good beer choices

Went on a Thursday night and it was very crowded but they offered to let us sit in the bar and eat. They offered beer and food paring suggestions on the menu. Despite being very busy our waiter did a fantastic job of seeing to our needs.

This is a big place so they got us in and out rather quickly. We were happy with all of our menu selections. Only downfall, we ordered a side salad and as we ate it felt it was rather large for a side salad, so we asked the waitress about it and it was not a side salad. She made... More

We liked everything about it. We ate outside and we were served immediately . Menu was appetizers, dinners, sandwiches, whatever you want. Beer was very good, they have their own micro brew. Convenient, no wait, and good views to people watch while eating. Right near the riverfront.

Let me start with our server, Joy. She was awesome. Probably one of the best servers we had while in Nashville. Rock Bottom- you have a great employee who really loves working there! Food was awesome, consistent for the chain restaurant. After wandering downtown Nashville we wanted to find a place with great food. The rooftop view was awesome and... More

I am giving four stars for food primarily. The wait staff seemed a bit inexperienced, but they were nice. We were there on a hot day, but seemed the A/C couldn't keep up with the demand to cool everyone down. I loved the decor and the veggie pizza was excellent. We got there when they were having happy hour and... More

Ordered appetisers and main courses, all came at the same time.....not a good sign. The food was tasty and there was a wide selection of beers all at a reasonable price. The staff were polite and friendly. If they would only get the service of food right I would be tempted to try again.

I've been to Rock Bottoms in other locations so I thought why not try this one for dinner. It was well worth walking in and sitting down. I did their IPA which could be a bit more hoppy but overall it was drinkable. I started with their stuffed pretzel and it was spot on perfect with the spicy mustard. I... More

The beer selection was great and they will give you a taste of anything you would like. The staff was very helpful with suggestions and they have a constantly shifting selection. In fact, they do a special night each time they tap a keg of a new kind of beer. Right off of Broadway and absolutely worth stopping in.

Great night for the rooftop. Music was excellent, views were stunning and the drinks were great! The food was much better in the restaurant downstairs.

If you go (really) early, you may get lucky enough to have a table on the roof with what I imagine must be an amazing view over downtown Nashville and Broadway. If you don't, you might have to wait 30 minutes before finding a table inside. It's not that they lack space, but they do lack personel. The waiters don't... More
