Description: Rock Bottom Bethesda is five miles north of DC, just off Wisconsin Avenue at the corner of Norfolk Ave and St. Elmo Ave. Yes, it's a lot of Avenues, but we're totally worth it. Just wait until you take your first sip of an award-winning, handcrafted ale from Brewmaster Geoffrey S. Lively. Not only does the beer speak for itself, but he started at Mile High Brewing...that's right, the Laverne & Shirley brewery. Possibly the best credential ever.And hey, don't forget to check out our recently refreshed menu of made-from-scratch entrees, appetizers, dinner salads, burgers and sandwiches.

“A fun beer place in Bethesda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Good specials, tasty beers and food, pleasant servers. This is an easy choice when you are looking for a good beer and bar food. The only down side is that it can get really loud, so not a good place for a quiet conversation.

“Flights are fun, and there's savory food, too.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We liked the choices and the flights of interesting beers. It's all a little fatty, as you'd expect, and I hope that gets fixed in time.

“Good food & great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I ate dinner here on a Wednesday evening and enjoyed the experience. I had the Texas Fire steak with Mac n cheese and broccoli with a house salad. The portions are big and the steak was cooked to my preference (medium well) to perfection. The Mac n cheese was wonderful. Our waiter was Jonathan and he was friendly and efficient. Hubby had the southwestern shrimp and chicken and said it was spicy, but good. Will go back.

“Good if you like hoppy beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

The dinner menu is a bit limited and like all beer joints the food is loaded with salt. The service is quite good.
