Rock City Eatery
Come for Chef Nikita's creative menu filled with artisanal options and comfort cuisine. Enjoy a deliciously unique beverage. Stay for the pie. We love you.
Please note that reservations will expire after 15 minutes of your reserved time. All members of your party must be present to be seated. We look forward to serving you!
We got there early our reservation was at 7, and they already had our table ready. Our waitress was fantastic! The prices were incredibly reasonable for the portions. The Mac and cheese was fantastic. We also ordered the duck fries for an app 👌👌 and I ordered the maidenhead cocktail, 3 times 😉 would recommend!!
Went there before the symphony. Reservation table was ready on time and service was very friendly and quick. Everybody's food was good, but the hamburger was the biggest hit. Would definitely go again. Lots more on the menu I want to try!
The online rating and casual atmosphere attracted us and we were not let down- wonderful, fun, quirky with delightful fare. Excellent post theater choice
Really great time. Food was delicious- we had the chicken dumplings, brisket noodles and enchiladas. All were fabulous. Margaritas were super fresh, too. Will be coming back.
Steak was perfectly cooked and drinks were very strong. Excellent!
Food was delicious, especially the mac and cheese. The service was outstanding.
It was fine. Went once before. Liked it less this time.
We went with four women. Spilt several dishes. Everything was great and all us loved our meal
Food and service was amazing as always
Chicken dumplings and Mac N Cheese we’re amazing. Great service as well, everyone was really friendly.
Pre Hamilton dinner with family. We tried a variety of appetizers and they were all very good. The mixed drinks were creative and tasty. Even our normally picky eaters tried and enjoyed everything!
Great prices and nice atmosphere. Solid drinks, food was tasty. Would recommend!
The food is amazing and will always keep me coming, back I always cringe at the idea of the atmosphere. The chairs are always awkward, tiny, and uncomfortable (coming from a 4'11" person), it's typically cold, and if you have the pleasure of sitting near the bar and the dining room, you'll be subjected to two kinds of music playing at once. For a great price you will be able to taste and eat some amazingly flavorful and interesting food, but at the cost of comfort. I have tried and tried again to not let it overshadow the experience, but it isn't possible for me.
We had the most lovely dinner before heading to the Fisher Theater for Hamilton. We ordered a bottle of wine, pickles and dumplings for an appetizer, and then the udon noodles and mac and cheese for our entrees. I would recommend it all. The dumplings were probably my favorite. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, service was very prompt, and we made it to the theater with plenty of time to spare. My boyfriend is a vegetarian and he had plenty of options. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Great time and experience each time we’ve dined. This time Eric was our server and made our dining experience the reason why we recommend Rock City to our friends & family.
Enjoyed the menu being different from the usual burgers and fries.
Went in a little early in the night and atmosphere was chill and welcoming but as the night went along music suddenly got louder. That is my only complaint as I enjoyed the food and the bread pudding is a must have!!!
I would definitely check out Rock City Eatery again, especially just to try more of the pie flavors! Make sure to save room for dessert! Among our table of four, we tried a great variety of the dishes, and there was plenty to share around so we got to try a lot. I'm glad we had the reservation...we arrived at a slow time, but about 20 minutes later, a wait started to form, and we had theater tickets after. Our server Whitney was awesome and easily answered all of our questions. One of the Rock City Pies of the day, the Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter pie, was to die for!! We are looking forward to going again already!
My husband ordered a burger medium well. He said it was raw and cold. The other meals for the four of us were great. He did not complain to anyone until we left. I was wondering why he didn’t eat it but we were busy visiting with friends and he didn’t want to make a fuss.
Great service, food and we will be back
4 of us dined and 3 got our meals... after almost 20 minutes I asked our waitress when we could expect the last entree. It was very clear she forgot to put it in. Another 15 minutes went by and the last plate came out. 3 of us also asked for new drinks and she brought out 4, so she asked me if I’d like to keep the spare. I said sure, why not. We were charged for that drink even though we didn’t order it. We also didn’t get any kind of apology that the food was out late (nor did she ask us how our food was, which mine was not that great and I barely ate it). Our friends had a great experience but we had dined there before and our experience was so much better the last time. We were pretty disappointed with the subpar service we had.
Our server was cool. The menu was great. My salmon was amazing. My cocktail was awesome.
Eclectic cocktails and menu. Large portions for sharing and sampling. Good sound system and music adds to the fun vibe of the restaurant.
Great food, great drinks, great service, awesome vibe!!
Excellent food! Great service - highly recommend. We will be back for sure.
Great place to eat with kids too.
Food and service amazing!!!
The drinks were excellent and the Korean Pot was outstanding. Great spice level and flavor. Highly recommended.
The mac and cheese w/ bacon was great, and the edd cheeseburger was 👌🏽 and the drinks were really good; overall the meal was pretty good
Poor quality food. Everything tasted and looked like it was from bulk frozen food. Bummed about experience
Had Vietnamese Style Chicken and Noodles and loved it! A bit on the spicy side but not on fire spicy.
Loved the cool atmosphere and the playlist they had going!
Definitely recommend coming here if you’re downtown!
Food and service are always excellent. Prices are more than fair. The Choclate peanut butter and banana pie was an excellent desert special. Rock City is great.
Food was phenomenal! Good portion for a good price,unlike a lot of the other newer Detroit eateries with their small plates. Brussels sprouts and chili garlic blackened salmon were amazing. Buns were pretty good and the Mac and cheese with the parmesan bowl was Awesome
Great food, had the Kimchi Rice which was bomb. service was great, fit us in and kept everyone happy during the wait. Food and drinks flowed quickly, place is what you want in a midtown restaurant.
The waiter was very helpful and friendly, food was great and huge portions. Definitely recommend.
Great food and atmosphere. Server was super helpful since this was our first time there. She recommended the favs, but also asked us what we like so we could order the best things for us. We will definitely be back.
I had dinner here a year ago and didn’t recall the entire menu being spicy! I can’t handle spicy food, so my options were very limited - which was very disappointing. My daughter enjoyed the mac n cheese and her friend liked the burger. I ended up with a kale salad with salmon, which was good but not as exciting as the rest of the menu! The waiter was awesome and helped me find something.
This establishment is golden! Absolutely loved the friendly atmosphere and ambience of this restaurant for my birthday get together. We had a reservation and encountered a problem with getting sat right on time but this was handled by the owner and staff of the restaurant so graciously. All eight of us even received a free glass of champagne for the trouble! It was an amazing birthday dinner with amazing food as well! Two of us have celiac disease and enjoyed every last option of gluten free items! The mac and cheese and pulled pork nachos were to die for! Cocktails were also all delicious and very unique! We will be back! Thanks again for the great experience!
Food was great, diverse fare, very tasty. Drinks were very good overall great place. Definitely want to have reservations limited number of tables.
Food was really good. Much better snd much different than we expected.
welcoming atmosphere, excellent, unique food; really enjoyed our date.
