Dinner with friends at the
Dinner with friends at the Rox City Grill was an exceptional evening. The ladies met at the bar prior to dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere. The men joined for dinner. Our server was funny, smart and efficient. The bartender was talented and professional. Service was excellent all evening.
The most difficult part was figuring out what to order. Some really great menu options. The appetizers were exceptional. The sliders are themselves worth a trip to St. Charles. They are the best I have ever had. Both the presentation and the flavor of the main courses were really outstanding. Desert was great and the do-nut holes were the table favorite.

We enjoyed our dinner at Rox
We enjoyed our dinner at Rox on 03/29; our booth seats were comfortable and just private enough to have normal conversation. Our server was very attentive and helpful.
My choice of their 3 Skewers entree was an excellent one...the chicken, filet mignon, shrimp & roasted veggies were perfectly prepared. The skewers also came with a coconut jasmine rice side dish.
We will return soon to enjoy unique and fine dinner!

The tables were too close together - could hear tables on each side conversations.

Excellent food, decent service.
While we really enjoyed our dinner, filet,caesar salad, felt it was a bit pricey. They have a nice presentation and the preparations are very good. $34 for filet, $8 salad, $7 side of sauteed mushrooms, $10-$12 martini. A bit much for St. Charles...But, it was very good!

Joe, who is the bartender and has been there for years took care of us since we wanted a table close to TV to watch the Blackhawks game. His service was perfect and food recommendations were right on. This St. Charles gem is always good and is a great spot for dinner and or drinks.

A pleasant surprise
We stumbled upon this great restaurant with a wonderful contemporary American menu. We'd definitely visit again when in the area.

Fun restaurant in St Charles
This restaurant has a good menu - but not an overwhelming menu. Our food arrived quickly and we all had a great time at a table of 9 people. The most interesting thing was that there was a large wedding going on and I worried the food would take a long time to get to us. It did not! Afterwards we spent some time in the piano bar which was tons of fun - singing along to the music - very friendly atmosphere!

Rox City Grill
A little more expensive than $$. You can get out under $30 per person but that would be hard. Great menu selections though.

Great weekend dining
Rox City is in the historic Hotel Baker in St. Charles. It has a very quaint bar area with music on evenings.
APPETIZER: Sirloin sliders are tremendous -- really flavorful.
SALAD: Mixed greens wrapped inside a loop of shaved cucumber superb; wedge with bleu cheese is a meal in and of itself.
DINNER: Portions are plentiful -- consider splitting an entree if you're only mildly hungry. The scallops entree featured six sizable scallops, each topped with a pickled onion (nice!) and all sitting on a HUGE bed of black lentils cooked with bacon. They could have cut about a half cup off the lentils -- delicious but you just can't eat them all.
DESSERTS: Inventive and fun.
Highly recommended for business or personal engagements. Great evening.

Great date night
Married 22yrs yet still love to go out for a date-night quality meal - Rox City Grill definitely is the place to go. Elegant atmosphere, quiet surroundings, and great food/drink options. The presentation of salads and entrees is gorgeous, and tasted even better. Give it a try.

A wonderful experience
We had a reservation for a party of ten for a special occasion. They were ready for us when we arrived and provided impeccable service and the food was wonderful. One person in our party has to eat gluten-free and they had a special menu available for her. The fact that it is in a beautifully restored hotel made the experience even more memorable.

First time at this restaurant. Had appetizers and wine. Food was excellent. Had a French Chardonnay and it was very nice.
This restaurant is reasonably priced and the service is old school - very professional but not stuffy. Definitely going back.

St. Charles Fine Dining...
With 'Grill' in it's name the ROX City Grill may be confused as a 'pub grub' restaurant - far from it; ROX city grill is fine dining in the heart of St. Charles located in the historic Baker hotel on the Fox River. The restaurant itself does not have river views, but the booths are romantic and the tables do offer a view of the street scene. The lobster bisque soup was excellent - very rich - but the size could have been a little more generous. The Swordfish Oscar was very good - just a touch dry, but still very enjoyable; Steaks are worth the trip as well. Service was outstanding - very friendly and helpful. It is a little on the pricey side.

Pleased with new menu
We discovered that Rox City Grill had changed their menu since our last visit. We were pleased with our entrée sections, but want to return to try other new dishes. We will return soon. Rox City Grill is on our list of preferred restaurants in the Geneva/St. Charles area.

Always a good meal
This is our third time at Rox City Grill and we enjoy it every time. Twice I have ordered specials which are wonderful. They really know what they are doing with seafood. Get a table by the window and watch people go by. Easy for conversation and helpful service. We will be back.

Rox City Noob
Food was good, and the price was right. Service was slow which was probably the only negative.

A real gem
We met friends at Rox's for a birthday dinner before a show at the Arcada Theatre.The food, presentation, wait staff, and ambience are all top notch. It's location is ideal for walking to St Charles venues and attractions. We go to the Arcada theatre a few times a year and we will definitely enjoy a meal at Rox's in the future

Rox City Grill Delivers
I have not been impressed with past restaurants in the Baker Hotel. However, Rox City Grill was a happy and excellent surprise. The wedge salad had a twist on the standard iceberg lettuce and the dressing was fresh and unusual. I had the scallops on a bed of lentils and bacon with a lemon butter sauce, and they were superb, as good as I have ever tasted. My friend had the filet mignon, which was cooked perfectly and also excellent. The portions are generous, and the food is outstanding. Service was prompt. The piano bar singer was very, very good, not too loud, and added the perfect touch to the ambiance. The tab with wine, for two, was $90, which was very reasonable for a meal of such high quality. I'll be back!

From the food to the service, I've always enjoyed eating at Rox City Grill! The rib eye steak and sliders were terrific! Great selections for customers of any age...great kids menu w/ free ice cream, Having been there a few times, it was very nice for previous waitresses and the bartender to also come over and say hello to me and my family. We will return...again and again!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
2 thumbs up!
Had the Halibut special ...truly delicious! My date had the filet and loved it nearly as much as her Sangria Martini!!! Will dine there again.

Experience of a Lifetime
We picked this restaurant after reading previous reviews. We are now adding this restaurant to our favorite list. Presentation of food was beautiful and service plentiful. I had the Rock entree, which our waitress stated was going to be an experience of a lifetime. Consisted of steak, scallops, shrimp and veggies brought out on a platter. A hot cooking rock and tongs were placed on the table for cooking the platter items. Very fun and entertaining. We also had the lobster bisque, hummus appetizer, skewer entree, and the devils chocolate cake. All were delicious! We will be coming back frequently to eat here. This restaurant is housed in the Hotel Baker and well worth your while to stroll through the hotel.

special night out
We ate there for dinner. Great service and food. Everything is ala carte. Drinks good but expensive. Later in evening they had a piano player who was really excellent.

Our group of five were pleased with our meal, the unique room & the live piano music. Our drink order was slow to arrive but the martinis were outstanding so all is forgiven. This restaurant is now on our favorites list.

First time visiting ROX City Grill but will not be the last! Both the food and service were AMAZING!
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was outstanding and could complete with some of the best meals I've ever had. I wasn't sure what to expect and I was very pleasantly surprised. Even my 7 year old daughter loved her meal. I wouldn't say it's a kid restaurant but if you have an older child I think they will walk away happy. The donut dessert was AMAZING!!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife and I went with another couple here, and we were blown away by the appetizers. Main courses were fine, no better or worse than other restaurants of this type, but the appetizers were mind-blowing, and the waitress we had was fantastic. We're now planning on going here once a month.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had dinner at Rox City before a show at the Arcada. My wife had the scallops and said it was one of the best meals she ever had. I had the bone-in rib eye which was excellent. Nice ambience in the Baker Hotel.

Very good for Suburbs
Food was very good. Only disappointment was thought we would have river view. Nice inside but nothing special however staff was excellent.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is top notch!!! I love the sliders and tortilla soup. The donuts are great too! Been twice and haven't been disappointed. Highly recommend!

We made a reservation and then found out the Christmas parade would be going on. It was great to sit at the windows and watch .
Your bar tender makes a great Martini.
