Nice atmosphere and attentive service. You can make any burger in the menu as a veggie burger, so the Rookery has a number of selections for veggie burger toppings.

We went on a Saturday afternoon and were able to sit down without a wait, although the line grew quickly shortly after we arrived. The fried pickle spears (yes, whole spears!) were better than any fried pickle I've had, and the jalapeno ranch that accompanies them is deliciously spicy. Their burger options are different and after trying the Walden Greenback... More

Some of the best burgers on the planet. Cool dim lighting with a bar area to watch a game or to listen to music from a great audio system.

Got new management quite a while ago (wouldn't have considered eating here 8 years ago) Been going here for years. Great place. Always fun.

"Gourmet" is not quite the right word to describe The Rookery, but the burgers there are certainly different. Not different in the mushroom foam sort of way, but different all the same. They are named for local legends (Otis Redding, Allman Brothers, etc.) You probably shouldn't eat there every week, but it's a great place to go for a casual... More

The hamburgers are my Go-to favorites. They are hand formed/made from premium beef and there are so many toppings to chose from. You will be very impressed!

I visited this restaurant after hearing many good things about it. It did not disappoint. In addition to a great atmosphere, the food was awesome. I ordered the fried green tomato BLT, which was full of flavor and delicious. The homemade milkshakes are also great. I love this place.

I stopped at this place while driving through Macon because my sister recommended it! I tried the soup of the day which was beef stew. There wasn't much beef or veggies in it and it was a little salty but it had a good taste to it. I had the steak frites which is the ribeye steak plate. It was... More

I love going to the Rookery, whether it is a business lunch or weekend meal with the family. The wait staff is fret and attentive, and their food is delicious. I always get the patty melt, it is delicious!

The food and atmosphere is always excellent. Their pimento cheese is amazing and cheese board and pretty much everything I've had there except the salads. Those are a bit blah. The mashed potatoes and salmon are excellent as well. My husband loves their burgers and floats.
