Description: A lively and casual dining experience, we feature fresh, handcrafted beers brewed on premise and an innovative menu. Our beers range in style from Pale Ales and Light Lagers to Stouts, Belgian-styles and Amber Ales. We also brew many specialty and seasonal beers, all of which are handcrafted by our Brewmaster using his original recipes. The atmosphere is rich in woods and gleaming brewing vessels. Our service is friendly and upbeat. Our moderately priced menu features a medley of items ranging from Fish and Chips to Roasted Chicken and Filet Mignon, a variety of interesting salads, and our world famous White Cheddar mashed potatoes.

We stopped here for lunch as it was on our way. It was early in the day, so I didn't try the beer, but it looked like they had a nice selection.

I had the bacon cheddar burger with mac and cheese on the side. It was very juicy and tasty. The mac and cheese wasn't very hot. I'm used to it coming baked in a ceramic bowl. This side came in ceramic, but it wasn't hot. It was good, just not as good as it could have been.

I will say that every one of us in our party enjoyed the food. Portions are perfect to finish your entire plate. The steak was very well prepared so hats off to the chef's! Love the fact that they had a mini steak on the kids menu which also was a perfect size for the kids. I am generally not one to complain about slow service and they were not that busy when we were there. We had to have someone find our server a couple times. We asked for things and in the end she brought after we had finished our meals. From a service perspective the experience was disappointing. So glad the meal was good otherwise the review would have been all negative!

Ate at Rock Bottom La Jolla on Saturday, July 18th, and the food was very good. I had their veggie burger, and it was one of the best that I have ever had! Tip: make a reservation before you go on opentable.com, and you won't wait for a table.

I first tried a Rock Bottom Brewery in Seattle, (Bellevue) over 10 years ago. They have really gone down hill since then. We had the pretzel sticks with cheese dip (really good) and a reuben sandwich, laredo burger, and chocolate cake for dessert. The reuben sandwich had cold meat that tasted like deli meat from a package in a grocery store. The laredo burger was under cooked and my wife only was able to eat half of it. The cake was dry and NOT good. The service was great though, but you don't go to a restaurant for only the service. We wont' be back.

If you can go to non chain, do it but for a good, quick dinner in the neighborhood, it is good. The beer is good, too.
