Beer experience

It is a good brewery and pub where you find what you are looking for in terms of food and beers. The biggest surprise was a special beer I never thought one could make. The Three Pepper Ale just has ingredients that you don't generally expect in beer: peppers. The brewer must have had a very... read more

I stopped at Rock Bottom twice on a recent trip to Indianapolis--once for a beer and the second time for dinner. At the bar, the bartenders were friendly and provided good service. Dinner was a less positive experience. Nothing at Rock Bottom was bad, but neither was anything above average. I tried the fish and chips, and they were average.... More

They have their own local beers made on site so be ready for that. I had a chicken dish and it was one of the best I have had in a long time. There is outside seating which is fun to people watch but it had a wait on a Saturday night so we were immediately sat inside for a... More

Great place to eat and gather with a family to celebrate an event. Food was excellent as well as the service. Very lively and noisy place right in the heart of downtown. Within walking distance of Lucas Oil stadium.

The beer was pretty decent, I had the IPA and the Red Ale. The food was good and cooked to order. But the service left something to be desired. It was very "short" (attitude) and slow.

Very good food and drinks. I order the Mac-n-parm crusted chicken. I would of given a Excellent review if my waitress was not snobby. I will eat here again if I do not have the same waitress. The Hostess was friendly.

Our first evening in Indy we visited Rock Bottom. During our visit, a fire department instructors conference was taking place at the convention center so the restaurant was decked out in fire department paraphernalia. Dora here. Imagine that. Isn't that why we were in Indy? Lol. Even bursting with fire personnel, we didn't wait long for a table, and our... More

Food, service, and beers are average. Good but not over the top. Atmosphere is welcoming and service is good. Good spot to gather with a group.

Our server did a great job, even on a busy Friday evening. Food is what you'd expect from a chain, not bad, just sort of bland. I feel like the beers are also quite conservative, they were fresh and tasty, just nothing too memorable.
