I was a little hesitant to go here, but I'm glad we did. The pizza was a little thicker than what I'm used to eating (as another reviewer mentioned), but it was very, very good. The portions are substantial, and considering the price, that's a good thing.

Bottoms up has the best pizza in the metro Richmond area. If your looking for a nice place by the river to eat then this is it for sure. Number one pizza place is here. You get big portions also.

Very nice deep dish pizza. Definitely a nice spot to chill at on a warm summer evening in Richmond. This place has a lot of history.

I kept hearing about how great this pizza is. Not great at all. Below average, as bad as dominos. Very expensive also. Waste of money. No need to eat there ever.

I love this friendly atmophere. Our waitress was lovely (Rita) and took great care of our large boisterous family. We were able to get loads of good food, good inexpensive wine and quick friendly service. I strongly reccomend this for a large group.

This place has fantastic crust, usual and unusual toppings, and great specialty pizzas which makes for a great place for casual dining. Eclectic atmosphere and a view of the flood wall and triple decker train bridges. Absolutely unique experience with incredible pizzas. Even better? Consider them to "cater" your event...You will be a big hit.

The Good: Ingredients- The ingredients on the Meat Master and Mexican slices that I ordered were fresh and tasty. Chicken Wings- In my opinion, Bottoms Up has the best chicken wings... More

Went w/a large group, planned ahead, and were supposed to get a "buffet". That was a busy tournament wknd in town, so I'm glad our huge party planned ahead, and it was nice of them to accommodate us, as it is not a very big place. As you walk in the door, there is a bar and little place to... More
