Nice place with unique menu down from the Coronado

Visited here on a Saturday early afternoon. Upon entering we were told to seat ourselves but picked a table that hadn't been cleared and set yet (whoops), as there were only a few open ones to choose from. The decor is eclectic and bright colored. I'm sure this place is nicer looking at night when... read more

I was looking for a nice place to have a quick dinner and a brew before heading to a hockey game with a friend 2 blocks away at the Metro Center. I did not have reservations, but was provided a seat at the bar without waiting. Great selection of beer, and food. I chose an Octane burger with white cheddar,... More

This chef and his restaurant would be a standout in any big city in the country. The food is imaginative, well executed, well presented and the flavors combinations are awesome. The service is friendly and professional. I had lunch of the Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwich - butterkäse • mozzarella • a heap-o-pulled pork • caramelized onions • on butter-toasted country... More

My wife had the mac and cheese (seasonal?) and I had the blue cheese burger. Both were phenomenal. It's a must-go if you're downtown.

I love this place! Creative food and the Hawaii 5-0 burrito is outstanding! I've eaten here 5-6 times and it never disappoints!

Octane was my favorite restaurant for many years. I went last weekend and the new menu was not appealling. All my favorite dishes were gone. The one appetizer I thought about was overpriced. We left hungry and disappointed. Thankfully we ended up not ordering and went to another local restaurant instead and my food was delicious!

The tastes that Chef Patrick brings to the table are like no other. The staff is second to none. Relaxing and refreshing experience

It was a year since my last visit but I recall it having a lively menu. This is a definite go to in Rockford. It's hip and social. You will see a young and mature here. It's the kind of eatery you might find near a university. The food is delicious. I ordered a burger with pineapple and cheese. There... More
