They have it all. Great craft beer, TV's with sports on them, great service, and really good food. We had a terrific steak that we went back for the next day. I highly recommend.

We came here for a businesses meeting and it was a mistake. We could barely hear the speaker because of the kitchen and bar noise. The beer is good but the selection is low. Service was great and price is good. Parking is wonderful considering any of the restaurants in the area.

Family friendly, great atmosphere, great foods and alcohol options. Not as 'commericallized' as the Hard Rock. The Nachos appetizer is tasty and not the 'every-day' nacho tray! Bacon Mac& Cheese was tasty, and the cheddar mashed potato side was awesome too! Highly recommended.

We got in late to Nashville and went here on ncaaf playoff weekend. Ordered appetizers and refreshments. Soon decided that we would stay for dinner. Bison steaks were cooked to our liking and the refreshments continued. We liked it so much we spent 5 hours there the next night watched NFL. Not too loud, plenty of TVs, and we were... More

Easy service and good craft brews. Burgers were good and I liked the artichoke and crab dip. A friend enjoyed the street tacos. Prices were really fair especially for the strip!

Good beers and good food paired with good service, we enjoyed the dinner much and were impressed about the service. Our server did even give us some sauce samples upon some concerns of spicyness. Great place and atmosphere, the burgers are just really great!!!!

We stopped in for Apps and drinks after a convention. The beers were really good. I tried the sampler and got 9 beers. My two favorites were the seasonal pumpkin and their wheat beer. Both were excellent although all the beers were good. As for food we only had a couple of appetizers. The pretzels with cheese sauce were very... More

Good experience at Rock Bottom, located on Broadway next to the Cumberland River. Decent atmosphere and service at the bar. I enjoyed their bourbon salmon and seasonal pumpkin stout.

We chose Rock Bottom to have dinner with friends. I had the Ribeye which was fantastic!! My wife chose the Mahi-Mahi dinner. She raved about how good it was. The only thing that we didn't like was the amount of Calamari we had as an appetizer compared to the price. Otherwise the atmosphere was great and the food was very... More

Great location down by the river. Good beer and drinks. The food was really good with a lot of choices! We wound up eating here twice on our trip for convenience and options.
