    The Rock Bottom Brewery: A dark and fun brewery. (-the best I could do.)

    The RBB has a dark atmosphere, reminscent of an old pub. The ceilings are relatively low and the music over the ceiling speakers is quiet enough to fit nicely in the backgroud. It's a popular place in the Flats. When my friend and I were there, the bar was packed, as well as the huge dining areas (Saturday night). Throughout the brewery, are large fermentation tanks on display (behind glass) to allow the brewery atmosphere feel more overt.

    Favorite Dish: I tried the Chicken Genovese (sans tomatos) and it was great! The walnut pesto cream and parmasean made for a tasty sauce and the chicken was smothered with chives and tasted slightly grilled, even though it was not. It also did not come with gobs of walnuts, which was fine with me. There should been a higher noodle>chicken ratio, though.

    The Rock Bottom Brewery: Full Rack

    by El_Cookie Written Nov 25, 2006

    Really nice restaurant. Has the typical dark lighting pub style atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: My brother and I had the Asiago Cheese Dip & Bread & Calamari Diavolo for appetizers. The Calamari was good just like any other place but the Asiago Cheese Dip with the bread it is served with was...is a must have lets leave it at that. My brother ordered the Texas Fire Steak top sirlion with mashed potatoes and green bean. Cooked just the way he likes it RARE. I had the full rack of ribs with fries the 1st half slab was excellent but the 2nd half slap was a little on the dry side.

    The Rock Bottom Brewery: Chain microbrewery just outside of downtown

    by bcorbitt Written Jan 5, 2005

    The first annoying thing is that the parking is 3 dollars to park next to the place though it is out all by itself next to a very large parking lot. I found street parking with no problem and including the parking lot walked 3 blocks. Still considering the size of the parking lot they could validate if one spent a certain amount of money on food and beer. The food and beer are the typical Rock Bottom fair ie just a step above the applebees or other chain bar and grills. You come for the beer and the normal selection of beers with names with local flavor are served. The service was good even though our server also had to bus her own tables which is something I would rather not have someone who touched a dirty rag to also touch my dinner plate.

    Favorite Dish: Both the tuna tacos and the pasta dish were excellent but you come for the beer and all are above average with everything from light beer to a dark stout in their selection. If this is the first time get the sampler.
