                        The food is awful. This used to be a great downtown Portland location to eat. We did not finish our meal it was that bad. Service was great, but until the food improves or news of a new chef airs, we will not be back again

                        It's a fun place to hang with the girls (friends) after work, grab an ice cold Raspberry (F) drink. However, the food is a tad bit greasy and this is not a place I'd take a family too. Quite loud and crowded.

                        Great place for a nice handcrafted Brew made on site. The "Wheat" is my personal favorite. Friendly staff, great food. Pool tables offered upstairs as well as TV's, also offers a 21 and older Bar. Don't forget to try the Chicken Genevesse Pasta and the Carrot Cake is a must for desert.

                        I've never been a fan of this place but it had been years since I ate here and years ago I remember it being bad. A friend had a gift card so we ate there yesterday. Not only was it cold and dreary in the place, but the chairs have to be the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat in. The food was worse than I remember. My burger was awful and very small. It seriously reminded me of dennys. No joke. There were 4 people in our party and every single entree horrible. My friend got the fish taco's (should have known better) and they tasted soooooo fishy it was unedible. I wouldn't be surprised with our economy, and how bad the food is that Rock Bottom goes under. It wouldn't surprise me at all. The place was like a ghost town. The service was poor as well.

                        A few friends and I went on a slow Tuesday night and sat outside. Our waiter was horrible! He forgot our food order and never even acknowldged it. We just didn't eat. He also forgot a straw for my friend when we first arrived that she needed because she'd recently had jaw surgery. We had to get it ourself! I was so disgusted that when we left I left a note on the "tip" line on the bill- "Thanks for the food and the straw!" I won't be back anytime soon!

                        Pros: Downtown location

                        Cons: Pricey, incompetent staff, loud

                        .

                        I went to Rock Bottom for a private party upstairs and just had drinks and one appetizer. The drinks were 50% water and a splash of alcohol. I had one lemon drop and one vodka and soda. Neither you could really taste the alcohol. Even my friends beer tasted like water! He refused to drink it and made them poor another one. I asked the waitress about my drinks and she asked if I wanted a double. No, I want my original drink to taste like it has alcohol in it! These drinks are not cheap! The service was also slow, I think they had one waitress for the whole upstairs; that is 3 separate large parties to work. We were always looking around for her.
                        The last time I was there was several years ago and I don't recall the drinks being watered down, so apparently they must be trying to save some money.

                        We have tried twice to schedule two large parties at Rock Bottom-both times we have had to switch locations due to their ongoing lack of accomodation. They want to charge outrageous prices for minimum purchases (anywhere between $900-$1,800.00) on top of that if you want to rent out the upstairs room (which is actually the best place to put a large party in their crowded establishment) you have to tack on an extra $50 an hour! It's really unfortunate this restaurant is unwilling to host local community members wanting to use their space to celebrate with a large group. Thankfully there are other restaurants around town (Macaroni Grill and The Ram in Clackamas) who graciously and happily took our parties!

                        Although Rock Bottom has generally good food and drinks, I have to give them a bad reccomendation for their customer service. I recently had reserved a group space there for a birthday party, but two days before the party they told us that we could not come because of the size of the party (24 people..easy to fit to a few tables). The employee who I spoke with on the phone was not polite and did not appreciate our desire to have a party and bring a large amount of service to the restaurant. I quickly called another restaurant (Ram at Clackamas), who with two days notice made our reservation with no hassles. The service was amazing and I'm sure we would not have had that at Rock Bottom.

                        We do enjoy the food and beer at Rock Bottom and wanted to try once more to have a party there. This time it was for my Fiance and I's engagement party. A friend called them to make the reservation, and again the employees were rude and not the least bit accomodating. They were overbearing with many stipulations such as a minimum $900 charge to use the upstairs. Again, it is a few days before the party and we decided that it was not worth the trouble. We called Macaroni Grill on Yamhill (Which is delicious and whom we should have called in the first place). They politely agreed to accomodate our large engagement party with short notice, and I'm completely confidant that the service will be excellent.

                        If you are looking for good beer and mediocre service then Rock Bottom is a good choice. But if you want good customer service then I advise you to try the many other restaurants that far exceed Rock Bottom.

                        The food is generally good - love their garlic mashed potatoes! The only draw back is that the restaurant is very noisy. Nice for a rowdy evening out but not a date place. My husband and I love to go for the drinks, steak and potatoes. Fun on a rainy winter evening.

                        The atmosphere is busy, the food was about average and a little spendy, and the beer was hoppy and bitter just like I like it. But then towards the end of the meal some jerky that worked there put a bucket of soapy cleaning water on top of the booth directly where my girlfriend and I was sitting. Some of the soapy water splashed over and ran down the back of the booth wetting both me and my girlfriend's backs. I immediately stood up and said something to the guy and he looked at me as if I had antennae coming out of my head, with an expression like "WTF, it's only soapy water." I then I told our waiter who was moderately pleasant until now, and he just laughed at us and said "Oopps sorry". I tipped him like a dollar and my friends who were with me were very surprised and tipped him nothing. I am not asking for anything special just good treatment and a real apology (maybe a free dessert) when your cleaning guy screws up and soaks us with whatever foul chemical you use to disinfect your tables and seats.

                        They brew their own root beer too. One of the reasons I went, for sure. The first time I was there was for a group get together on a midweek evening. I couldn't believe how noisy it was. It was like a giant bar, which is fine since it's a "pub", but it was terrible for a group meeting. You couldn't hear someone talk two people away. The food was yummy, though 20 bucks for an appetizer platter with the sour cream, guac, and chicken was a bit ridiculous, even though two people could barely eat it. The service was good and the waitress granted my request for a different seating area since my seat was in a high traffic area. Yummy root beer. Everything on the sampler platter (14.99 with no sour cream, guac, or chicken, 20 with) was very good. My wife and I couldn't eat it all along with a very yummy bow of tomato basil soup ($5).

                        I must say, this is some of the best pulled pork that I have ever had. A bit pricy for everything else though. Get the slaw on the side, and get fruit as your side dish. It doesn't dissapoint. Oh, and the beer's good too!

                        The food is awesome, the service too, and the beer is fantastic! The prices are low, and almost everything is made from scratch! where else are you going to find that at such low prices! to the person with the party of ten, It clearly states on the menu that there is an auto-gratuity on parties of 8 or more. You'll find that in almost any restaurant!! Your waiter was not being sneaky, it's called AUTO gratuity for a reason!

                        I have tried and tried this place over and over just in hopes the food presentation will improve. Yet it does not, time and time again! If I am going to have a $10 burger I has to be great. The bun was wet and the lettuce was old! This place has a great feel to it but the food always terrible. The manager was happy to pass out free dessert tickets for our next visit. But I can promise never again will I set foot in this place.

                        My husband and I went to Rock Bottom and got the pretzels and nacho's. So good although the nacho's could have had more beans. Service was good and we didn't have to wait long. Enviroment is fun and a nice change from all the chain places around where we live. There is a parking garage just a block away so parking was not a problem. I am vegetarian and there was a lot of choices for me which was a suprise. There was a pasta dish I considered but it was almost 14.00. yikes. Had shrimp and I don't eat that but never asked what it would have been with no meat. Still....little spendy.

                        There's nothing special or unique about Rock Bottom Restaurants, but their food and beer is really good. They always have a special and at least one seasonal beer on tap, brewed on location, and their happy hour is not to be missed. Pitchers are a great deal and appetizers are $2. It's always crowded, so get there early. No matter how crazy it gets, RB's dedicated staff are prompt and courteous. Join their Mug Club to get special prices on beer all day, every day (22 oz for 16 oz price), plus they mail copuons throughout the year. The bar has recently been made smoke-free--hooray!

                        Some friends of mine from school introduced me to Rock Bottom and I love it. We went there one night after school and two nights later I took my boyfriend there. He loved it as well. I recommend an order of the pretzels, we also tried the nachos and those were awesome! My favorite is the wheat beer. I'm so picky about my beer but the wheat is awesome!! The staff is great, not too pushy, they pretty much leave you alone which I like because if I want to go to a bar I don't necessarily want a bunch of waiters/waitresses bugging me every 10 minutes. Rock Bottom is a new favorite of mine!

                        I recently went to dinner at RB with my boyfriend and the food was horrible!! I had the chicken w/ asparagus. The veggies were cold and not so tender for being "steamed". The roasted red potatoes were I believe microwaved, and the chicken...well lets just say I've had better tv dinners. My boyfriends cobb salad was just as bad, the dresssing was gross and the presentation was a mess he said. I think the only thing worth eating was the bread.

                        The service was good though, our waitress was very nice. But I will never eat there ever again!

                        I do not recommend Rock Bottom to anyone! I had the worst experience ever. We had a party of ten, and at first we were told they don't take reservations, which we found out later was a lie. The hostess didn't want to seat us and told us "Sorry you will have to find somewhere else to go."
                        It took 20 minutes to even get the waiter to our table! He screwed up our bill, and would not admit he made a mistake. He then tried to sneak his gratuity onto the bill without telling us! I will NEVER go to Rock Bottom again and plan on sending a nice letter to them...

They take pride in their food, their beer, and their establishment. And rightly so. Rock Bottom is a great restaurant that deserves praise.

                        I've never had a bad meal there; everything is good. The appetizers are huge and delicious. And the fish and chips are some of the best I've ever had. But let's get right down to it. The beer is outstanding. Even in a city where everyone knows beer, the beer at Rock Bottom is great. Give the IPA a try. You won't be sorry.

                        On a crowded Sat. night with a preschooler (5 y.o.), my husband and I were wary of this franchised pub 2 blocks from our hotel. But overall it was fine. The wait, though crowded, was only 5 minutes. After settling down comfortably in one of their dark paneled booths, we chowed down on some seared ahi-tuna (delish) and had a few beers. Their amber ale (similar to a lemony hefeweizen) matched my fresh halibut perfectly, though the halibut's grill marks were a little off-tasting (bitter/burnt). My husband enjoyed their rich stout with his top sirloin -- cooked perfectly medium rare. Service was fabulous. We ordered dessert (carrot cake) and a gallon of amber ale to go and both were outstanding. Will return.
