Sabrina was our server. She could not clear a plate or a glass to save her life. Just not very pleasant in general. Had she been a little more pleasant the food may have tasted better?

We sat outside on the patio over looking the river. It was very nice, not too loud or crowded.

The food and service were good. Noise level was to be expected but we were still able to have a good conversation

This was the worst experience we’ve ever had at a restaurant. The service was absolutely horrible!! We had reservations and they did seat us right away and than it went down hill from there. It took 45 mins before we were served our drinks. Than they brought out 1 out of the 4 entree’s before we ever got our appetizer. The appetizer came out 10 mins later and than another 20 mins before the other 3 entree’s came out. Not once did anyone offer up an apology or offer to take money off of our bill even after we complained.

The food is always great. I love the tacos. I brought five people who had never been to Rock Bottom before and they all enjoyed their meal very much - each had something different.

WE go to Rock Bottom a lot. Before every concert, etc. The food is always good and the service is usually very good. But for some reason our server was not very attentive even though we told her we had a concert to go to. Hadd to ask twice for check, Didn't bring all of our food out together, just slow and maybe she was busy. But when you tell someone you have to be out of there at a specific time and we got there 1 1/2 hours before the show, she should have paid better attention. Of course that is one time, but just wanted to let someone know. Will still go there.

Not sure why, but on a Friday night, when you would expect a crowd, the service was slow. The bar and getting drinks was very slow. The food arrived almost the same time the drinks did. Not sure why the bar or drinks were so slow. But overall a nice place and good food for value.

The food, server, and the beer were all very good. There were a few tables who were very loud which was slightly annoying; it's totally fine that things can get loud when people are out and having fun but it got to the point where we had trouble hearing our server. Other than that, our only major complaint was the parking situation; apparently there was some kind of event going on downtown so the parking lot attached to Rock Bottom was charging $20 to park there, even if you were there to eat and not to go to the event. We definitely understand the need to charge event parking but the River Bank Plaza parking page says it's 50 cents to park if you eat at Rock Bottom and special event rates are posted. We assumed that it would be 50 cents regardless of an event but apparently not. Not the end of the world as luckily we're familiar with the downtown area and were able to find other parking, but it may benefit Rock Bottom to clarify the parking situation on their website or their reservation confirmations.

This was one of many trips here, and we always enjoy it. Usually we go after an event downtown, but going during the day after my son's graduation was different.

I haven't been here in ages because they weren't very gluten free friendly. They now have a separate menu and can make items separate from everything else. They can even toast the GF hamburger bun separately. The burger was delicious!

We had dinner before going to a show at the Riverside - our server was incredibly efficient, she was attentive and kept checking on us. Our food was delivered in a timely manner and was delicious.

My wife and I found beers we liked. I tend toward IPA's, and she toward sours or wheat beers. My brother and his wife didn't find anything that suited them. We were both a little confused about an IPA on the menu with an IBU of 16. IPAs are usually way (way) higher. Nice atmosphere.

Our food came very quickly even though they were extremely busy. However our server was very unattentive and when we asked for our bill she slapped it on the table and walked away. How rude. We had asked her very nicely if we could please have our bill.

We would prob. Not return. The food was mediocre at best and lunch was over $100 for 3 kids meals and 3 adult meals ( 1 adult had a beer). The portions were not large- which was fine for lunch but, may have been too small for a dinner

They called at 3:30pm and said something happened, and they were not going to be open, so they cancelled my 5:15pm reservation. So I never got to eat there.

The beer is great! Our server was attentive and did a great job. The food was so so. Burgers are not that exciting and the fries are not to my liking. They are pretty thick and not well cooked. I'd go back for the beer and maybe appetizers, but the main dishes that we had were not all that.

It was actually my son and his girlfriend that went to the restaurant. They said the food was very good.
Although the restaurant was not very busy at 7:00, the waitress was indifferent to whether or not they were there and when they were finished with their meal she did not ask if they wanted anything else they were just presented with the bill.
