What People are Saying

  • Rodney's has always been our go to spot when on the island and on 59th St. Food always on point, great pricing for the amount of food. A relaxed atmosphere so dont be in a hurry, it's not a fast food restaurant. If people are complaining about prices, review their places they eat, Golden Coral, McDonalds and Olive Garden etc.. The Red Snapper and Ox Tails are the bomb, I have NEVER been disappointed with Rodney's and we have had my sons graduation party and my birthday party there. It's a MUST!
