Rockwell's is a great place to host a fundraiser. They will donate back a percentage to the total spent to your organization. We went to support pediatric cancer and they raised a lot of money for a very good cause. They have very good appetizers in the bar area and the restaurant has very good food if you choose to...

Admittedly, we were not an easy table to deal with. We had 2 seniors with walkers & an unhappy preteen with us. But we could not have been treated kinder than we were. Our server (Kayla) patiently changed our table for us & got a cushion for one of the mom's backs against the hard chairs. We had a variety... More

Breakfast out worth hubby. Omlete was great, the cajun potatoes are very tasty! Hubby had the biscuits and gravy, buscuits were hard. Service was great, we'll go back.

This was my second time eating here and the atmosphere and food was great. I really enjoy the "past history" decor of the OC and Villa Park. Like the rugged wood tables and orange/lemon boxes above. My wife wanted a "healthy" meal and I wanted a good sandwich and we both got exactly what we wanted and it was delicious.... More

Cafe is OK but the bar is a place to see. Great place to stop and have a drink and watch some kind of sports game on one of their big screens TV's. Fun setting areas, too. One of the exterior wall will open up to the patio area. Patio seating, too. Great for outside dining on a warm night.... More

Not much to choose from here in the way of wine and food. Wine was pricey for what they offer and the food was greasy.

Rockwell's is known for its incredible bakery. The best cakes! It's also a cafe, restaurant and bar with casual Old West ambiance & small enosed patio. Breakfast available all day. I had an excellent breakfast sandwich & will go back for dinner. Unfortunately our server wasn't up to par, but that won't discourage me from a re-try.

Rockwell's is a really cool place to catch up with friends & enjoy a meal & some delectable sweets! Service is always welcoming & friendly. Plus they don't rush you. Today we had breakfast/brunch & a fabulous piece of German Chocolate Cake to celebrate a birthday. I enjoyed my spinach, mushroom & harvati cheese omelette - which was loaded in... More

Nicely remodeled and great place to reunite with friends for a good breakfast or lunch. Seating allows for conversation, whereas some restaurants can be too loud. Breakfast burrito was substantial and filling with attentive waitresses who kept our coffee cups full and welcomed our party of five-50 year plus high school graduates. An added treat is the bakery with delicious... More

The food is okay, on a par with a Mimi's Cafe...although it's clear they aspire to something more. What I HIGHLY recommend is ordering a cake from them for a special occasion. Ordered a graduation cake in their signature chocolate-fudge, and was NOT disappointed: dense, dark chocolate cake, fudge filling, chocolate ganache frosting, and chocolate-dipped strawberries interspersed with chocolate curls!...
