“Camouflaged Food”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Went here for dinner. I ordered "Crispy Fried Chicken" for $21. Dinner consisted of one small thigh covered with skin and a half breast with full skin. It was not crispy but gooey and chewy batter fried chicken skin on a small thigh and half breast. Waiter asked how dinner was he apologized and I sent it back and ordered "Fish and Chips" for $21. Two pieces of heavily battered fish and fries with coleslaw arrived. Although tasty, it was a lot of breading and little fish. I've had better fast food at 1/3 the price. We had an "appetizer" consisting of a handful of handcut and fried potato chips and two tablespoons of dip for $6. Draft beer is $5 and Sangria $10. A personal sized pizza with two toppings is $20 Bread consisted of two pretzel dough sticks which was never replenished. All this is served in a basic bench seat, outdoor carpeted, austere room with white painted open beam ceiling. After all the hype about this "trendy" place, it was truly bad. Don't waste your money, there are much better places.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Have lived in this area for decades and eaten at most every restaurant. Have been to Rock Harbor Grill 3 times now and continue to feel it is overpriced for the area, and the cuisine is designed to be trendy, but is always a disappointment. Last visit the pizza was inedible, with a soggy gelatinous crust and low quality mozzerella. Mgr tried to get us to take a free dessert to make up for it, but we ultimately agreed to have the charge taken off the bill. Will not go back.

“Rock Harbor Grille”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The Rock Harbor Grille is a new restaurant in Orleans. The owners are on site greeting customers which makes for a nice beginning to the meal. There is a long great bar with wonderful choices. The pizzas are a specialty of the house and the service is good.
It has been quite the local hang out.
The only drawback is it;s a bit noisy which some patrons don't mind. Don't let that stop you, the food is great!

“Favorites with a Twist”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Great hip atmosphere. We had awesome service. The staff really seemed to be pulling together as a team, and that was refreshing to see. Food was delicious, and I was impressed by the menu which offered basic dishes that I know I like, but with enough of a twist to make them new and exciting. We spent a little more than we're used to, but it felt worth it.
