Not as good as I remember

Just went back for the first time in 20 years tonight. It was decent, not great. Service - ok. Table was dirty. Then wiped down with a very wet rag that left the table covered. Then wiped off with 1 napkin? Kinda got off to an unclean feel. Beer - not a huge selection, but good options. Major... read more

We took a group of 21 (adults/High School students) for dinner on a Thursday evening. Location was ok, not for walking, but parking for a charter bus was a disaster. Took the driver 30 minutes to find a place big enough for the bus. (Public parking about 2 blocks away. $5 a space after 5pm.....that's $30 for a bus and... More

The single slices were so large, they hung over the plate. Every pizza on the extensive menu is also available with either a crispy gluten free crust or twin portabella mushroom caps. The crab artichoke pizza was delicious! The waitstaff provided excellent service, even accommodating separate checks for a party of 10. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Their selection is one of the largest I have ever seen. There are so many options ranging from Chesapeake Bay Crab pizza to white pizzas with ham and pineapple, in addition to all the traditional pizza offerings. They had a location in the West End a couple of years ago, and I wish they would again open one in the... More

Located in historic Shockoe Bottom, Bottoms Up has tasty salads, delicious wings and breadtracks and pizzas. You can get pizza by the slice (one slice will fill you up,) personal size thin crust pizza and gluten free pizza. Excellent choice of beers on tap. Resaturant has outdoor seating and is located under the railroad tracks and next to the James... More

I recently got Bottoms Up pizza delivered to the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Richmond. Ordering was easy over the phone. The delivery wait was long 45mins to an hour but was expected for a busy pizza place on a Friday night. We ordered a medium to Goat in the Garden pizza. The pizza was really fresh and had a great...

Stopped in Richmond to meet friends on our way to the beach. Had a great meal with amazing pizza. HUGE portions! Great kids menu. Do not miss the Chesapeake - I took a chance and it was delicious! Sampled several other pizza combos and they were all fresh, yummy and the crust was out of site.

We were surprised at the quality and quantity of the salad that we got with our pizza. The salad was a real deal and was very fresh

Easy on and off highway location and to find parking. Pizza by the slice (greek) or a whole pie. Casual. Always good (Greek).

Good price and variety of pizza. Weve been here too many times to remember and it is always delicious! Consistency is a big thing for me in resaurants and Bottoms Up never fails! Best pizza joint in Richmond hands down!
