Great pub food

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Even though it has a sports bar vibe, it is also family friendly. It is conveniently located in the downtown Nashville shopping area, not too far from the Ryman. Good location. I would eat there again.

Lively, fast service and good. Burgers were very nicely done. Waiter was friendly and unobtrusive while we talked business. Good for a late night snack

We arrived at Rock Bottom at 2pm on NYE and didn't leave until almost 10pm. We loved it there! Started with the beer flight (a sample of six of their beers), enjoyed a number of items off the bar menu and I indulged in the sangria - a definite must, despite the colder temperatures. The staff were friendly (especially the... More

Yes, they have music but has more of a sports bar feel. We got a nice 'quiet' booth by the windows, ordered beer and steak…nice end to our trip.

We had a big group (10) from out of town and stumbled upon Rock Bottom. Plenty of seating and we only had to wait a few minutes as we didn't have reservations. The food and service was excellent. The beer they serve is only their beer made in the brewery. I enjoyed them but if you wanted something different you... More

Ate here for dinner. Fast friendly service I'd request Gisepie he was great. I had the chicken strip appetizer it was filling enough fir a meal. I'd suggest the beer sampler. 6 small beers for $6.

We found ourselves here on several occasions. This was where we ate dinner on New Year's Eve. In spite of the crowd, the staff were friendly and attentive and the food was great! In terms of location for New Year's Eve, this was ideal. We ate dinner and then went out the door on to Broadway and were close to... More

We ate dinner here on New Years Eve. The wait wasn't bad, our waiter was on top of his game and our food was great! They were packed but service nor taste stammered. Definitely recommend. :)

There's a lot of space on the main floor, but you would be well served to go to the 4th floor roof top and either sit outside and look down on the bars and crowd scene on Broadway or inside out of the climate. We only had a glass of wine and a couple of starters, but enjoyed all of... More

We had a gift certificate for this restaurant and we decided to try it for dinner. Parking in the building is free if you ask the waiter to validate it. Although we were told to wait for 30 minutes to have a table, we found available seats at the bar area within 5 minutes. After grabbing couple of beers brewed... More
