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

Overall, the atmosphere was great the waitress on the other hand not so much. I came in with a group of friends we initially decided we were going to start off with some waters and dinner as we waited for the rest of the group to arrive. This older woman who said her name was Linda was our waitress. When... More

It's surprising to hear about your visit with us, Kiley. You should always have helpful and friendly service, and Linda is usually more than happy to assist our guests. You can understand that everyone has a bad night, and I can only assume this was the case with her, but I plan to follow up with your comments here so... More

We were in town for a long weekend in DC when we found Rock It Grill. It looks like a small road house bar and grill not to far from the hotel. We decided to give it a try. We were impressed by the service. Our waitress was very attentive but not pushy. We all had sandwiches. My wife had... More

This place is seriously so much fun. I came here this this past Saturday with a few friends, I loved that the waitress had taken the time to separate our checks in the beginning with separate cards, this has been a big issue of mine in other bars where they get everything mixed up. She also, delt with me not... More
