We come through Rockford a couple of times to visit family every year and have always enjoyed picking up a pizza to go at the Stone Eagle. We usually enjoy a drink in the festive bar while waiting. We normally do not have high expectations for this type of Midwestern establishment, but have been pleasantly surprised in the past by... More

We ate lunch here today and had the BEST fried Walleye sandwich! Could hardly finish it. Very fresh and cooked to perfection! Waitress was so very kind and prompt with coffee and food. Way to go! We'll be back and bring our friends.

We stopped for an unplanned lunch and we were very happy we did so. The menu is quite large with many items to choose from. The food was good with no complaints from any of us. The restaurant itself is really neat, a lot to look at and no end to what might be discovered. The real plus to the... More

The menu is quite varied and ambitious which the culinary skill can't quite match. The food is not great but the place is charming--filled with detritus and local artifacts from older establishments that have either gone away or been refurbished. The woman who waited on us was also not great but charming. She started off saying she'd been crying all... More

This restaurant is consistently inconsistent. Menu is way, way too ambitious. Nothing is great - everything is average. Has gone downhill since opening and Jim's interest was redirected to his new place in the suburbs. A shame actually.

My grandpa suggested we go to this restaurant, and I'm SO glad he did. First of all, the menu is huge and EVERYTHING sounds so delicious. I went with the BLT and I can tell you, it's ruined all other BLTs for me. This thing comes on a delicious pretzel roll and is LOADED a with bacon. It's like an... More

We visited here in the middle of the afternoon, wanting drinks and an appetizer. The waiter suggested the fried calamari, which was plenty for four of us! It was delicious and crispy, just right to go with cold drinks. We'll try dinner here the next time we go through Rockford.
