We stay at Irish Mountain B&B in Meaford every year and the owners always recommend Rockford. We FINALLY tried it and it will definitely be in our dinner plans going forward. My husband was torn, wanting to try schnitzel since that’s their specialty but the...Thursday night special was meatloaf, a favourite of his. He opted for the special; excellent homemade meatloaf, grilled vegetables and mashed potatoes almost as good as mine. I went for the Jaeger schnitzel; topped with a perfect creamy mushroom/onion gravy, roasted vegetables and fresh home fries. Tender and tasty, generous portions, reasonable prices and friendly service. We were impressed with their adhering to COVID restrictions; social distancing and the wearing of masks. We will definitely return.More

Very good food, amazing service, fair prices, not a bad thing to say about the place. They made the COVID rules clear which was helpful. The homefries are fantastic.

I’ve eaten here many times over the years. Now during the pandemic, I’ve visited twice. Very professional approach to keeping the area clean and current safety measure in place. Today, I visited with three friends. Lisa looked after us. We sat on the patio. We...all noticed the courteous attention given. The food was wonderful and enjoyed by all. I will continue to promote this unpretentious setting that provides such great meals.More

I reviewed this restarant a couple of years ago and raved about it. Now that we have an epidemic on our hands it is good to know there is still a restaurant that serves excellent food in a very safe venue where you can enjoy...your food with confidence everything is done right. We opted to eat inside and we could see into the kitchen and everything was running smoothly. They have schnitzel to rave about . Their beer list was shorter because of lack of supply probably due to the virus but but national brands were available.More

My husband was raving about the breakfast at the Rockford restaurant, we went this morning so I could try it as well. I was not disappointed, definitely try the Rockford Skillet, very tasty! Great service and prices too.
