Visited October 2010.

Arrived pretty late, after about 4 other stops so I didnt eat, just got a sampler. To my surprise they had 3 barrel aged beers on tap. One of them was pretty good (a cherry bourbon stout) the rest were a bit too boozy for their own good. The non barrel aged stuff was alright too.

Service was pretty good but it was late and there werent a ton of customers in the building, so who knows how it is when itís busy.

Some day Iíd like to revisit the place.

Standard RB set up, nothing new...The beers were disappointing for 2 reasons, 1. 2 of their seaonsals were gone and not replaced with anything and 2. their samples only consisted of the RB standard beers and wouldnít let you sub out like other locals. Of the 2 seasonals they were ok, nothing special. You can skip this RB.

Stopped in try a beer on the way to a wedding. A large restaurant with a large granite square bar and a good number of TVs. Service was good and bartender was knowledgeable. Beers were hit and miss but price was fine. Had the nachos which were quite nice. A solid rock bottom.

11/17/07: Went last night after seeing online that they have their 2 FoBab Silver Medal winning beers on tap: Argus India Brown & Creme Dreme. Place was packed and clientele on avg. about 10 yrs older than last time. When I ordered the Hogs Head Bitter on cask, bartender Ryan hooked me up w/ samples of the CO2 and Nitro versions as well. That gesture aside, Ryan is one of the best bartenders Iíve come across in awhile. 9/15/06: This is the nicest Rock Bottom Iíve been to in terms of decor. They spent some money on it. Now, if they could only make good beer! The Oatmeal Stout I had was decent. If they took a page out of the downtown location and always had 3-4 higher test offerings for the beer geeks, this would be a joint worthy of repeat visits. The scene was pretty much all 20 somethings, except for our group. Itís only a 10 minute drive from my house, so if they ever raise the caliber of their beer, Iíll be going back.

Itís weird, this is one of my favorite brewpubs. It definitely pushes the line of suburban chain, but somehow, it doesnít cross it. Very high quality beer coming out of this location and the service is top notch. Even the Chad and Trixie crowd doesnít bother me too much.

Visited here to kill some time after shopping last night and have to echo the others on the decor. Felt a little corporate and deffinitely more restaurant then bar, but very nice. Busy buzzing atmosphere full of the afore mentioned yuppies and mall goers, of which I was one so I canít complain I guess. The place is practically in a mall afterall. Strong Ale was served up at a nice temp, but the IPA came out ice cold. Service was mind numbingly slow as the bartenders seemed to be running in circles filling orders from the restaurant. My original bartendress dissappeared after I had my second brew, never to be seen again. I hate having to ask for another beer after waiting with an empty, and even more hate having to ask to pay my bill after sitting around empty for 10 minutes. They needed more bartenders for the busy shopping season. After many more visits service has been consistently better, and updated as such. Decent pub food. Brewer is really starting to shine with some of his seasonal offerings.

Met the brewer, Tim, while there...super nice guy and he bought us a beer too!!! Very cool!!!! We didnít eat but it is a Rock Bottom so the food is surely the same...had a bunch of his seasonals and they were all absolutely spot on! Service was great too and this is a definite must go to place in the area!

nice, but kinda sterile. service seemed good, but the standard beers were very average. a few of the specialties were better, but still nothing exceptional.

Mark nailed it when he listed the scene as yuppies and mall shoppers... although he neglected to mention the occasional beer geeks like us. Plenty of room and parking with a nice island bar. The menu features the usual RB food. The bar staff is friendly and seems like they were trained in their brews. Good location, as Samís is just a few minutes away. And the beers give me hope for the place. Nothing outstanding yet, but solid. Very nice APA on tap. Iíll be stopping back.

ElGaucho, SubstanceT, RAYBOY01 and I stopped in for a quick one after leaving Emmettís. Quite a different crowd. Almost too much eye candy for this aging sot, including a lovely mixologist who also tends bar at Lunar Brewing. She spotted RAYBOY01 and me and distanced herself to the other side of the bar!

Iíve been here several times within the last year, as I was staying at the Westin across the parking lot! It had the typical warm, Rock Bottom feel to it with a nice architectural twist (see frankenkittyís review). They seem to have 8-10 beers on at a time, and in the tradition of Rock Bottom Chicago, theyíre experimenting with barrel-aging and more exciting styles.. the regular house beers are powerfully average, but thereís potential with some of the other stuff. The food is good (I tend to like Rock Bottom food) and service is usually good, but better in the dining room than at the bar. This is a good stop.
