There is 6 of us left of a group from grade school and we get together once or twice a year. We chose Bottoms Up for lunch. I talked most everybody into the walleye basket and I had their soup of today-artichoke spinach- delicious. We had appetizers which are very good and everybody raved about the walleye. Guaranteed the best... More

It is nice to have a local bar and grill that you can go to and know you are going to get a good meal or snack. The food is always good, whether you are in the mood for a salad, just apps or a full delicious dinner. The wait staff is always friendly and willing to oblige the customer.... More

Food here is good, although one of our meals we ordered the pork chop dinner and were brought the pork chop sandwich. Oh well. Beef sandwich is really good. Server was a little ditzy

Go here for lunch quite often and the food is always good, portions large and with complimentary soup. The wait staff is always nice and accommodating. The prices are reasonable. It is a sports bar with numerous TV's. Their dinners are also very good and come with dessert, but a little pricey.

Bottom Up is right by my house and for some reason I forget to go there. The food is great, the menu pretty extensive, and prices are just right. They remodeled a few years ago and it is very clean and updated. The wait staff is very nice. Bottoms Up is a place you can take kids, grandparents, couples, business... More

Ran into a little trouble when one of the members of our motorcycle club asked for a PBR to drink. Though the waitress was unable to deliver the PBR she felt so bad she gave our guy some ice cream after we ate. It was very generous and we all got a good laugh out of it. All our food... More
