food is always excellent
i love coming here! the best truffle fries the best everything! wonderful selection and variety of things to eat. sometimes your server will be hit or miss but the bus boys and food delivery staff is always wonderful and the food is so darn good who cares? you will consistently get the perfectly cooked fry! Burgers are wonderful the pretzel bun is amazing and the salads are fab and the cocktail sauce for the shrimp you just want to swallow- def one of my most have places to eat!

Fantastic truffle fries...one
Fantastic truffle fries...one of the few restaurants where the truffle oil had a distinctive taste! They're even better when ordered "well done".

Rockit Burger A++
The Rockit burger, kobe beef topped with brie cheese, was the best burger I've had in a while. Restaurant area is a little dark and lounge area was completely packed, but a good time overall with delicious food. Get there early to avoid the late night lines to get in!

Great food, service-nothing special
I really liked this place. AMAZING FOOD! Big plates! Save room for the food.
We did not get drinks there because we decided to go to a different bar for drinks but I saw a lot of people getting cool drinks. They have a separate bar as well, but we sat at a very comfy 2 person booth.
You know it was really busy and our waitress seemed distracted so I did not feel like she was paying that much attention to us as much as she was to the table next to us. They seemed to be spending a lot more and they did not have a coupon like we did so I guess may be she was not as interested in us.
Also, if you go to their website and sign up for their email list they give a $10 coupon.
I think its a must do in Chicago.

Service was great! and server
Service was great! and server was very friendly. Had the house specialty cheese fries with brie and mushrooms as an appetizer. The almond crusted tilapia was delicious. The Locavore burger was quite tasty, also. Overall, a return trip is definitely on the horizon. We would recommend this spot to others.

Love this place!
Second time here for brunch. Food is amazing. Best grilled brie on raisin roast and sweet potato fries! Also, bloody Mary bar is amazing.. Live music which is great, the guy on Sundays has a great voice. Perfect for brunch with friends. Also had a great server.

I was there with a group of 8 girls on a Sunday night. It was not crowded at all but I guess Friday and Saturday nights could be very busy. It has nice décor and the food was very good! The price is awesome and surprisingly cheap. You really feel like eating high quality food. I like the variety of side dishes like multiple fries (the sweet potato fries were very good!), salad or vegetables. I will definitely go back and/or go to the Wrigley location.

Had very low expectations...but Rockit completely blew me away. I'll have to admit, I really loved the TV Dinner! I'll have to come back!

Disappointed as I kept trying
Disappointed as I kept trying to get the gdine deal and I wasn't able to get it online before dining at the restaurant. Also my server kept disappearing - ? But overall good food.
4/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
You can't go wrong with any burger and an ice cold beer.
5/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another Great Trip to Rockit!
We visit Chicago at least once a year, and we always have dinner at the Rockit. All of the food is delicous, but, of course, they are known for their hamburgers. I even tried the turkey burger, and it was awesome! Love the truffle fries. And the Bomb Pop drink!! Highly recommend visiting this restaurant if you are in Chicago, but make a reservation. It is a very popular place!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place Rocks!
I have eaten there several times, and the food is outstanding. The biggest problem that I have is that I tried a little off of everyone's plate, and I do not know what to get next time. Service is good, and the atmosphere is plain but cool. It was a little loud to talk, but enjoyable nevertheless.
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service were great. The Bloody Mary bar was also great.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good burgers, slow service.
The ambience and the food are good, but the service is a bit slow and we went during a non-peak time. Support staff was friendly and prompt though.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you are into having a Bloody Marry in the morning, brunch at this place is a must! It is referred to as a Bloody Mary bar but it is way more than that. Just go and find out for yourself. You will not be disappointed!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good for happy hour
Happy hour is great, as is brunch. Just know that if you register for 1000 points, somehow you'll only get 100.

Great lunch outing
Staff very accommodating - had a baby in the stroller and they made sure we were set up well.
Food delicious - everyone in the party enjoyed their choices - the trio was a great deal, turkey burgers and buffalo chicken wrap were also very good. Everyone else wished they had gotten truffle fries, too. Food came out quickly and the entire staff was very friendly.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This places was recommended by someone from Chicago and they weren't wrong. Try one of their amazing burgers and a specialty cocktail from the bar. You won't be disappointed.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
My server was Brian. I sat on the patio, Had a cocktail and a beer. All his recommendations were great. DIdnt feel rushed. This place is always good, and its opened all day.

Hawks Win What a Night
Watched the hawks incredible win. High energy crowd . Very memorable eve. Food was great , Ate in the lounge with plastes positioned on the ledge.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
perfect date night spot
My husband and I saw online in your up coming events the burger fest. We ended up w/ a delicious appetizer of Bourbon chicken wings, then topmost delicious burger topped off w/ a great cocktail called Poprockit. Defiantly will go again and recommend.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were looking for something in downtown Chicago that was a little off of the beaten path, had great food,drinks, and service for a fair price. Rock it bar and grill was it!!!
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good, But Not Worth the Money
The menu had a wide variety of food, however I think the specifications of what were in certain dishes were a little off. My meal ended up having mushrooms, which was NOT listed in the menu. I had to send it back and wait for a new dish... I SHOULD have gotten something off for their mistake, but the waitress seemed a little busy to take care of anything. I would have asked for a manager, but I know it would have taken a good 30 minutes.
It was so dimly lit that I saw a few people holding their table candles up to the menu in order to read it.
My final plate ended up being good, but not worth the money. I could have gotten the same thing somewhere else for much less.

My husband, his friend, and I went to Rockit for brunch last Sunday. The food was delicious, the service was great, and the ambience was outstanding! There was a guy playing guitar and singing songs from all genres. It was awesome!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great happy hour specials
Usually the food here is pretty good, especially the appetizers. I recommend the cheesy fries and the Rockit Pockits. The french dip and mac & cheese were bland though. The crowd definitely picks up during the dinner time and be sure to check out the drink specials during the week. Great for groups!

Hip place to take kids
We were in Chicago to celebrate my daughter's 8th birthday. She and her friend had the TV dinner and they thought that was the coolest thing ever! The staff made a big deal over my daughter's birthday and made us feel very special. The wait staff gave great recommendations on cocktails (Chicago Mule!) and menu selections (Cinnamon Raisin Grilled Cheese!).
Thank you for a great dining experience!!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to dine!
Great food and service! The ribs were fantastic. Their sweet potato fries are worlds better than most I've had. The service was very attentive without "Going overboard." We had a great time and would definitely come back.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu, need to execute
Went here for brunch to try the bloody mary bar...good bloodys for $5 with decent toppings.The $5 mojitos had good flavor but a weak pour in terms of rum. Great menu but our medium rare ordered burger was way over cooked. The charred taste over powered it which disappoints when paying $15+ bucks for a burger. Pork confit and fried egg sandwhich was good, though. Our server was sweet and had good energy but forgot about us a few times and grtting the check took forever. Overall a fun brunch spot (and the non brunch menu looks inviting too) but execution and service need to tighten up
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Rockit a couple times now and every time I get great service and great food! Definitely recommend it.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great burgers, beer, and ambience!
My brother was in town for the weekend and went out to Rockit, we had a great time. The burgers and truffle fries are some of the best in the city! Also fantastic beer selection and good appetizers (rockit pockits are a must have!)
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great lunch menu
Stopped over for lunch. Rockit has a great lunch menu-food and pricewise!
Ate outside on a gorgeous summer day!

Service was a bit slow, but it didn't matter because we had plenty of time. Food was good. Servers were nice.

would go again
Drinks were great, good beer list. The server was attentive but not pushy. She had some great recommendations. The food was solid bar food. Definitely a more casual menu but it seems that they do it well with a few fun spins along the way (try the buffalo calamari cobb).
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We did dinner and then headed upstairs to dance the night away. Great combo place!

Rockit fits the pre-show bill
My wife and I were going to see Franki Valli at the Chicago Theatre (now you know how old we are), so we chose Rockit. It was very early Friday evening, 6 pm, so the restaurant part was mostly empty. Even so the noise from the downstairs lounge was loud. There were a few larger groups when we arrived and it was a lot more crowded by the time we left a little past 7 pm. The service was excellent, the sandwiches were giant and done well. Drinks are generous. All in all, very good, but nothing so outstanding we would return for it.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We go for brunch a lot. Great Bloody Mary bar, drink specials, and draft beers. Food is always amazing and staff friendly!
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good For All Occasions
One of the most versatile places in Chicago. Can get brunch downstairs on weekends with live music, great food, bloody mary bar. Can watch a sports game upstairs in the spacious bar area and play pool. Could go on a date here or even bring the family out for a casual night. Love Rockit, definitely one of my "go-to's" whenever looking for a place to go hang out
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was good! Burgers and wings, outstanding. Crispy pork and egg sandwich was one of the best things I've ever tasted.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the burger selection and the ones that we ordered were really good.
Staff was very friendly and our server was excellent, very friendly and very attentive.

Great food, service and setting. Would definitely return for a meal when in Chicago.
