The Rock Bottom Rocks!
This is a great place for burgers and beers. They have their own beers on tap and feature guest beers on tap. Portion sizes are quite generous...the carrot cake is huge. Don't plan on ordering appetizers for yourself, they are definitely meant for sharing. It is quite busy though...strongly recommend a reservation. I often go with a large group and management is really good about working with you, as long as you give them a heads up in advance. They do let you make reservations for up to 8 on-line. It is a boisterous place so be prepared for it to be a little on the loud side. I have found the wait staff there to be excellent at working with large groups.

Service was prompt and very attentive. Food was excellent for a chain restaurant. Location in Boston makes it a great choice for a pre-theater meal.

Restaurant was chosen because
Restaurant was chosen because of past positive experience at Rock Bottom and proximity to theater that we were attending. Food was good, windows on busy Downtown Boston theater district added great energy to the evening. Excellent service! Although very busy, the server gave us ample attention without hovering. This was a birthday celebration for our granddaughter. The server helped her to fine-tune her dinner selections. There were lots of kids there, but since the noise level is always high anyway, all the kid noises just blended in.

This restaurant was great.
This restaurant was great. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. She made a point of checking on us regularly without relaly bugging us. We only had appertizers. One was nachos and they were great. Instead of being stacked really high with dry chips they are spread out on a large platter so every bite has toppings on them and very delicious. The buffalo wings were perfectly spiced and the vegetable eggrolls were delicious. Most of us had margaritas but one girl had the pineapple mojito that the waitress recommended and said it was excellent. A very fun atmosphere. We didn't sit outside this time, but definitely want to go back to try their main courses. You wont be disappointed.

Waitress was nice enough but
Waitress was nice enough but didn't seem able to anticipate our needs (silverware, salt/pepper, refills, etc.). Maybe she was new?

Before The Theater
My niece and I went to Rock Bottom before a show at the Wilbur Theater. We had excellent service; our waitress knew our time constraints and accommodated us. The food was great!

I was bummed to find that there are some recent menu changes in effect. The most notable was, they changed the cheese sauce for RB's legendary ballpark pretzels. But the real headline was the FANTASTIC server I had.

Enjoyed the dinning experience, it was noisy but there was road construction near by, wasn't crazy about the Mac & cheese but the rest of our selection were very good . Ribs and the chicken fried chicken was really good, next time in Boston I would come back. Service was excellent.

Great pre show meeting place
This about the 3rd time I've been to Rock Bottom. Perfect location for a preshow dinner or drinks and apps. The menu changes and keeps up with the seasons so there is always something new to try. They also handle groups well and I saw a few kids there on my way out.

We come here a lot for lunch.
We come here a lot for lunch. Food is decent, but on the pricer side for what it is. Service is inconsistent though - as someone who has been a server I can tell when staff is undertrained and it appears to be the case here.

pre concert dinner
Arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and was seated promptly. Waitress was excellent, attentative and personable. Food was above average bar food, nicely served. Beer choices are excellent, both their own tap brews as well as regional/national bottle selections. Service was prompt and timely allowing a liesurely dinner before the show.

Awesome spot before a show!
At 5:30pm there was a 45min walk-in wait but we had a reservation and were seated right away. The energy at this place was awesome for a Thursday night in the city. This place has a ton of beer to choose from and the prices were unbelievably low for a bar literally steps away from the Wilbur Theatre. It was 3.50 for most of the draft beers on the menu and they had a beer of the week that was 3.00. The food options were great too-- I got chicken avocado sandwich and my friend got pulled pork sandwich. Both were made well, had plenty of flavor and tasted great. Our server was attentive and answer all of our questions about beer, wine and food. The draft beer makes my top 5 as the amount of carbonation the house brews was almost undetectable.

A good choice jn the theatre distri
We went for dinner before going to the theatre. This restaurant serves a reasonably priced and varied menu. Service was attentive but not overly so. Food was tasty and portions were the right size. Good beer and wine selections.

Good reliable food and diverse menu
Rock Bottom is a favorite before-concert (or theater) place for a good and quick bite or beer. The food is very good, the beer is as well. Prices are reasonable. Can be noisy so not a place for a special occasion or romantic dinner, but a fun place to meet up with friends.

"perfect after show spot"
I work close by and recommend my guests here often. Over the weekend I attended a show with my family and made 10:15pm reservations for dinner. Our server was warm and friendly. Very quick with our drinks and food! Will absolutely continue to recommend!

Great place to grab dinner before a show. Good food, lively atmosphere and won't break the bank.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
After dropping a ton of money on theater tickets - if you want to go and enjoy dinner with that - choose RBB. Prices are cheaper than we pay in the Burbs...and the food is GREAT!!!!!!!!
drinks, app, dinner, dessert for 4 - $125. IN BOSTON ACROSS FROM THE THEATER! Can't beat it -

Good place to eat before a show
Food and drinks were great. Our server looked like he had a rough night though.
We usually go to Rock Bottom before theater events with teh kids.

I had a late dinner at Rock
I had a late dinner at Rock Bottom after a show on a Sunday night. Think of it as an upscale sports bar. The ambiance is dark and comfortable with many TV's and a large bar. The noise level due to the music can very high. It was not packed on a Sunday night, but it can be on other nights with a pretty mixed crowd. It is within walking distance of most of Boston's theaters. There is nothing particularly fancy about the food, but it is consistently tasty and inexpensive. The house-brewed beers are also excellent. I have never had an issue with service the few times that I have dined here. It is a good choice when you are looking for a casual and relatively cheap dinner, late night snack, or drink.
