Good Service and entertains karaoke

Decent food menu and well known for area karaoke singers to come and enjoy the evening. We sat by the bar and the service was very good. Fun place!

On King Street in Old Town Alexandria, you have about 40 restaurants and bars to choose from. In a two-week stay, I tried a number of them, and this is the one I came back to. Rock It is just a good old bar and grill with a great comfy atmosphere and tasty food at reasonable prices. Rana, the bar... More

Go there on a Tuesday for half-price burgers. The burgers are very good. Go there when they have karaoke - you'll find some great karaoke and some great entertainment.

Stopped in for lunch with my husband and 13 year old son. Took a long time for anyone to come over and greet us. Strike One. I ordered Nachos and my first clue that there was going to be an issue is when the server, who did not write anything down, came back and asked me how I wanted my... More

I went in to have something to eat and watch the end of a ball game. The bartenders were very nice and very attentive. I enjoyed the food, though not a big fan of putting fish tacos in pita instead of a tortilla. I scraped the food out of the toasted pita and it was fine. I also had the... More

This place quite alright. I came here for karaoke and some grub/drinks and left happy. The DJ is chill and can sing (and dance) quite well; the handling of karaoke is fine,too. The beer and food selection is great for the theme, ad the waiters serve well. If you want to kick back, this is a decent place to go... More

Great staple on King St in Old Town Alexandria. I've been here a few times while on Business. If you like to unwind with a couple of beers and belt out a song or two this place is awesome. Great night guys. thx

This is Old Town's "classic version" of a dive bar. Nestled on King Street, near the tony shops, businesses and hotels, the Rock It does heavy ad buys on ESPN and Spike late at night touting its karaoke, fun times and food. The RIG is not fine diving by any means so don't expect white tablecloths. If you want a... More

Thanks for leaving us this review. While it's great to hear that you enjoyed our drinks and hanging out with us, I was sorry to see that we didn't earn a higher rating from you. We always want our guests to have a great time, but we get that our vibe might not be for everyone. Still, I hope you'll... More
