Rockwell's Bar & Grill serves food with a focus on freshness and quality ingredients, plus we love incorporating robust international flavours into our dishes.
We are surrounded by moments in life that we cannot miss, and this is one you can. Rockwell's is another example of how inexperienced men who know nothing about the restaurant industry open franchises, and struggle each day to keep their customers.
First of all, the dining room was empty at 7pm on a Friday night. Swastika signs were engraved along the edges as you enter the establishment. I leave it up to you to decide whether that is professional or not. There were a few middle aged men at the bar drinking beer. Cant go wrong with 2.99 sleeves of bud. Well you can, my husband ordered one, and it was flat. The waitress informed us that the hoses are leaking pressure and all of their beverages are flat. Yet we decided to give it a complete honest good chance, and stayed for dinner. Why do we torture ourselves, are we masochists?
We sat at one of the high tops in the bar. The fireplace emitted a gust of wind every minute or so, making the entire bar area chilly. I ordered a Strawberry Colada, and it was terrible. The alcohol spilled out of the sides of the cup, and when i requested that they blend it, instead of pouring the liquor down to the bottom, the waitress told us the owner insists on this way of preparation to make sure there is no alcohol wastage, Yet the wastage was on my table. I asked her to remake it in a bigger cup, and stirred it with my straw.
Food wise, overpriced, $12 for 8 wings accompanied by 3 pieces of celery and carrots. I asked for the wings to come half hot, and half plain, the server said this was not possible. I asked for a side of mayonnaise, and was not impressed when i saw the $1 miscellaneous charge on my bill later. My husbands calamari was child size, but it did come on a pretty fancy new plate. We like rectangle plates, but we didn't come here to admire plates, we came here to eat...Seafood angel hair pasta come overcooked, but such is normal 90 % of the time in bars, it had 3 pieces of prawns, and 3 pieces of tiny scallops for $27. My husband was disappointed that they do not offer prime rib, and ordered a steak. The mushroom topping was $8, but he enjoyed his meal.
I would not recommend this place to anyone, I will never go there for dinner again unless i lose my sanity or get severe memory loss. I am embarrassed for Mission to have this disgrace in it's town. On the other hand, you might want to try Eleni's restaurant if you're craving a good meal, properly mixed drinks, and good service.
