Reservation was good, sta
Reservation was good, sta down right on time. Food was very good and service was excellent. Only issue with food was we asked for the vegetables to be well done , they were not. We did have the hot donut holes for dessert, great finish to our meal!

We enjoyed everything we ordered-
We enjoyed everything we ordered- drinks, appetizer, entrees and desserts. The menu has so many choices that it was really hard to choose. I especially loved my entree though, Hazelnut Crusted Chicken! We appreciated the Birthday cupcake and we ordered the Carrot Cake for 2. Three of us couldn't even finish it because it was so gigantic. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive to our needs the entire night.
Overall this was great choice for the four of us.

Maybe keep the music not so
Maybe keep the music not so loud! Very difficult to carry on a conversation. Otherwise this is a fantastic place – great menu – great location (aside from the construction), and a very competent, friendly staff. The restaurant is also handicapped accessible, which is great because my wife uses a wheelchair.

A short wait at bar before
A short wait at bar before we got our reservation was fine. Beer, food, and service were more than adequate.

This is a good place to bring clients or co-workers for a nice lunch in Milwaukee. Food is good, Service is good. Would definately visit again.
4/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had great service and the food was very good - just right for our group of three adults and three teen girls after long drives.

Dined here before a concert at the Bradley Center. Nice for a casual dinner. Our party of 6 was seated indoors overlooking the Milwaukee River - that was a nice bonus! Nachos were a nice appetizer for the group. Burgers were excellent - I wouldn't typically think that a burger was worth commenting on.... Shrimp and lobster enchilada was okay - the shell was too mushy. Pulled pork sandwich was good. Service was very good. Waitress was willing to do separate checks for the different groups at our table.
We were seated at the time of our reservation. The restaurant was very busy with the pre-concert crowd, and they were equipped to handle it.

My friends and I ate here before the Carrie Underwood concert. Riley was our server. She was attentive, bubbly, and friendly. :)

Nice place before a show
We went before a show at Riverside. Perfect location to the show. Zachary, our server, was excellent. Great suggestions and just attentive enough. Food was typical of a brew pub. Beer was very good. Definitley recommend for dinner before going to the shows down the street.

Great location - great food
We met here before going on the RIverside Theatre for a show. The food was really good and the service was very good and quick. The hazelnut crusted chicken was really good.

Rock Bottom on Mother's Day
I enjoyed my visit on Mother's Day. There was a breakfast menu available to do "brunch" but I ordered off the menu instead. I had the turkey meatloaf dinner. It came with cheddar mashed and actual veggies that didn't appear frozen. My son had the mad and cheese with shrimp. He said the pasta was cooked just right and he really liked it. I ordered a kiddie steak meal for my elderly father to go. It came with fresh carrots, celery, and apples (and fries). I really liked that the kid's meal was healthier and there were more choices. The bloody mary was a great flavor. It was garnished with celery, lemon, and lime. I like a pickle or olive usually as well. The menu listed the bloody mary at $8.50, but the bill was for $13.50, but it was fixed.

Dinner with the folks
Great service. Delicious food. Took my parents for dinner for their anniversary before a show. Perfect for them!
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good good, good service
We were visiting Milwaukee and needed a place to eat. Booked a reservation to this restaurant through Open Table It was 8:15 pm and we booked the reservation for 8:30 pm). We walked in at 8:24 pm and there were several parties waiting for a table and we got right in ahead of most of the others. Service was good and we enjoyed the food and beers. Lots of variety.
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server was outstanding. She was great with kids too. Food and beer were very good. A fun place and a good meal.

Reservations don't matter
Reservations are only good for inside dining - not patio

Rock Bottom - Rock On
If there was one bad (still good) thing to say about Rock Bottom it would be that they have too many choices of food to pick from!! It took us forever to decide what we wanted because so many items sounded delicious. We had reservations for a group of 6 that as the night went on, grew to 9 and Rock Bottom was very compatible with that change. Our service was good as expected and the food exceeded our expectations. On a warm summer night, outdoor seating would make the most romantic dinner ever overlooking the river. Rock Bottom is fit for couples as well as groups and isn't nearly as loud as other restaurants.

Hi, I had made a reservation for a birthday celebration and requested a patio table. Upon arrival, it was as if the staff had either not had or seen the reservation or just did not care. We had a wonderful meal, but issues abound: meal came before silverware for two people, two sharing did not get extra plate, drink refills were slow but waitress kept trying to give additional bar orders, absolutely nothing said or done for birthday even though I told two hostesses and server. Spent well over $100. Not sure I would return.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Whether you are looking for food, drinks or a great time, this is the place to be.

Mac and cheese
I have been to Rock Bottom once before and wanted to get the chicken mac n cheese but got the salad. This time I got the chicken mac n cheese with bacon. I highly recommend it. It is rich and delicious.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noisy but good for family!
We were visiting Milwaukee on a family trip, thought it would be perfect since it was by the river and our boys would love to see the boats go by!
It was very noisy, but the food was good and we enjoyed our experience.

I went to the Rockbottom Brewery Restaurant hearing that they give you a sampler of 5 of their freshly brewed beers. The wait staff was courteous and helped me in my food decisions. Very knowledgeable and kind. The beer was very tasty and my overall experience was a great one!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took fiends visiting from Phoenix. Immediate seating on the outdoor patio. Scenic view on the river. Excellent food with great selection. Asiago Artichoke and Crab Dip appetizer was delicious. Very relaxing and enjoyable for visitors after hectic week.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were entertaining friends from out of town and we all really enjoyed our food and the Berry Bash Sangria is the best!!
Also, we were seated right away which was very much appreciated.

My boyfriend and I went here
My boyfriend and I went here for our date night and had a great experience. We were sat quickly because of the reservation we made prior and our table was in a quiet area away from the crowds. Our waiter was great he was prompt, helpful, and funny. The food was absolutely great. The ceased salad was one of the best I've had. Also ordering drinks was fast as there was no back up at the bar as I've experienced at other restaurants. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a WINNER!
We have been to Rock Bottom in Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Downers Grove, and Milwaukee. Each time the food was awesome, the beer cold and the service wonderful. The food is reasonable and great selection never have had a bad meal. Love trying the different craft beers that have, never disappointed. I would highly recommend Rock Bottom all around great place to go!
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
The entire night was great. The food was wonderful. We will be back again.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went here for our 1 year wedding anniversary. The food was great. It was a little on the pricy side for what we got but I guess that's just downtown Milwaukee. Would have loved to sit on the patio and looked at the river. All in all it was a great place.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great start Bachelorette Party
Open Table was the way to go. Without a reservation, we would have waited 80 minutes for a table. Easy to reserve and even easier at check in. Although the bar was busy, the waitress kept us up-to-date on our drink order. The food was amazing...fresh, hot, and pleasing to the eye. We had a food allergy at the table and the waitress and kitchen accommodated the request without issue. Thanks for a wonderful meal and start to our night!

Nice evening at Rock Bottom
A typical late Sunday afternoon at Rock Bottom. A birthday party at the next tables, sports fans watching the football games, etc.
Food was very good but not spectacular. My friend had a Cobb salad. It was huge. My seared tuna salad was very good.
Beer was outstanding as always. Love the Rocktoberfest! Service was also very good.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We returned to Rock Bottom, before going to see a show. We sampled items from their short term September menu. Our entrees were a BBQ chopped Chicken salad and a BBQ chicken breast. Both were great. This restaurant has great food and good prices. You won't be disappointed.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here is always good.
The food here is always good. We told the waitress that we were attending a performance at the Pabst so our food was served in a very timely manner. It is always a pleasure to sit out on the patio and watch the action on the water.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great place for date night! The service was wonderful and the food was great!! We will be visiting again soon!!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun place to eat
We had tickets for a show at the Riverside. Needed to find someplace to meet friends from out of town. Interesting menu. Lots to choose from, I am a vegetarian, my husband is a meat eater. My husband loved the beer. The services was great!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food - better service
Our food was excellent and the whole experience was really defined by our waitress Sarah. She was awesome!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten here on many occassions and never had a bad experience. Staff is always friendly and food is always Great.

Marqeutte Parents Wknd Place to B!
This isn't the first time that I've eaten here - and as always the food is fantastic. Although we had a 5PM Reservation - there was already a load of folks waiting to get in. We were seated as soon as we checked in - unfortunately they sat us no where near the River / Windows - but instead put us closer to the kitchen. All in all it was a great dining experience. The company you eat with is more important than where you are seated. Just thought that booking through Opentable would have given us a leg up. Shucks!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had never been to the restaurant and decided to go to it because it was right next to the downtown theatre where we were seeing a musical. I had soo much fun and enjoyed the food tremendously. Everybody I was with cleaned their plates. My friend paid for the extra time to park in their lot (wasn't too expensive) and we enjoyed the afternoon. I would plan on going back to the restaurant because it was an enjoyable and delicious experience. 5 stars.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pre-show meal!
We dined at Rock Bottom before a show at the nearby Riverside Theatre. The menu is broad, with great sandwiches, burgers, entrees, pizzas, and salads for everyone. A great pick for a night out with a diverse group of diners.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rock Bottom Brewery is located in the middle of Rep, Pabst and Riverside theaters. So it's very convenient if your going to a show, as we were. The food was great. Baby Brat appetizer(a must have), 2 a.m. burger (husband), fish and chips(me), and carrot cake for two. Everything was super delicious except the carrot cake. It was very dry and stale. Not good. Atmosphere was good. The Long Island Ice Tea was great. Strawberry Margarita was okay. Service was a little lacking. Shouldn't have, 4:30 and not busy. When she came to collect the check was odd. She picked up the binder and asked if it was credit. Said no. Then she asked if we wanted the change back. Just take the binder, do the work. Return the card/cash. don't ask. Rude.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was on a college visit and had a great time at Rock Brewery on Sunday evening...Server was fine...but the beer was terrific and the food was very Milwaukee authentic...meat, cheese and beer! I requested a view of the river and they had a great table with a great view that improved as the sun went down!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ask for the back room by the river...you won't be sorry!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Make sure you have reservations!
Luckily we had reservations on Saturday 10/19/2013 or we would of had to wait two hours. The food was outstanding however not much on the plate for the price. I ordered the sirloin which came with mashed potatoes and veggies.....that's it. No salad, bread, soup, nothing. So for the price, I didn't think it was worth it. Would I go back......just for a drink but not for dinner.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
great place to eat before a show
Food is good, the beer, which they make themselves, is excellent, and the Milwaukee location is very conveniently located as a place to eat before going to the Riverside Theater.
It was much busier than I expected for a Tuesday night. Definitely make a reservation if you're on a schedule. If you didn't make a reservation, you can wait at the bar for a table, and they have an excellent selection of quality beers.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
before concert meal
Service excellent provide samples of beer for us to try. My wife had a burger and stated it was very good. I had a hemp crust veggie pizza that tasted excellent but crust was soggy and greasy. The parchment paper it was served on was sitting in oil.

Great birthday celebration!
It was my husband's birthday and your staff did a great job of bringing a delicious dessert to celebrate the night!
