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.

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!

This was my first time at Rock and Brews. I figured it would be loud, but I didn’t expect to have to yell to the person sitting next to me. The mixed drinks are cheap but have very little alcohol in them. Food is eh, I was the only one in my party who really enjoyed the meal. I got the bbq half chicken. The service was not amazing and the busboy threw my friend’s appetizer away before he was done with it because he misheard him asking him to leave it because of the noise. Come if you like losing your voice over drinks. Otherwise, not recommending this for a meal.

We made reservations here for my daughter's birthday. The food and service was decent EXCEPT that we went there for a celebration. She got an ice cream scoop plopped on the table...nothing else. Just an ice cream scoop and a "have a good one". Not a great place for celebration but, maybe beer.

This was a special occasion. Due to each sibling's children's immediate family increasing, thus, requiring these families to conduct their own Christmas Day festivities, the siblings decided to bring everyone together at a venue that would accommodate the group. We were pleased that Rock and Brews was selected. The majority of us had only heard of this restaurant. When we arrived and were shown the patio area where we would be seated, it was with anticipation of a great occasion that we all found our seats. However, great anticipation changed to frustration as we waited and waited for a server to take our order. After close to 20 minutes, I finally summoned the manager and asked for a server. He apologized and promptly brought over a server. Not 2 or 3 servers to handle our large group...just 1 server! It was another almost 10 minutes until our drinks were served. We consume our drinks and were seeking a refill(s) while we waited a long while for our food to be served. No complaints about the food or drink...they were both delicious and refreshing. Our disappointment was in the service. As we were leaving, we found out that our server was not originally assigned our area, but in a panic, was brought over from her own area that was quite bustling. It was very obvious that management dropped the ball on this one...although a reservation had been made through Open Table.
