I love this place again. I loved it years ago and then it went down hill but it's back. Just after the ownership change a couple of years ago, I thought the place was a goner but it's slowly worked it's way back.

Was there to watch football today and couldn't help but notice the really cheap beers (pints - plentiful selection), wonderful server and the usual large numbers of high quality TVs pumping out NFL action. The food is about the same at it ever was but frankly, I never had a problem with it. Anyone who goes to a sports bar expecting the food to be much better than it is at The Rockhouse is destined for a life of crushing disappointments. I think it's quite good for sports bar food.

It's always a fun crowd and has a light airy feel to it. Jen, our server, was fantastic and good humored and fine with the fact that we were going to take up a table for more than 3 hours while very slowly eating a couple of plates of chicken wings and some potato skins. Touchdown!

The only good thing about our dining experience here was their salad. Unfortunately, we paid $20 for a New York Steak and $17 for Baby Back Ribs...neither one of which were very good at all. Steak was overcooked, ribs were tough and the mashed potatoes were bland. That was our last meal here.

We ate dinner here for the first time here a couple of months ago and arrived starving, so the food should have tasted really good based on the hungry factor, right? Negative.

Our server Brittani was no help in adding any stars to this rating, she even brought out the tab midway through my dinner and came back a minute later to try to collect it. Call us old-fashioned, but we typically don't pay until we're finished eating...!!!

The mixed green salad was delicious for what it is (note: they didn't bring out any bread, so either they don't offer it or they forgot.) The veggies were also delicious and the fries were pretty awesome, too. Unfortunately, we were paying $20 for a New York Steak and $17 for Baby Back Ribs and neither one of them were very good.

DH ordered the steak "medium" and they brought it out cold the first time, then well-done and warm the second time. He told the server it was well-done and he had asked for it to be medium and all she said was, "Oh, sorry" and walked away. Out of my half-rack, there were only two ribs that were decent; the others were dry and tough. Good thing I asked for fries because that was mostly my dinner. Poor DH, he ordered mashed potatoes and they were pretty bland.

If it wasn't for the fact that we used a Restaurantdotcom $25 gift certificate that we bought for $2, I seriously would have had diner's remorse...I would have much rather spent the money just about anywhere else. But since our total only came to $20.16 (including the 18% gratuity they tack on as a part of the gift certificate terms) I guess I'm not complaining...so DH just ate his well-done New York Steak and I settled for a couple of good ribs and we'll call it our last meal there.

Pros: Ummm...lots of TV's...?

Cons: New York Steak, Baby Back Ribs

My fiance and I love this little Pub! They have great food.... I mean delicious! We always get the french dip sandwich (with cheese and au jus) and the hot pastrami sandwich. This restaurant is a seat yourself kind of place, with a bunch of TV's with all the games on, indoor and outdoor seating. Every time we have gone, our service has been great. Food come out hot and promptly! Great little place for a sandwich or burger!
