Here is a really nice place. Very easy on the eyes and modern in its design. The food is very good and pricey. I did not feel cheated as far as food goes. So, here is the bad stuff and I left this place scratching my head - just asking, "Why"?? Cloth table cloth. Paper napkins! Why?!! Diners are paying... More

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!

We were recommended here by our server the night before. Brunch was fantastic. Super cute atmosphere, the servers were working as a team and very on top of their game! I got the salmon benedict- it was delishious! Smoked perfectly. The host, or manager(?) was very friendly and chatted for a while- made us feel at home and welcomed!

Great new Chef has made a fresh new menu and apparently will be constantly changing it as the seasons go. This quaint little place has truly become a new Diamond in the rough for me.

Thank you for your glowing review! Our awesome team works hard to keep the menu fresh & seasonal and ensure the best experience we can offer to each and every guest. In fact, we recently revised our menu to reflect this winter season. Local produce along with fresh seafood deliveries twice weekly from the Carolina coast go a long way... More

We have eaten at Rockfish frequently with groups and just as a couple. Our service has always been good (including Valentine's Eve 2016). The food is diverse and always well prepared. On the most recent occasion, I had the creole shrimp with grits and the rest of our group all had the scallops special. Everyone was pleased with their choice.... More

The food was quite tasty (my friend Raved about the duck special). Nice warm bread, and a small/adequate/predictable salad. My black bean dish was good but I would have a salad and appetizer if I were to return. A nice wine list. The management apparently didn't think that shoveling snow from the few on street parking spots would be a... More

It's above average in every way: service, food, etc. But nothing special when compared to other restaurants in Roanoke and Grandin Village.
