  • Dinner at Rock Bottom
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/9/2014
    Dinner at Rock Bottom with the wife, daughter, and grandma. Ordered a steak medium with grilled broccoli. Steak was more of a high medium well and the broccoli a little charred (maybe it was supposed to be that way but I didn't care for it). We filled our growlers with Piper IPA and Red Ale. Pretty good. Their beer always is. Was saddened to learn Tankbuster had been discontinued (nut brown ale) but hopefully it will be brought back. Service was fantastic, with the only exception being on our previous visit, when we checked in the hostess cancelled our OpenTable reservation instead of checking us in. Overall a good experience as usual. Good beer good food good service. We'll be back.

    I will start with the food was good, once we got it. My food came out great but my husband's order was incorrect. The waitress took it back and instead of remaking it immediately, they put the order at the end of the line again and we had to wait at least 20 minutes for it to come back. I was done with my food by the time he got his. The server offered a free dessert and was apologetic, but it would have been nice if one of the managers who brought the food out, would have apologized or come over to us to apologize as well.

    Enjoyed our visit from the get go. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Our food was served within a reasonable time. Being a vegetarian, there were only a few choices, but the veggie tacos were delicious, best I've ever had. It's nice to have a veggie dish that is not stuffed with corn and spinach, which I am allergic to. I will be back, and hope to find more meat, chicken and seafood free dishes. We had some beer samplers, which I loved, you can request a sampler of any beer (I don't drink a lot). They had some quite tasty brew, and the samplers that I didn't like, my lunch buddy did. It worked out great. The only downside is the drive across town to get there. Maybe there might be a new location in the future?

    My husband and I come here often to have a REALLY GOOD beer and a snack in the bar just to hang out and talk. It's a clean and safe environment for everyone! The restaurant section is great for gathering with your friends to eat, drink, and be merry! We do it often and would definitely recommend it to others.

    We don't eat out much, this is the 4th time we've eaten at Rock Bottom. It would be a perfect rating except for the fact that they seem to be out of something most of the time. Our first time was perfect, the second time no salmon, third was no asiago cheese (which nixes my favorite appetizer) and the fourth they didn't have anymore of a beer we wanted. The manager told us that the beer was seasonal and they were out for the year. I didn't see anything that said it was seasonal, it's just kinda disappointing that this great place doesn't seem to plan well...

    Menu changes seasonaly, but there are a few staples? Like the steaks, that always remain. The real highlight here is the beer, and the brews available are outstanding. Great place for dinner with friends or for a date, if you are going in Friday, make a reservation, because Fridays are super busy.

    Good beer and pub food. But a real bummer they block Open Table from 5pm to 9pm on Friday and Saturdays. May as well not be an Open Table restaurant any more. What's the point? If I were Open Table I would require them to use it all of the time. And especially Fri/Sat pm that's the whole point of Open Table reservations. For that reason alone, we go to Colorado Mountain Brewery up to once a week. CMB doesn't mess around with blocking Open Table on Fr/Sat and they have great food and beer!

    I'm pretty much done here. I have had HORRIBLE service three of last four times I visited. I like the atmosphere okay I suppose. It can get too loud for my taste when they have large parties (which they do, but it is appropriate for the venue) The food has been mediocre EVERY time. None of it is bad, but I never once said "WOW! This is great!" They are priced competitively enough with similar establishments and their portions might even be a little better but I would much rather pay the same price for less food and an outstanding dining experience. They just don't deliver for me. I'll be back if that is where the crowd is going that night, but not likely to make any more open table reservations here.

    What used to be a regular stop on our family's list of restaurants has become lackluster. Lately, our order frequently has one or two minor problems and the table service (not including the bar) is adequate at best. When our girls got back their "make your own" pizzas they must have been made from another table. When they received the remade pizzas the sauce in each tasted extremely different. Not bad, just different as if the sauce came from two different batches that weren't seasoned consistently or were different ages. Finally, the price just didn't justify the quality. I paid 90 dollars for three apps, two kid's pizzas, 3 soft drinks, two beers, two mimosas including tax and tip.

    I always enjoy this restuarant. I made reservations through OpenTable and we were seated immediately. Service is friendly and prompt. Loved the hazelnut encrusted chicken with white cheddar mashed potatoes. The mediteranian pizza was also very good (and large). The best part was sharing the enormous slice of carrot cake, delicious! Definitely a restuarant I will return to again.

Although it was a weekend and they were as busy as i have ever seen them, they were back to true form. Our server was great, our open table reservation was processed properly, the food was terrific and on time! Nice work Rock Bottom!
