A sports bar on the Rock River in Beloit, WI, The Rock has a dozen or so TV sets catering to the sports minded. Food portions are large and pretty standard for this type operation.

First. I like the place. Casual, sports bar-ey, good food and lots of beer choices. It was a snowy Friday evening and an expected pre-Christmas crowd failed to materialize. But, it appeared the restaurant didn't accommodate this by sending a portion of their waitstaff home. The result was service staff visiting with each other, ducking into the kitchen for several...

Had lunch here with several swim team families between swim meet sessions. The restaurant was busy, but gave us our own little room, with tons of t.v.s for football watching Extra servers were on hand, all very pleasant. Separate checks were no problem. Food was very good. Beer list excellent.

Stopped by for dinner a couple of weeks ago. I had a steak sandwich. My wife had a salad. We were able to watch a football game while eating dinner. Service was good. The bartender was very helpful with the menu. Look forward to going back there again hopefully in warmer weather to be able to enjoy the outside view.

There is nothing special about the food or service. It does have a great view. It is a good place to meet friends.

This a large bar and grill. The taco salad is really good. Staff is friendly and they had Disney Trivia the last time I was there which was nice.

More than just a sports bar. Great place for a business lunch or relaxing meal. Nice to sit outside by the river.

when we arrived our waitress commented that they were just slammed with people and it was crazy. We were not in a hurry and would have been ok with a little delay but 50 minutes later we had waiting long enough and finally got her attention. Four minutes later both she and the manger said the cooks had lost the... More

Let me first start off by apologizing for the service you received here at the Rock and for the poor quality food as well. We take great pride here in both our food and in giving great quality service. Unfortunately, we dropped the ball in both areas on your visit. Thank you for making us aware of the situation as...
