We come from out of state and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and food of the restaurant. And that will continue to hold true.

We always come to Rock Bottom
We always come to Rock Bottom before a show (very convenient to the Fifth Avenue or ACT theatres). The menu is varied, the service is good, and the tables are far enough apart so you don't hear everyone else around you talking. The food is good, probably not great, but everyone can find what they are looking for to eat. And for those who drink, there seems to be a very good selection of wines and beers.

Great, inexpensive alternative
Great, inexpensive alternative for dinner when attending the 5th Avenue across the street. The food was good and they catered to our need to get out by a certain time.

Across the street from 5th
Across the street from 5th Ave. theatre so a great place for pre-theatre dinner. Prices are reasonable, not "fine dining" but food is good and servers are friendly.

We went before the show at the 5th Ave it was nice to have reservations we did not have to wait. The service was excellent friendly and helpful. Great lunch before an afternoon at the theater.

"Go To Place"
This is our "go to" place for dinner before going to a 5th Ave production. We have tried other places but always come back to Rock Bottom. Food is great and the beer choices are excellent. We always have very nice wait staff. Being able to make a reservation thru Open Door and walk in and immediately be seated is awesome.

The food was delicious but above that was the wonderful service! I asked the waiter if they had applesauce for my infant son to eat and since they did not, the sou chef made him some! My son loved his homemade applesauce! Thanks for making our trip so pleasant.

Rock Bottom was a nice place
Rock Bottom was a nice place to eat and it's location was an added bonus as I was attending a production at the Fifth Avenue and the ease of parking once, walking to dinner, then directly to the theater certainly was appealing.

Great for Pre-Theater Dinner
We went to the 5th Avenue Theatre for Jersey Boys, and were looking for a casual dining spot offering good food and relatively fast service. We weren't disappointed in either aspect. They are sensitive to theater-goers' needs for relatively fast service, and offer a menu that is fairly broad with relatively good food at fairly reasonable prices. Highly recommend - not so much as a place for fine-dining and atmosphere, but more for a good, casual dining establishment.

Jersey Boys Lunch
Excellent location for patrons attending shows @ 5th Avenue Theatre. Tables by window provide great street view for people watching. Bar area is large and lovely.
5/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went with a group of six. There was no delay in seating us. The waiter was attentive. The food was hot and very good. It is standard bar fare but very tasty. The onion rings were especially good. There was outdoor seating but we sat inside near the Windows inside. Overall very good experience.

A place to go before the 5th Ave
This is right across the street from the theater. Service is good and the food is good - not gourmet, but good. Beer is excellent.

Great menu variety & excellent food
We always make a reservation for our pre-5th Ave. Theater visit. The food is always prepared & presented very good. Large portions allow sharing. They are also noted for their craft beer selection....very good and I'm not a beer drinker. Prices are reasonable, nice location - you don't feel like you are in a crowded down town space. It's very relaxed, great service!

I don't get to Rock Bottom Brewery very often, but I am always able to find something new eat and every item I have ordered so far is something I would order again. For those watching calories and nutrition, they do have nutritional information available on their website for most of their menu items - I did not ask about a nutrition guide while in restaurant though, but you can plan a bit about what you're eating ahead of time, and the waitstaff seems to have a good handle on recommending lighter offerings from the menu if asked. It is also conveniently close to 5th Avenue Theatre, and they have so far gotten us in and out quickly so we've made it to the show on time (reservations recommended for this).

Great casual dining with great food
Right across from the 5th Ave theater the location is ideal for a nice dinner before a show. It was nice so we sat outside on the patio and enjoyed wonderful appetizers and very nice entrees. The chocolate cookie ice cream sandwich dessert was an amazing deal and with three of them and very large for the price, it was great.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for pre-theater meal
Our family dined at Rock Bottom prior to going to the theater. The food was all outstanding, the service was fantastic, the ambiance was vibrant and the whole experience really contributed to a wonderful family evening out.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The brew list was fresh, local and tasty. The server was knowlegable and brought us samples of a nice selection of ales brewed on site.
Outside dining was fantastic on the day we were there 75* and sunny.... but it IS Seattle and the weather is always a crapshoot.

Something for everyone done well!
My party was not able to make the arrival on the 28th, however we did arrive for lunch the next day. One of the standout dishes is the chicken fried chicken. Wow was it delicious! Served over red mashed and country gravy with a side of green apple client slaw to cleanse the palate! There are so many items on the menu, it'll be difficult to not get that again. We arrived at 1130 and by 12 every table was full! This place is a chain, but unlike so many others, Freshly prepared and friendly service.

One major disappointment
When I ordered my drink using Makers Mark bourbon, I was told they had no more in stock. This was 6:00 p.m. Otherwise food and service was very good. If I had more than ice water to drink, it may have been excellent.

Hmm. Not sure what his name was but on Sat, 8/3/2013, 6:30pm reservatins for party of 3 near the bar the male server struck the perfect blend of attentiveness and letting us savor our meal!

Before 5th Avenue
Took 7 yo granddaughter for dinner before going to 5th Ave Theater. Opentable reserv worked well. Had a great relaxed meal, needed to ask for tableware to eat 2 times. Child friendly--can make own pizza and ice cream sundaes. Fun!
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Perfect before 5th Avenue
We have been here several times with our teenage children. The servers are always efficient and engaging. The portions fill a teenage boy. All the food we have had has been excellent. There is a wide variety of different types of food, everyone should be able to find something they like. Service is quick and we always have a wonderful time which kick starts our family evening out at the theater!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife, my 11 year old grandson and myself usually come into the Rock Bottom for dinner prior to attending the show at the 5th Ave theater and always get great food and like the atmosphere. This last attendance I had ordered the Cajun Pasta and truly loved it! Also, our server was Savannah and she was there keeping our drink glasses full when they were nearly empty. Great service!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were there to celebrate our co-workers birthday, and we had excellent service, our food was received promptly, and it was hot!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
the food is normally pretty good, but the last 2 times i've been in, my medium steak was well done not medium. that dries out the steak and lowers its taste. also, the waiter didn't come back to check until we were almost done eating

Rock solid Rock Bottom
Rock Bottom never disappoints. Food is good, arrives in a reasonable time, service is excellent - attentive, friendly, with good follow-through. A different server brought the meals than our waiter who took our orders, which tells me that they don't let food sit under heat lamps until it is convenient for our waiter to pick it up. She did follow through after we'd been served, to make sure there were no surprises or disappointments. Check was delivered swiftly, and run through quickly as well. Food was great, beer too.
The menu is an old friend for those of us who've gone there for years, but intriguing seasonal or monthly specials always challenge our status quo, and never disappoint. I said that already. Rock Bottom never disappoints.

The jalapeno sirloin was really, really good! The veggie hemp crust pizza was rather dry and boring, though. Overall, we had a very nice dining experience.

Our favorite pre-theater restaurant
I look forward to eating at Rock Bottom almost as much as I look forward to going to the 5th Avenue Theater afterwards!

Good food, a bit salty
Got the pretzel sticks with cheese dip... Amazing and huge! Also got burgers, the meat was salty, nice bun though, good onion rings.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tasty and fast service
The food was very tasty and the service was very quick. We were going to The 5th Avenue Theater for a show and they served the food quickly so that we could make the first curtain. Lots of customers were in the bar to watch all of the football games. Good experience and I plan to go again.

Convenient to Downtown Event Venues
We like the location, the beer, the happy hour, and love the nachos on main menu. And the salads. Enjoy making reservations online for dining room. It looks like there are areas of dining room that could be quieter for those of us who don't do well with background noise.
