  • "I went to Rock Bottom to meet a business associate for lunch. The service was wonderful and we were seated at our table promptly. The only suggestion that I would have is to work toward getting lunch time visitors out in one hour. Thank you for everything!"

  • "Had a great lunch at Rock Bottom Brewery. The restaurant was busy, but we had a reservation and had a table immediately. Food was delicious, and the service was fantastic."

  • "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!"

  • "My wife and I made 6pm reservations for dinner before we went to a play at the Aronoff. The food and service was amazing! We were seated right away and everything was just great! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "We had plenty of food and our server was pleasant and prompt. We ordered appetizers which were plentiful and split fish and chips which was very good. The bar was completely full and we had a nice table on the other side of restaurant. Nice casual dining experience."

  • "The Rock Bottom was friendly as always. I was 15 minutes late & they still seated my group. Food was great!"

  • "Beer, food and service were just OK. It had been years since our last visit, and we were disappointed. Bathroom desperately needed cleaning and stocked (out of toilet paper). We notified the hostess when we left who we're chatting and they said they'd take care of it."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "I never would have thought of Rock Bottom as a vegetarian friendly place, but they have one of the best veggie burgers around. It's made fresh and tastes amazing. Pair it with a side of the mac and cheese and you have a warm hearty meal for the cold winter we have been having."

  • "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."
