Service was pretty bad. Our server took forever to get out drink order and then it took a long time to get our drinks. He never came back to get our food order so we had to ask another server and he took our order and our food came out timely. Our guy just really sucked.

Great service & ambience! 3 people in our group ordered the fried chicken sandwich- it was a little dry! Steak salad was really good! Great place for big groups! Love the decor & music!

My friends and family went to rock and brews to celebrate my husbands birthday and had the most awful experience. I felt bad that I planned his birthday celebration there because of how awful the service was. It took over 5 times to ask the server for napkins and silverware. Those who ordered salads had to just sit there waiting for silverware while others had food. One of my friends didn’t receive his food until we were all done eating. I have been a server before so I understand when things get backed up but this was just unacceptable. We never got an apology until we asked to speak with the manager. Sadly we don’t plan on returning after this experience

My husband and I went there for his birthday dinner. I arrived early to drop off the cake and candle and told the hostesses I wanted it to be a surprise. The hostesses were nice and took my cake in to the fridge. However when we finished dinner, I had to find the server and told her that I have a cake, she brought the cake out without lighting the candle and just gave me the whole box of candle back on top of the utensils. I just wished they would have lit the candle before bringing the cake in to make my surprise more perfect.

We had a family get together of 4 for lunch. I had a reservation and we were seated immediately. Our server Rebecca was great. She was knowledgable regarding the food and drink menu and keep checking on us frequently. The food came pretty quick and it was hot and exactly as ordered (one person had specifics for a salad) and the servings are ample. Two of us took home leftovers. It was a great choice for our lunch!

Took my sistrrs for their birthdays. We were seated and never waited on after 20 minutes we asked a server if this was her table. She came back and told us we had no one until 6:30. Always loved this place but not anymore. Sad😔

Excellent service! They graciously took pics of our party for us and didn’t make us feel like we were bothering them at all. Food was good. Price was reasonable. My party ended up being more than I reserved but they did their best to accommodate us as quickly as possible and we appreciated that very much. Music was kind of loud but we could still talk to each other without leaning over and yelling. Great pick for a birthday dinner with my 12 friends.

Three of us had dinner and each ordered something different. All of the food was delicious. Two of the people split the brownie dessert, which was quite large and very yummy. The ambiance was good. Noise level was louder than we liked, but we managed to have a conversation.

It was Father's Day we had 3 orders of ribs which were delicious especially one for my Dad. I ordered a vegan burger, they gave it away to someone else, I waited for another to be made 30 minutes went by when they finally brought it to me it was cold, plate was cold, it was all cold so I asked if they could reheat it for me but they said they would have to make another one - by the time I got it another 30 minutes later...I was really hungry and had to ask where my food was before it arrived.
It was ok but nobody comes over to clean your table and we were left with piles of napkins and dishes from the ribs - we had a party of 12 there and our table was a mess. They need to take housekeeping lessons...I can only imagine what these young kids' rooms look like....sorry but I like to be taken care of when I dine out, not having to clean my own table....

We made a reservation for five and when we arrived they were ready to prepare a booth for us in the back - just as we had requested!
The drinks came out right away, and the appetizers were out quickly afterwards. We had ordered the jalapeño poppers and fried calamari, and they were both delicious. The main course orders were taken promptly and came out at just the right time. Our server was on point the whole time, and was key in making this a great experience for catching up with friends for a Saturday evening.

There were 7 of us. Most if the food was great. Pizza was great. Hamburgers stew always great. Pretzel is a favorite. The pastrami was a little dry though. The waitress was nice and pretty good but forgot a couple drinks. She mostly got our order correct but missed GF on one. Would be better if they wrote it down.

The food is so good and the price is Reasonable. My favorite are the Asian wings they are so good! The last time I was there I got the solman with the veggies and that was also very tasty. The only thing I would recommend is for Rock and brew to get better desserts. They need more of a variety because the food is so good and after you just want a desert to match up with the tasty food. They have purple rain drops which are donuts with purple feeling and bread pudding. I think there is one more but I dont remember.

Our waiter seemed very efficient at first but then dropped the ball. We ordered two appetizers but didn't get them. Never refilled water. Never checked to see if we needed anything. My husband order a second beer but it wasn't the same as his first one. Never saw the waiter again to tell him it was wrong.

We had issues with our food being brought out correctly initially but was then corrected in a timely fashion. I probably won't be coming back. I liked the overall set up of the restaurant and theme, but the food was just so, so.

I was expecting a great experience at Rock and Brews, but unfortunately was disappointed on many levels. It took 3 tries of ordering beers off of the menu before one was found that was actually in stock. We ordered an appetizer that was forgotten about. When we asked the person who brought out one meals side salad, she brushed us off and said it was probably still cooking (it wasn’t). I also sat with my side salad for at least 10 minutes before we could flag someone down for silverware. We then asked our server about the pretzel and she apologized. It eventually came out with our meal and they comped the pretzel. I ordered a burger with a veggie patty and no cheese. The burger I ordered did not list that there was bacon, but it came out with bacon on it. I would expect a server to clarify if someone is ordering a veggie patty if they still want bacon (which again was not listed on the menu). Again, they comped this burger, but I would have preferred better service over comping mistakes. Our drinks (sodas and water) were never refilled and we were never asked if we wanted another beer, even though our glasses were empty early on. Very disappointed by what I expected to be a good dinner with the strong reviews others had posted.

We had a great time celebrating my Girlfriend's birthday! The music was pretty good that night, wish the volume was a little higher to enjoy that part a little more. Food was great and service was pretty great too. Overall can't complain, we had a party of 12 and we all left pretty satisfied most importantly my Girlfriend loved it! Win Win, we will definitely be back!

Hostess seemed to have an issue with us moving a table over so that we could sit in a booth instead. Ordered garlic parmesan fries but it seemed more like garlic with a side of fries; they loaded the fries with garlic that we has to scrape it off to enjoy it. Didn’t enjoy going this time and it’s making me reconsider ever going back to this location.

I’m tracking my food on my Fitbit app right now and my husband wanted to come here for dinner so I was a little worried about finding something decent to eat.
I ordered the blackened salmon dinner. It was SOOOOOO good. The salmon rub had some kick to it and it was cooked perfectly! The broccoli was the long this Chinese kind. That was also cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were also awesome. It’s always risky ordering fish at this type of place but they know what they’re doing. My family all enjoyed their meals also-Burgers, chicken and tacos. We’ll be back!
