The convenient downtown location was our primary motive to visit and it kinda met our expectations as a typical Rock Bottom, albeit I was expecting a bit more differentiation from the Seattle branch. It is of course huge and the food was decent, typical for the chain, but with a menu going beyond basic pub fare. Pretty predictable beer list with little going outside modern comfort zones, but everything being clean.

I’m used to seeing these in CA and didn’t realize we had one in Seattle. For some reason I had higher expectations and the place fell a little flat. They were out of 2 of their main 6 or 7 beers on tap. She was nice enough to let us sample (very decent sample BTW) the porter and white. Nothing too exciting. I ended up going with their Red Ale since I ordered the Baja Chicken sandwich. The Red was above average. Nice color, great lace. A little under average on mouthfeel but good flavor for a red. My wife ordered the Bourbonzola Burger. It was rich and the dipping sauce was excessively sweet. My sandwich was ok. Not much avocado and the lettuce was super fine chopped like stuff you buy in the bag. The onion rings were thick and good. I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to return but wouldn’t put up a fight if everyone else in the group voted for it. Take it or leave it kind of place for me.

(Visited 03/2013): Rock Bottom Seattle is located downtown on 5th Ave in a shopping plaza, with the entrance on the upstairs level.

The interior is large, with multiple rooms including a banquet hall. There is also a patio out front. The bar is in the center and offers a view of the brewing equipment.

As with most Rock Bottom establishments, the tap selection is around 8 with most being the year-round offerings plus a seasonal or two. Pretty standard styles, and the quality is consistently average to above average with nothing standing out either way.

Service at the bar on a slow weekend afternoon was pretty good. The bartender was knowledgeable about their beers and attentive.

Food at Rock Bottom is similar at the locations I have visited. Our sandwiches were decent.

Overall Rock Bottom Seattle is maybe worth a stop if you are walking by, but with all the great beer spots in and around downtown I would not go out of my way to visit again.

Nice place with 8 taps of their own stuff. I had 6 samples for $4.50 which I found cheap.

Really crowded but big pub. Very busy on Friday afternoon. Decent selection of own beers on tap. OK prices. Some of the staff members liked what were doing some doesn’t.

The familiar and unexciting. An Applebee’s that brews the sort of beer you’d expect from such a place.

06.11.2008. A nice brewpub with a good selection of beers. We were in a hurry to get to the airport and desided to grab a burger and a beer. The vaitress had all the time in the world and was realy slow. But, the beer and the burger was nice!

Quite large for a brewpub. Nice patio with tables outside (more or less because it’s inside a mall or something). Friendly staff but not very knowledgeable about the beers. The food was great and way too much. Quite some beers on tap. Bit posh place but in this case ok. I don’t like all the TV screens but that’s standard in the USA as far as I’ve seen.

your typical brew bar, reminds me of a TGIF, Ruby Tuesdays, or a Applebees. there was a ball game on at the time and the video was in HD, while the audio was in analog, so you got the 10-20 seconds delay from the sound to the picture. service was okay, the server wanted to make sure she got a tip, "you don’t want any change back, right?" and seemed to be a little pushy on wanting us to eat. selection was only their brews, about 8 of them, and they did not offer a sampling of any. overall was not that impressed, and the beer was average at best.

Visited on vacation. Felt like a cookie cutter bar. They had a good selection of their own beers on tap, none of which were particularly good. Meh.
