Went here for drinks before eating elsewhere in the neighborhood. Dark atmosphere, but not depressing. Solid selection of beers and wines. Lots of fun stuff to try. But service was 'too cool for school' and fairly disinterested; this made the experience far less appealing, because...More

My daughter lives nearby and we walked over to what was framed as a "neighborhood" spot serving local foods. It was fantastic from start to finish. The entrance is through a small walkway entering from the side of it. It is cozy and informal on...More

We went to Rootstock after been to the theatre. Friendly staff and nice crowd - nice wise list and a good selection of beers. Had the burger - which was fine - but nothing spectacular. Relaxed place to hang out with friends and share stories!

The burger at Rootstock is sensational. It's a must. They clearly use high quality beef and they cooked it just the way I like it. They also toast the bun just a bit so that it compliments the burger perfectly. The fries are very good...More
