Back again; 2 1/2 years later. Quiet and simple. Not elegant, but you have the choice for either a very grown up dinner or a nice, informal meal. The service staff continue to be welcoming and competent. A nice, short menu with choices. Sensible portions

Took my family there for Mother's Day. They have a simple and varied Sunday brunch menu. Our food was served cold and my daughter's poached eggs were undercooked. The french toast and sausage gravy lacked much flavor. Not sure if I would go there again...More

Brisket didn't even require a knife. Loved the sprouts. Try the bacon wrapped meatloaf. I enjoyed this restaurant for the flavor and variety of foods; different from other restaurants with originality in the dishes it serves.

I'd written Rockfish off after several disappointing visits for lunch or brunch, finally returned for a dinner last week & was delighted! Scallops over acorn squash purée topped with crispy fried kale---yum!
