    Party of five with one in electric wheel chair. Staff accommodated us well. Music was a bit loud on the patio so made talking bit difficult. Most everyone at table really liked their food after a snafoo with the order. The Chicken brischetta was really good.

    We have eaten at Rock Bottom numerous times and there are a number of reasons we enjoy dining here. First the staff is always friendly, attentive and on top of things, second the menu is diverse and the food tasty and finally the location downtown is fantastic. Keep up the good work.

    Although it was great to be seated immediately because of our reservation, our server didn't seem too excited to be there, the atmosphere was weird because of a football game, and nothing about this visit felt special or extraordinary.

    We had a group of 11 work folks and we were able to secure a late reservation when Walmart was in town, smothering the city. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The restaurant is nice inside. A little dark but not too much so. Our waiter was new and although a little slow, did his best to make 10 people happy. The appetizers were basic and good. The main course was tasty, although some folks felt that their meal was not exactly what they ordered. It was a busy night. Overall, a good dining experience!

    We met some family that was in from out of town at Rock Bottom on a Wednesday night. We didn't want to go to any of the trendy downtown spots since there were 8 of us and 3 were kids. Rock Bottom had the perfect setting for the kids to be able to play amongst each other and not really bother anyone else. The service was terrific and the food was delicious as always. We stayed quite a long time catching up and never felt like they were trying to get rid of us. It was a great evening.

    We made a res which was much later than we wanted to go which was the 1st avail.They werent busy when we got there so there was no need for the res. They told us we had to wait for our table for 2 to b cleaned meanwhile they sat other couples who walked n after us until we had waited 15 min and i had to remind the hostess that we had a res. I tried to sign up for their rew prog while waiting on my table and the girl seemed more interested in getting credit for signing me up than helping me register the card. It still isnt registered 5 days later and i cant use until it is. i tried my side and realized it was too spicy for me to eat so i stopped a manager. He told me the side wasnt spicy.I said well i think it is so he brought me some fries.

    Seated promptly inside. Our second visit this week. Sat indoors due to less than acceptable outdoor experience. Service was extremely slow. In fairness to server, it was clear she had many tables and larger groups. However, we watched our completed order sit under the lamp for nearly ten minutes as she took care of other things, not serving, and conversing with other staff. Also forgot the soup we ordered. Didn't make an issue over food, but fries were only lamp warm, enters buns were warm, but meat was not. Too bad, food taste was good...would have liked it hot. Will not be returning or recommending.

    Made our reservations through open table. Had to wait an additional 15 minutes though tables were available. We we, and others, were encouraged to go to the bar. I suppose to spend money on drinks. When we were seated, our server was outstanding. Wish I remembered her name.good tortilla soup. Kobe sliders had hard(not just toasted) rolls. Note on smoking: if you sit outside, many patrons simple jump the short rail and begin smoking on the other side of the rail/sidewalk. Just like sitting next to you and smoking. No restaurant enforcement since I guess the patron has left their property officially.

    I had heard great things about Rock Bottom's home brews and was not disappointed. We sipped from each other's glasses and loved every one of them. What pleasantly surprised me was how delicious our appetizers were. The Asiago Artichoke And Crab Dip was so cheesy-spicy good I could have had it as a main course! The Southwest Egg Rolls were hot and crispy and filled with tasty veggies and chicken. Yum! Looking forward to returning soon.

    Whenever my wife and I have a dinner and show, we visit RBB at the Promenade. This was the first time at the Downtown spot. Prom night with daughter and her friends. Daughter chose location. Wife and I were seated in different part of restaurant. First noticed menu different. Reservations made ahead... Service and ambience great. No bottom up with Rock Bottom. All upscale!

    Dirty dishes being stored in hall way next to where we sat. Some staff members had head phones on listening to music, so why should they care about the noise of slamming dishes. Hostess dusting off widow from above widow in front door, which was directly over diners. I can go on. Just know it is dirty.

    The wedge salad was picture perfect and looked exactly like it did on their website which is not always the case in a lot of restaurants. They boasted a large wedge of lettuce with loads of blue cheese crumbles, blue cheese dressing and bacon. I was NOT disappointed! I ate light today and paired the salad with a cup of their tortilla soup. My only regret was that I didn't get the bowl instead of the cup - it was SO good!

    You'd think a place that brewed beer on site, with absolutely no distribution costs, would have reasonably priced beer. Not so at Rock Bottom. A "pint" of beer is at least $5.25. How do they get away with that? Probably because they get a lot of tourists - surely locals would not patronize a place with such over-priced beer. And the bar tenders don't seem to know how to actually fill a glass! Not a single pour we got was full. Overpriced and under-poured - no, thanks, too many other choices downtown

    I have been to the Rock Bottom many times and have always enjoyed the food, but this time the pulled pork sandwich was pretty tough. The waiter was kind enough to comp my sandwich. I will probably eat there again, especcially in the summer when they have live music.

    The food was very good. We split a plate and they brought it out on two plates already cut in half. Very nice. I was disappointed in the root beer. It was rather bland. I would think at a place that brews their own it would have more taste. Otherwise good.

    One person in our party ordered steak ,another the blackened tuna salad,someone else grilled chicken and finally I had the salmon.Everyone commented how good there dish was.I was especially pleased because I am on a low sodium diet and the wait staff and chef made sure to omit the sauce and salt from my fish.Also they substituted the rice side for fruit and brought olive oil and balsamic vinegar out for my side salad ,as I can't have regular dressing because the salt content.Most restaurants now have low fat,low carb. and gluten free choices.It's hard to dine out when you have to watch the salt content.I greatly appreciate your flexibility.
