Always good, nice setting, good service... enjoyed done drinks and appetizers in the patio... a few martinis and the steamed clams - love the broth the clams come in, perfect for dipping your bread... also had sone onion rings and lobster roll...
All good

I love this waterfront restaurant on a hot summer day. You can smell the salt air from your table, and all the big windows are open. They have good beers on tap. Nice service people. We order an iceberg wedge (which they kindly split in the kitchen), an order of steamed mussels and ice two ice cold adult beverages. How sweet it is!

Had a late fall dinner that was great. Calamari cooked to perfection. Wait staff frendly, helpful but not hovering. Wonderful location. Definitely going back.

My husband and I tried Rocky's Aqua one evening. We asked to be seated on the porch with water views and were given a beeper which would call us when a table was available. We sat at the bar on the porch, and decided to just eat at the bar. Our food was delivered quickly, and was very good. Staff were all very friendly. We will go back again!

So even though I'm a local and ventured out on a nice sunny fall day - we definitely were paying for the view. Alot has been done with remodeling this restaurant. I must say its been a few years since I've been there. You can't beat sitting at the marina and having lunch. The sandwich (shrimp wrap) was average. Shrimp could have used more seasoning and flavor. The wrap with sweet potato fries were $16. Seems a little on the high side to me compared to other places. Had a drink which was in a slender so-called tall glass. Definitely not worth the $ but the flavor was good. Lunch for two with each having a drink came to about $52. Not cheap but like I said - your paying more for the view.
