Some appetizers were very expensive. It was $9 for just guac and chips (not very good), but only $2-3 for a side of mashed potatoes and green chilis (was tasty!). Nice and attentive service. Also, they allowed backpacks (many other bars on the strip do not allow backpacks).

I am a big stout fan. We sat outdoors at the brewery and enjoyed their beer selection. It is a great location with good views at all the activities taking place in Broadway Street.

Granted we were a large group-9-service was extremely slow. The young lady was doing her best, but it appeared she was waiting several tables. When we did get our dinner we were underwhelmed. Re-fills on our drinks were accomplished as we got our check. Neat place, but not enough help or menu to get us back.

First, the service was really really slow. When I came I waited for ten minutes until the menus were brought, and I didn't have the chance of ordering the drinks at least. Then another ten minutes to order and, you guess it,another ten minutes until I finally got my drinks. A few another 15 minutes or so for the burger... More

The open air rooftop with downtown Nashville and the river and stadium behind you are very cool! Had lunch and watched the Titans game. We could hear the crowd cheer and then watch it on the TV a few seconds later. Fun time!

On our first day in Nashville we wandered along Broadway early in the afternoon, looking for a place to stop for lunch. Rock Bottom was very good - my husband enjoyed the locally brewed beer and there was a reasonable selection of wines by the glass. Our meals - blackened mahi sandwich and mac & cheese with chicken - were... More

It's a cool place at the end of the Nashville strip right by the river. It gets crowded but there wasn't a wait. The food was 3/5, but they brew their own beer. They have a rooftop area but the food menu up there is very limited.

We had a good lunch with a view of the stadium and the hustle and bustle of Broadway. There's lots of choices for food and drinks.

One of the staff at our hotel recommended Rock Bottom as a fun place to watch a game. "Take the elevator up, no one knows about the roof top bar" EVERYONE knows about the rooftop bar, and the outside downstairs, inside downstairs, etc. It was a packed house. Great beers and decent bar food. Really friendly staff.

We were going to the Hard Rock over the road until we saw their menu. The service was friendly and helpful to out of town folk and the food was great with large helpings. We saw one couple eating half their meal and taking the other half home. Can really recommend it and it was half the price of the... More
