“Friendly Seafood with a Flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

As one reviewer noted - the menu is limited. Having said that, there were 16 main courses on the menu which seemed more than adequate for the varied tastes of our group of 6. The menu changes every day and can be viewed on their web site before you go. Their specialty is seafood which they do very well but there is also a nice selection turf items as well.

Our server, Jennifer, was the best. She was very attentive but not overly so. She appeared when needed but disappeared the rest of the time. A perfect balance!

I booked our reservation from their web site using Open Table. We were seated promptly (early in fact). The atmosphere was inviting and quiet enough to carry on a conversation.

“Great Local Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

I ate here for lunch and it was a good local experience. I had yesterday's soup which was a cheddar soup with great flavor and consistency. The meatloaf was nice and moist with a great light density.

Definitely recommend this location for a traditional american dinner for business.

“You would be hard pressed to find a better lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

I generally have lunch there 2 - 3 times each month. Service is relatively good even during peak times. Can be a bit noisy - reserve a corner table if you are looking for a little quiet.
My recommendation is the perch fillets over spinach, but the salmon is also quite good. The meat loaf and also the "box lunch" options are also good and vary from day to day. .
Figure to pay $10.-13 for lunch per person and a bit more if you add any of their yummy deserts and coffee.

“Used to be a go to place, now we won't be going back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

We have been dining at Steve and Rocky's for many years, we moved out of the area for a time so there was a lengthy hiatus in that time, but at least several times a year. Our last visit was OUR LAST VISIT. The quality of the food and the limited range of selections does not warrant the price, almost everything is obscured by sauces (our server mentioned this as well). And, it did not help our overall experience that our server was more interested in conversing with other patrons than handling the needs of all of her patrons, we were served our meal and left with nothing to drink during our meal for far too long, it was not until I got up and went to retrieve the drinks we had ordered when our meal was delivered that the service finally decided she should get back to work. There are many other equally nice restaurants in the area, in the future we will be getting to know some of them better and Steve and Rocky's is just a memory.

“Somewhat disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

This was our second time in Steve & Rocky's and we were disappointed with the taste and quality of food. Our first time was many years ago, just as this restaurant opened and what we remembered from years ago, was not there. Three out of our five meals were too salty. All you could taste in my salmon and my husband's perch was salt. The sauteed scallops carbonara would have been delicious if again, there was not so much salt in it. Filet mignon was very tasty but not the best cut of meat. Service was very good and the meal came in a very timely fashion.
