I was in the area looking for breakfast. I really needed to trust the good reviews when walking up to the place because it seemed a little quiet and like the place could have been closed years ago. The food was great. Fun people hanging out and working there. I even caught an episode of wheel of fortune.
Great food for the price. Thick cut bacon and delicious French toast. Defiantly a local restaurant.
This place is very low key. We went for breakfast this morning to try it out based on the recommendations of yelp. We were not sure where the restaurant was because it does not say Bridge Street Cafe outside. It is the Masonic lodge and you enter street level. Breakfast was wonderful and service was great, good food and good service and you got a hero! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!!
My family occasionally likes to grab a nice chicken dinner with potato wedges, potato salad and creamy mac and cheese as the sides. Tastes great! I am glad that we gave it a try. Rosewood is seriously under-rated. Give it a try, you won't regret it!
This is our go-to living in Rockford with not a whole lot of other great dining options in the vicinity and we love the place. We easily give them our money in exchange for tasty treats once or twice a month. We've dined in, but primarily we order to go. My ONE complaint about the place is that it's a little expensive, but honestly the quality is worth it. They boast a very diverse menu, recently adding burgers that are pretty decent, but in my opinion the chicken is the cream of the meat crop at Rosewood. Their meats are naturally raised, no hormones and whatnot and they have several gluten-free items for those of you who think you're celiac (spoiler alert - you almost certainly aren't). Oh hey - try the mac and cheese! Yeah, that's my fave. When I'm feeling particularly gluttonous, I order a big container of it and don't share with my family. THAT'S MINE GET AWAY FROM IT, that's what I tell them. I tell them I won't love them anymore if they take any of my Rosewood mac and cheese. Yes, it's that good. The place is local and it feels like it. At any given time you'll see a familiar face in there. They serve a few local craft beers (think Surly, Fulton, etc). And they have a small market where you can buy anything from eggs to spices like tarragon, all locally procured. We need more people to check this place out, seriously. Take my recommendation and get in there! Then go again! Then call me and we'll go together!
Fantastic food & great family atmosphere. This is the kind of place that should be featured in a food magazine! The hot beef sandwich is amazing... And the burgers. And the chicken...
