Great place to grab a bite before hitting the theater. Very fast service - prompt and attentive. Food is mediocre.

The front desk got totally mixed up about my reservation. As a result, my friend waited 10 minutes at an inside table, because they had seated her and cancelled my reservation, just moments before I arrived. Finally, I called her, and she came outside to sit with me. That being said, our server was great, and my burger was perfectly fine. My friend liked her sandwich and onion rings, too.
The meals are much more pricey than I remember, and although they are good, they are nothing special.

We visited Rock Bottom on 16th St after the Denver Zombie Crawl. Although the place was full and very busy the service and food were great, I would definitely return and recommend this restaurant to my friend for casual or formal dinner!!!

Used Open Table on a busy Friday night for our pre theatre Frozen dinner to make reservation at Rock Bottom. We were seated almost immediately with 2 adults and 3 kids. I let our server know we were there for our pre-Frozen dinner. She did a fantastic job, from getting my beer to serving the kids meals. Lastly, a very prompt check, and we were on our way. Well deserved gratuity!

We come here on and off. I was unable to make my review on the reservation the corresponds to the visit however I will do it here on a prior visit. We made a last minute reservation as we walked over from our building which is very close for 'now' and there were reservations avaible all night on open table. When we arrived there was a wait. Instead of honoring the reservation they wanted to add us to the 30 plus minute waitlist. Explanation was that they did not have the seating available. If this is the case they should not be accepting reservations when they don't have the seating. Beware.

Food was mediocre at best. We ordered apps, salads, and dinner. Everything came out all at once. Very poorly timed. It didn't at all have a brewery feeling. If you like chain restaurants, disguised as something else, then you'll love it.

Do not go there!
They have these little computer gadgets on your table that kids can "play" with that end up costing you $$$ unbeknownst to you!!! They do not require "approval" from an adult, they just let kids play with the device and BAM you are hit with a bill for it at the end of the night.
There oughta be a law prohibiting this - they should require CONSENT for this. Otherwise someone who has no idea about what this device does (me!) gets screwed big time!

A very pleasant dining experience! Great food! However, I was a little disappointed; I let the restaurant know we were celebrating my husband's birthday, I was told they'd do it up right. Well, no Happy Birthday, no comp deserts, no nothing. We had a great time nonetheless!

It's a great place for a drink, but if you're looking to have a substantial dinner… I might consider somewhere else. Brittany the bartender was great, and made spot on recommendations. It was definitely more of a college crowd/tourist crowd. I usually like to pursue a more local feel, but I was not disappointed with what we experienced.

Always love the Rock Bottom. Great beer and the food is usually dependable ... which it was this time with the exception of the French fries which were limp and barely warm. Otherwise, the rest of the food and the service were great!

I've been going to The Rock Bottom Denver before shows and concerts for many years. It has almost always been a pleasure with the service friendly and food good. Our last visit was excellent. Our server, Michael, was extremely friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the experience a great deal.

Nice microbrewery in downtown Denver. The Cajun fish tacos were great. The beer was outstanding. I strongly recommend to try the Liquid Sun, a Belgian style beer. Very friendly server. Overall a great experience.

The tablets at the table are a complete fail. We pushed the button for service (our card would not read) and it took ages for our waitress to return. Several other employees zoomed past (eyes sliding to the flashing red light and away quickly); ignored our pleas for help.
When the waitress finally came back she apologized and said, "I thought these things were working."
