The décor was pretty interesting. The restaurant was clean. The owner came out and greeted us. He made sure to walk around the restaurant numerous times throughout the evening. The staff was very friendly but the service level was subpar. These are a some of the issues we had. When they brought my glass of wine to the table there... More

We literally waited 45 minutes for our table, enjoying a drink at the bar. Once we started to notice others who arrived after us were being seated, we asked. They gave away our table. No apology, no offer to make it right. We left and will never go back.

Read many good reviews so decided to give it a try. Anything to get away from the chains. First of all we had a great server in Joe. Good selection of drafts. My husband had the steak and shrimp and he said it was excellent. The steak was excellent and the cocktail sauce had just the right amount of horseradish.... More

We enjoy the ambiance of the tavern from the classic model racing boat to the motorcycle in the lounge. It's one of our favorites. We celebrated two birthdays on Sunday and were able to bring our own cake...rare for restaurants these days. We were not rushed and enjoyed the occasion. Enjoyed their selection of menu items, something for everyone's palate.

This place was a former Cheddars building. Location is great on State Street but the menu is confusing and has no identity. Everything from Hush Puppies to Tacos. Menu is confusing even to read.. When I go somewhere to eat I want to know what it is, American, Pub Fare, Mexican, etc. This place is all over. Portions were smallish... More

We were in town for a tournament and randomly picked this place. Wow did we get lucky!! The restaurant has a great atmosphere--both inside and outside--and the people that work there are very kind and friendly. The very charming owner even stopped by our table to talk and really turned it into a fun, very special evening instead of just... More

The eclectic record of the Stone Eagle is one of the best things to see in Rockford. Most pieces have a specific history and explanation to accompany the visual interest. (There's even a guide booklet with info about the pieces.) The food variety is quiet extensive from Fresh seafood to word fire over pizza, to burgers, to steaks from one... More

What a cool place to eat! I had to visit Rockford for a set of business meetings and went to this place between appointments. You'll literally recognize it because it has eagles made of stone at the doorway. It was delightful. The menu is big with many selections and the service was great and the decor is interesting and fun... More

Eat as you can afford! I have eaten here with minimal cash, and when I had a group to feed! The menu is large enough to eat here every day of the month and still not be tired of it! I am just sorry I waited so long to try it! this is the place to go for a business... More

My husband and our children went to dinner on a Friday evening and a terrible experience. We ordered cocktails and were never served waters. My husband ordered a steak (medium rare) and when it was served to him, the server asked him to cut into it and see how it looked. He did. It was well done. He said as... More
