I stopped by in the afternoon for a late lunch and was surprised by the range of menu options available. I decided to go with the baked mac n' cheese with chicken and chose the soup of the day (cream of mushroom). The soup blew me away - incredible flavorful and chocked full of mushrooms. I was really glad I... More

Food was not cooked well at all and staff would not take it back to make it different. They were very rude.

We thought we would give Onyx a try because we heard the food was good. My husband ordered the Mac and cheese. The top was ritz crackers. Pretty expensive at $12.00. I ordered the fajitas. They were ok. There was about a tablespoon of lettuce and a tablespoon of tomatoes. This also was $12.00. Very over priced. Very disappointed. Won't... More

Stopped in for dinner tonight. My DH and I had draft beer from the wide selection and my son has a kiddie cocktail. For dinner I had the seared blackened ahai tuna salad, DH had the build your own chicken sandwich, and son had the kids cheeseburger. Food arrived quickly and tasted good. Everybody cleaned their plates. Decided to try... More

Love the food and drinks here. Wait staff is friendly. Tends to be a younger bar crowd at night And a mixed crowd for lunch. Friday fish fry is delicious.

Stopped in with my father during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Great atmosphere but the food was over priced. My father ordered a burger which was alright and I ordered a panini which came out very greasy, but still yummy. The only issue is I believe they're over priced for what you get.

Food very good. Management always walked around making sure everyone is happy. We had a new waitress but she worked thru it. We will be back!

I will start by saying that the whole Rockford area has very little to offer dining wise. For the most part, you might just as we'll hit subway or McDonald's rather than spending more money at a sit down restaurant. Having said that, the wife and I went here for the first time last night for some drinks and dinner.... More

This is an absolute "go to" place when my husband and I want to relax and get a nice bite to eat and a cocktail! We have had many of the items on the menu, and have never been disappointed. The garlic and olive oil marinated ribeye was really tasty and the veggies were a perfect balance to keep the... More

I went there last night with a friend. The service and food was wonderful. I got the Chicken Fettucine Alfredo while my friend ordered the pizza. It was deliscious and I thought the prices were reasonable. I would recommend this place and will be going back again. Again, the service was great even while the place was packed.
