Diner Reviews
  • "Restaurant was very accommodating in changing my reservation time as my friends were a little late arriving in the city. When we got to the restaurant, we were seated immediately. We had a great meal and enjoyed the food and time together. Only complaint was that there was a drink on the menu the server told us they never have (don't know the exact item but it had something to do with cucumber). Anyways, if a drink is never available, it should not be on the menu. Our friend really wanted to have it and it was a bit of a letdown to get the explanation we received. Outside of that, all was good although Fountain Square was a bit out of control as we left the restaurant. Not exactly a great environment but the restaurant had no control of it."

  • "Our lunch started great - the in house brewed IPA was delicious and the two appetizers recommended by our helpful and cheery waitress were very good (Jalapeno Pretzels and a Crab Dip with crostini). Unfortunately, our burgers were not as good as expected. The meat was pretty bland and over-packed, there were some burnt spots on the burger, and the toppings were neither fresh nor particularly generous. It was lunch on Sunday, so the small crowd may translate into less quality, but we were not very impressed."

  • "Very busy Saturday with Beyoncé and Jay Z in town for concert, had a reservation and was seated quickly my server was great!!!!! Wish I remembered her name. The food was just OK nothing special at all kinda TGI Fridayish haha. Overall nice clean casual place to have dinner or lunch or if you have children seems like a solid place to go. If you are a foodie you certainly want to skip this place."

  • "Have been here a number of times since it opened. Service is always prompt and friendly. Food is OK, not great (better though than most bar food). Nice place to go before a ball games or in our case, prior to a show at the Taft. Strongly recommend a reservation."

  • "We found ourselves early, and thought to wait at the bar, but found out they could seat us immediately. Our booth afforded a view of Fountain Square and the buzz of activity with the separation of glass so we didn't feel such a part of the melee out there. We were able to watch the Reds game easily, as TVs placement was advantageous. Our wait person was discreet but attentive, and we felt well taken care of. The craft beer and Brewery Chicken Nachos were amazing (huge portion - enough for four!), and so filling we decided to forego and entree and settle for another starter, the Mini Street Tacos (Steak), which melted in our mouth! then the massive Carrot Cake, which we took to go. Bravo!"

  • "The food and service was great. But the drinks and the bar scene were the main reason for going and we were very disappointed. The mixed drinks were awful and for being a brewery, they did not have much of a good beer selection. We would go back and recommend, for the food and service, but nothing else."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "We selected Rock Bottom for the two of us to dine, because we could get a reservation and because it is convenient and close to the downtown hotels....and mostly because the beer and the food are always good! It didn't disappoint!"

  • "Visit here every month after, or before Aronoff. This past week was before a performance and even though we told our waiter that it appeared he slowed down service instead of helping us out and speeding up things. Also, there were three of us and the one meal we ordered, a steak, was tasteless."

  • "Although we really didn't need the reservation, because it was a Sunday and it was later in the evening, it was nice to know we had them. I very much enjoyed the ease of making it on your app. Thanks to a friend who recommended it. Will definitely be using it again! Thanks"

  • "Rock Bottom at Fountain Square is a classic, and it has been for many years. Our server Chris was exceptional, and he catered to our every need with friendly conversation and a winning smile. We had dinner and a couple of drinks there before a show at the Taft, then returned after the show for a late-night drink, when Clay took care of us with friendly service and knowledgeable beer lore. Rock Bottom has a casual and comfortable atmosphere, excellent dining room and bar, and service with a smile. We will return, and I do recommend the experience."

  • "I got a full rack of ribs and they were pretty dry. The enchiladas were like a frozen dinner. Seemed like something you cold microwave at home. They sat us away from everything and the waitress was slow to return for service. I'm surprised they don't do anything special for birthdays."
