Chaos at lunch

Went for lunch on a Holiday but the room was still packed because there was a girls high school volleyball tournament in town. This made the atmosphere uncomfortable with the noise level and wait on the food. The table service was great and we had several different members of the staff provide... read more

Place was hopping. Parked right next to the door.Very friendly. Favorite pizza. And I have lived in NY and visited Rome. Chose white with crab meat. Delishous. Sorry it didn't last in the West End.

I'm an "implant" - recently moved to Richmond and have been hearing all about this Richmond staple. After one of our work engagements, staff all decided to go to Bottoms Up. I'm from Boston and used to the set up of Shockoe Bottom/ Shockoe Slip and parking, so didn't bother me. Heading into restaurant, looks like a cool dive! There... More

Dined here on a busy Saturday night of Thanksgiving weekend and enjoyed a fun evening with our adult children and 2 little grandsons. The location is interesting,being near 3 different train tracks and Beautiful Union Station. Since we are northerners, we enjoy getting a bit of history with our dinner! Beer is cold, side salad is very tasty, and thick... More

Went to this place on a busy Saturday night. We had a short wait, and quick service. Kid-friendly restaurant on the James River. The pizza was delicious, with an amazing crust. Definitely stop by here.

I have been meaning to re-write a review for Bottoms Up for a long time, just haven't gotten around to it until now. Our first experience here was just mediocre. Everything had good flavors but our pizza was apparently over cooked. The manager got into contact with me and made things right... We have since been here multiple times and... More

Love the seafood pizza. Have had pizza in NY, Chicago and Rome. This is my favorite. But everyone has different taste.

The Pizza was awesome, the service for awesome and the price was reasonable. There is 4 of us and we got a slice of specialty pizza each. Nick was our server and could have not asked for a better one. My husband ran in the marathon. I told Nick that he had and Nick brought him two glasses of water.... More
