Rocket to Venus is a good place to come for a drink with food. The menu has some pretty diverse options -- it goes way beyond burgers to include some international foods and has options for vegetarians, plus excellent pies for dessert. Prices are low, portions are substantial, the food is pretty good, and service is friendly. The place is... More

Fried dill pickles were a hit. Mussels were about perfect, and both the wine-and-garlic and the green curry versions were worth going out of one's way, and more than worth going back for seconds. Forest mushroom risotto was quite rich but still delicious. Beer selection left nothing to be desired. Service was personable and attentive.

Rocket to Venus. I walked in from the cold December night to find a warm place full of noise and people. Right from the start, Rocket to Venus was full of energy and life. I was hungry and had great hopes. As is my custom, I shall provide a summary, bullet list of pros & cons and then a more... More

Brunch was memorable. The place is kitschy but friendly and attracts locals and others for the excellent food and well priced quality drinks. You aren't rushed and service is pleasant. The grilled cheese with tomato bisque was a unique take on the classic. The Caesar salad should not be missed. And the burger aficionado was most pleased with the blue... More

First--the food was very good and so was the service. The mushrooms and grits (or was it called polenta--I can't remember) was delicious.

The food here might surprise you, though you may not want to stay long enough to try it. Rocket to Venus is a bit of a dive, with a worn floor and not terribly interesting decor: even the windows, made up of glass blocks and meant to evoke the feeling of being in a rocket, were a bit distracting; glare...

If you don't know this already, I am super glad to share with you that Rockets has a burger night special on Mondays. They do a 1/2lb Angus Burger (or Black Bean Burger if you prefer) w/ fries for only $5. If you can combine that with their happy hour 3 pony beers for $4, you can get a meal... More

We used to regularly go there for dinner and always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. During our last visit three months ago, we had the worst food and may not be back for a long time.

We went back to an old favorite that has changed but not sure if for better or worse. Always like the atmosphere which is like a 1950's take on a spaceship interior. I got pork loin which was tender but not much on flavor even with their sauce. The French dip was average at best but the table favorite was... More
