Rejoice my friends, for I have the solution that your heart desires! Check out Rockfish Grill - a casual sea food chain that in fact, was born in Dallas, with branches across the Dallas Metroplex.
What brings me back for more:
What my family and I appreciate about the Rockfish Grill is its extremely casual, family-friendly ambiance almost bordering on the “laissez-faire”. Service is delivered with a smile by some very friendly people who have a great attitude. A unique attribute is the ability to serve yourself fresh peanuts in a little bucket and then actually throw the peanut shells onto the floor once you’re done, which has my six year old tickled pink – how cool is that?!:-)
The Rockfish serves up some super margaritas, beers on tap as well as some fine wines but the great value seafood is what brings us back at least twice every week!
The shrimp martini (see photo below) is a masterpiece with giant sized dressed and boiled shrimps tossed into the freshly made house salsa, spiced with Cajun seasonings, with a final touch of tequila and then mixed like a cocktail – beware, this is addictive!
The Fiery Island Shrimp, a new addition to the menu comprises fried shrimp "scintillated" in their secret spice n' honey mustard sauce that leaves your taste buds tingling...and yearning for more!
Unequivocally, the best Fish Tacos served in this country, made with tilapia grilled, fried or blackened, and wrapped with cole slaw and their secret and spicy anchovy sauce (see photo below) that makes all the difference to the flavor – you just can’t go wrong with them tacos!
- The trophy rainbow trout, blackened and served up on a julienne of grilled veggies and asparagus, is awesome and is our perennial favorite. Seafood does not come any fresher or heart-friendlier than this
- The tilapia, halibut, sea-bass, red snapper or mahi-mahi, usually seasonal and a house special served up grilled or blackened and finished with a jalapeno cream or similar sauce, with the house pilaf is, great for the palate and the pocketbook!
- The crab meat and the crawfish are well done and extremely popular
- The Cedar Plank Salmon (a novelty) which is a fresh fillet of salmon, grilled on a cedar plank and is topped with an Oriental BBQ glaze, roasted corn salsa and grilled shrimp and served with a side of veggies- simply sumptuous!
- The Tilapia Pontchartrain, comprising char-grilled tilapia with a Cajun cream crawfish and shrimp sauce, and served with a rice-pilaf, that would make Chef Emeril Lagasse very proud!
- The piece-de-resistance is the Copper River Salmon that is seasonal and flown in fresh from Alaska everyday for around 8-12 weeks in the months of March to June each year. This is the ruddiest, smoothest and the most odorless salmon you will have ever eaten – I go to Rockfish at least twice a week at this time to just have what I consider as the finest salmon in North-America!

That spicy anchovy sauce is something, eh?!Great recommendations including the Shrimp Martini that, with a touch of tequila and the cajun spices, really made my lunch! Cheers, Your comrade-at-arms in the cause of great food!:-) February 28, 2007 8:51 AM
