Good eats and good times are two things that Rock House, the newest restaurant in Searcy, is serving up. When looking for a nice, inexpensive and fun place to eat, I’d recommend this place.
This restaurant is not affiliated with The Rock House ministry at College Church of Christ. Although it is in the same place where Doc’s Grill was previously located, Rock House is not affiliated with it either.
I pulled into the parking lot and it was completely packed, which to me is always a good sign, but where was I going to park?
Just as I was about to pull out of the parking lot I saw a sign for “Rock House overflow parking” with an arrow to direct cars across the street for additional parking.
As I entered the restaurant three young ladies who were wearing Rock House T-shirts and the biggest smiles ever, immediately greeted me. I was seated in a booth within a matter of minutes. I noticed how nicely lit and inviting the restaurant seemed to be. The smell of good food was in the air and there was a nice mix of “Harding appropriate” rock ‘n’ roll music playing at what I thought to be a decent level. Not obnoxiously loud, I could still hear my stomach growl, and not too low.
As I looked over the menu I recognized a dish or two from Doc’s Grill and upon inquiring about them I was told by the wait staff that the owners of Rock House purchased the recipes and the rights to them. If you’re indecisive like me you should probably have in mind what you have a taste for because this menu is full of good options. Between the names, descriptions and pictures of the dishes, I had a hard time deciding on what to order.
They offer lots of traditional American favorites ranging from burgers, soups and salads, tacos, flatbreads, sandwiches, pasta, steaks, seafood and so much more.
The dessert menu is just as incredible, and there is a menu for kids. The lunch menu is also great because it features an express option for those who may be in a hurry. Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. guests can “rock in and roll out” with a customizable meal.
I did not have to wait long for my meal, which is a plus. I love food but can be a picky eater, but I was extremely pleased with my order.
I ordered a burger and the chicken club tacos. My burger was perfectly cooked just the way I wanted, no pink, and it was still juicy. The tacos were absolutely amazing.
I also had the chocolate tower cake, which can feed about three or four people.
By the end of the night my taste buds were on cloud nine and I found myself singing, “heaven came down and glory filled my soul.”
Rock House is my new favorite restaurant because it brings a big city ambience to small town Searcy.
Not to mention they give a free appetizer to any guest who takes a selfie in front of the “rock wall,” posts it to his or her social media site and shows a server. If you want to eat like a rock star, go to Rock House.
Rock House is located at 1301 West Beebe Capps Expressway.
