Roc’s Blackfront Tavern & Grill

The Blackfront began life as one of the most patronized illegal gambling houses in downstate Illinois. Now, as Roc’s Blackfront Tavern & Grill, you can capture the spirit of times gone by as you enjoy some of the best food in town, meet friends for a drink or two, or try our (legal) video gaming!
