Our server really took care of us. She made us feel like we belong! Food was great as usual and was fresh, brought to us hot. Water was topped off and drinks kept flowing. No pressures at all.

My salmon sandwich was soggy and kinda exploded to where I couldn't set it down. Server disappeared when we wanted to order dessert. Other than that , it was fine!

We had to track down a manger for help after 10 mins of no service after getting seated. Several water cups still had lipstick stains on it. One of app plates was also dirty along with the wine glass that was served to us. The pretzel was good but the beer cheese sauce was mediocre at best with little cheesy flavor. Entree was fine (fish tacos and burgers) and the beer was good. Based on the cleanliness level of the plates and cups I would hesitate on returning here again.

Only bad thing about the night was the service.
Our server was friendly but she just didn’t do her job . We had a group of seven she brought our 5 of our drinks and 2 of our appetizers but she didn’t bring the other two drinks or the other appetizer and we waited and waited we finally asked her she said oh I forgot and that was it we had to wait another 15 minutes for to bring this the rest the stuff and we told her we were celebrating your birthday. She didn’t even wish my sister a happy birthday .
we tried to flag her down a few times but she was always behind the counter doing something or cleaning out to the little fridge she’s just was never present.
When we got our food it was good the drinks were yummy but service was bad.

It was good but the service was so slow that we had to continuously ask for things over and over again because they kept forgetting. Our waiter went on break, we got a new one, then he came back some things kept slipping through the cracks. Food was good and honestly was the only saving grace.

Service was pretty bad. Our server took forever to get out drink order and then it took a long time to get our drinks. He never came back to get our food order so we had to ask another server and he took our order and our food came out timely. Our guy just really sucked.

My friends and family went to rock and brews to celebrate my husbands birthday and had the most awful experience. I felt bad that I planned his birthday celebration there because of how awful the service was. It took over 5 times to ask the server for napkins and silverware. Those who ordered salads had to just sit there waiting for silverware while others had food. One of my friends didn’t receive his food until we were all done eating. I have been a server before so I understand when things get backed up but this was just unacceptable. We never got an apology until we asked to speak with the manager. Sadly we don’t plan on returning after this experience

My husband and I went there for his birthday dinner. I arrived early to drop off the cake and candle and told the hostesses I wanted it to be a surprise. The hostesses were nice and took my cake in to the fridge. However when we finished dinner, I had to find the server and told her that I have a cake, she brought the cake out without lighting the candle and just gave me the whole box of candle back on top of the utensils. I just wished they would have lit the candle before bringing the cake in to make my surprise more perfect.

We had a family get together of 4 for lunch. I had a reservation and we were seated immediately. Our server Rebecca was great. She was knowledgable regarding the food and drink menu and keep checking on us frequently. The food came pretty quick and it was hot and exactly as ordered (one person had specifics for a salad) and the servings are ample. Two of us took home leftovers. It was a great choice for our lunch!

Took my sistrrs for their birthdays. We were seated and never waited on after 20 minutes we asked a server if this was her table. She came back and told us we had no one until 6:30. Always loved this place but not anymore. Sad😔

Excellent service! They graciously took pics of our party for us and didn’t make us feel like we were bothering them at all. Food was good. Price was reasonable. My party ended up being more than I reserved but they did their best to accommodate us as quickly as possible and we appreciated that very much. Music was kind of loud but we could still talk to each other without leaning over and yelling. Great pick for a birthday dinner with my 12 friends.

Three of us had dinner and each ordered something different. All of the food was delicious. Two of the people split the brownie dessert, which was quite large and very yummy. The ambiance was good. Noise level was louder than we liked, but we managed to have a conversation.

It was Father's Day we had 3 orders of ribs which were delicious especially one for my Dad. I ordered a vegan burger, they gave it away to someone else, I waited for another to be made 30 minutes went by when they finally brought it to me it was cold, plate was cold, it was all cold so I asked if they could reheat it for me but they said they would have to make another one - by the time I got it another 30 minutes later...I was really hungry and had to ask where my food was before it arrived.
It was ok but nobody comes over to clean your table and we were left with piles of napkins and dishes from the ribs - we had a party of 12 there and our table was a mess. They need to take housekeeping lessons...I can only imagine what these young kids' rooms look like....sorry but I like to be taken care of when I dine out, not having to clean my own table....

We made a reservation for five and when we arrived they were ready to prepare a booth for us in the back - just as we had requested!
The drinks came out right away, and the appetizers were out quickly afterwards. We had ordered the jalapeño poppers and fried calamari, and they were both delicious. The main course orders were taken promptly and came out at just the right time. Our server was on point the whole time, and was key in making this a great experience for catching up with friends for a Saturday evening.

There were 7 of us. Most if the food was great. Pizza was great. Hamburgers stew always great. Pretzel is a favorite. The pastrami was a little dry though. The waitress was nice and pretty good but forgot a couple drinks. She mostly got our order correct but missed GF on one. Would be better if they wrote it down.

Their sauces are amazing! (we had some BBQ and Buffalo sauces with our meals) The food was quick and fresh, our server was wonderful and attentive to us. The music is loud, but it's great music so who cares! :) I will definitely be back.

The food is so good and the price is Reasonable. My favorite are the Asian wings they are so good! The last time I was there I got the solman with the veggies and that was also very tasty. The only thing I would recommend is for Rock and brew to get better desserts. They need more of a variety because the food is so good and after you just want a desert to match up with the tasty food. They have purple rain drops which are donuts with purple feeling and bread pudding. I think there is one more but I dont remember.
