  • "We've been here many times, price is right food is good. Love the apps."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Now up to 30 or so visits. Never disappointed. This was our first time on the outdoor patio. Very enjoyable. A little noise from I-88 (maybe a sound system with some traffic-cancelling background music would help: hint, hint Mr. Owner). Regardless, Rockwood is a great place. Whether it's dinner with the wives, or a Bears or Hawks game with the guys, Rockwood ROCKS!"

  • "This restaurant is a hidden gem. 5 of us went and had never been there before. The waitress was friendly and very helpful in our selection. The food was great and not expensive."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Normally the food is pretty good and the service has been great. This last time however I was somewhat disappointed. We were seated in the back room in the corner at a table for 6 although there were just 3 of us. There was a vent blowing cold air directly at the table. Our server moved us to the main dining area at a table for four which was much more comfortable. When our food came it was just okay and not as good as I remember it. My wife and I had the prime rib and it seemed rather bland. The service was okay no complaints. I found out that they failed to note I had made reservations through open table and I originally did not receive credit for the reservation and was almost charged with a no-show. It was eventually corrected."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We had the prime rib special and it was very good. The restaurant wasn't too busy for a Saturday night, not sure why. We thought the food quality was very good for the reasonable price."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "the manager needs to go to a customer service class. We had a party of 7 and were seating in the dining room. It was not crowded at all at the time we were seated. 5p. We proceded to order the 1/2 price apps, was told that 1/2 price was only available 6 ft away in the bar area. We asked to speak with the manager, he was not only rude, he never really looked at us when he spoke and will never go back to this restaurant... just because of his behavior. It is a shame because the food was good and our waitress was great. Too bad for a bad manager!!!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Our waiter was not very knowledgeable regarding the beers on tap. You could tell that he had not been working there too long. Since we go to Rockwood's quite often, we have always noticed a more experienced waiter (or wait staff person what ever you want to call them) working with them. This person needs more training. Although I have to say, the food is always is good!!!"

  • "Have been going here for many years, started when it was Finley's Grill Room. Food is still quite good and great ambience. BLT was delicious!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We went on a Saturday night but the place was pretty empty. I hope this isn't typical of the business they have or they may not be around long. The food was very good. The server was sweet and energetic, but she took forever to get our food out. (The food was hot when it came out, so this may have been the kitchen's fault, but there isn't a place to rate them.) The music selection was also odd. They played a lot of older, slow music, including some Grateful Dead, certainly not a vibrant choice. But overall, it was a good experience & I'm sure we will go back."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Good food reasonable price. Started for rib special and have branched out. Food has consistently been excellent, rarely disappointed with anything food related at this restaurant."

  • "Food and service both are good. The quantity and quality of the food is good as well. Most items like soup and salad are extra, but could be included in the price of the meal."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My brother gave us a gift card... We went and were hooked. Absolutely DELICIOUS tilapia. The ribs are "fall off the bone" delicious and the sauce is just perfect. Pork chops we're wonderful. Our server, Jake, was very personal, professional and gave us just the right amount of attention. We live an hour away and would definitely make the trip down to eat there again..for no special reason...other than the food is WONDERFUL. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Rockwood was a hit. We had out-of-town guests staying with us and they wanted to take us out. We suggested Rockwood because of the excellent experience we have had in the past and a strong, diverse menu that should satisfy anyone. You knocked it our of the park again. Thank you!"
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "The menu is extremely limited for people who don't eat meat and don't want to eat fried food. Even the salads come with chicken and often bacon. This leaves you with a really boring salad if you ask for it without the meat. I ordered the veggie burger - it was messy overly moist (it fell apart) and wasn't that good. The fries are pretty good, but I would have prefered a healthier side. My colleague got a hamburger with real meat though, and she was very happy with it."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The place was huge. Multiple stain on the ceiling from water damage. We were seated in a booth that 6 people can sit. Our server was good. The chicken in my salad was very salty."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Great selection of beer and menu that has enough variety for most diners. Upscale look and very affordable prices make this a great choice. Food was excellent and had great service. We will be coming back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Went there on St. Patrick's Day (a Monday) to meet a couple of friends. I thought it was going to typical pub food in a loud bar atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised by both the food and the atmosphere. The crowd was light, the bar area was huge but separated nicely from most of the dinning tables. The appetizers (onion rings and Frickles - fried pickles) were very good. Entrees were excellent (pork chops, ribs, a corned beef sandwich, and a veggie wrap platter). All in all, no complaints; if you're looking for a casual bar atmosphere with very good food, this place fits the bill."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Rockwood Tap House remained wonderful. This was our second time there but I craved prime rib and my husband wanted BBQ ribs. We had the prime ribs the last time and the quality and portion size is beyond belief considering the price. We had not had the BBQ ribs but we wanted to try and we were not disappointed. Everything at Rockwoodwas great and we will be back - more often now that it provide its consistency!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We were a group of 5 ladies and had a nice dinner here on a Saturday night. We all had drinks, the food was very good, we had a great waitress and they allowed us to linger. Would come back again!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We wanted to try a new place and found this on open table. The weather was a bit crazy, so it wasn't busy but that was fine with us. They offer nice beer menu along with a full well-rounded menu. I had a burger which was tasty and prepared just as I requested. My husband had a shaved prime rib sandwich which he said was excellent. Our server was good and we were able to watch the Blackhawks game from our dinner table! We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "They make a nice burger...even a good veggie burger."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "It was a nice restaurant and the food was decent. We felt rushed however, we weren't even done with dinner when our server asked if we'd want anything else (coffee, drinks, dessert) and when we said no we had the check on our table before we finished eating. We will likely be back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Overall we had a great dining experience here. Our server was friendly, the ambience and decor are nice, and our meals were really good. Just a couple of negatives - it took about 30 minutes to get our food, and we both ordered burgers. Seems like a long time to wait for just a burger. Also, while their martinis are really good, the glasses are incredibly small. I paid $8.50 for a martini and it was almost like a "kid size" glass. It was the smallest martini glass I've ever seen at a restaurant. If they're going to make the glass that small, they should lower the price to about $5.00 per glass."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We dined here a few years ago and the service was mediocre at best and the food was fair to good. We decided to give it another try on Valentine's Day since it seemed like an ok place to take kids that also takes reservations. The food was REALLY good and the service was so much better than I remember. I ordered the Aztec Chicken Wrap and it had just the right amount of spice. My husband got the Caribbean Salad and loved it. The kids had mac and cheese which was penne pasta with cheese sauce and ate all of it. My only complaint would be that the mac and cheese didn't come with a side like some of the other options on the kids menu. The fireplaces were a nice, cozy touch too. We will definitely be going back!"

  • "The food is always excellant and served hot. The price is very reasonable. Great Beer choices. The Thursday night Rib Special is a great deal!!!"
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "W have dined here several times. The menu is extensive and food is always good. Good portions. However, the waitress did not come back for drink refills until we were completely done. Needs to be a bit more attentive to customers."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "My wife and I went here for the first time after hearing that the burgers and fries were pretty good. They didn't disappoint. The service was a little slow, but very friendly. I'll definitely go back. The beer selection was also impressive."

  • "Great food!!! Atmosphere is really nice too!!! A little disappointed in the service this time, but everybody has an off day. Would totally recommend this place for sure!!! Awesome Prime Rib that is cooked to perfection :-) And the Pork Chops with Apples is to die for!!! Total bonus, the kitchen is open late on the weekends, serving their full menu too!!! Check this place out. It won't disappoint !!! Cheers!!!"

  • "I've been here for lunch a few times & the atmosphere is completely different at night! Glad we had a reservation as the places was packed. Great burgers - including the turkey burger I had with Gouda & roasted red peppers. "Nacho" appetizer was good, but disappointing as it should have been called tostadas. We wanted a heaping bunch of chips / nachos - not 3 small tortillas with fixings for 4 adults."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Used to go here weekly when it was Finley's Grill Room. Seemed to turn into a bar/burger joint after. Seems like a lot of the main dishes have come back and it is very enjoyable! Love the draft beer choices too!"

  • "This was our first time to Rockwood Tap House. I was craving Prime Rib but we also had a commitment later in the evening so we were looking for something in or near Downers Grove that could satisfy my Prime Rib craving while offer a variety of choices for my husband. We were pleased with the pleasant greeting when we entered the restaurant and the attentive treatment by our server. The food was quite good and they offer some wonderful freshly made salad dressings and dipping sauces."
