A typical Rock Bottom offers the same experience that you will get at almost any location in the chain. The beers may not be total duds but do not expect any amazing drafts like what you may find in Chicago. The big draw for this Rock Bottom location is its proximity to downtown. An easy walk from most hotels means you can get a few ticks without much work. Otherwise drive a bit further to find better brewpubs that are not part of a larger chain.

Another mediocre Rock Bottom where nothing stands out. Mediocre beer and food in a cliche environment. One beer I had made only at this location was nothing special.

Only a few options on tap. Te double ipa was pretty good. The others i sampled were fairly pedestrian. Food is good but a bit pricey. Service is very quick, which was a surprise for a downtown location that was fairly full.

Near the hotel downtown. Never been to a rock bottom before so this was a good chance to stop by. Their own specialty beers where much better than the standard RB mandated beers. Food was pretty good, if not a bit pricey. Enjoyable.

Nice downtown location near my hotel so I checked it out today. Seemed like a typical chain bar, but I did like seeing the beer kettles behind the bar. Service was very slow and not too knowledgeable about the beers. Thankfully another bartender came around that finally got me a water and actually asked if I wanted another beer, while the other guy and 2 female bartenders didn’t after a significant amount of time. Flights of 4 with 4 ounce pours for $3.50 was a steal, great value there. Not much of a selection and the beers are just slightly above average. Worth a stop if you are already downtown, but probably not a destination with a bunch of other great options close.

A well-lit chainy type place, as is to be expected. My waitress was prompt and somewhat knowledgeable about the products. The selection is mainly their stuff, some of the chain brews, a few things from the brewer, and a cask or two if you hit the right night. I only had an appetizer, and it was fine. Prices are average and reasonable. Overall, definitely better than the RAM, but you’re better off hitting some of the smaller homey brewpubs. If you have the time, go ahead and hit this one too.

Your typical Rock Bottom, but I always enjoy the local recipes and non-mandated beers. This location had two cask beers to accompany their regular line up.

Location is decent. Really functions much better as a restaurant than as a brew-pub, and that’s saying something - waitress was good, but food was sort of bad - not stomach-churningly bad, but a hamburger and fries shouldn’t look like a plastic reproduction of a hamburger and fries, and for a minute or two after finishing, I should have some memory of what I just ate. As for the beers, good price on a long flight, but most of them just couldn’t ascend over that standard ’brewpub’ taste. Batting average is not very good - a lot of (bad, boring) misses for every hit.
