American | Rockford, Rockford

We had a 7:30 res but arrived early, not a problem, they seated us immediately in a very nice booth. The wedge salads we ordered were terrific, although a little heavy on the red onions. We just pushed them aside. Locally GC is highly rated for their chix wings. We placed an order for each type, boneless and bone-in. The supply was adequate, but we found both types to be of average taste, although the sauce was nice and fiery. Our waitress was terrific, very informative and not over attentive. Nothing in our experience will prevent us from coming back. More
