MY FAVORITE PLACE IN YBOR.. – THERE AREN'T MANY PLACES THAT I CAN GO TO AND SPEND THE WHOLE DAY AT AND FEEL WELCOMED. ROCK N SPORTS IS ONE OF THEM. I HAVE BEEN THERE A FEW TIMES AND EVERYTIME I GO, I AM THERE FOR A WHILE. THE FOOD IS FAST AND GOOD AND THE SERVERS ARE GREAT. NOT TO MENTION THAT THEY ARE HOT!!! THEY HAVE TONS OF TV'S EVERYWHERE AND PLAY ALL THE GAMES. THEY HAVE A HUGE BAR WHICH I LOVE! THIS PLACE IS GREAT FOR A BIG GROUP OF FRIENDS, YOUR SMALL FAMILY OR JUST A TABLE FOR ONE! I CANT WAIT FOR SUPERBOWL....ITS LIKE ONE BIG PARTY THERE!
Great Service, Great Food... – ok, so as soon as i walked in, i was immediately greeted with a huge smile. the restuarant is pretty spacious and you have the choice of sitting outside or in. either way...you get to watch the games that are on. the servers there were very polite yet up beat and spunky...had great conversation skills and made you feel like you were right at home. the food was DELICIOUS!!! the place was pretty packed but we didnt have to wait long to be seated...which was good bc i didnt want to miss too much of the game so i was pretty happy about that. we didnt have to wait long for our food and it was hot and fresh! the server was very attentive and always made sure were doing good. the place itself has a very welcoming atmosphere, its clean so i dont know what these reviews about it being dirty are about...but i would definately tell my family and friends to go there...i know that i have adopted that place as my new hangout. good service, good food...AND SPORTS!!!! what else can you ask for?
BEST RIBS IN TOWN!!!! GREAT PLACE TO HANG OUT AND WATCH A GAME! – IF YOU'RE A FAN OF GREAT FOOD, LOTS OF SPORTS AND A PLACE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR AT HOME THEN, THIS IS THE PLACE YOU SHOULD BE. I RECOMMEND THE TRIPLEHEADER ITS A 1/2 SLAB OF JUICY RIBS, YUMMY WINGS AND LOADED FRENCH FRIES I FINISHED WITH A PIECE OF BLUBERRY FRIED ICE CREAM. WHICH WAS HEAVEN.
I WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK ON A REGULAR BASIS.
regular patron – Can't believe the negative reviews. I eat there all the time and the food and service is excellent.
Sounds like someone is out to get them!!
What's to like? – Having not been impressed with visits to their old location it was a while before I dared venture into the new supposedly improved Rock & Sports. From what I remembered the service had been slow and disrespectful, the prices were higher than most in Ybor City, and the fun and energized atmosphere you expect from a sports bar was noticably lacking.
Before walking in I already had my doubts because the decorations were neither "rock" nor "sports". At least the old spot had memorabilia to look at while you waited for service- and as before-the wait was long.
Although it wasn't busy, the staff was nowhere to be found.When we finally located a server it was quite a wait until we actually got our food. The waitress never checked on us, and had to be flagged down to even bring us a bill.All would not have been a loss if the food had been good, but alas...cold and soggy.
With all the competition in the area you would think they'd try harder. I would dedfinitely recommend Green Iguana, or Streetcar Charlies
HORRIBLE – This is honestly the worst restaurant that i have ever eaten at. The service was terrible, and i don't think that the servers have any experience or training. the food looked like it was thrown together in a matter of seconds, yet it took almost and hour to get an entree out to the table. There were insects everywhere and the tables were dirty and had empty plates and cups all over them. Everyone that was working was rude including the blonde woman who owns the place.
SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.
these people don't deserve to have your support and i can imagine that this place wont be around for very long.
Yuck! – My wife and I have dined here on several occasions, with minor complaints everytime.... food undercooked, slow service, rude employees.... but the last time, creepy crawlies!! We saw several of them wandering around the dining room floor in the corner nearest the kitchen. We stood up and left right away and will not return. We tried to contact the owner but were repeatedly told she was "too busy" to talk to us. We have informed all of our friends and family NOT to return there.
Gave it three tries.... each worse than the pervious – Well, the idea of having a sports bar within walking distance is nice. And their location is great... but other than that, its a disaster of a bar and restaurant. First off, the place is dirty. The floors look like they werent cleaned for weeks, the bathrooms filthy. The staff is a mesh of youngsters without conversation skills and are dressed like the homeless that wander YBOR. The food, average. And the management is laughable. The lady in charge that I spoke with was as unprofessional as anyone I have ever met. The server, had the personality of a shoe horn. My advice, go elsewhere. I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like, after seeing the dining room.
