Awful place. I couldn't have a beer there because they say that the minimum age to drink is 25 and a half. Ridiculous.

This was supposed to be a fun night for my family. It turned in to a disaster. To start, I ordered a salad with my meal. I specifically told our waiter to bring it before my meal. He did not, and it arrive with my meal. Then I ordered wine with my meal, a Malbec. They have two Malbecs on... More

Here is a brew chain We have not previously experienced. Well located! Surrounded by museums, attractions and great walking distances for central downtown. With numerous accolades, this brew restaurant has been pioneering award winning craft beers for years.. Room was spacious, bright, and pub comfortable. Service was friendly and brew menu informative. Also good selection of wines and specialty cocktails.... More

Food is good and tasty. Beer is okay but nothing to write home about. Prices are fair for what you get. Service, while professional and friendly is very slow. Not unusual to wait 20 minutes or more before order is brought out. Been here numerous times for business lunches because it's right next to my office in the Rainier Tower.... More

We ate (and drank) at Rock Bottom for both lunch and dinner over our 4-day visit to Seattle. Rock Bottom has a good selection of salads (the green salad is especially well-priced), burgers, pizzas, appetizers and entrees, as well as a reasonable selection of well-priced wine by the glass and of course their own delicious beer. They were quickly able... More

Chose this restaurant based off reviews from other theater guests and the items shown on the menu. When we arrived we learned they just changed their entire menu. Big bummer but oh well. My husband ordered the beer sampler but the waitress took off before he even told her which beer he wanted to try. She returned with their standard... More

Have eaten at many Rock Bottom restaurants and they all amaze me with the local offerings. Had great service from our server and that is a compliment to Ying. Had suggestions which turned out great. The beer is good and I think brewed on the spot.

But probably won't be back. The burger and beer were good but the service was bad. I walked in on a Monday night at 8:30 and waited for over 5 minutes to be seen. No apology for the long wait to be seated on a night with very few customers. The menu was torn and dirty; not a sign of... More

My husband and I came here to chill after a day of driving around Seattle, and it was a relaxing experience. Our waiter was friendly and prompt, the food was good, and the wine/beer was great. The TVs were a little loud when we first got in there, but we were able to tune them out pretty quickly. All in... More

Cannot believe I have not been here before but better later then never. I was their for lunch and decided on the BBQ Brisket Burger on a Kaiser Roll and paired that up with their Nitro American Stout. The Brisket was tender and tasty, the fries crisp and the Nitro amazingly smooth and almost light. Not what I usually expect... More
