“Long wait, but good food and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

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.

“Brewery with good fresh cooked dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Rock Bottom is located right at Fountain Square in the middle of the city. Ate lunch here one afternoon and was not disappointed. Service was friendly and attentive. Had a great salad, large portion and very fresh greens. Lunchmates had the beer sampler ($6 for 6 small glasses) and they enjoyed all of them.

“Downtown Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

The Rock Bottom is located in the Fountain Square area of downtown Cincinatti. They have a great and varied menu and in addition to their beer selection, have a full bar. Staff are very attentive - A great place to have a meal/beer/cocktail

“Appetizer portions are large”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This casual restaurant/brewery is located in the Fountain Plaza. With many televisions in the bar and restaurant area this was the perfect location to watch the World Cup Finals and the Orioles/Yankees game that immediately followed. The menu provides numerous bar-food options as well as classic salads and a full entrée selection from comfort food like the Short & Stout beef pot pie to Ribs, Tacos and Salmon. There is truly something for everyone. Make sure you ask about the portion size as in many cases 2 adults can share a single item (our 1/2 portion Nachos could have fed 4!) Customer service was good but I'd ask that they smile more!
