This was the first time I visited Bottom Up Pizza and it was wonderful. We had a group of 7 and everyone loved the pizza. The restaurant is located beneath three railroad trestles and we had three trains pass while we were there. Each time our granddaughters had to run out and see the train. It was a wonderful experience.... More

Being a native of Richmond, I've been here many times and so has my wife. We've never had a bad meal. Took the kids for the first time since we were in town visiting and they liked it too. Hope it always remains the way it is!!!

We go once or twice a year with family or friends when we want an "upscale", great pizza in a warm, dynamic environment with moderate prices. The crowd is young, happy, and having a good time. The negative reviews surprise me because Bottoms Up has been so consistent over the years for us (we even had a company Christmas party... More

I've lived in Richmond for 30+ years and Bottoms Up is the most overrated pizza spot in town. Sure, it's downtown, large and has outdoor seating, but the pizzas are mediocre at best and overpriced. With Belmont Pizza for take out, and Mellow Mushroom for a fun dine in experience, there really is no reason to go to Bottom's Up.... More

Friends and family with children. There were children everywhere having a wonderful time. Actually one group having a birthday party. So it's children friendly . The service was good. Pleasant waiters, serving great pizza. Definitely a must go to in that historical area.

Used to eat here all the time years ago when I lived in the area. Was visiting the area with my kids and wanted to see if it lived up to my memories. It did. "It's not Chicago style or NY style...it's Richmond style". We each ordered slices. A sluce is a meal. My 9 yr old daughter devoured her... More

First of all...Tyler our server was incredibly sweet attentive and fun. The pizza was out of this world perfect. The crust was crispy, the pie was incredible. The trains running above only added to the cool ambience and amazing pizza pie experience! Just go! You wont regret it!

Had my husband's birthday dinner here. I made a reservation for about 20 people the week prior and was even able to pre-order several apps and pizzas so we wouldn't have too long to be served, which was crucial after visiting 5 breweries throughout the city earlier that day. I dropped off the birthday cake and balloons earlier in the... More

This pizza reminds me of a place in Baltimore that closed last year. Bottoms up has good service, salads, pizza, drinks are all food. Staff is friendly & know the menu well. Neat atmosphere. It's nice to hang out, not feel rushed and enjoy your food. Wish there was better parking but hey, its worth the walk for this good... More

My family loves to go to Bottoms Up! I love to get the house salad with the Basil Vinaigrette dressing. The Chesapeake pizza is fantastic! It is loaded with crabmeat and onions with a white sauce! Awesome. My kids love the regular pepperoni pizza! The atmosphere is fun and inviting! Great place to eat!

Thank Cindy R
