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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Took my friend there for her first visit while she was in from out of town, we indulged with some great beers brewed on premises, they let us try samples to find ones that fit our tastes. We were able to choose from a great menu with tons of variety, everything sounded and looked delicious. We were very satisfied with the quantity and quality of the food. We were a smaller group and were able to be seated in a somewhat secluded nook in the back which made it very easy for us to hear each other and when we were being loud we were not disrupting too many people. We had a wonderful view of the frozen river and the snow falling outside from where we were seated and while we were somewhat particular with our orders and our manners, our waitress was good humored and had a nice attitude. She did a good job with a rambunctious table.

I used to love Rock Bottom. The service has really gone downhill. We waited almost 25 minutes for water and drinks. Some of our food was lukewarm, not really hot. This was the second time we were disappointed. Not like it used to be. Service used to be great and the food was hot and tasted great.

Went for dinner prior to holiday concert. Seated late even though tables were open and had reservation. Ordered a martini which was only half full in martini glass. Made the mistake of ordering steak and shrimp. Shrimp never came until meal was done and steak was cooked very well done when ordered medium. My girlfriend ordered a chicken dish with vegetables which were all cold when they arrived. We had no time to send anything back so we ate what we could and left. The best part of the entire meal was salad and soup we ordered. Will never go back.

We've gone to Rock Bottom for NYE the last 4 years. Unfortunately we will not be returning next year. It was not very busy while we were there, yet our service was very sub par. Accuracy was good, but zero attentiveness. (I've been a server for many years, so I can appreciate nuances, but not neglect). Our order was delivered by another server, incorrect, and part of it was missing.

Parking was great and free due to the cold on New Years Eve. I would have given 5 stars for food but my mashed potatoes were served cold. Otherwise the steak was delicious and our server was great.

The light above our table 2 of the 3 lightbulbs were out, made it very dark and difficult to see the menu. It just made us feel like we were sitting in the dark. My food came out cold and our service was just ok.
