The beer selection seemed to be off a little and the service was a bit slow. My ribs were fairly dry. I like the place but this wasn’t a great visit.

Food took forever to come out, and our server just seemed like he hated his job. Completely messed up my husbands order. Once we did get food, it was okay. Nothing to write home about. Prob better for just happy hour or drinks and apps.

We love Rock Bottom Brewery! The food is always fantastic as well as the brews! This is a favorite place of ours. We chose to sit outside with our 2 children and we arrived early for our reservation and they were still able to accommodate us. It seemed they were a bit under staffed because were were not greeted for at least 10 mins but when Katie noticed she quickly took over our table and she was wonderful. We had a great time!

2 hours later, our order was finally right. Server was absolutely unprepared, kept complaining it was her first day and she didn’t know what to do. Where do we start here? Drink glass came to the table cracked. Food took an hour to come out because the kitchen was short-staffed only to come out completely incorrect. We kept having food for other tables sent to our table because no one was organized. It got to be a running joke with the other patrons to the point that we all would just raise our hands on the patio when staff would come out with an order. Manager came out multiple times very spastically apologizing for their mistakes to the point that he said he had took over in the kitchen. Kept complaining about staff either calling out sick or being in car crashes as an excuse for the unprofessionalism. Finally.... at 9pm (after being sat at 7pm) our orders were out. Manager made it right at the end however, this will be the last time we dine at Rock Bottom due to the disorganized and unprofessional atmosphere.

The was the worst meal I have had in awhile. My sister ordered chicken tenders with fries. I ordered the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and upgraded a side to the mac and cheese. The chicken-- both dishes-- was rubbery and flavorless. To the point we did not even remotely finish our meal. The macaroni and cheese was SO BLAND. The shaved parmesan cheese on top was the best part of that dish. The mashed potatoes were actually pretty good. Overall, this was a horribly disappointing meal.

Surprisingly the waitress never asked how we liked our meal. She simply asked if we were ready for the check.

It was a great experience. It was my first time there and I was completely satisfied! We had reservations and we walked in and they took us right to our table. The waiter was fantastic. His name was Matt. The food was fantastic! We will definitely be visiting again soon!

We really like Rock Bottom and decided to go there for an early group dinner on New Year's Eve. This visit was not pleasant. The server, although polite, was inattentive at best. It was obvious that he did not want to be there. We waited for quite some time to place our drink order and when the other couples showed up, I had to remind the waiter to take their drink orders. In addition, they were out of an appetizer that we ordered but we didn't find out until after the other appetizers were delivered when we asked our waiter about the missing food. His reply was "didn't he tell you?" I am not sure who the "he" was he was referring to as we only had the one waiter. Anyway, I will go back as in general, it's a good spot. We simply had a waiter that really needs to find a new career.

Our server, who I will not name, was obviously not thrilled to be working at 6pm on New Year Ever, but front end Manager, PHIL, ROCKSTAR PHIL, more than made up for the lack of smiles, service or interest in our time at Rock Bottom....He saved the night!! Food was excellent!

Met some friends here on a Saturday night. Great food, and good variety. We are all three eating healthy, and we had no problem finding a good selection. Beers are great! It’s a bit noisy, but not as bad as you would expect given that it is a brew pub.

The place overall was great. There was a little confusion as to where to go once you’re inside. People seemed to walk in and find their table, then had to be redirected back to the front. The food was good, took our waiter a little time to come back to the table with our drinks after we ordered, but he was very apologetic. It was really busy and crowded, lots of children as well. Overall good food, good drinks, live sports !

Our waiter was great and very apologetic. The kitchen needs A LOT of help. They messed our order up three times. After we asked for it to be corrected the first time, all they did was scrap items off and send it back.
