One of my FAVORITE places, worldwide!

I travel the world for a living. And. I've never, EVER walked into a Bar/restaurant that made me feel welcome immediately. Day one! The proprietor (David) is the nicest guy ever and went out of his way to make me feel like a long time friend. The majority of his staff are helpful and attentive... read more

this place was recommended by a friend and lived up to his rave. I dined on a nice shepards pie and a hogargen beer. Service was prompt and the food came out fairly quick. The food was very good and the beer was plenty. The only reason they don't get a excellent is because the food came out separately with... More

It's a pretty well stocked and nice looking American style pub with sports on bigscreens and a full western menu. I ordered the burger and it was decent. It seemed to have sausage ground into it. Can't say it was the best value nor it was a conventional American burger but it was not bad though. The fries were excellent... More

Bottoms Up Saloon is a relaxing, comfortable restaurant/bar in the heart of downtown Kaohsiung. The food is well done and the drinks are as good as any in the city, whether you want a beer or a martini. Owner Dave is very personable "New Englander" expat and knows the area well if you have questions. My wife and I make... More

I was in Bottoms Up 3 weeks ago, I ordered their pork chop which was super juicy and tender, it was cooked to perfection . I sat and chatted with the owner David and we enjoyed several beers. He goes by the adage "Why dine in a restaurant when you can eat in a bar?". It's a simple philosophy which... More

We are two Canadians-Americans and we are staying in Khoasuing for a month, Bottoms Up should be No. 1 in the restaurant section of trip advisor the owner David is super friendly and the girls of his staff are wonderful and English speaking. The food is delicious and so are the drinks, just like home in Florida in the winter.

After traveling to smaller cities in Taiwan on business I was very happy to be diverted to Kaohsiung where I knew Smokey Joes awaited me! What I didn't know was Bottoms Up Saloon would be there too!! When I first checked out Tripadvisor for western restaurants I thought Bottoms Up might be more bar than restaurant because it advertises late... More
