    Bridal Showers

    We had such a great experience with On the Rocks. Since we were organizing during COVID restrictions, the staff was fantastic with accommodating our requests and working with us to make sure we were able to celebrate our bride.

    The staff were all so great and friendly.
    The location was beautiful, spacious, and fit our need perfectly.
    The food and drinks were delicious and our guests told us they were very pleased with their meals.

    Just Amazing!

    My son just had his wedding at On the Rocks. It was AMAZING! Melanie was so professional and spent the day making sure we loved everything. She was quick with emails and went above and beyond all of our requests. She gave great advice and helped make decisions. The food was fantastic, our guests are still talking about the clam chowder. Every menu item was delicious and beautifully served. We had a gorgeous weather day and i don't think there was anything to improve. The staff was awesome, so friendly and helpful. The venue looked magical. They transformed it into everything my son and his new wife wanted. Just beautiful. Best day ever
