Rock Bottom Brewery Restaurant - Boston Ratings and Reviews
Wasn't bad but I probably wouldn't return. Lobster and shrimp enchiladas were not like traditional enchiladas. They were not finished off baked in the sauce but were served dry with the sauce on the side. Very unusual for enchiladas. It was more like a rolled up taco. Again, not bad but definitely not a traditional enchilada.
I ate here a couple of weeks ago and had a GREAT experience start to finish. This time not so much. The hostess was disinterested bordering on rude. The noise level was very high and when I requested a booth or a table that didn’t have high chairs I was told there weren’t any without really checking. The food was fine but not as good as the first time. Disappointing experience. Not sure if I’ll go back.
The food was really good! It is not a fine dining place but they do have gourmet food (not bar food). There were a lot of tvs to watch the game which was nice. It has a lot of windows and patio space. Sadly it was raining when we went but the inside is nice too! The service was quick and the waiter was very nice.
Service was great and they gave decent wine pours, but the food was terrible. I ordered the smoked chicken tacos which were totally dry and flavorless, and came with hardly any of the toppings listed on the menu. There was like 2 drops of sauce so I actually had to put ketchup on them. They were completely disgusting. Maybe I would come back for a beer, but I'm not itching to return.
Upon arriving at 658 for a 645 reservation we wrre told our table wass given away because we were more than 15 minutes late. So they definitely have math problems. We were late thats fine, I get it but don't make stuff up. Service was scarce, we waited a while for our drinks, friend got a sampler but no follow up as to if she decided on a specific craft. Waitress came to table after we were served to check but did not come back until we were finished. Overall a poor experience. This was our first visit and will be our last even though the food was good. The craft beers aren't anything you can't buy in a store or a better restaraunt/brewery in say, Salem MA.
Sometimes a name says it all and if you want a "Rock Bottom" experience this is the place for you. The service was as poor , the food marginal and that is being kind.
The knowledge of the waitress of the menu was non-existent. we ordered drinks fairly quickly, though apparently they have no ginger ale but have sierra mist. Not sure how a full service bar functions without ginger ale. I ordered iced tea when it arrive it was a glass of tea no ice.
While she was there we put our order in. She indicated bring ice for tea. Ordered fried pickles, she said they do not serve them, had to point out to her the item on the menu. Next asked if onion rings were made onsite, got a yes. Ordered the "made to order" guacamole, asked to have it spicy, got a blank stare from waitress.
After taking order she disappeared for 30 minutes only returning to indicate the fried pickles were not available, no guacamole no ice. When asked were the app was we got quick response "the kitchen was busy, and poof she was gone".
Another 15 minutes then everything shows up, well except ice and utensils to eat. Onion rings were frozen. The guacamole was bland and the consistency of paste.
Now another 10 minutes still no utensils, finally go inside assuming could get utensils at the hostess station. Nope, apparently the utensil's are kept in a safe as it took another 5 minutes to get utensils as one of the staff disappeared into the back of the restaurant.
20 more minutes and the finally after finishing the meal waitress shows up with a glass of ice. We request the bill.
15 more minutes pass and no sign of waitress. Had to go inside to request the bill be sent to table so we are not late for show. another 5 minutes waitress shows up, no bill ......
I brought my family here before a show at the Opera House because we didn't want anything overly fancy. This was one of the only places we could get in by the time we thought to make reservations. Our server was great, and very attentive. The food, however, was mostly lousy. We did enjoy the pretzel appetizer, and the beer was pretty good. My daughter's salad was very good. Fish tacos weren't so good. There was very little fish on them, and it was overcooked and overly fishy tasting. Chicken fajitas were ok. The guacamole was awful. It had clearly been scooped ahead into little
serving cups, and was all brown on the surface. It had no taste really at all. My 11 year old son had a burger. He LOVES burgers, but he wouldn't eat it. So, I took a bite thinking he was being picky (despite not really enjoying my own meal, because I figured...how bad could a burger be?), and it was truly awful. It was over-ground mushy meat, and seemed to have been set on fire. The outside was charred black, and just tasted awful. I will say, we asked for it medium, and somehow it was still pink in the middle. I would go back for a drink and the pretzels maybe, but would never eat a meal there again.
Food was very good and the service was on point. The waiter was very attentive amd would come by before I could even look around for her to ask for something. The food was well seasoned and cooked I had no complaints. Oh and by the way... I fell in love with the southwest eggroll appetizer it was amazing...
I'd definitely go back to Rock Bottom! My friend and I met here before we attended a show at The Wilbur, and the location couldn't have been more convenient. Our server was very friendly and attentive, and the drinks are a great value, especially for their own brews. The food is decently portioned and reasonable, with lots of different options. This menu truly has "something for everyone". They also list calories on their menu which I love, as I track mine daily. The fireman's burger was delicious and not as spicy as it sounds (at least for me). I think this may be my new go to when heading to the Theater District!
The food was good, I ordered a salad with steak, and dressing on the side, however, it came with dressing on it, and dressing on the side, and they were two different dressings. The dressing on the salad was not what I ordered, but still very good. The services was excellent, and the waiter very nice.
