Another excellent meal at RB. Tried the nachos with chicken and guacamole. HUGE portion and quite good. Firecracker shrimp was also excellent. Chickend tacos on the light menu we're also very nice. As always, solid beer options.
Great time as always at the Rock Bottom Brewery. The food was delicious and our server, Taylor, was outstanding - made our whole experience just the best!!!!
Went to dinner before a concert. Good variety on the menu and nice stiff drinks.
Great place! Staff was super helpful and friendly. Food was OUTSTANDING!!! Portions were huge. We split the pretzel chicken and still had some left over... but we did start with chicken nachos (huge and delicious) Service was fast
Great location, awesome menu, food was fresh and prepared perfectly. Service was on point and prices were reasonable. Highly recommend!
Decent food. Beer is okay for in house beer. Service was good, waiters and waitresses were both very attentive and aware when we were ready to order. I've had better food here before but this time it was just okay...
We were in town for a concert at the Pabst, and Rock Bottom was an excellent choice for a great meal and convenience.
Fantastic service! I wish I remembered her name. Our table was ready when we arrived. All of our food was great and came out as ordered. We were sat at a table toward the back which we preferred because it’s not as loud as near the bar.
We’ll be back!
The beer is consistently good. What a shame it's so dark, old, and almost grungy. It needs a new look or location, one where there's bright colors and lights. In the summer, you can't beat the patio along the river though.
I think the 1950's supper club motif is WAY out of date though. It' like it's an anachronism, an old dog that hangs in there but is dying.
The wait staff is always excellent. Thanks to MSOE and Maquette.
The bathrooms need a serious retrofitting. They've always been dark and dank and foul-smelling. It doesn't cost that much to start over - paint, lights, and flooring.
If you want today's craft brew crowd, Rock Bottom needs to rethink its look. I'd hate to see it leave the river, but someone needs to explore a site where they can build, have plenty of free parking, and have a brighter decor.
Great place to eat and close to MSO and REP show venues.
Arrived early, was told me had to wait an additional 20 mins past the time we reserved. The food on some plates was cold when it shouldn’t have been. The hostess staff was beyond rude.
Rock Bottom accommodated our large group and communicated well to prearrange with their staff. We even had our own dining room. The servers were friendly, fantastic keeping up with our drinks and informed us of their food favorites on the menu too. Great selection of menu items to meet every taste/need. Good location in downtown Milwaukee. A big thumbs up overall!!
We had a reservation for 7 and there was no wait. The staff was friendly, the beer was good, and the food was tasty. All 7 of us enjoyed the evening.
Great food and beverage experience, as to be expected. Went for supper and a couple of cocktails before seeing a show. It definitely was "smart" to have a dinner reservation to avoid the wait and to otherwise give ourselves enough time. Rock Bottom tends to be a notch above "bar food" fare, and our most recent experience here confirmed that!
Good food, steak at right price and cooked very well. Good selection of beers. Informal ambient, friendly.
Restaurant was conveniently located near the theater.
Food was excellent. Service wasn't that great. Waitress took a long time to bring our drinks and never refilled our waters.
The Waldorf Chicken salad got two thumbs up from 2 diners, however 2 other diners were disappointed with their meals. The chicken avacado sandwich and burger were luke-warm and mashed potatoes were cold on both plates. Our server was HORRIBLE. Very unfriendly, she treated us like she didn't want to be there. Sadly, I do not think we will be returning any time soon.
Was great! Awesome service
We typically use this place when we have a show to go to in the area. Always have had good luck on the good and service.
Went for my wifes birthday-waited a very long time for food considering the place was empty- only to have all four meals ice cold- their response was "would you like us to take it back and heat it up?" Worst 200 bucks i ever spent!
Good food and good service in a nice place. Nothing spectacular but we would definitely eat here again.
Food was good, didn't have to wait long for our meal. Ball park pretzel appetizer was awesome.
Excellent spot for dinner before a show at the Riverside. A close walk from the parking structure and around the corner from the venue. The menu has a wide variety and everything is worth a try. The fish fry is excellent and if you are looking for a great selection of beers you won't be disappointed. The carrot cake is out of this world and HUGE. Our group of three shared one slice and weren't able to finish it!
Our post-show meal was delicious. The service was from Sydney was excellent and while the Texas Fire Ribeye was perfectly seasoned, it was probably the fattiest ribeye cut I've ever had. The bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers were da bomb. We'll be back in a few weeks to enjoy another meal.
I felt very uncomfortable at this restaurant. There was a very violent fight between two drunk young men which resulted with the window smashing and the police arriving. This made me want to leave the restaurant due to how uncomfortable I felt. I also had reservations for 7:45 and didn’t get my table until 8:05. If I have reservations for 7:45 I would assume that there is a table ready for me at that time, not twenty minutes past that. Very terrible first experience.
Fun and good food. Very busy on the weekend but we got in quickly with our reservation.
There was only one server and it took 20-30 minutes to even get our drinks. We were there at 4:00 on a Friday. Our server said she had our table on one side of the restaurant and all her other tables in the opposite side of the restaurant. Our kids were getting inpatient.
Friendly staff, good with suggestions. Fairly large portions. Good beer made on premises.
First time here, I was recommended this place by a friend. Food was great! Ambiance was classy but not too over the top which is great. The beer selection is awesome. We ordered the steak, burger and wings all 3 dishes were delicious. Not a single complaint about the restaurant.
Went here before a concert while visiting Milwaukee. Good beer and pretty good food
Great service, good food, good drinks!
There are always a lot of really good options on the menu. It really helps especially when you have a lot of different people that you were trying to please. Rock-bottom seems to do a great job with everything that they do.
It was lovely our server was wonderful
We had a nice server and enjoyed the food here!
My husband and my dinner were perfect 👌- mine especially! The Cajun fish tacos 🌮 were the BEST! “Rock Bottom” is our restaurant before our 8pm shows, whether it’s at the Pabst or Riverside. Thank you!
Great ambiance and location and the food was very good! Was extremely close to our concert location and the service was wonderful! I would definitely recommend this to friends!
We had a great experience. Terrific location for dinner before going to the Pabst for a performance.
We arrived at 8:32pm for an 8:30pm reservation for 12. We had to wait 10 minutes for them to "push some tables together" for us. Not sure why wehad a reservation if they weren't prepared for us?? Our group was in town for a work event over the weekend. Our team was celebrating a successful 2017, as well as our holiday gift exchange. We were seated in a room by the river and had the room pretty much to ourselves. Food and service was good, the room however was way too warm. We had to open the side door a couple of times to cool off!
Food came out quickly, was hot and tasty. Service was great. We'll be back.
We were pleasantly surprised by the outstanding service we received for a group of 9 on a busy Wednesday night. Previous reviews made me a little nervous but it was a great choice. Julia provided great service for a group that ordered 7 different choices. We started with a order of Nachos which sere excellent. Everything was delicious. I would definitely bring a group here again.
