Best

Rockit is a great place for a fun meal and drinks with friends and co-workers. The people that work there are really friendly and their food is elevated bar food. Great spot! ...

Worst

The food is not that great. The burgers are too greasy... the staff is a little slow.... you get a better deal at English.

Rockit Bar and Grill 6/28/2010

I went there last Tuesday and found, it is a good place. Service was a bit slow. Overall it is good for occasions. We didn't found anything special but they have a nice collection of drinks which I liked most. more

Fun!!! 3/12/2010

Rockit is a great place for a fun meal and drinks with friends and co-workers. The people that work there are really friendly and their food is elevated bar food. Great spot! Pros: Always Fun Cons: Really crowded more

Great Food! 3/8/2010

This is the place that started it all! Love it! Pros: Great Food Cons: Pretty Crowded more

Seriously the second worst place in the world 9/7/2009

I love to say sixteen plus dollars for a chicken salad with wilting lettuce and overcooked chiken. I could have honestly gotten a better salad from the 7-11 across the street for half the price and then not also have to deal with the "dirty" blonde excuses for waitresses that they apparently employ there. I was also told i couldn't stand where i was standing several times for no apparant reason. Unless your looking for overpriced food and a bunch of weird old guys wearing Ed Hardy everything this isn't the place for you. Pros: the Men's room and the silverware Cons: None, except for everything more

Beware 8/9/2009

I hosted my friend's party there about three months ago and have been disputing the charge with my credit card company. I got the credit card slip and filled out a tip amount and signed it, but did not take my customer copy of the receipt. A few days later I was surprised that the charge on my card was for more than I remebered, so I asked them for a copy of the receipt that I signed. When I received it I was shocked to see that they had filled out the customer receipt for a higher tip amount and forged my signature on it! And that's what they charged my credit card. So for everyone out there, make sure you take your customer receipt with you or else it will be used fraudulently! Businesses are getting desparate with the economy situation. Pros: food Cons: service more

Worst Service EVER 8/1/2009

I will never ever recommend this place to anyone. This joint is a rip-off. They over charge you for drinks and food. Too crowded.... To noisy.... Not worth the cost.... I agree with the other post: The food is very bad here. Pros: Location Cons: Rude Service more

Great food and Great Crowed 1/26/2009

This Burger has a different flavor then any Burger I have tasted. Not only does Rokit have good burgers, everything on they menue is rich in flavor. The atmosphere is great along with the crowd. Pros: Best Burger in town more

Mediocre food...at best, chastising server, good bar staff 12/2/2008

I came here on a Saturday for dinner and was disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. The Rockit Pockits were served with ketchup on a bed of lettuce, which to me was not the best way to present this dish, anything on a bed of lettuce looks like it should be in a styrofoam box. The sweet potato fries were mushy like they were frozen. The burger was good, but that's not hard to screw up. Our server was "there" but we felt like she was chastising us when she would answer our questions. She had tattoos, but we don't remember her name. My wife ordered the tilapia dish and that was the saddest looking fish I have ever seen served. The string beans totaled to about 10 on the plate and the rice was disgusting. The only highlight of the night was sitting at the bar. The bartenders were so nice, heck, even the barback was very attentive. After sitting down and having good conversation with the bar staff, I left a lot happier than I initially was. I will only go back for a happy hour perhaps. Pros: Good burger, good bar staff, good ambience. Cons: Abnoxtious server, bad food and food presentation. more

Best burger in Chicago! 9/24/2008

It was very easy to become a regular at Rockit. In my first trip I was completely sold when I tasted the Rockit Pockets ( a Philly cheese steak twist) and the Rockit burger. the service is amazing, and thus complements the food well. After dinner, for a few more drinks, I highly recommend experiencing the upstairs level. Especially on Tuesdays when they have their "live band karaoke". This is the highlight of my week. A full band plays while you stumble and sing to a classic rock song. Best feeling ever. Pros: The food, the booze and the karaoke more

Fantastic Cheeseburger 8/19/2008

Wow, if you wait an hour for your waitress to show up without flagging someone down that's your own fault. Restaurants, like any business must hire new staff and train them. Sometimes people make mistakes. I went there recently and had a very nice meal. They have a very diverse food and drink menu. The waitress wasn't super attentive but she was easy to flag down when we wanted something - I like it that way. The kobe beef burger was among the best I have had (if not the best). Everything from the bun to the brie cheese was high quality. Our group left happy. Pros: Waitresses, burgers and music Cons: Many posers dine there more

Great Bar/Restaurant, and now they have KARAOKE?!!! 6/23/2008

I love Rockit! My friends and I go out there a lot during the week for food, drinks, and pool. I just found out that they're doing live band Karaoke on Tuesday nights now! I'm so excited! Rockit rocks!! more

Worst Customer Service in Chicago 6/7/2008

I have eaten at Rockit numerous times over the past few years, and while I would never use the words "ambitious" or "intelligent" to describe the Rockit staff, the food and drinks usually found their way to the table eventually. Apparently not anymore. I attempted to get brunch there on June 8, 2008. The initial ordering process went fine, but after an hour of not seeing our food or our waitress, I began to realize that this brunch was not meant to be. The waitress finally stopped back at the table after a little over an hour, and seemed utterly perplexed that we hadn't received our food yet. Willing to give her one more shot, my girlfriend ordered more coffee, and we assumed the waitress would at least put a rush on our order in the kitchen. It was not to be. After another 15-20 minutes, not only did we realize the waitress was never coming back with the second coffee, she clearly had no intention of bringing our food. I found another waitress and explained the situation, at which time our waitress hurried over and assured me that she was going to talk to the manager and get this resolved. After another endless wait we realized that there was no manager involved, nor would there ever be. So we left. Not surprisingly, no one noticed. Maybe David Schwimmer was at the bar or something. Do yourself a favor and give this place a pass. There are bars with better food and atmosphere within the same block, and those bars do not act like you are putting them out by being there. Pros: You'll never actually get your food, so eating here can help you lose weight Cons: The service is rude, incompetant and lazy more

Great Place for Happy Hour 5/26/2008

My friends and I often go to Rockit for drinks after work. Most nights, the bar is crowded but not too crowded. The drinks are priced reasonably. We always have a great time. more

Cool Spot For a Hot Time 5/10/2008

Tasty upscale nouveau burger and fry cuisine (the sweet potato fries are AWESOME) and a top-notch bar with plenty of good beers on tap. We were there on weekdays, but you can tell there are always plenty of well dressed members of the opposite gender available! In addition, we ran into several of the Cubs there after a game (they were very friendly). Overall, a great spot to have a late dinner and some grog. Pros: Good Burgers, Good beers, Nice Ladies Cons: Lots of Dudes trying to scam chicks more

Prepare to Move with the Crowd, Loud, Good Looking People 3/31/2008

This place is usually crowded on the street level, mostly because first-timers are unaware of the upstairs "lounge" area which is more of a true bar. The food is rather disappointing, and don't expect quick service for your drinks/food even if you're at a table. I can't speak on the service downstairs in the legitimate "restaurant area", but a waitress passed my table upstairs about 4 times before we finally got her attention to order our drinks. I was a little underwhelmed. Had the crowd not been as good looking as they were, the night would've been a total bust. Hope your time here was better than mine. Pros: good looking crowd, good music, no cover Cons: truffle french fries were NOTHING special, service takes forever, very crowded more

Offering outstanding casual American cuisine in a mouthwatering menu that includes signature pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and entrees, Rockit is the premier downtown hotspot, with the famous Rockit Burger being named the best in the nation by ?Good Morning America? as well as the restaurant itself being called one of the top concepts in the world by Conde Nast Traveler.

Editorial

  • The Scene
    The Wild West meets the big city in this masculine, multilevel space, which celeb designer Nate Berkus (you've seen him on "Oprah") has duded up with chocolate-leather chairs, rough-hewn wood tables and exposed-brick walls adorned with rustic framed mirrors. A stylish after-work crowd jostles for position at the bar, while model-pretty servers strain to hear dinner orders over the rock soundtrack.

    The Food
    Rockit serves up a comforting menu of updated bar and grill classics, from cobb salad and Black Angus meat loaf to jumbo shrimp cocktail and fish-and-chips. Thick-cut calamari rings with eggplant and tomato dip make for a satisfying starter; crab cake is surprisingly meaty and plump. Burger gourmands can indulge in the Rockit, made with Kobe beef and topped with a slab of seared foie gras and black truffles. Other faves include crispy-tender pork with tangy greens and Alaskan halibut with succotash and lemon butter.
