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

Octane is my choice in downtown Rockford when I want an American fare that is not costly, is creative, and has an urban vibe. The service is fast and the choice of hot teas are excellente'! Pay them a visit when you're downtown and looking for a place to eat.

We have been to Octane several times over the past few months. The variety of offerings is excellent as is the quality. The chef comes up with some unique soups and entrees. Definitely worth visiting.
