I went to Rock Bottom for dinner and had what I usually get at most locations since this is a chain. It was what I expected. Service was fine. I wasn't blown away by my server but not disappointed either. Everything was ok. Food was tasty. Everything was what you would expect for this chain.

I was so thrilled with my experience here I am currently writing from the table! Get the Mac and cheese and beer sampler, and the sangria is beyond delicious. Our server was knowledgeable and patient--she even split the Mac and cheese entree for my boyfriend and I so we could try an appetizer! I was seriously impressed and will definitely... More

This was a pleasant surprise. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine and an appetizer after a long work day. I ordered the artichoke crab dip with corn chips and ate the whole thing myself. It was gluten free and absolutely fantastic. My colleagues ordered the nachos. All I can say is "wow". No... More

Stopped in for a diverse menu with the family. We were interested in a place with many choices for people range from 12-40+. We found lots of good choices including a tasty burger and various pasta dishes.

We visit Cincinnati often and we always end our night at Rock Bottom! They have a great bar, great late night menu, and an all around great atmosphere. It's right on Fountain Square and easily accessible to many in the downtown area.

It took awhile to be seated, and the girls working the hostess station seemed to be less than organized. However, the selection of beers and menu made up for it.
