I used to love this place...but something changed with the move to the south hill. Not only the atmosphere...but the food has also gone south. The fish tacos were terrible (why smother the few pieces of cod in sweet chili sauce?) and the magherita pizza was bland and flavorless. The ONLY saving grace was the server...who was apologetic about the... More

The fish tacos looked better than pulled pork, bit I like the shredded pork better than chucks. The flavor of the pork was good and so were the fries. Missed seeing the Thai calazone of the menu. It and the Thai pizza used to be my favorite years ago

I asked a friend who lives in Spokane for restaurant recommendations for a family rendezvous -- reasonably priced and in close proximity to where our guests live on South Hill -- and then looked up the menus of each, with the goal of finding a place with a varied-enough menu so that everyone could find something they liked. The ages... More

We met family here for Sunday breakfast. Perfect for boys that like football, as TVs are abundant and all the games are on. We had 3 hungry football watching boys in our group. All 3 were happier with the football than the food. We ordered a scramble, a couple omelettes, French toast platter, and a regular breakfast. No one at... More

First of all let me apologize for just now seeing this. I'm sorry you were disappointed with our breakfast. I'm not sure what happened at your table. but clearly our standards weren't met. The reviews have been so positive especially regarding the hash browns. I hope you'll give us another chance to down the road. Thanks for taking the time... More

They have just moved to the South Hill area of Spokane. The new address is 2911 E 57th ( %7th & Regal). I have been a fan of Rock City Grill through their 3 locations. This one is the best with free ample parking. Same great menu (pizzas, pasta etc. ) They need to iron out some service issues but... More

We had lunch for 4, and the choice of beers on tap is good, the burgers are big & juicy ( the Patty Melt was excellent - and a big serving!), the Italian Fries are tasty, and the Sweet Potato Fries are excellent. The fish taco/chili combo was not very good. The Grilled Chicken Caesar Panino is excellent. Service was... More

Thank you for your review. We are changing the fish taco/chili dish. The red bean chili is being changed to a white bean chili that is far superior. We look forward to having you back in. Jim More

This is my second time coming here and the service is the best part about this place. Both of our hamburgers were way overdone but they were extremely busy and we already waited a good amount of time for our food so we did not send it back. I recommend ditching the preppy small portions. Ditch the french fry holder... More

Thanks so much for your comments. I sat down with the kitchen crew and read your review. Most of our customers don't want to see any pink in their burger paddy. Unfortunately on this occasion they over cooked until it was dried out. We are so sorry that this happened. We coached the crew on a new procedure. More

We were in the mall looking at the Christmas trees and decided to try this establishment. I should have figured out that this was not an exceptional place when I saw open tables at 6pm on a Friday night. We asked to be seated and told we would have to wait for 20-30min (even though there were numerous open tables).... More

I apologize for just now responding. We are one of the few restaurants that take reservations. I went back to the books for that evening and saw that we had three large parties coming in between 6 - 7. We were very busy that night, but not until 6:30 because of Christmas Tree Elegance.

Rock City Grill is Spokane's most creative restaurant featuring a unique menu of non-traditional Italian food mixed in with American favorites. With a wood-fired oven, gourmet ingredients we create mouthwatering dishes like our Thai Pizza, Tuxedo pasta, Italian nachos, and of course, our famous Thai Peanut Sauce (that you can also buy in a bottle to take home). We boast a truly unique sixty item menu. With great starters, salads, pastas, pizzas, burgers, paninos, specialty entrees, and 28 gluten free options, there is definitely something for everyone at Rock City Grill. We are home to the Blue Martini Bar featuring over 60 wines, ice cold martinis, great Northwest Micro Brews, and more. We have moved to our third and final location in the past 24 years. We are on the corner of 57th and Regal. After all these years downtown we finally have our own parking lot. Our new spot is fun, energetic with the same great menu. We are a neighbor hood restaurant with 13 TVs to watch your favorite sports. We have a great patio which is perfect for date night, a Saturday afternoon with friends, or just a beautiful evening any day of the week. We have weekly lunch specials, Happy Hour from 3-6PM Monday through Friday (and all day on Sunday!), Martini Mondays, Thai Tuesdays, Wine Wednesdays, and more. We now serve breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 8:00 a.m. We guarantee our products and especially our service. Our friendly and welcoming staff is here to make sure you have a wonderful experience with us. We will not disappoint. So come out and try us, we're a seriously fun American - Italian Grill with an attitude!
