Fun Place in a Great Location

I have been to Rock Bottom in Milwaukee and enjoyed the food there. Overall, I didn't feel the food here was quite as good, but the atmosphere and location are really great. We came in on a Saturday night with a group of seven, and we were told there would be an hour wait. After grabbing some... read more

I have visited Rock Bottom's in Denver and Milwaukee and Nashville just wasn't all that good. Food was just Ok and the waitress didn't know the beer selection very well. Expensive like other chain restaurants in the neighborhood but taste and quality didn't keep up with their competitors

The rooftop of Rock Bottom Nashville has awesome views and they have a bar and outside smoking area. They do have a limited menu on the rooftop, but it is a great place to have a drink or a quick bite before a show.

Went by for lunch, nachos were good, but waitress messed up my meal, and charged $1.50 to take guacamole off the Nacho's a modification fee, I would like to have been notified of a modification fee. I don't recommend this restaurant. there are to many other good restaurants to waste your money here.

Not a bad place to have a beer and watch a game - if you can get a seat at the bar as that is the best seat in the house. We only went to the upstairs bar. Somewhat industrial looking - the bartenders were great, very nice and very helpful. We were too late for food - but we... More

We visited this place for late night food and more drinks. I had the 2 AM burger and it was awesome! The drinks were good and the waiter was good as well. I would definitely go back.

Being a brewery and in October we of course had to have the Rocktober beer, their seasonal house brew, and it was great, and as for appetizers, we ordered the nachos, and it... More

We ate at the Bar and it was very comfortable. The food was very good but a bit on the pricy side. It is a higher scale restaurant that caters to the Nashville elite, or so it seems. They run a tight ship there as food, drinks, service is top notch.
