Went last night. I ordered the coconut shrimp. The shrimp were great but they were served with raspberry sweet sauce. Would be so much better with orange marmalade with some horseradish added. Just saying. This is a great of the beaten path place. Beautiful view.

Basically, On the Rocks is a typical lunch-type grill. And, when the weather is rainy, as it was when we visited, inside-seating-only removes almost all of the charming view. Burgers, sammies, salads, sodas and beer. The wait staff was a little harried. I suspect they...More

This place has been a main stay of our summer, until today. Apparently the new management is trying to squeak a few more dollars out of customers. Drinks are served in smaller cups, with measured pours (read weaker drinks), for more money. Food prices are...More
