Was told by family living near Richmond that this was best Pizza...Well, not 100%, the toppings were right on, but the crust was very dry making it taste like stale bread. It really took away from the fresh crab meat topping. Thus the average rating. Went on a Saturday night, parking was a big problem, the restaurant was very busy,... More

We've been here more times than I can count. If you aren't watching your carbs, this is your place. WE love the mozzarella tracks and the thin crust Greek pizza. It is the bomb! good local beer selection too. Greek pizza and a legend brown = oh now I'm hungry! It's not a fancy joint and it's kinda loud, perfect... More

I had lunch on a hot July day. My waiter kept my iced tea and water glasses full. As always that slice of Jo-jo's pizza was all I needed and it was delightful.

I've been coming to Bottoms Up off and on for over 14 years. The food is good but not great. The service is fair. And the prices are average for the area. I like Bottoms Up for the scenery as much as for the food. At BU....you know you will get a decent meal for a decent price. Not sure... More

We stopped at Bottom's Up after a hard day of being tourists. My husband, daughter and I were starving and decided on BU from TripAdvisor. Although it was a little hard to find, being in Shockhoe with lots of one way streets! We did find our way to a public parking lot almost next door to the building, just a... More

A local resident had raved about Bottoms Up so we gave it a try. The location is a bit out of the way from downtown and its situated between the elevated highway ramp and a train trestle-not very interesting. The food was just ok, we had salads and a pizza. The pizza was large enough for two to share with... More

My husband and I were visiting my daughter who had just moved into a new apartment in Shockoe Bottom area and we chose Bottoms Up for a quick dinner as it was within walking distance of her new apartment. The pizza was just incredible! My daughter and I shared one a medium Goat in the Garden- with spinach, goat cheese,... More

We love this place and have been going here for fifteen years now. I have always loved the Chesapeake Bay, Renegade, Karen's Combo, Hawaiian, and Meatlovers pizza. The size of the slices equals to two large slices. We have truly enjoyed all the pizza, but we have noticed that service has been lacking when eating in the restaurant.

Good food, friendly service in this Richmond bastion of all things pizza. Great menu variety/options or build your own... from a single slice to a full pie, the Bottoms Up is tops!

Crust is thick but crispy at the same time. Sauces and toppings were delicious. We enjoyed it so much, we ordered it twice. Delivery takes a while, but it's worth the wait in our opinions.
