There is no shortage of Melbourne restaurant/bars with pared-back interiors, wooden surfaces, exposed brick and displayed nostalgia, particularly those serving gourmet burgers, pickled vegetables and deep-fried stuff. Thankfully, Rockwell and Sons delivers a top-shelf variation on the 'dude food' phenom with carefully created and delicious dishes. Buttermilk fried chicken burger, a rib-wich, deep fried broccoli, slaw and handcut fries were... More

Superb food. Simple but execution is flawless. Burger and rib sandwich both delicious. Duck croquettes amazing, lamb starter also nice, soft melts in your mouth, full flavoured.

While the food was good, a particular staff member was very rude when requested to split the bill for tax purposes. Should we have known this is the case we would have requested the bill to be split prior to ordering.

My brother chose this place as he wanted a burger... me on the other hand, am a pescatarian and not a burger person. Anyway, I agreed and I have to say the Black Bean Burger was impressive. It did not look that big but was very filling. Tasted very nutty and I liked it. My brother had the signature Double... More

If you like burgers (and a good IPA to go with it), Rockwell & Sons is your best choice. Chow down on the Smash Burger (get bacon). One of the best burgers I've ever had.

Having dined here years ago and LOVED it, I was excited about returning this evening. My boyfriend ordered a burger and when the waiter was bringing it to our table the top of the burger fell into his lap sending sauce and bread all over his and my clothes and hands. The waiter mumbled an apology and ran off to... More

We decided last minute to go for a 'legendary' burger, as we had heard so much positivity with regard to this food item... and my word was it delightful. The service is very chilled, the space is very rustic and the menu simple... but awesome none the less. We had the duck croquettes to start and my word... food orgasm... More

What a greay food experience. There were enough of us to try most things offered as entrees and all of them were sensational. The smash burger as a main is one of the best burgers I have ever had. Great pricing and easy friendly service. Very impressed.

Hands down the best burger (double patty smash) and fried chicken going round. The Wednesday fried chicken (pre order) is a ritual and the sides are interesting but really work well. If you're a lover of big flavours you must try this place.
