My husband and I had dinner at Roc's Firehouse Grille and it exceeded our expectations! He ordered the pork chops and said they were were incredible! The mixed vegetables and potatoes were also very good. There was a mushroom gravy and all the portions were suitable for a hungry fireman! I chose the special: linguine with shrimp and clams, as...

Fun place in a large set of stores and shops just Of Cook and I-10. Very relaxed, casual setting, large loud bar with music on the sound system and Tv's over the bar. Went without a reservation as it was after the main lunch rush. They not only have the usual bar food selections of burgers, sandwiches, etc., but also... More

I was looking for a pub with good food to watch some college basketball and found ROC's. I sat at the bar and didn't know what to order. I asked the bartender for a recommendation and she picked a few items but as soon as her finger went to the grilled cheese with Brie, prosciutto, and strawberry-jalapeno jam that was... More

Wonderful atmosphere. Casual and fun. Great food. We did salads but the menu is extensive. Kids menu is a steal! We'd recommend it to anyone looking for something reasonable. Also excellent bar menu :)

It's a bit out of the way, in terms of the usual Palm Springs-area centres, but it's worth the trip. The burgers were excellent, and there was good variety on the wine and beer list. Friendly service, and it wasn't crowded on a rainy night when many other places that rely on patios had to bring patrons indoors.

Dinner with friends 2/24/17. Fast service, good prices, comfortable place. Meatloaf was awesome, with an excellent sauce to rival Daily Grill's. Definitely will come back.

As a party of 8 on a Saturday night at 6:00, we walked in expecting to have a long wait. With 3 10-year-olds, that would be iffy. However, the staff put two tables together and served us right away. The space is small but did not feel crowded. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. The Ceaser... More

Looking for a happy hour place for an inexpensive supper and we tried ROC's. We arrived about 5:30 and there was lots of room to sit. Our waiter was friendly and got our drink orders and refills before the happy hour discounts shut down at 6:00. I had a blue cheese burger that I found rather tasty. My wife had... More

Came here for an early dinner after the Christmas holidays and enjoyed everything. Everyone at our table loved the dish they ordered, which doesn't always happen. Not too crowded, good service, and best of all, background music not too loud. Will definitely return.

In a sea of fast food restaurants, this is a welcome oasis!!! It is casual, interesting/historical (firehouse memorabilia) all-American, friendly, attentive AND most of all...great food! I had the salmon blackened tacos and my spouse had the salmon filet. Moderately priced. Several TVs with different sports. Unique dishes on the menu, it was hard to choose. It is great for... More
