We had a wonderful table by the water, with excellent food. The waitress was delightful. I had sautéed crab in drawn butter and that was great. My husband had crab cakes that he really enjoyed also. We had great food, service and atmosphere.

It was very busy and service and food was great never felt rushed to finish. Andrew did a great job ensuring we had every thing we needed. It's not often you see management cleaning tables and serving customers.

We've gone to Rockefellers many times. The seafood and service are consistently good. The restaurant is tucked in the back of Rudee's Inlet. The water view is calm. Not a lot of activity on the water - just a peaceful spot.

We always stop by Rockafellers when we are in VB. Excellent oysters and a nice view. Bartenders are always friendly.
