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

The decor on the inside is great. Artwork on the walls looks like a lot of local talent (and it IS talent). The food was prepared very well. There's also a large selection of drinks with which to imbibe. Love it!

Try the macaroni and cheese or the friend pickles, the best! This is a quirky bar/restaurant that's a fun place to go for a drink and way above average bar food. It's my #1 place to go with friends when I'm back in town and the place I miss most now that I moved out of Baltimore.

Everything was terrible. To start, my fiancée ended up finding a sizable rock in her shrimp and grits, which she bit down on, causing some extreme discomfort. When told about the rock, the waitress at least had the grace to offer a free glass of wine. The bao buns were pathetic, luke warm, and worst of all - flavorless. They... More
