful. More like fast food than... More

A friend and I had lunch here and thought the food was pretty good. I had the fried shrimp basket that came with fries and 2 hush puppies and coleslaw. The shrimp were very good and tasted fresh and the tartar and cocktail sauce were both excellent. Didn't care for the hush puppies or the coleslaw. The coleslaw is vinegar... More

This place is very relaxed and has excellent food with really good service. The whole staff really went out of there way to make sure we had excellent care, even though they were short handed. Everyone pitched in. It was a good value, and I would certainly recommend it to all.

The 3 in our party ate an early Wed. evening dinner and received good food and service. Our waiter Bruce did a good job correcting a kitchen error. They sent out fries with the Po-Boy shrimp when my hubby had ordered the creamed corn instead of fries. I had Po-Boy catfish with pecan sweet potatoes. The side vegetables at Rockfish... More
