Got the BBQ Shrimp appetizer and was very good. For dinner I had the Ribs and Shrimp dinner this also was very tasty. Just need a few extra napkins. The setting was nice looking out over Rudee Inlet.

I have been to Rockafeller's many times for the dinner menu, which is always great. I went last Saturday, Oct. 14th, for lunch. The shrimp & crab quesadilla was absolutely wonderful. The best quesadilla I have ever eaten. Highly recommend this.
