Fantastic food and excellent service. Everything exceeded our expectations. Try the carrots (appetizer) and the Surf and Surf - excellent!
The food and drinks were great! We’ll be back soon
Nice to eat somewhere with a menu beyond the standard brew pub offering. Really enjoyed the Lamb Shawarma. Moscow mule wasn’t great but not a big deal. I’d recommend.
Great food and service! Can’t wait to go back! Highly recommend!
The Sunday brunch menu is excellent!
great food!! service was good. drinks were perfect, one of the tequila and champagne drinks brought me back to Mexico. Highly recommend the duck mac and cheese and the brisket noodles. My mouth is watering thinking about the dishes.
Had a great evening with a long time friend...and the food and service was outstanding!
We were very pleasantly surprised with finding Rock City. Prices are low compared to similar restaurants, and food was very good. We went to dinner, then back for brunch the next day!
It was amazing food, drinks, and service!
It was a nice quiet place to have a date night. The service was great. The food was unique.
Could not recommend more! Service can be “meh” but the good more than makes up for it.
First time there but definitely not the last. Our server was professional, friendly and efficient. The Bloody Mart(s) we’re outside and a meal in themselves. The menu has something for everyone and is accommodating to all diets. You won’t be disappointed. Will be back soon.
Overrated in my opinion... another Detroit Metro restaurant going for an elevated spin on American dishes but coming up short.
Service year was excellent in very approachable in kind. They also had a wonderful understanding of their menu.
Phenomenal service, phenomenal food, priced well. Would recommend 10/10
Would love to have ice in the water...
We love your food. The music was quite loud so conversation was difficult.
Happy to have had so many gluten-free options clearly marked on the menu.
Excellent options for everyone in our party. We ordered three appetizers, brussel sprouts, green beans and pickles. Nothing shy on flavor. We even took our pickle juice and an extra jar to go. Many entrees had vegetarian and vegan options which was the main reason we chose to dine here. Portions were generous and most of us took leftovers home. The leftovers were just as delicious reheated two days later. Service was wonderful. We will be back.
The food and service was amazing! I have Celiacs disease and there were so many options for me to choose from! Would highly recommend!
The food and drinks here are AMAZING. The management was poor. The reservation situation was absurd. There were open tables the entire time we waited to be seated. We finally pushed to be seated, even though they were still waiting for “our table” to leave. That was 40 minutes after our reservation time. Someone needs to figure out how to manage the reservation/seating side of life there. Our other group of friends left after NEVER being seated, even though they had a reservation as well, and they had open tables. Food was fabulous, they just need someone in charge who knows what they’re doing.
Food and drinks were great!! The Oreo pie was amazing! Portions were good sizes and would definitely go back again!
We had a reservation and were unaware of the time limit on our reservation. We were told that the next party have arrived and we needed to wrap things up and leave.
I hadn't been here in a while, and even though the menu was not quite as large, the food was great! Sadly, I accidentally took the signed copy of the receipt, meaning our waitress didn't get her tip. I felt horrible. I called three times the next day and no one ever answered, including a call after 6 p.m.
Menu was simple and food was great! Very nice staff as well.
Really good food and drinks. Server was awesome. It was loud in there but the overall vibe was lively in a good way.
So LOUD. Really limited menu.
Everything from the food, drinks and atmosphere was awesome. Our server took good care of us and the quality of the food was great for the price. I can’t wait to go back. Most order items: Greek Carrots, Mac & Cheese & Steak Frites.
Amazing food! Isabel is great! Loved it.
the drinks and food were awesome, and I was able to make a last minute booking on valentines day. it was not over crowded, the staff was friendly, and the service was fast. we had brussel sprouts, umami fries, brisket noodles, and the korean hot pot. Everything was so flavorful and delicious. The korean hot pot was a bit spicier than we were anticipating, but it was still great.
Food was good and the service was good. I ordered the mac and cheese bowl and I would recommend it. My only complaint really was that it was freezing in the restaurant. I had to eat with my winter coat on and I was still cold.
Service was great and so was the food. Brussel sprouts are a must have.
The staff and food were excellent. I brought a large group so the noise level made it a bit difficult to discuss the business I came to do. However, I would definitely come back again.
This is my third time at RCE and it never disappoints! Especially Loved the Brussels sprouts and drinks! Will be back soon.
Great food, great service, and great ambiance. Loved this place! The prices are affordable and the helpings are large. I highly recommend the Mac & Cheese & Tater tots. Make sure you order a side of their homemade ranch to dip the tots in!
First time visit with the family. Wanted to try a new eatery in Midtown area. Found location in Open table. This place is small with limited seating. I liked the decor, but the music was loud and funky. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Good beer selection. We started with the pork nachos. Very flavorful and spicy. Two family members ordered the Mac n Cheese, which was the best value on the menu. My son ordered the $30 steak( yikes!) It was cooked to preference and served with French fries and side salad. The steak was a large cut and seasoned well. I ordered the chicken enchiladas, which were smothered in a spicy black bean sauce and topped with a shredded cheese. The overall experience was a little pricey for a quick family dinner. Nearby parking along WOODWARD and parking structure close by. I would come back again for the Mac n Cheese!!
Bar couldn't make a fairly simple drink, but as a mixologist you should be able to improvise and as guests we could see items on the menu that would allow one to do so. Would seem the bar isn't great at thinking creatively outside of the box. Could maybe need some guidance there.
We ate here one night before a concert. The nachos and the mac & cheese are awesome! The service is a little slow, but we did have a group of 6 so maybe that's why. I would definitely go back!
We found this while in town for a theater event. We had a great dining experience.
