I have only gone for lunch, but the salads, the burgers and the sandwiches are great. There's a pool table in the back, but at lunchtime you can sit at the window and people watch. It's quiet and a good place to visit. I bet it's busier at night.

Visiting DC since 2009 twice a year, I have enjoyed many karaoke spots in both Alexandria and DC. I can't help but give Rock It a 5 in the karaoke aspect. This year in particular was surprisingly smooth! Over the years, there have been a variety of DJ's. This year I first met Billy. What a nice guy! He kept... More

The good, bad and ugly. The good; a fun place to hang out with friends to do or watch karaoke or play pool and get a drink. The bad; except for the bartenders the service is spotty. Friendly waitresses but a bit scattered. The ugly; the food. Don't go here to eat. Typical bar food which can also be attributed... More

Food is definitely ok, you get what you pay. No more - no less. Minus point is the service. Some evenings some tables never got cleaned. Others everything was fine and fast... Mixed drinks were ok and not too expensive... If you like karaoke great fun - if not you should really choose something else😉

We stopped here for dinner, and the food was delicious. There were a lot of options to choose from. If you don't want to sit in the bar area, there is a section near the door with secluded booths. Server was quick and nice as well.

Went in on a Saturday with a mate to watch basketball and karaoke broke out. Every night they have it starting at 930pm. Menu was good with bar food and mexican mostly. Happy hours daily from 3 to 7. When we left at 11pm they were queueing up to get in. If you are looking for fun in Old Town... More

Decent food menu and well known for area karaoke singers to come and enjoy the evening. We sat by the bar and the service was very good. Fun place!

On King Street in Old Town Alexandria, you have about 40 restaurants and bars to choose from. In a two-week stay, I tried a number of them, and this is the one I came back to. Rock It is just a good old bar and grill with a great comfy atmosphere and tasty food at reasonable prices. Rana, the bar... More

Go there on a Tuesday for half-price burgers. The burgers are very good. Go there when they have karaoke - you'll find some great karaoke and some great entertainment.
