    Great drink specials. Think it was makers mark for $5. Any ways, it got my cousin saucy. Great live music. Band was playing songs from music videos on the tv from the eighties. I love them. Thank you

    Great brunch. Live music great vibe. Breakfast burrito is excellent. So is the Lemon Ricotta pancakes They use old album covers to present the menu in.

    The pan-roasted salmon was arguably one of the best entrées on the menu, finished with red quinoa tabbouleh, baby kale and lentil-garlic puree. Read more

    It's Halloween, and Buffalo wings decided to dress up as mac and cheese. That's the best way to describe this spicy, creamy, blue cheese-y pasta at Rockit. Read more

    Try the cinnamon raisin grilled cheese with melted brie and apples. Comes with a side of greens topped with a delicious balsamic hazelnut dressing. The Bloody Mary bar was very impressive as well.

    Looking for a great $100 (for 2) burger experience this is the place! Okay I had the lobster burger but still a little heavy on the wallet for the experience and taste. Good, absolutely. 4 $30 OK

    Craft your own creation with Rockit Bar & Grill River North’s Bloody Mary Bar where you can get wild with 15 garnishes - because while it takes two to make a thing go right, 15 can’t make it go wrong.

    Definitely amazing burgers but if you're there for apps, the maple bourbon wings and the steak pockets are so bad and so gooood!

    You would think Jeremy Piven's bar would be douchey just because assholes would pretend to be Ari Gold. Well it's actually a pretty badass place. Good drinks. Killer music mix and good lookin people.

    The cheese fries with brie and mushrooms are incredible!!! Loved their sweet potato fries. I wasn't so fond of their chickpea burger, though.

    Wedge salad & rocket pockets! Rocket Pockets: take a cheese stake, put it in an egg roll wrapper and deep fry! Not at all heart healthy but you have to try them.

    Quite possibly the best damn Bloody Mary bar on the weekend that ever existed! The acoustic one man band also sets the mood for a nice/relaxing setting! Love this place.

    Whatever dessert you choose, ask for whip cream. Yummiest whip cream on earth. Wish they sold it in bowls. I'd always order it.

    Stick with lunch over brunch food. Can't go wrong with a burger and fries. Great spot to watch Michigan games upstairs.

    On Sat/Sun at Brunch there's a $5 "build your own gourmet Bloody Mary bar." You can bring your plate when you go up to the Bloody Mary bar for things like shrimp and peppers you may want on the side.

    Upstairs bar is more active and lively. You can still get the great burgers and beer plus it is easier to get a seat when crowded.

    Red bean turkey chili is chunky with tomato, upfront with heat and more than filling. Sure, truffle fries are trendy, but if you order them anywhere, do it here. Read more
