this is one of those places you just can't help but go back to over and over . The food is amazing lots of beer to be had and often you get to listen to live music .. whether you are out on the patio or sitting inside this Irish pub will leave you feeling like you have come home

We have found our local!!! This is the perfect neighbourhood pub. The food is amazing, everything is made from scratch including the hot sauce. It's probably the best pub food I have ever had. And I have travelled all over the world, including the UK (not to say that they are the ultimate litmus test for culinary skill) but I... More

Went here on the recommendation of someone. The place is nicely decorated and clean. The wait staff are friendly and reasonably attentive. We must have gone at the wrong time as we were the only people in the place - sure was quiet. Ordered the hamburger and fries. The fries were fresh and nicely done, the burger was another story....

This is no plastic pub and that's a good thing. Kate runs the place - it's welcoming with friendly staff and offbeat folksy music (usually locals having a decent jam session) We live nearby and happy we have a fun pub with good Irish food - no rough types tolerated - just characters and good vibes

A group of 5 of us went in to Rebel's Rock Irish Pub for dinner yesterday. We all agreed we would rate it 5 out of 5! We had drinks and food. There was Irish music playing on the speakers to add to the atmosphere since it was before any band was due to come in. The Guinness and Harp... More

Went to this pub yesterday after a football event my son was in at McMaster with 6 other family members 16 yes to 50. Menu is not only unique it is inexpensive. Waitress, food, cost all 😆 wonderful. Definetly a pub we would all return to when we visit Hamilton.

I alone arrived early and asked for a pint of stout and a menu at the bar. Staff was friendly and told me the specials right away. I had a nice thick Irish stew and a proud pour pint. my friends just had brews when they arrived. All had a good time.

We are semi regular guests at The Rock, and enjoy the laid back, irish atmosphere. Kate's magic in the kitchen is beyond compare, and I am willing to pay for a top quality pint. I always refer The Rock to my friends and family. Love it.

We were told about it by another Irish Pub owner and thought we would try it out. A place with a lot of Irish history on the wall. Good friendly staff and the food was good. Would I return...yes and that says it all. Nice place to drop in for a drink and lunch.

Tried to get a pitcher of draft and the bar tender said "It's not that kind of place" Obviously not impressed by our appearance or something. I didn't like the rather snobby attitude towards us. Won't go back there again. High prices for drinks are a turn off too. Guess they are trying to keep put riff raff like us.
