A group of about 10 of us went here on a Wednesday. About 3 of us sang karaoke and the rest of us drank. It wasn't crowded at all and those that sang were able to so so as many times at they wanted. We ordered the nachos and a hamburger. The hamburger was handmade and not frozen which was... More

The cheese burgers were good and the fries plentiful. The service was also polite and attentive. There was nothing truly notable, but it was also as advertised.

We flew in from Detroit on Christmas Day and found this local bar. Friendly service, decent menu, good portion sizes and tasty food. Short staff on the holiday-but we had fun with the locals and didn't mind the extra wait time. I recommend to everyone!

My husband and I went for lunch for the first time. My husband likes to play pool and he wanted to check out the tables. It was your typical bar and grill. Staff was friendly and service good. We had a Reuben and fries. It was ok, what I expected. Two pool tables and lots of tv screens to watch... More

I have only gone for lunch, but the salads, the burgers and the sandwiches are great. There's a pool table in the back, but at lunchtime you can sit at the window and people watch. It's quiet and a good place to visit. I bet it's busier at night.

Visiting DC since 2009 twice a year, I have enjoyed many karaoke spots in both Alexandria and DC. I can't help but give Rock It a 5 in the karaoke aspect. This year in particular was surprisingly smooth! Over the years, there have been a variety of DJ's. This year I first met Billy. What a nice guy! He kept... More

The good, bad and ugly. The good; a fun place to hang out with friends to do or watch karaoke or play pool and get a drink. The bad; except for the bartenders the service is spotty. Friendly waitresses but a bit scattered. The ugly; the food. Don't go here to eat. Typical bar food which can also be attributed... More

Food is definitely ok, you get what you pay. No more - no less. Minus point is the service. Some evenings some tables never got cleaned. Others everything was fine and fast... Mixed drinks were ok and not too expensive... If you like karaoke great fun - if not you should really choose something else😉
