    I am not a big fan of restaurants that have a club feel. I was there for a Mother's Day brunch which probably was not the best idea for trying a place we had never been to before. Not a big fan of hookah so it didn't matter where you set you had to be exposed. The buffet with subpar.

    We picked this restaurant out of the blue for my boyfriends birthday. We had a blast and the service was fantastic. The food was great but the best part were the cocktails they have great bartenders.

    Food was very salty and service was lacking. The music was extremely loud which in my opinion was unnecessary. I don’t mind music being a bit loud in a restaurant but man it was like a club volume. I’m good on this place tho

    The buffet food was really good, and our server was very attentive. We sat in the live music lounge and the band played great music. Only negative is that a speaker for the music was hanging right by our table so we couldn’t hear each other talk.

    10/10 recommend!! The brunch buffet line was delicious so many options. The service was also on point I didn’t catch her name but she was attentive & on point. The live band was entertaining only thing I would suggest is to bring the volume down a little. It was so loud that we couldn’t place our drink order with our server. Brunch here is a must try!!

    They changed their reservation blocks after people already scheduled and tried to charge and seat elsewhere… I come here every Friday… the music was said to start at 7 starting this day and that’s why they changed it but the music as advertised didn’t start until well after 8pm.

    Rock is our weekly happy hour spot. The happy hour has $3 You Call It's. The food is delicious! The The service is normally great, but during yesterday's Mike Epps hosted night, some of our crew received bad service when they initially arrived.

    Though the food was good, our server was terrible. It wasn’t even packed on our side near the buffet. We didn’t even ask for much from her bc she was either preoccupied with the other tables or it took forever to get our drinks. Then on top of it, she gave us another tables check. Even further, one card was charged when we asked for it to be split. She was nice but seemed incompetent. Also there was no sweet tea or ginger beer which is disappointing for the restaurant to be called a southern kitchen. I also didn’t like that I came at 3 and was forced to do the buffet. The ambiance was nice but I’m not sure if I’ll be back bc it’s a lot of options in the city to not get my drinks in a timely manner. I rarely get out and I was hosting friends from out of town and they were disappointed.

    The waitress didn’t know the menu (food or drinks). Once Mary learns the menu I think she’ll do well but the food was amazing. The drinks were mediocre at best. I’ll give it another try just because of the food quantity and quality.

    The waitress was unreasonably slow to respond and serve. She gave us excuses that did not make sense. She had an attitude and made us feel like she did not want to be at work that day. We came to celebrate my MIL’s birthday. We made a reservation, answered the special occasion questions, included a birthday note in the comments, asked for a slice of bday cake twice and still did not get it. It was most of our first time there. It was so disappointing.

    Lately Rockhouse has been our go to spot for great food, delicious drinks, and great music. We’ve ordered a variety of food catfish, mac and cheese, oxtail sliders (my personal favorite), soul rolls, burger, etc. every time it’s hot, fresh, and consistent. The servers are attentive and proactive. The music is on point. It doesn’t matter what time of day you go it’s always a good vibe.
