Reviews for Irish Rose Saloon

We stumbled upon this absolute gem of an Irish pub after encountering overwhelming lines for riverfront dining. The Irish Rose should have overwhelming lines for its basil house salad dressing--seriously, if they bottled it I'd have bought a case. We had no lines, the scallops and pork chop sandwich were delicious, and the service was fast and incredibly friendly. We felt like family by the time we left and already look forward to our next visit.

Delicious food and drinks! Cute interior and very friendly staff. I had the Cremini mushroom pasta--highly recommend! The vegan chili was super good & the complimentary bread was great, especially after a few beers at the city market. My friend had the lavender and lemon cocktail and it was deliciously sweet and not too "flowery", another must-try!

I absolutely love this place, I found it on Google and we were in Rockford from out of town. I'm so glad we went here. First off the waitstaff was so friendly and welcoming. The food..omg the food was so fresh and tasted amazing. Everything is homemade and you can tell they take great pride in that,, I can't wait to take my dad. The owner came to our table and had a conversation with, what a sweet man. I would give it 10 stars. I also had a Bloody Mary Yum!!!
