The only reason u didn't give five stars was because it was very loud and cramped and service was a tad slow (but great people!) The food was awesome!

Reservation was easily made and on time for seating. Bar area was busy, but not over crowded, as some places can be on a Saturday night. Service was great. Food and beer were excellent too. They have a rooftop beer garden, which was not open due to the cold weather, but looked like it would be a neat spot to visit on a summers night.

Was able to make a reservation on the fly and only a few hours in advance just as my family and I came into town. Did a great job fitting in a table for 6 and 2 kids with little fuss. Very impressed!

Not as good as other Rock Bottom locations! We had very poor service. My hamburger was burnt and never even brought me the beer I ordered. Too many better places in the area. Don't waste your time.

The food was great but our waiter definitely effected our dinner in a negative way. Very slow service, did not know the menu at all and ruined our dessert. Very disappointment.

My husband and sons like the variety of beer choices available, especially the Wicked Elf during the holiday season. My husband was disappointed that they took the Cuban sandwich off the menu. We only went for drinks this time.

The restaurant was so loud that no one at our table could hear anyone speaking. We asked to be moved to the other side of the restaurant (which was more than half-empty) but the hostess said she could not move us. Our waitress must have been employed at Dick's Last Resort before working at Rock Bottom because she brought a hearty serving of snark and inattentiveness to our table. Three times I had to go looking for her. It was a less than nice meal.

My dish, Chicken Fried Chicken, was extremely salty; nearly inedible. I️ should have sent it back but we were in a hurry. Our other dishes were average. The place was cold. There was no hot water in the men’s restroom. Very unlikely to return.

Our service was horrible !!! Our waitress was rarely seen....we usually had to flag down someone else to ask for basic service then our waitress would appear .... She may be the exception ....the other served seemed attentive abs energetic....ours sucked....so we spoke with the only toll we had asset trying to discuss it with the manager who seemed to busy, by leaving no tip...paid cash exactly to the penny....hope she gets the message

I chose this place for a co-worker "drinks and get to know each other". We were seated quickly, the service was good, the food was good and the drinks were as well. No complaints here. I might add that I appreciate the ease of making a reservation for 10. That was the tie breaker between which place to choose and you guys won simply because it was easy to make a reservation. Will definitely be back in the future.

Have eaten here many, many times. Menu is varied and can handle a wide range of family desires. Wait staff service can be so-so, as was the case for Sunday lunch this weekend. Other times, service has been fine.

One challenge is that you have to watch your bill. I've frequently received e-mailed two-for-one specials, %off options. For Sundays in football season, bloody marys, for example, are listed as $5 for anyone in the bar (no coupons needed). I was charged the usual price of $9.99 instead. In all cases, I've been able to iron out the bill easily, but it wouldn't have happened without my checking. So, food is good, but keep track of your bill.

We visited both Thursday night and Saturday night and service was awesome both nights, but especially good on Saturday night (Katie was our service I believe!). We visit Rock Bottom Brewery every time we come to Chicago and will be back in January. It is quite loud but its great to watch sporting events, taste or drink beer, and the food is great!

Disappointed. Pre- marathon tradition usually excellent food. It was very subpar. Pretzels were hard as rocks. Chicken Mac was dry, not creamy at all. Chicken sandwich was rubbery. We will be creating a new tradition somewhere else from here on out. Will not go back & wouldn’t recommend it.
