Absolutely the finest restaurant I've been to in years. The food is fantastic. I've eaten here many times and have to say that there's not a dud dish on the menu. And, the service is excellent. I especially like the Rack of Lamb (with mustard sauce). Another favourite is the Coquilles St Jacques. The schnitzels are amazing - the only problem here is choosing from their extensive selection of them. The Garlic Soup alone is worth dining here. A treasure indeed! Owen Sound - you're fortunate to have the Rockford nearby!!!

We visited the Rockford Inn again two nights ago and found the menu had been modified. Still lots of great selection and all the old favourites are there but on the daily specials board was Rack Of Lamb. Had it with mustard sauce and it was to die for. The best I have ever had. Melt in your mouth, amazing flavours. The schnitzel is still great but the lamb was amazing. This is their new signature dish, in my option. I asked Chef Jane for her secret and was told she marinates it in a yogurt sauce. It sure works.

We made a reservation because we heard from several of our friends how good the food in this Restaurant is - wow, were we ever in for a pleasant surprise ! We were greeted and seated by the window (without requesting this table). Our waiter was very friendly, and made great suggestions for our meal. The Garlic Soup was a great way to start the evening, we also ordered Baked Escargot and Caesar Salad for appetizers. For our main course we decided to order Lobster and Shrimp Pasta and Raspberry Tenderloin both incredible delicious. For dessert, we ordered Amaretto Rolls and Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. Everything was freshly prepared, made to our liking, and creatively presented. We loved it and cannot wait to return again.

Small road side Restaurant just south of Owen Sound on Hwy 6. European cuisine, Comfortable atmosphere with soft enjoyable music in the back ground so that you can enjoy your conversation but be present that the music is on. Try the garlic soup it is to die for. Tasteful,creamy and hot but not overpowering and a more than generous portion. We were unhurried with a very relaxing atmosphere, the owner is very accommodating with a great big smile no matter what is going on. The food was fresh and flowing off of the plates which seemed to be more of platter than a palate. The schnitzel was absolutely delicious and plentiful. Very Bavarian style surroundings with fine beers and ales which are served nice and cold. Can't wait to go again and order something totally different as every meal that came from the kitchen appeared to be bigger more colorful and succulent than the last. To our surprise and enjoyment it was only mentioned once when we had made reservations that it was for a birthday and low and be hold what comes out of the kitchen but a tarimizu for the birthday person. Very nice touch of class

My husband and I have been driving past this place for the past year and always wanted to drop in but it was not open till 5:00. We finally experienced the amazing food on March 21st. I loved the owner and his accent. The food was fresh, delicious and the helpings were falling over the plate. We are actually heading there again today and I have not eaten lunch preparing for the feast. To see this place on the outside you would not think it was good, and even the inside décor is so-so. But it is clean and the food. Yum, yum, yum.
