Great decor inside. Drinks were outstanding. Had the Manhattan. Also we tried many apps and loved them all. Wait staff was helpful and provided great tips on food and drinks. Enjoyed the new indoor look for winter.

Alchemy is the place to be in Rockford for a late night snack and beverage. A bit upscale and classy, quiet and great live music across the hall. I would go here if you want a nimble and a drink. Love the atmosphere, bartender could have been a bit more prompt.

Ate here at Big Al's Bar and had the best pastrami sandwich ever. My husband had the Cuban burger which was also delicious. My son had the pineapple surprise pizza which had just the right balance of crust, sauce and toppings. Service was great. The waitress told us they make their own pastrami over three weeks. She also made great suggestions for beers to go with our menu choices.

This was a great banquet venue. The parking was plentiful the crowd was big but we were moved from the room with cocktails to the room with dinner with ease. The service was quick and flawless. The food was good for a group of 300 plus. A good place to hold a big party.

Some friends suggested we meet there on a busy Friday night. The staff was friendly and helped us get a table. We had appetizers and a spaghetti and meatball Brick oven pizza. It was surprising delicious. Everything was fresh and delicious. I would definitely go back.
