    My husband and I wanted a place to eat after we finished at the Convention Center. This place is literally at a red line station. We got seated right away. Very reasonably priced, really good food. We would definitely go back.

    We had dinner during a friend's visit - best things about the restaurant (for our occasion anyway) included the proximity to the Max stop since our friend was coming from the airport and the exciting atmosphere of having a home Timbers game happening too. Pretty good food. Fairly noisy. Good service.

    Had a business lunch and there were 3 of us. I looked for a low carb option, and there were several. Had the chicken breast with salsa and green beans. It was actually quite good and it met my needs. The others were happy with their meals also. I will go back.

    My Girlfriend and I enjoy coming to Rock Bottom. It has become our favorite spot to dine. On this night we were enjoying our time together when our waiter, Anthony, said he was bored and proceeded to sit down at our table while we were having a conversation. I understand being friendly but inviting yourself to sit with us without being asked is a little to much. So I hope he enjoyed the huge tip after saying thank you and not offering to bring my change back. I didn't ask for it because I just wanted to get out of the restaurant. We felt very uncomfortable. I wish Barrett would have stay and served us and not got sent home for the night. Make's it very difficult for us to want to come back!

    Our dinners were satisfying and hit the spot. In our party of six there was not a single complaint. Our waitress was reasonably attentive and she was pleasant. The beer however tasted like rot gut and was not very good. Surprising with the amount of breweries in the greater Portland area.

    Several friends from college were in town visiting, and this was a great place for us all to meet, eat & drink. We all have very diverse palates & food issues, and we found something for everyone on this menu. The food was great, as was the service, and we all had a great time! I would definitely go back.

    Been to Rock Bottom a number of times but this is the first time in the restaurant section - we usually go to the bar. The booth was a fairly tight fit, and I'm fairly small. The service was excellent (server was named Emily - note to manager, she did you proud). Shared starter was the Southwestern rolls - pretty good, my wife enjoyed her tuna salad but my ribs and chicken was a bit disappointing. The chicken was luke-warm and the ribs way overcooked. I didn't send them back as luckily I like then that way but I can see someone else being really disappointed. Beer selection is good (some of it brewed on the premises) and you're right next to a MAX stop. Can get noisy when full but has a good feel about the place.

    I ordered off the menu while husband chose from the selections offered for the set $29 price which included his drink. My meal was good, but his "egg roll" appetizers, salmon, and brownie dessert choice was off the charts! Although he gave me some bites, I found myself wishing I also had chosen the same meal as it was GREAT!! Our service was quite good and even though Rock Bottom is renovating at present, it wasn't something that affected our enjoyment of eating there.

    Our waiter was awesome, and the drinks were well mixed (keep em coming!) - but this place is severely over-priced. We ordered the country chicken and the chicken ribs combo plate and they were yummy in an Applebee's kind of a way. Go for the drinks and happy hour food menu, otherwise only if you're in the area with an empty stomach and a full wallet.

    The experience at Rock Bottom is one of Portland's best. I always choose to go here because their food is so unique and they have plenty of options of beverages. I would like to see more televisions around, but I still love the atmosphere. If you are willing to have a good time and eat some great food, I totally recommend Rock Bottom of Portland to anyone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/31/2014
    We had a server who made us feel like he was rushing to turn tables. He replaced my coke before it was 1/4 empty. He removed plates before we were even done. He asked us moments later if there was anything else. We had only been there 35 minutes, and it's unlikely I will ever take a client there again. I will, however, return when it's just myself and a friend wanting beer, wings, burgers, and a fun lively environment. But no more professional lunches. Far too noisy as well.

    We planned a family night out for dinner and the Jerry Seinfeld show. Show was at 9:30 - made reservation for 7:00 to give us plenty of time to eat. It was a good thing because my husband's dinner was not prepared as he ordered and after everyone had finished eating, his dinner was served. There were a couple of large groups that night, waiter staff was very busy. Drinks are priced a bit high for all the ice they put into the glass.

    Good beer, acceptable wine (for me) and food that was quite good for a brew pub. We visited for lunch during an usual cold snap in December and the restaurant was too cold for us to eat without our coats. We went back outside in the frigid air already thoroughly chilled, making for an uncomfortable afternoon of shopping and sight-seeing, Little things like that make a lasting impression.

    Rock Bottom has a very good variety of options. My staff thought the restraunt provided the many options in a nice context and presentation. From Vegan to burgers to pasta, there were spicy as well as 'normal' seasoned dishes. Good food, nicely preesented, with something for almost everyone.

    I find it hard to rate a restaurant when the quality varies so widely. Burger was good. Chicken fried chicken needed an electric chainsaw to cut and was exceptionally dry. Beer is OK, which in Portland means it is below average.

    Another very good meal at Rock Bottom. Short of a menu change that took the wonderful Hazelnut crusted chicken off the menu, we had a great meal at Rock Bottom. Our table was just about ready when we arrived, and they were hosting some big parties due to Homecoming. The service was still great even with the big parties and the server was awesome. Great food, good atmosphere and great company. Thank you again Rock Bottom.

    My Husband and I recently travelled to Portland for a wedding and upon arrival we wanted to find a good place that we could out for supper, which doesn't happen very often. When we got there we were really impressed with the atmosphere. It had nice dim lighting, a lounge area as well as a restaurant area. They played great music and the menu had a large variety of unique food for not super expensive. It was a really neat place to go for a late evening dinner and we really enjoyed the food. The staff were really friendly and we did not have to wait long for our food. I would recommend this restaurant to others and would be happy to return!
