I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly and happy service who were very enthusiastic about how great the food was there. The food was truly amazing and was a good portion, I would totally recommend eating there or enjoying the nightly entertainment.

“Good Tuesday night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Enjoyed the Tuesday night quiz night recently at Chicago Rock Cafe. Wasn't sure what to expect, but the place had style after its recent revamp. Liked the booth style seating which worked well for easy conversation. As an added bonus, there is a buy-one-get-one-free on the mains on a Tuesday which makes it great value. Food was tasty and portions large (especially the desserts!). The quiz itself was very good - long enough to feel worthwhile, but pacey so it didn't drag. A really good range of questions and nice to see there are a few regular teams. Also an option to win money with the spin-the-wheel game at the end as well. All in all, good value for money, a fun night out and prompt and attentive service. Have already asked around at work to get a team together for a return visit...

“Tasty food, awfully RUDE service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

After returning from University to visit the family, I was really looking forward to spending a lunch together. We decided to visit Chicago Rock to see the recent changes & we always enjoyed eating at Modello's so thought we'd give it a go.

I have to admit, except for the lights (Love them!) the decor is actually worse than Modello. They've managed to make what was once a light, airy establishment very dark, dingy and it actually feels quite dirty in there. Most disappointing.

What was more disappointing, though, was the poor service. Infact, some of the worst I have ever witnessed and experienced. We were taken by our waiter (in an empty restaurant) to a table with ripped seats. Seriously? You have only been open several months. Very poor. We were then asked, within a second of sitting and catching our breath, if we were ready to order drinks. There's a pleasant looking wine list on the table, at least let us look at it.

Once it came to ordering, our waiter was extremely smug, rude and incredibly sarcastic. I ordered water which was replied with 'Water? That's boring. Oh well'...Wow, really? Does this man want me to drink and drive? He then carried our drinks over and informed us that he believes carrying drinks should be an Olympic Sport. Cringe. When it came to ordering food, he had to come back after we ordered as he forgot to ask if we wanted Popcorn Chicken or Prawns. This is in an empty restaurant, by the way. Nope, I couldn't believe it either.

The food arrived and I really enjoyed mine. Certainly cannot fault it, the chef seems to be doing a very good job. I had the Sharing Platter, complete with Loaded Nachos, Pulled Pork Burrito, Popcorn Chicken, Ribs & a side order of Fries. Each component was delicious. We all enjoyed it very much so please pass my compliments onto the chef.

One of the members of the party ordered a Mohjito to drink. The woman behind the bar placed it on a wooden plank on the table which she didn't warn us about (it slid around alot) and so unforunately the drink slipped and went all over the table.

What did the lady do?

Help? Haha, next joke. She laughed her head off. She couldn't control herself. Laughing at someones misfortunate is extremely poor form, especially when you are serving them. As it wasn't entirely our fault, we expected her to perhaps to make another one for us, or to atleast knock it off the bill. Neither happened. We were shocked.

We won't be returning as we did enjoy the food but unfortunately the service wasn't good enough.

Thank you for some very nice food though!

“Food and cocktails :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Excellent range of cocktails on the menu, managed to get though half of them :)
A lot of choice on the menu. Me and my friend had the fajitas and the presentation and taste were faultless. We ran out if wraps and were surprised when the waitress offered us more. Will be back again soon

Went on Wednesday evening for my girlfriends birthday and all 4 of us really impressed.
Fantastic service, really friendly attentive staff and surprisingly amazing food. Their burgers are the best in Yeovil hands down.
