The Bottom Line
We ordered a lot of food! Three appetizers, one bowl of soup, three entrees, three soft drinks, and one dessert--for less than $70. Quite a bargain, I'd say. I guess they thought it was cute to have unusual prices for items, like $3.61 for a salad or $9.12 for an entree.
- Prices at Rockfish are very reasonable
- Great appetizers
- Booth seats are hard and uncomfortable
- Fried foods seem to quickly lose crispness
- The most expensive item on the menu is $17--and that's a steak. Order a steak at Rockfish? Not me!
- Atmosphere is casual, booths that seat six are inviting for families. Decor is fishy.
- Rockfish is a chain, but most of them are in Texas.
- Everything on the Rockfish menu is available for take-out at a separate entrance and counter.
- Nice selection on the kid's menu.
Guide Review - Rockfish Seafood Grill
On this trip to Rockfish we ordered Crab Cakes, the Mexican Shrimp Martini (with the optional Tequila) and the Gouda Spinach Dip. We tried both the Boston Cam Chowder and the Roasted Jalapeno Cream soups. Our entrees for the evening were the Alaskan Fish and Chips, the Catfish and Shrimp Combo, and the Seafood Enchiladas. For dessert, the Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce was an easy decision to make.
All the entrees were OK, but all the items surrounding the entrees outshone them. Rockfish's crab cakes are some of the best we've had here in the Phoenix area. The Mexican Shrimp Martini was large and delicious, almost sweet but spicy. I'm guessing there were 20 shrimps in there! The spinach dip was fine, but I'll have a hard time deciding between the Shrimp Martini and the crab cakes next time.
For an unusual flavor that's a bit hot but without after burn, try the Jalapeno Cream Soup. For dessert, do not miss the bread pudding. If you enjoy bread pudding, this warm, moist version with lots of bourbon sauce is a winner to complete your meal.
