We grabbed dinner and drinks here before a show around the corner at The Riverside Theater. Service was fantastic even though the place was packed. I had the chicken avocado sandwich with a side of macaroni & cheese (which was to die for!). My friend had the fish tacos and said they were excellent. Dinner for two plus maybe four... More

I hadn't been to Rock Bottom for a really long time and was disappointed to see how much the quality of food has declined. Years ago, I would stop in with friends for a casual meal. The beer cheese bread with dip was a favorite. It's no longer served, nor is the pasta dish that used to be fairly decent.... More

Good choice for a quick meal and a local brew. Had lunch and dinner at this location and both were good. Wait staff is friendly and service is prompt.

I am giving this a three because the waitress was fantastic but the food was so/so. Our food was luke warm at best. The beer was great! We were lucky enough to get into the parking lot next to the restaurant. We won't be in a hurry to go back...too many other restaurants to pick from.

Pub food PLUS! Burgers and chicken, of course, but I had an awesome margherita pizza. And, they brew their own rootbeer, which is delicious!

We had a lot of requests for Dominic our server. There were 8 of us, and we needed separate checks, he was very willing and able! We enjoyed the food, and the portions were well sized. I had a burger and could not finish it all. I tried the raspberry ice tea but wanted to try the mango lemonade, and... More
