We went out with a larger group for my friend's birthday. Right from the start it was a bad experience. They didn't seem enthusiastic to have us as customers, especially a group of us. It took them at least 20 minutes just to get a drink order in. Shortly after they took our food order. It took them over 45... More

Not that busy for a Friday night. Wanted a booth which were available but hostess would not seat us in one because we only had 4 however the other booths also had parties of 4. Lighting was horrible could not see the menu, had to use my phone backlight to read it. It was so cold in the restaurant I... More

This is a non-chain, one-off place, and it'll never run like a huge, nationally franchised restaurant. So please, stop wishing it were that. Once in a while, yeah, those kinds of places are helpful, especially with fussy people that require a deep menu, or larger groups during busy times. And yeah, a local place like Rock River can get a... More

Went on a Sunday night, only a few other patrons in the restaurant yet we waited a bit to be waited on. First time visit and always look for independantly owned restaurants vs chain. The waitress did not seem to be very familiar with the menu options or their capabilities but perhaps she was new. I did request a special... More

We visited Rock River Pizza tonight and had the worst dining experience I can recall in years. The restaurant is in need of maintenance with several large areas of the ceiling are peeling badly. Service has been slow on past visits but nothing like this. It took 30-40 minutes to be seated, even though they had several clean empty tables.... More

Entered the door and stood around for a few minutes, when finally someone whom might have been the bar tender decided to pay attention to us. We were the only people in the place {first bad sign} after given a menu, we waited about 10 minutes for someone to come back and take our order. We then waited at least... More

The place is an old warehouse kind of building--semi-restored, but pretty cool. Pizza was really good, but quite pricey. Service could have been better. We had a long wait. Worth it? Maybe.

This is a pretty nice place. My wife was interested in pizza cooked in their fashion so we went. It is a cool looking old building, and the only thing is that it is kinda' dark inside. BUT..... the pizza was great!!!! Our group had a couple of different kinds of pizzas as well as one calazone, and some fried... More

The pizza is pretty good but you pay for the extras. Good service and neat place to eat. Pretty close to the main drag of the city so very easy to get to. Come prepared to pay more than a national chain but its worth it.
