This is a nice out of the way place to go to in the local area. We went there for an early dinner. They offer specials and they have good food and good service.

TripAdvisor helped me find this place. Didn't want a chain restaurant, but wanted drinks and a larger menu. Bar atmosphere with techy jukebox. Fun. Friendly. Food was pretty satisfying. Drinks were decent. Lots of food with their specials. Good deal for your money. Clean and decent service. Off the beaten path.

It is a bar but it has wonderful food! The burgers are GREAT! Fun atmosphere, especially when there is a Sox or Blackhawks Game on!

We eat here once a week, sometimes twice. We've NEVER had a bad meal here. 98% of the time I have left overs for lunch. Service has always been great too. Dinners include soup AND salad and a small dessert. I recommended this place to everyone. I've used their food for parties too. As for the person saying they don't... More

We had just got home from a trip down south and our go to place is Bottom's Up Sport Bar and Grill. It was a very busy Friday night and sat back in the large dining area. They have special happy hour now and the house wine is great and finally reasonably priced. Nice dinner special selections every day. Today... More

Have eaten here many times. The food is always good but the service is hit or miss. Some of the waitresses go above & beyond, others are there because they have to be & it shows in their attentiveness to the patrons. Again, the food has always been good & you get a lot for the money!

When we want consistently good food, the place is Bottoms Up. Had the patty melt and my friend had the walleye dinner. Always the best walleye around and my patty melt is for sure a go to burger. I like the idea of potato salad for a side, which theirs is great. The soup of the day was stuffed peppers... More

There is 6 of us left of a group from grade school and we get together once or twice a year. We chose Bottoms Up for lunch. I talked most everybody into the walleye basket and I had their soup of today-artichoke spinach- delicious. We had appetizers which are very good and everybody raved about the walleye. Guaranteed the best... More
