The restaurant was closed when we got there although we had reservations.I kept calling them on our way but no one answered. We went to Dockside Willies next door and had a good meal.

Good service and food. It was a Friday night with musical entertainment in the bar area. We were seated in the main dining room but close to the bar area so the noise level made conversation somewhat challenging.

Always an excellent dinner when we dine here! Had the Mac crusted haddock. It was excellent. Also had the sweet potato casserole which was absolutely the best! Large portions and we all were stuffed when we left.

My husband and I ate dinner here a few days ago. We had great service, and the food came out in the proper order. We were able to finish our appetizers and salad before our meal came out. The only negative I have is I ordered the haddock, and I requested it to be broiled. It came out looking like it was just put in the microwave. Other than that, everything was good.

Very noisy. Service was slow but it was very busy. Had a reservation for the dining room but when we arrived we were directed to the bar area where a band was setting up. We asked to be moved into the dining room and were accommodated but our table was not in the best location for conversation. Was disappointed that a 2 week ahead reservation we were not seated in a good area.

Great views and chef quality meal! The atmosphere is perfect for a romantic date night or a night out with a group of friends. Prices are reasonable considering the select cuts of fish and beef.

Waited more than 30 minutes after being seated until we saw our server. Cocktails were very slow to be brought to table. Food came out on top of each course. Still eating apps and salad when entrees were crammed on table.

At least twice a year I take my daughter to Rock Bass to celebrate special events. The food, especially the fresh catches, are fabulous. The service was outstanding. The server was very polite, personable, and very accommodating. My daughter and I were very pleased with our visit. Thank you :)

Always a good meal at the Rock Bass Grill. We were there for lunch. Our party of six were celebrating a birthday and we chose the Rock Bass Grill as a location where we could meet, coming from Williamsport, Lititz and York ,PA. the service was excellent and each party mentioned that their food was very good and for a reasonable price. We will return for another celebration.

Our server Dawn was EXCELLENT! She was pleasant and welcoming and she knew just how often to check on us. She even “comped” us a serving of clams that she had ordered by mistake. Delightful! She is one of the best servers we’ve had in a long time.

The catch of the day fish was grilled and over cooked. The sweet potato casserole was ok. We have eaten there yearly with friends and this year was the worst. The outside sign said they were hiring, I wish I had known.

It was New Year's Eve and very busy. That being said, the staff was very courteous and kept checking on our party. They brought us water while we were waiting and once we were seated they brought fresh bread and hush puppies. Kathy, who is our regular server, was right on target. We did not wait long for our food even though she was very busy. Kudos to Kathy for making everything right.

We were very disappointed in our service. Waited 15 minutes before the hostess asked if our waiter was by . Then she told us she would get us water and rolls. Once our waiter took our drink order and came back with only ice tea for one of us and told us the bar was behind. He wanted to take our order right after receiving our drinks. Three french onion soups came our hot and very nice but the one seafood soup was cold and she didn't want to send it back. The baked potatoes were lukewarm to cold when service and two of the dinners were missing the shrimp from the crab cake and shrimp dinner. My salad was served a few minutes before the meal so I did not get to enjoy it and the others did not receive their coleslaw before the meal. I don't think an inexperienced waiter should have been serving New Year's eve. He told us it was his second time and and he kept apologizing. I have been here many times and had good hot food and service but was very disappointed this time. I noticed the experienced staff had the large tables.
