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.

My friend and I were celebrating our birthday. The restaurant has a fun ambiance, good food, and our server, Katie, was excellent.

Dined here on a Saturday night after a matinee. We were seated quickly and the place was lively. Food was exceptional! Had mac & cheese and it was the best ever.

Everything was just ok...from the service to the food to the beer--thought there would be more beer options.
Will not return.

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 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

Met a friend here when I was in town for the day. Super easy to get her from the Redline L stop. Ironically it was happy hour so great value for a beer, appetizer and a meal. Would def come here again!

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!
