This is a pretty decent RockBottom. I’ve usually been there at off hours so I’ve never had an issue with waiting or finding a good place to sit. The food is pretty decent and the beers are solid, if unspectacular. Good place to bring the family.
More or less an average Rock Bottom, the bartender was very much on the ball and more experienced than most locations. A decent sized bar. Decent light coming inside, this is a medium sized restaurant compared to the big chains. The beer was better than average, although the selection was a bit less. Craft beer drinkers have way too much competition to hang out there, but was worth a stop as I was in the area.

I do have some fond memories of swilling at this place after Algonquin Theatre Co. shows. The waitstaff is very tolerant of two dozen screaming, emotional actors just commandeering the patio. Food is what you’d expect at RB. Beer is slightly less. They tend to run out of things that aren’t pale, light or gold. Not the most experimental jewel in the franchise.

Overall this is a good place to go for food & locally crafted beer that is always good, sometimes great, and rarely a bad experience.
Food is consistently of good quality and service from the more veteran wait staff is quite good. Newer staff can be horrible.
Seasonal offerings are above average. Regular selection is above average as well. The Pale Ale is actually an American IPA. The El Hefe is good for a local hefe.
Good place to get into on a busy Saturday night when many other places have an hour waiting list.
It’s unfortunate that they continually change the menu and drop items that we love, and add new items that disappear within months because they sell so poorly.
I didn’t like this Rock Bottom as much as the one in Scottsdale or even, Desert Ridge. They did have one seasonal there that I hadn’t had yet. When we were there, they had a guy playing guitar. He was pretty good. However, it was so loud that you couldn’t even take to the people at your table.
