Even if you're a longtime patron of River Park Square, you'll likely do a double take the next time you pass the Rock City Grill.

The decade-old cafe, home of the famous Thai pizza, just got a $120,000 facelift aimed at updating the interior and opening up the space.

"We pretty much started from scratch," says owner Jim Rhoades. "When we put this together 10 years ago, it was the hottest, most fun location, and we wanted to get back to that. Our original slogan was 'A way cool place to eat' and the restaurant started to get a little tired."

Rock City Grill's rear dining room now is much more spacious, able to accommodate groups of 45 people. The pizza bar also has been expanded.

Rhoades says Rock City is going to revamp its menu, likely by mid-June. But don't worry — he says the Thai pizza isn't going anywhere. ♦
