We met the same thing about discrimination as the guys said in their reviews. That day, we followed the lines to get in this bar. But the guard used the bans to stop us once we got the first row. Then, he started to let other people in , most of whom are black and Caucasian. When the girls behind us asked them the reason why he didn't let us in, he said that people have reservation and the bar was too crowded. So we, six Asians, standed outside in the lines for more than half an hour until we lost patience. After we left, they started to let the white girls behind us in. Why? We have never expected that we would be treated like this and we Asians are always modest so that we never conceit that we are prior to other people. But we have to emphasize that we are not inferior to any other race or kind. Every human on this earth should be treated equally. I hate this bar, which was the only despicable place when I traveled in Chicago

Service was top of the line even though I was only a party of one. As in new drink before the old one was gone and I didn't even have to ask for it. Ended up having the rockit burger with truffle fries and wow! The creamy brie cheese, crispy onion strings and an actual patty awesome! I look forward to my next visit!

If you are looking for your typical American fare River North hang out, then you will enjoy this restaurant. If you do not prefer that scene, I suggest visiting for brunch rather than for dinner. If you do visit for brunch, make sure you get their bloody mary. For $5 you get to visit the most decadent bloody mary bar in the city. Shrimp, multiple cheeses, a variety of meats, endless pickled vegetables, pretzels, the list goes on and on. They have it all. The food is good and they have a great variety of drinks. The upstairs can get pretty rowdy the later it gets so do not expect an intimate date environment if you are visiting during the evening.

This is quite a spacious place they have here. A lot of my friends wanted to go out for the night last Friday and we didn't want to be in the usual place. We ended up in here, and everything was what we expected it could be. Good music and good company, that was a good night.

It's been a while since I've seen frank racism. My friends and I had left the club and were hanging outside waiting for a cab. There were three Asians waiting in line, and strangely, the bouncers refused to let them in, citing that the club was "too packed". Appallingly, we sat and watched while they allowed every other white/Caucasian individual enter the bar (mind you, the club was anything but "packed", as was about at half capacity). When one of them asked why they were being treated so rudely, the bouncer kept stating "it's extremely busy upstairs, its gonna take a few minutes." They waited for 20 minutes, watching as group after group entered the bar despite the apparent "capacity limit" (we decided to forgo the cab at this point, pretending to be journalists witnessing bigotry first hand). The Asian group finally decided to leave after losing their patience, and as soon as they left, the bouncers laughed and made some jeering remarks. If you have issues with bigotry and racism, don't come to this bar. What they did last night is exactly what the world doesn't need. Racism is intolerable and unwelcome in Chicago.

Fun place to go to for food and drinks with friends in River North. This casual setting is not pretentious. Burgers and fries are excellent. The menu constantly changes so be sure to come frequently.

Rockit is known for its Kobe Burgers.The upstairs bar has plenty of great seating. Great Service . I attended a special event here. I met the owner Billy Dec and took a selfie with him. He is known for throwing great parties and does not disappoint. I love the music his D.J. plays, it makes me want to dance all night.

I came for one thing. One single glorious thing. I was sorely disappointed to find out they didn't have it. I don't know why they wouldn't have it. I wanted the burger served with two fried mac and cheese patties as buns. Here I was ready to forgo all forms of decency as far as caloric intake goes and the one thing I really wanted was only being served at another location. I also found it very odd, that I had to have my ID checked by a bouncer at the door only to have it checked again when I ordered a drink at the table. Other than that minor annoyance I have to say the food was pretty good. I tried the locavore burger and it wasn't like an eyeopening burger changing moment. It was actually a touch on the bland side. Nothing too much to complain about though admittedly I have a pretty high salt threshold. The fries also ranked there as just ok. On the upside it does have good vegetarian options. I'd say this would be a good option if you're stuck in that Hubbard area.
