We are Rock Bottom regulars. This time we sat in the dining room right by the window. So not only did we have terrific food and beer, we got to people watch the whole time.
My husband and I have dined here several times, now. Last time was busier than other nights, and I think our server was just trying to keep up. She came to our table a few times to take orders, etc., but obviously in a hurry. When she brought our food, she plopped it on our table without a word. Also, our table was near the order pick-up, which was not conducive to a quiet conversation, nor appetizing, to look at all the spilled food in the floor. Usually our experience there is much better.
We like this restaurant and have always had good experiences in the past. Although last Friday was not our best experience (food slow to come out, food was not ready all at the same time, some food was just warm), everyone can have an off night and we will likely dine there again.
We went to Rock Bottom for drinks and appetizers before a theater show. We had reservations for 6:00 pm with the show at 7:30. We notified our server that we had plans to go to the show at 7:30. We ordered nachos and wings within minutes of sitting down but did not get our food until after 7:00. We followed up with the waiter several times about our need to get to the show by 7:30, and his response was that he would check for our food. It was very frustrating, particularly while we watched other diners come and go while we waited for our food.
Excellent wait staff that worked together. We ran out of ketchup at our table and a second waitress noticed while passing by. Without us asking, our waiter showed up in less than 30 seconds with a new bottle. Food was great and flavorful - I had the 2AM burger cooked perfectly. The family also had a grilled chicken salad and a bacon burger. Everything was to order and quick.
very good waiter!!
we like the location next to the orpheum
It's been a year since our last visit that was also just ok. The service was not the best and the cleanliness was something to be desired. I enjoy a smiling staff and a clean non sticky table. Possibly needs a quick makeover to rejuvinate the ambiance and pep the place up a bit more. The food was good, but nothing special. It was a week night and it was busy- so they are doing something right!
Food was excellent. We appreciated the free appetizer given with our theater tickets.
Good option for pre-theater dinner. Nice menu variety; something for everyone. Food was tasty. Service was good.
The food was delicious. Our waiter was very well informed about the craft brews available on site. He was able to answer complex questions that I had about different beers and ales. I'll not that we only came for appetizers and ales. Ordered the nachos and the Buffalo wings. The buffalo sauce was perfect for the average person. Not too sour and not too spicy. The nachos were more than enough for two people. They came with homemade salsa, guacamole and sour cream. Topped with melted cheeses and mixed with seasonings and other quality ingredients. We had kolsch, wheat ale and India pale ale. They were well crafted brews. Next time we have an opportunity to eat in downtown, we will definitely come back to the Rock Bottom Brewery.
It was overall pretty good however two people ordered specialty drinks that the sever came back and said they were out of so that was disappointing. The food was very good! We had burgers, shrimp and lobster enchiladas, Jambalaya, soup, tacos all were very good!
We rarely eat out so this was a great treat! The steak was tender, the service amazing, and all compliments to our meal were perfect. Topped off with cheesecake to go, we could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you.
We had a great time, good meal, great service. A good value and right next door to the venue we were attending.
Food was fine, nothing special.
The server was "inattentive" at best. Drink and food orders were incorrect, but when the wine was delivered the server's fingers were inside the glasses as they were distributed.
Reserved a table here before the Robert Plant concert. Had a great time, decent(although not unique)sports bar food, the service was good, the beer was great and the bill didn’t break the budget. Overall a good experience and we would go back when attending another event at the Orpheum Theater but wouldn’t drive downtown Minneapolis just to eat here.
Great service, great food/drinks and handsome waiter. Prompt service to get us out in time to the concert.
Nachos were probably one of the best I've ever had. Just right on all the ingredients.
Always a good experience dinning in here. My friends drove 5 hours to spend the evening with me and I recommended rock bottom. We spent time laughing eating apps and drinking cocktails. Although it was busy you managed to get us in even earlier than our reservation time. And our food/drink was never longer then 10 minutes. Another one for the books. Until next time keep doin what ya guys do! Because you're defiently doing it right.
Things were quite good, although the servers should be trained to automatically remove dirty glasses, silverware and plates from the table each time they pass by their tables.
Food was excellent, as always, but we had a new server and she made several mistakes.
We are regulars at Rock Bottom. The beer is terrific and we love the staff. All are super friendly and great at their jobs. This was my first time trying the Chicken Fried Chicken. Wow, what a tasty, comfort food dish! It's a good sized serving so you could probably take some home with you. My husband decided to eat his burger and then took over my plate. It was that good.
I have been coming to Rock Bottom for 7 years and I was so shocked at the service I received. I give my daughter a birthday party there every year for the last 5 years. I spend over 200 each year for these birthday parties and this time was terrible. The service was terrible. The waitress was not professional at all. I had to ask for some tea 5 times and then she never come back to table to see if we needed anything, she was just terrible. She would not take the time to see what we actually wanted, shoot it took 20 minutes after we sat down for her to come to tablea to give us water. I'm planning a Graduation party for my daughter for June 7th but now I'm not sure if I want to have it at Rock Bottom. I will be spending over 800 dollars and I want A class service.
Food was great. Our daughter loved the Mac and cheese. Service was also very good.
Great place to watch the super bowl
Super Bowl Fun! Had a great time!
Pretty decent meal and good service-especially since it was the weekend of the superbowl. It helped that I made reservations.
Service was a little slow, but it is super bowl week - so you have to give a little slack. Good welcoming atmosphere
Trip downtown for Super Bowl activities on Nicollet. This was a great location for dinner. Had reservations. No wait and great service. Enjoyed local craft beers and nachos and tacos.
Good food, good service and excellent location. If you're downtown for an event you could do a lot worse for yourself if you're also looking for a fun dining experience.
It took over an hour to get our food, was cold when arrived and missing our fries and dressing. They said it was slow due to kitchen back up. Very frustrating...
We had 12:00 reservations before our tickets to a 2:00 show. We waited for well over an hour and never got our food. Our waiter only stopped by our table once in that time to fill waters, but didn’t mention anything about the wait. We had to search him out two additional times to check on the progress. Ended up leaving so we could grab something quickly at the coffee shop to eat before the show started. This was our first experience at Rock Bottom and we were incredibly disappointed. We won’t be returning.
My previous experience was less than stellar, but decided to try again. Glad I did. Food was good. Our server, Mike, did an awesome job. Very attentive, professional but not intrusive. Yup, all was good!
Met friends before a Timberwolves game. We had very good service and the food was good. We were able to carry on a good conversation.
Great beer, good food, fun atmosphere. Their Mac and Cheese is comfort food extraordinaire !
Food was pretty good. Service was poor. The waiter was very involved with pleasing a table of women and forgot to even put our appetizer order in. He ended up comping it and bringing it out after the entrees, but it was still frustrating. A large piece of what looked like onion was stuck to the inside of my water glass and my wife’s glass of wine had a fruit fly in it. We’ve been here numerous times and usually don’t have an issue. The experience wasn’t bad enough that we’d never come back but we might try out another restaurant as a pre-Orpheum dinner destination.
Food and service were excellent tho it was a bit chilly as we were seated directly next to the window [post-matinee dinner]
My grandsons and I had dinner after seeing Phantom of the Opera at the Rock Bottom Brewry. Our food was delicious but our waiter was outstanding!! We had a fabulous time and will be back!
The brews were fantastic! I like the pale ales, and my spouse prefers beer he can chew (my words, not his). Both of us found brews we liked. We'll be back for more pretzel chicken. The only downside was the veggies were cooked to mush and were not appetizing, and the server was ok but not interactive. The online reservation was so easy, and we were seated right away. This was a great start to a wonderful night.
I wished they had more food options for dairy and gluten free restrictions
