Rock Harbor is one of my favorite restaurants....this past weekend I was somewhat disappointed. I had the bolognese and it was just Ho hum. The caprese salad was yummy. My friend had turkey tips and she was said it was ok. The breadsticks are always a favorite. What was unsettling was the bar was jammed and a group of women... More

We liked the food - particularly serving the main course on pureed butternut squash rather than a less healthy carb. But we were 4 people, two by two seating at a table for 4 and we could not hear each other's sentences. Maybe younger ears can handle the noise? It was full on a weeknight during off-season, so lots of... More

This is one of those places you really don't want to write a review about because you expose a great find. Chuck goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. We had Lauren take care of us at our table and all we can say is, well done. A nice neighborhood restaurant with friendly staff and super food.... More

We've eaten here about 6 times - both in season and off. Off season waits are manageable and they will let you do a 1/2 call ahead - think probably no during the busy summer months. They also do takeout. Predictable and efficient service. Swordfish special with risotto excellent, fish and chips a tad greasy but nice firm fresh cod,... More

For the type of place and atmosphere, we felt that the menu was very overpriced. we ordered the PEI mussels for $16 and I bet didn't get even 16 mussels. They were tasty but quite pricey. Same thing with the crusted cod, which was good yet small but $29 for cod! My son had the margherita pizza which was appropriately... More

Rock Harbor is a favorite! The atmosphere is warm and fun. the staff is friendly and helpful. The drinks are great and interesting. The pizza from the wood oven is delicious. The menu changes frequently and always good. There is sometimes a wait but that is because others like this place too!

Another good restaurant to go to in Orleans. Went out with friends and all 4 of us loved our meals. From burgers to pizza to cod cakes everyone was happy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good tap selection. Will definitely go back

Do not write many reviews in recent years, but cannot pass this one up. Décor is reminiscent of an old Lobster Shack, in the good sense. Service, by genuine and friendly staff outstanding. Small, but excellent wine list choices, reasonably priced for these days. My choice was the Hanger steak, only one to a steer, was by far one of... More
