I really enjoyed this Rock Bottom location. Decent food as usual, and very attentive service. Got to chat with the new brewery, and while heís somewhat having to stick to some of the old recipes, heís been able to do his own thing a little bit (amping up the Itasca Pale Ale, brewing one hell of a new doppelbock, and even turning out a nice porter, brown ale and Centennial IPA.) Give this place a chance, it was quite enjoyable!

Not my first choice, I used to come here a lot when I was younger and there were less beer options in the cities. Beer is decent and they have good pizza. Service was always good,

Visited at 1am on a Saturday night and found the place surprisingly busy. I could only find a spot right next to a serving station, and had to deal with being constantly jostled by servers and assaulted by the smells of cleaning fluids for the duration of my visit. The bartender was a bit slow to get to me, but he improved as things slowed down. The house beers are decent, nothing special. The highlight of everything I tried was surprisingly the IPA on cask. The condition was perfect, subtle and vibrant. It was probably the best example of cask conditioning Iíve had in the states, no joke. I have no idea whether I completely lucked out, or the staff here actually know what theyíre doing. Unfortunately, flights donít include some of their wood aged or specialty offerings, and staff didnít seem to receptive to bending the rules. Prices were OK. Overall, Iím seriously tempted to come back to this place just to see if I got lucky with their cask beer. Jesus, I miss good cask beer.

Stopped in for a few drinks prior to a wedding. A large L shaped building with a bar area on one side of the L and more traditional seating on the other. A pretty standard Rock Bottom feel. There were about 10 beers on tap with 4 being the standard RB offerings. Bartender was not too familiar with the beers as he had to check on what the barrel aged offering was. Did not have food on this visit. Prices were fine. A pretty standard Rock Bottom.

Decent place, service was good and so was the food, beer was their own but not bad. Worth going to if you are in the area.

Not sure if itís just me or if this place is hard to find. There are a couple of buildings that make up a shopping center and this is sort of hidden in one of them. Or maybe Iím the only one that had a hard time with this. Once inside itís a pretty nice place. Large restaurant and nice bar. This was my first trip to a Rock Bottom since they were bought out and consolidated some of the recipes so I tried the wit, pale, and the other generic stuff. I also tried the seasonal/rotating stuff, got a pint of IPA, and took some bottles home (all saisons).

The service didnt interact much with my end of the bar but thatís alright, they were there when I needed a drink. Did not eat. I think this is one of the better Rock Bottomís Iíve been to (admittedly only out of 9 or 10).

Beer was average at best. $6 for a flight of 6, had a pint as well. Food was solid, not too expensive. The service was pretty pathetic but that could have just been the waitress I had.

There was a friendly crowd here, though the atmosphere is just whatever, not much character, but despite being a chain brewpub they do have some decent beers, so itís definitely worth checking out after a Twins or T-Wolves game...or Prince concert at First Ave.

I liked this place. Lots of interesting house brewed beer, good food, helpful staff. Ambiance is sports bar-like. An ambiance I enjoy when mixed with good beer and food.

Stopped in and had a few samples and jokingly asked what the sample limit was, well lets just say I got a sample of every beer in the place. Had a couple awesome beers (Smoking Goat and Coconut/Chai porter) and the wings were not bad.

Finally had a chance to check this place out on 5.23.12. Had the typical RB feel, but also had some pool tables and video games toward the back. Service was solid, not anything special to mention. Prices as usual are great with the flights at $1 per 4 oz. pour. Best of the RBs I have been to as of now.
