Reviewed January 30, 2013

A little to loud for me, but service is good despite how crowdy it could get. I went the a couple of times and always had a good time

“My favorite hangout in ChiTown”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

I travel to Chicago for work and never miss going here for a beer and a snack. The Kobe burger, crab dip, wings, truffle fries, and hummus and veggie plate have all been good. The bartenders are very friendly and knowledgeable about both the food and beer menus. I recently had Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' based on the bartender's recommendation. Thumbs up!

Great place to watch a game or go upstairs to shoot pool.

“The food was just average”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We found this bar/grill to be overpriced for what it was. We had to wait for a table (apparently reservations are needed) and most of the clientele appeared to be under 30.

“Great food and drink.”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Had a liquid breakfast here and it was really really good. Might be the best Bloody Mary I have ever had, then throw the fixings bar and you have something really special here! Also the chorizo and egg burrito I had was just a work of art. Was a great time for breakfast here, can't wait to go back!

“Amazing burgers”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We ate at Rockit about 9 months ago and based on our first experience, decided to return. This time the service was slow and inattentive, but the food did not disappoint. Skip the sweet potato and/or truffle fries (soggy) and just stick with the original fries as your side (crisp on the outside, soft on the inside). The Angus and locavore burgers are both outstanding. Lots of toppings to make them your own. The room isn't huge, so consider making a reservation for busy times. It's also pretty loud.
