Stopped in here for a light dinner the night before the Richmond Marathon. Single slice of pizza - more substantial than it may sound and very tasty - and a side salad.

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

I'm not quite sure why this pizza is so loved here and I've had it at least a dozen times, only because of the insistence of friends at lunch time. Oh, on second thought, I know exactly why: people just love average food here, mistaking it for something exceptional. I've been in this town for about 8 years now and... More

Sat outside on the second deck. Great atmosphere with the trains going by, although a bit loud. Pizza was tasty. Had both the deep dish sourdough and the thin. Wings were delicious, too.

We were in Richmond for the Worlds. I was out for a ride with some locals and they recommended this place. The recommendation was well placed. They also recommended that if ordering thick pizza, get one slice and a salad. Several in our party did this and it worked. I had a salad and a thin pizza - also good.... More

Met a friend here for lunch yesterday. They have a large assortment of freshly baked pizzas along with a nice selection of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, pasta, low carb options, and a kids menu. The pizza menu includes what they call their "signature pizza" selections as well as a "create your own option." We opted for the signature selection. You... More

I ate here while my wife had a business dinner at a nearby restaurant. I wanted it to be better than it was but maybe I just chose wrong. Bottoms Up, though, remains a place I always recommend to people visiting Richmond -- cool building and surroundings. Alison was my server and was nice. They have free wifi so I... More
