Awesome food - Fresh and delicious

After being in Nashville a couple of days, and only eating very greasy fattening foods, I was very happy when we stumbled upon Rock Bottom. We went up to the fourth floor and sat on the inside - but they have an awesome rooftop patio. It was too windy and wet for us to sit outside, so we sat... read more

When traveling, we like to sample the local craft beers and this brought us to Rock Bottom while checking out Music Row. Our server knew the products and was a great help in making our selection. They were both great selections.

My husband and I were not very impressed with service. We waited way too long for our food and by the time it came my food was cool and my husband didn't get what he ordered. When we asked them to correct his order and take mine back to warm we continued to wait even longer. When they brought the... More

Went for a business lunch. We had great food at a fair price. Our table had a steak, burger, salad, and chicken dish. Everyone really enjoyed the food. They also had a wide selection of drinks. The staff was all very personable.

It has been several years since we have been here and not much has changed. Located on the main strip in Nashville, you cannot ask for a better place to people watch. There is a large outdoor seating area with ceiling fans. If it is too warm or cold, there is plenty of seating inside with nice large comfy booths.... More

I came here with a group of 12 on a Saturday. They told us the wait time will be 30 minutes. They were spot on. The waitress was great in that we needed 8 separate checks and she got it all correct. The food was good; I had a burger stuffed with beef brisket and onion rings. The burger was... More

Stopped in during a convention. Service was good and the food was good with a nice atmosphere. Don't think the bathroom attendant was needed. Will try the numerous other restaurants before return.

We ate here twice, both times outside under the covered patio on the street. It was exciting to see and hear the thriving heartbeat of Nashville, and yet still be somewhat removed from it. In other words, you can see and hear everything yet you still have privacy. Both the food and the beer were very good!!

Ordered a entree with mashed potatoes on the side and even explained to waiter I was watching my carbs, instead I got an extra serving of mash potatoes as well as an extra charge. Plus the beer I ordered came 3/4 of the way filled up. This is the same scam wine servers have been dealing us for ever, charge... More

We stopped here for a quick bite while were were shopping and sight-seeing on 6th Ave in Nashville. The food, service and beer were all very good! Location is easy in and out. Nice place- we will be back.
