“Great food after a family visit to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

After a family visit to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, we enjoyed another great family meal at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. This was our second visit to the establishment, and the second visit was as nice as our first over a year ago. Pleasant, friendly and efficient waitresses/servers and an excellent menu with great variety without having to read a book! They also have a great kids menu that seemed to satisfy our younger hungry critters. The day we visited (7/6/14), they had a fundraiser that featured many kids activities, silent auction, games and balloon-making clowns. They even had a nice band playing favorite tunes in the bar area. All in all, an easily recommended restaurant, with great burgers, salads, sandwiches and drinks (excellent variety of made-on-site micro brews, as well as homemade root beer and pink lemonade!). You won't be disappointed.

“Decent food for a bar/brewery type place”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I've been here a few times and usually settle for a burger or some appetizers with drinks. Food tastes fresh, drinks are about average priced outside of happy hour. It's the kind of place I go when passing by and can't think of anything else.

“Beer Sampler”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Good sampler of beer for $6 and food is above average for this type of chain restaurant. Service is fast and friendly, I will definitely look them up next time.
