Overall everything was great but the one thing I wasn’t too happy about ,you start your meal sitting in the shade towards the end you’re sitting in the sun, do you need more shaded areas outside . 😎

Very cool place to go! We had a really fun time and the food was really good. Service was a bit slow but at least it was worth the wait. Unfortunately, because they allow dogs and happened to have all the outdoor fans on the night we went, you could see dog hair flying around but we tried to ignore it. (We love dogs but just didn’t want their fur in the food.) Other than that, highly recommend!

We ordered potato skins and there was ranch poured all over them, I've never seen them served like that and my kids wouldn't eat them. My husband had to ask more than once to get sweetener for his tea and we waited a very long time to get refills on our waters. I also felt that the food was priced high for what it was.

We arrived for lunch .. very short staffed.. many tables were still not cleaned up.. Our server did such a poor
job that after 50 minutes we left and went to another restaurant.

Generally poor service, it felt like if the entire staff was in training mode. Waters were never refilled, we had to ask three times to get utensils. Servers were consistently trying to deliver other guest orders to our table. Staff was pleasant but seemed untrained or maybe understaffed??

Overall we like Rock and Brews, a few things on the menu could be improved such as the chicken sandwich and fish tacos, many times they lack sauces/flavor.
I would recommend the wings, pizza, drinks and beers on tap are great.
We have always had great service, team members are friendly as well.

Food was pretty decent as usual. The iced tea was "off" had to ask for another glass. Was still a bit off, not sure why. However, the place is warm as usual, need to crank up the A/C.

Overall I love this place. Really cool theme with good energy and friendly staff. Drinks are decent. Good beer list. Food is pretty much bar food but they do a good job with it. It’s nice to enjoy the things I love about bar food but still have good quality. Pizza was good. Good size portions. Awesome for large parties. I’m pretty picky and I enjoy it here.

1. Asked for blue cheese on the side, but salad came with blue cheese mixed into it.
2. Micheladas had way too much ice and very little michelada mix, not worth $10 when it's only 6oz of beer and mix and the rest ice/water.
3. Pint glasses were warm, so IPA's got warm fast.
4. Service was slow, especially after asking for check. It was not busy at all, which was nice, but we thought it would be faster service.
5. Pizza was okay, not bad - not great, not worth $22+
6. Diablo chicken sandwich was super spicy, which was good.

I also have to mention that the staff cleaning up the tables after guests had left just wiped any leftover food on tables on the floor. Pretty gross and not a good idea when there are dogs on the patio. Tables not disinfected after use, just wiped down with a dirty rag with food flying off to the floor. My wife will not come back after seeing how tables are cleaned.

We chose to come here to celebrate HS Graduation, Kinder Promotion & Early Birthday. The only complaint I have is that they took too long to serve us. Maybe they were short staffed Idk. Food was great but not enough dinner options. This place is more for hang out for drinks and bar food. Atmosphere was fun and the servers were friendly. Loved the fact that they had a playground for the kids. That was pretty cool.

First timers ! Food was good - I got the strawberry/ steak salad it was really good the portion was perfect . My husband got the fish and chips - he said the portion was small , I asked him if he would get it again and he was quick to say “no”. I have the michelada with Coors light really good! Husband got two beers - he said the beers on tap could be a lot colder . He referenced it’s not Joe Josts cold . I asked husband for you want to come back? His reply no . I liked it though .

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME FOR MOTHER'S DAY. THEY SEATED REALLY QUICKLY, TOOK US EARLIER THAN OUR RESERVATIONS, THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND IT CAME OUT VERY QUICK FOR BEING BUSY ON THAT DAY. THE SERVICE WAS AMAZING, THE AMBIENCE ALWAYS LOVE IT THERE. THE BIGGEST SURPRISE OF ALL IS THEY BROUGHT OUT A SPECIAL DESSERT FOR MOTHER'S DAY AT NO CHARGE AND WAS A BIG PORTION THAT FED ALL 4 OF US. NOT EXPECTED AT ALL, ESPECIALLY ON THAT DAY.
THANK YOU ROCK AND BREW, YOU REALLY DO ROCK!!!!!!!!!

The food was a little pricey, but tasted decent. The Fish and Chips had too much batter. Service was kind of slow as a whole. Appetizer was served quick, but we didn't have utensils. We waited almost 30 minutes to receive our dinner and another 5 minutes for salad dressing. The kids sundae was a joke. A small scoop of ice cream with chocolate syrup and sprinkles for over $3.

Food and service were acceptable. However, they tried to get me to pay $51.60 to carry out a six pack of Pizza Port Swami. There’s a huge refrigerator at the front of this “brewery” that’s says in all capital letters “TAKE OUT.” In this fridge are six packs of beer. This made me think that, like every other brewpub in the world, that there would be carry out pricing on beer. However, after waiting an inordinate amount of time for three separate employees to try ringing me out, the final employee snarkily declared Swamis are $8 per, so to carry out a six pack is over $50 with tax. I pointed out that “drink here” and “to go” beer prices are never the same. He didn’t want to hear me.

This was after the server tried to charge us double for our kid’s lemonade.

They’re clearly trying to recover all the covid losses by ripping people off on beverages of all sorts.

Avoid.
