We stopped in as a last resort on recent stay in Nashville. Food was average, service was slow and no music for something on Broadway....better options are available.

Not worth it for the price point. The food was average at best the service was decent. I usually steer clear of Broadway because it's a tourist trap and this is no exception.

Large open restaurant/bar area. Surprisingly for Broadway there was no live music. Food menu was OK, I had the turkey burger which was fine.

New Year's day, so busy everywhere. This was the only place that could accommodate 6 people without a long wait. The burgers were bland even with all the toppings.

My husband and I visited Nashville for the first time this week and stayed on 4th Street, easily walkable to Rock Bottom. We walked in, were immediately sat, and welcomed by our server, Abby.

I'm not sure how this restaurant isn't rated higher. The decor is really awesome, the food is bomb, and the staff was very friendly. We had the pretzel appetizer, the chicken mac and cheese, and the Cajun chicken sandwich. All were top notch. They also have a $6 beer sampler that comes with 6 half servings of beer. Great food,...

We were only in town for 1 night and stopped in for dinner. The food was pretty good, it could have been warmer when served though. The service was extremely SLOW. It is a good thing we were not in a hurry, because the entire time it seemed like we were waiting on something.
