This is supposed to be one of the top rated restaurants in Hopkins. However, it is hard to judge when the doors are closed. We walked down the beach three times to eat here, but they were not open even though their hours of operation...More

Disappointed indeed! Like all small business owners, we work very hard to keep our rankings up at Tripadvisor and other social Media. If we get a bad review because we didn’t deliver the services expected, we take it very seriously but we try to learn...More

Chef Rob's was the perfect ending to our holiday. We had the steak served on a hot stone (go for it, there's no extra charge if you have the 4 course menu!) and it was delicious! The meat was so tender and the sauces and...More

The lava rock meal is very unique and high quality. They cook your food on a 700 degree stone right on the table. Great service, drinks, and food.

Menu is focused around a 4 course meal, but with limited options. You get choice from two soups, one salad (no other choice), about 8 entree options and one dessert (no other choice). The soups did not appeal to our tastes and the single dessert...More

We had eaten at Chef Rob's in the past and were extremely satisfied, so wanted to head back after 3 years. Not the same experience. The waiter (Mike) was not friendly at first and then just a bit too overly friendly. We stopped in w/o...More

Few quick points: - pictures of the food looks good but the food is very bland and the quality of the ingredients are not that great; the soup tasted like it was a can of Campbell’s soup, the pineapple juice was not fresh, the dessert...More

Chef Rob changes his menu on a daily base inspired by the freshest products delivered to us by the ocean and the land. You can have your meals prepared in the kitchen, or cooked directly at your table on a 700F hot Rock, the 'Love on the Rocks' concept. Enjoy a 4 course gourmet menu or 'a la Carte' options while zipping a tantalizing cocktail overlooking the Caribbean sea. We do welcome vegetarians and will cater to any menu restriction, within reason.
