    Had a larger party (9) at Rock Bottom for a late lunch. We tried a variety of beers (all good) and foods (also all good). The nachos and ballpark pretzels are easy to share and both were great. A favorite was the kid pizza where the ingredients were brought to the table prior to cooking and the child can put the pizza together him/herself before it goes in the oven. That was a big hit among the kids (and, let's be honest, the adults too!). Our service started a bit slow, but steadily improved as the meal went along. We all left full and happy. One tip - be sure that you are a member of the Mug Club if you want to try any of their beers - the perks are well worth the free cost!

    It was my son's 21st birthday and even though we go there every year for his birthday he couldn't wait to have a beer with dinner! Our waiter was fantastic and talked to him about the different beer selections. The food was very good, dessert was awesome, warm donut holes with caramel sauce!!!! Had a group of 9 people, no one left dissappointed.

    While Rock Bottom is a chain it still makes the microbrews locally at the restaurant so you get great fresh local beers. A worth while visit for local beer.

    I told her it was my wifes birthday and she told me she would make note of it and let the server know but nothing happen. Every where else I have gone has always sang happy birthday but for some reason you did not. Very disappointed in your front staff. Not only did I tell the host but I also made note of it on the reservation. Joe

    The food was very good and the service was better than it has been in past experiences. The only issue I had was that when we arrived, they said they didn't have a record of our reservation, so I'm not sure if this will apply to my Open Table account.

  • Busy Mother's Day

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    I understand Mother's Day is busy but basic problems here. Waitress was friendly and other wait staff helped her. However, it looks like the waitresses bus/clean their own tables. There are no bus boys. So on a busy day like a holiday, the plates from the appetizers and salads for my Party of five remained there along with the entrees. Waitresses have to clean tables and service the tables at the same time which on a busy day had us waiting for refills etc. Refills on soft drinks only when requested. We ordered the Brewery Platter appetizer and it was not worth $ 15.95. Long Island Ice Tea at $ 9.75 priced high. Entrees OK but not ok at those prices. Bathrooms not clean during entire dinner. There are better choices at better prices.

    Well I wish I could say I enjoyed my visit to Rock Bottom Brewery - Yorktown but unfortunately I was never given the opportunity to try the food or drinks. We arrived and were promptly seated and then we were promptly ignored. We sat at our table for 20 minutes as waiters and waitresses walked by and no one said anything to us! We weren't even brought water or silverware. Other tables around us were being served but we were totally ignored. We waited for 20 minutes before deciding to leave and as we walked out the door the hostess (who had seated us) thanked us for coming and said she hoped we had enjoyed our meal... seriously??? I will never visit this restaurant again... beware!!

    Server was excellent, food very good. I eat here often and usually everything is very good except this weekend. People really need to mind their kids. These idiots allowed their kid to run all over the restaurant run up to others tables and bang on them, climb under the chairs tripped two waiters and be just totally annoying. The manager should take action and ask them to leave.

    I love coming to Rock Bottom because of their very extensive menu but I also love their beer. I try a new beer every time I visit. This time was no exception. I tried the newly brewed/tapped Article Monkey. The fish tacos were good but a little spicy for my liking. If you're looking for a great dessert, try the chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream.

    Was getting together with old friends. We all have little kids so dining out can be a headache sometimes. We had a party of 12 and were seated right at our time of reservation. We were greeted by 2 servers who expedited our orders in order to keep the kids calm. Food was really good. Beers were great. Exactly what I was hoping for with a chain micro brewerey.

    Good was good, and service was good as well. Only complaint about the the meal was the kids at the next table misbehaving a fair amount. On tip to the restaurant would be to not put everyone together in one area of tables when other areas are wide open. Spread us out and let us have our privacy!

    I have been to the Rock Bottom Brewery - Chicago before so I decided to try the Yorktown location since I have heard so much about this location being so nice. The food was very good! I took my father for a small birthday dinner and he loved it! The most popular drinks are your samplers which is the best option if you want to say that you have tried all of their beer options. I will be back there again.

  • The menu has so many choices
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 3/9/2014
    The menu has so many choices that no matter the cuisine we may have a taste for, there is always a good option available. The SW eggrolls are always incredible and the chili was spicy and excellent. We waited a lot longer for our entrees to come out than usual, but, once they arrived, the fish, the grilled broccoli, and the BBQ chicken sandwich were all quite good. I must admit that I was hesitant at first because the last time we came here, there were no less than 4 birthdays being celebrated. It was more than a little tedious with all the singing, the flash pictures, and the tired-and-therefore-crying children which accompany such celebrations. This time there was only 1 so it was not quite so intrusive. Glad we gave RB another chance.
