Rock Bottom Brewery Restaurant - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
The atmosphere is cozy but could use a little facelift. The hostess walked us to our table, inside when I request outside, placed the menus down and walked away without a word. I ordered the side of cheddar mash which was extremely dry. My chicken was fantastic, but without a good side left not fully satisfied.
The overall experience was excellent. The only thing I would suggest is the restaurant appears to need some updating. A couple updates here and there and I will give it full stars across the board! Thanks again and look forward to a return dinner in the near future.
My husband and I have eaten here several times and food and service was wonderful.
This time we took my grandmother. We bragged about how wonderful it was, only to be disappointment with the service. It was absolutely terrible. I was out of a drink for well over 10 minutes. After seeing many servers walk past I finally stopped the hostess and asked if she could find our waitress. She came back and asked what we needed. THE HOSTESS brought me a refill and brought me sauce for my pizza. Our waitress didn't even come back to the table after that for another 5 minutes or more. I should have tipped the hostess at the front desk instead.
Food was great as usual.
This was my first time at Rock Bottom and it was great. I could tell our server was very busy but she still took really good care of us and made sure our drinks were always full. I ordered the makers mark burger and it was amazing. I got the fruit as my side which could have been a little bigger in portion and fresher. But overall it was an amazing experience and meal!
We had a reservation at 5:45. We arrived 25 minutes early and told the hostess we were there early. We were told that they probably wouldn't have our table available until close to our reservation time, but people were coming in off the street and getting seated before us. We went back up to the hostess at 5:45 to enquire, and were immediately seated. It took 15 minutes before anyone came to take a drink order and 20 minutes before our drinks arrived at the table. My date was furious and wanted to leave. Definitely didn't leave a good memory for our date.
We had a group of 6, ordered a pizza, wings, a steak, calamari, and lobster and shrimp quesadillas. Everyone was pleased with their food. The drinks were a bit pricy ($10+ each for the cucumber lime margarita and for a martini) but were good. Service was great, and the food came out quick. We stopped on the way to a concert and were out of there in plenty of time to walk to Taft theater even though we only budgeted an hour and 15 minutes. I'd go back.
I met two friends for Happy Hour and dinner and we had a great time! We have met at Rock Bottom several times and the food and service are excellent. Our server was patient, but attentive and checked back with us often, but did not rush us. I am a member of the RBRewards program and I used my birthday coupon to receive a free entree with the purchase of an entree. Great value!!
I went with the lobster and shrimp tacos, but wish I would have stuck with my first choice of the burger and chili, for the same money. There just wasn't much to what I had.
Overall Rock Bottom is a wonderful option for dining down near the downtown square and having the Open Table reservation option is wonderful! I did miss my raspberry wheat that was off the menu for a time, but they have many other options available.
The service was terrific as always
It was really busy at 5:15 on Saturday. The service was excellent and our server made good recommendations on their beers and that we should only order a half size nachos (it was plenty for 2 of us). Did not order entrees. The location on Fountain Square is really convenient to downtown hotels.
Everyone was very pleased with their meals. Outstanding service and menus. My pulled pork was a little 'old' and not as hot as the plate it was served on. There are better pulled pork sandwiches in town. You may want to look around, Butterby's for one and several other's. All in all I will be back, but not for the pulled pork. Thanks for the outstanding service.
Restaurant wasn't really busy but it took almost 40 minutes to get our food. A good portion of our order was incorrect and part of mine was no longer available. They didn't tell me this, just replaced it with something else and only let me know after I asked two different people where my cheddar mashed potatoes were. Had to ask for ranch dressing four times before I actually got any. Whole place felt very dirty. Wouldn't recommend.
I met a friend to have a few drinks and a bite to eat. We had a wonderful time! Our server was attentive and checked back with us regularly. The happy hour specials were amazing and a great value. We enjoyed the location on Fountain Square - which provided ample opportunities for people watching. We have met here before and will do so again.
My favorite waitress Gloria, is awesome. Steve, the manager is always working, making sure the place looks great and is clean and friendly. Hi goal always seems to be what is good for the company. Garrett is also amazing. We have always had a visit from them when we eat there, which is often.
It is my favorite restaurant as a result of the atmosphere and attention to detail of the managers that are there.
I visited the Rock Bottom Brewery expecting good food and service. The waiter struggled , not sure if he was new or not. Very slow to check on us. Food was not what was expected at all , steaks were of poor cut and the potatoes said cheese potatoes and they were not. Had to send one plate back because it was dirty .
Not a good experience
We loved the Colorado location and this one didn't disappoint. Cajun chicken pasta and the bourbon glazed salmon were excellent. We were seated immediately with our reservation and service was great. We didn't drink beer this time but it's normally excellent. Highly recommend!
My husband steak was way overcooked, so it took a while to get our servers attention to send it back. By time they brought him a new one everyone else was finished with their meals. For the amount of people that were in the restaurant and the amount of open tables we saw our server way to little. Disappointing
