Stopped in for a beer and nachos. I had their house Kolsch, which was ok. Also had their nachos, and again just ok. They do give you a lot for the money though. Could have been cheesier. Service was good and the restaurant itself was a nice place where you could eat inside or out. Also a very nice location.

Rock Bottom is one of the nicer restaurants downtown. But it is not too pricey. They have a wide selection of food and drink. I had a burger with avocados that was absolutely delicious. It's far enough down on Broadway that you're not in the heart of all the tourists, but you still get to see a lot of the... More

We were running out of options, and Rock Bottom was able to take a party of seven without a wait. Our waitress was very good, but the food was average. Typical chain restaurant. Nothing out of the ordinary.

While on a bachelorette weekend we ate here before heading home. We had just finished doing the Country Music Hall of Fame and we were hungry and thirsty. We had a great server who knew the menu and made some great recommendations. I had the Flight of Beers that are made on site and they were all very drinkable. This... More

Visited twice, once for a meal which was good, and the 2nd time for drinks. What we love about it is the roof top patio, which on a summer night was a great place to eat and hang out

My husband and myself ate here whilst staying in Nashville and were very happy with the food. It is in a great location, on Broadway. We requested a table outside and only had to wait around 15 mins. The wings for starters were lovely and my steak was cooked to perfection. My husbands chicken was also delicious. The home brewed... More

We've been to the Charlotte and Denver locations, and this was just as good. We actually ate there twice during a recent stay and were happy each time. It's a safe bet, decent value, good service, and the food was good as well.
