We were looking for a restaurant along Broadway in Nashville that brewed its own beer. This establishment hit the spot. (I think) it had about 8 or 10 brews on tap. Only a few darker beers, but it was summer, so I expect to see more light beers on the menu. They were not the best beers I've ever had,... More

After a disappointing "meal" at Jack's bbq on Broadway and 4th the prior night, stopped in for lunch at the Rock Bottom Grille the next day. It was refreshing to have good service, AC given how hot and humid it was that day, and the food was well above average. I'm not a beer drinker but the menu looked interesting.... More

It isn't a bad restaurant. Food was OK, but service is slow and wait staff seem over booked. They could not keep up which made service slow. If you are coming to Nashville, you are better to go to distinct Nashville spots where they try harder to give you the Nashville experience.

We had lunch there today. The location is optimal. We had a burger & brisket pizza. The pizza was amazing, the burger was ok. The beer sampler was good, I was very surprised by my favorite choice so I'm gad we had the sampler to explore new beers.

Ate lunch at here around 11:30 on a Sunday. Food was good. I had the green house salad which was a perfect size portion for me and very cheap (like less than $4.00) It was delicious and had mixed greens, cucumber, tomato, shredded carrots, sunflower seeds and raisins. (Super yummy for a salad). Service was good, but weird because the... More

It's a nice casual atmosphere when you walk in. It has outside seating along with rooftop patio. Had a burger which was really good but wish it was a little bigger with more fries. A bit pricey as well but overall was good, bartenders were nice as well

We desired a view of Broadway so we climbed the stairs to the rooftop. It was very hot and more umbrellas for shade would be helpful. We had to look for a server after waiting for about 15 minutes. The bartender reassured us that someone would get to us. Although the view was beautiful the competing music from different venues... More

We stopped in here after seeing someones plate of mac & cheese out on the patio as we were walking by. We sat inside because it was really hot and humid out, but wished we would have sat outside. The place is a restaurant and brewery and the smell of the brewing beer was absolutely disgusting! We tried to hold... More
