Went for dinner with another couple last week. Really like this restaurant. Got a text after booking, confirming my reservation - thought that was pretty cool. Definitely make a reservation if you’re going, as this place is busy. Great food choices, and everything we had...More

Never experienced any other place that's less accommodating than this place. Lunch stops at 3 pm SHARP, because evidently, everyone eats dinner as of 3:01 in Whitby. Couldn't make a simple shrimp sandwich that was made a mere 10 minutes prior to our arrival because...More

We visited hot rocks for a birthday celebration. Loved that I could make a reservation online. I had the coconut shrimp app and it was ok, lacked flavour but shrimp were a good size. Pizza was yummy though and easily shareable/or good for leftovers.

Went here for the first time and absolutely loved it! Great food, amazing service and really good wine selection. Loved that it was a smaller place and wasn’t too loud or crowded. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back!
