Amazing rooftop bar

At a place called rock bottom you would not expect an awesome rooftop bar but it had one! The live music came on later in the day which was nice and we enjoyed some acoustic country on a gorgeous sunny day with some refreshing beers. The mango mojito, recommended by our server, was also delicious... read more

We visited with our 8 and 11 year old and they were excited about the Make your own pizza option on the kids menu. They had fun spreading the sauce, cheese, and pepperoni on their own pizza. Food was great and atmosphere is awesome! We ate on the main floor but visited the rooftop after where you could see a... More

Food was decent but service and atmosphere was top notch. Fun place for happy hour and appetizers. Great view of the river and LP stadium and really good people watching down below in Broadway.

After walking down Broadway and enjoying the many bands and options for food and drinks, we chose The Rock Bottom. It was so good. The music was great. The service was flawless....the waiter came when we needed him, and stayed away when we didn't. Perfect service. The placement was also perfect....we could look up Broadway at the action, or down...

Rock Bottom is located on Broadway between 1st & 2nd Avenues, so still in the Honky Tonk district but a little bit away from all the masses of people. It is a large restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating (both street level and rooftop). For this area the prices are pretty reasonable and the food was surprisingly good ... we... More

We took a shuttle from our hotel to experience famous Broadway St in Nashville. Restaurant is in a wonderful location to start your evening. Food was great, service spot on and prices very reasonable.

My son and I dropped in at the Rock Bottom Brewery for sft drinks and appetizers after tramping around the historic area of Nashville. We shared a plate of nachos and had root beers and iced teas. We had such a nice time that we returned the next afternoon, bringing more family with us. We again split a nachos plate... More

Nashville is a fun and entertaining place. There are scores of pubs and restaurants and we chose this one to sit at the railing and watch the people walk and ride by. There are many beers on tap and good bar food.

Tried the fish tacos & their IPA. The food was great as usual, beer was good, and the service was great. Nice location, right in the heart of the action. Oh, and we started with the fresh avocado dip. . . . Really good also.
