Great fresh food and an awesome atmosphere

My friends and I eat here monthly. They have a seasonal, unique menu and I've never had anything I didn't love. Definitely recommended.

This place has been around for a while. It's always been a decent place to grab some food. They have amazing bloody Mary's and the food is decent. The staff is rude and pushy with massive attitude problems. The area above the entry way is disgusting, see my picture for details.

Hello Ryan, Please forgive us for the inconvenience we had caused, you may have very well caught us on our bad night/day just like any business we are prone to one of those.I assure you my staff is generally well behaved at their respective tables and would never be brash or aggressive towards our guests. I hope we can make... More

We've been to Octane several times, it's one of our favorite places in town. I haven't be disappointed by a meal, and the Ridgerunnner Quesadilla and Hawaii 5-0 Burrito are a couple of our go to items to order. Their Saturday brunch is amazing - awesome to take visiting friends to! But what really nudged me to write a review... More

This place has a very unique menu, lots of choices not found on a chain restaurant menu. Servers are very good and service was fast. Has a hippie/modern feel.

The food here is absolutely amazing! The chef should be complimented. It's a great place for lunch during the week or for a cocktail and wifi in the evening. I'm happy to see a successful venue on Rockford's west side.

Over the years I've come to rely on Octane for excellent food, good ingredients, and a reasonable price. Octane becomes a habit if you're in the habit of eating quality, healthy food on a regular basis. Plus, the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I really like the place so much to try it again! Got the burrito and it was super delicious my husband got a hamburger and it was exquisite and it's because of the meat, so fresh and tastefully. We got the chocolate nachos to share, they were different and really good :)

My boyfriend and I went here last month and loved the service and food. We came back this month and overall still had a good experience, but the service wasn't quite as good. They sat us at a table and it took over 5 minutes to get menus. They do have amazing potato wedges and I love their coffee. They... More
