This is a must visit restaurant! Rosine's has the best food. They offer dinner specials every evening. Some of my favorite entrees are the halibut off the specials. Entrees come with rice, carrots, and this broccoli casserole side dish that is to die for! Their house soup is minestrone and it has such a distinct taste to it. Clam chowder is offered on Fridays. The salads are also very good. The dressing is somehow better than other salad dressings. I don't know how they get their ranch dressing to taste that way, but YUM! Don't leave without getting a slice of cake. The slices of cake are HUGE and you'll really miss out if you don't order a piece. If you don't have room, take it to go and eat it later! One dish I'd like to suggest is the Chicken Castroville. Artichokes are locally grown and this dish is so yummy. Other items on the menu are cobb salad, selection of different pasta dishes and Philly cheese steak sandwich.

For the portion size and quality of food, the price is very well worth it. It's a local favorite. Almost everyone I know around here knows about Rosine's. They also sell a cookbook with some of the favorite recipes.
