Our Rock-inspired menu has something for everyone – from burgers and pasta to salads and appetizers, plus specialty drinks, a full-service bar and lots of Rock music – The Rock is your complete entertainment experience!

We opened our doors in 1995 as a gritty, local pizza joint in Tacoma with gourmet pizzas, special microbrews and Rocktails, and a unique atmosphere that quickly gained recognition as a venue for everyone.

Made a reservation and they wouldn’t even seat us because they said it was an hour wait even though there was no one standing and waiting to be seated! They said they didn’t have enough employees to serve us so we were literally turned away. Can’t say I have ever experienced that before!

Pre concert meal. Waitress couldn’t have moved slower despite the hostess saying we’d have no time getting to the concert in time. Pizza was okay but nothing to write home about and the app portions were small

I have to admit that I LOVE this place! First - The staff is Friendly - Fast bit not Pushy and we never felt rushed!

The decor is very Rockish! (See the pics) - we felt valued!
The Food is amazing! I had the fish and chips others had the pizza and one person had the Cajun pasta everyone had nothing but good things to say about the food.

The drinks were cold they were always full... they did run out of coffee but that's OK.... who goes to this place to drink coffee? Lol

Our waiter who we will call David Spade, I forgot his name, was extremely attentive... making sure we were comfortable we had everything that we needed and that we were taking care of... employees like him is what makes these places successful!!!

And short thank you... and I have to say...

"Can you smell what the rock is cooking!!!!" Lol

This was a surprise birthday party with a group of about 12 people. It would have been nice to have the upstairs but our party was last minute and you fit us in and made a great space for us. The food was amazing and everyone loved what they ate. The bar did a great job making all the guest feel great.

We met some friends here and sat in the bar. We were able to get in and seated quickly and had our drinks within a couple of minutes. The food is good and they will work around your dietary issues (dairy for me). They didn't pester us to much as we wound up sitting there quite a while watching the Dallas Cowboys play after we had dinner. Overall a 3.5 to 4.0 experience

The meatball mac and cheese wasn't the best. The mac and cheese was good but the meatballs were not cooked very well, a little soft and for the price I expected a much better quality. The service was wonderful great server. She was very attentive. If I come back will try something different

My "last pizza" before "the diet", so glad it was this one!! Yummy basic Founders Pie! I can't wait for a cheat day to do it again.
Thanks for accommodating our small group of teens and their parents!

The combination of poor food with average service (at best) will most likely spell doom to this restaurant. It all started out with having no ginger beer for a moscow mule at 5:30pm on a Saturday night. Would stay away and try somewhere else.

You were out of ribs which ruined the visit for a few in our party. It was my birthday and server was told but no special notice, not even a "happy birthday" from our server. She never offered anyone a second round for the 5 of us having drinks. Two in our party had tea but she only refilled for one of those. We could have asked her but she was never around when these issues needed addressing. We had to go find her to give her a 20% tip she did not deserve on our $192.00 bill.

Terrible experience. Went for a work birthday lunch get together with a group of 11. They gave us two tables that would barely fit all of us. The tables looked like they could seat 8 total. There was one waitress for our entire side of the restaurant and she was in no hurry for anything. Again, it was lunch time and there weren’t that many people dining. Drinks were slow, food was slow, and all around service was slow. Food was mediocre. For the price we could have gone two doors down to Saltgrass. There were also flies all around our table. Would not recommend for any occasion.

The pizza was tasty. Very noisy and booths are parallel which sounds like the person to your left or right in another booth is talking directly in your ear. The serving pizza trays blocked the aisle not allowing two tables to walk past us without moving. The temperature of the restaurant was uncomfortably warm and it was a cool outside. Drinks were good and our server was very good.

Wow the Pizza was REALLY REALLY good. Meatball appetizer was great. Salads were salads. But did i say PIZZA WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD!!!

Would definitely do this pizza again. Crust was crunchy cooked on bottom with really awesome bread soft chewy consistency below.

Was also SUPER PLEASED that the music in this Rock-n-Roll themed place was at an AWESOME LOW MANAGEABLE LEVEL. It was never over powering.

The main reason I picked this place was because of the kids menu. Turned out to be a good choice. We tried 2 different pizzas and both were very good. I like thin crust pizzas and their's was perfect. My grandson absolutely loved the mac' n cheese, he said it was very cheesy and yummy!

Went with my family to celebrate my fateher’s birthday. The food was good but the service was not. And I was very disappointed in how I had asked before hand when I made reservations to make it a special night, and that clearly did not happen. This is usually one my families favorite places to go but now I’m not so sure.

The food was really good. We sat at the bar. Our bartender was Regina. She was good. The only thing that could have been better with her is to not our beers sit empty for short periods of time. She was very nice though. We loved the atmosphere. My only real complaint was that the music was down way too low. That was the maim reason we decided to try the place out. They had the t.v. up too loud for it to be a rock bar. Go to Boston's across the street if you want to listen to the game. Leave the rock bar to the rock music. Overall i enjoyed it though and will be back. Hopefully to hear music more next time.
