simple amazing pretzels and cheese sauce. The pretzels are ginormous. The beer selections are pretty good too.
STAY AWAY – The food is awful. This used to be a great downtown Portland location to eat. We did not finish our meal it was that bad. Service was great, but until the food improves or news of a new chef airs, we will not be back again
Fun place to hang out with the girls. Not family friendly. – It's a fun place to hang with the girls (friends) after work, grab an ice cold Raspberry (F) drink. However, the food is a tad bit greasy and this is not a place I'd take a family too. Quite loud and crowded.
ROCK BOTTOM BREWERY HITS ROCK BOTTOM – Food *
This was one of several visits to Rockbottom Brewery over the past three years, but we won't be going back anytime soon. The place has really deteriorated. We sat at the bar for dinner. The game was blaring from the overhead speakers. Couldn't hear ourselves or the server. Asked the manager to turn down the speakers (live TV and commercials), but he wouldn't turn it down enough for us to be able to enjoy our meal. So, we moved to the mezzanine with the unfinished ceiling, wires hanging everywhere (probably not to code). Jambalaya terrible tiny portion of Salty, poorly seasoned rice gruel. Worst Jambalaya I've ever had (and I've had more than a few). Chicken Waldorf salad meager, dry, and paltry with mostly lettuce and little content. Cocktails weak, watered down. The manager (on his own) deducted one meal and the drinks from the bill. Kitchen staff off duty come out into the restaurant to play video gambling games. Restrooms filthy. Even though our server was cheerful and tried to "make it better" the visit was a flop. No need to return here when there are so many good restaurants in Portland that ARE making a culinary contribution. Something has gone very wrong at Rock Bottom Brewery -- we think it has hit rock bottom.
Great Brewery Beer Handcrafted on Site – Great place for a nice handcrafted Brew made on site. The "Wheat" is my personal favorite. Friendly staff, great food. Pool tables offered upstairs as well as TV's, also offers a 21 and older Bar. Don't forget to try the Chicken Genevesse Pasta and the Carrot Cake is a must for desert.
The WORST food EVER!!! – I've never been a fan of this place but it had been years since I ate here and years ago I remember it being bad. A friend had a gift card so we ate there yesterday. Not only was it cold and dreary in the place, but the chairs have to be the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat in. The food was worse than I remember. My burger was awful and very small. It seriously reminded me of dennys. No joke. There were 4 people in our party and every single entree horrible. My friend got the fish taco's (should have known better) and they tasted soooooo fishy it was unedible. I wouldn't be surprised with our economy, and how bad the food is that Rock Bottom goes under. It wouldn't surprise me at all. The place was like a ghost town. The service was poor as well.
The first time in my life I didn't leave a tip! – A few friends and I went on a slow Tuesday night and sat outside. Our waiter was horrible! He forgot our food order and never even acknowldged it. We just didn't eat. He also forgot a straw for my friend when we first arrived that she needed because she'd recently had jaw surgery. We had to get it ourself! I was so disgusted that when we left I left a note on the "tip" line on the bill- "Thanks for the food and the straw!" I won't be back anytime soon!
Watered down drinks – I went to Rock Bottom for a private party upstairs and just had drinks and one appetizer. The drinks were 50% water and a splash of alcohol. I had one lemon drop and one vodka and soda. Neither you could really taste the alcohol. Even my friends beer tasted like water! He refused to drink it and made them poor another one. I asked the waitress about my drinks and she asked if I wanted a double. No, I want my original drink to taste like it has alcohol in it! These drinks are not cheap! The service was also slow, I think they had one waitress for the whole upstairs; that is 3 separate large parties to work. We were always looking around for her.
The last time I was there was several years ago and I don't recall the drinks being watered down, so apparently they must be trying to save some money.
Super Delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – People who want to eat out with their families to eat a nice burger or a amazing salad need to come to this restaurant. It has sincere service and you can have a variety of yummy foods from a fruit bowl to a desert. I recomend for you to eat here!!. Good'Day!!
Poor Customer Service and Large Party Accomodations – We have tried twice to schedule two large parties at Rock Bottom-both times we have had to switch locations due to their ongoing lack of accomodation. They want to charge outrageous prices for minimum purchases (anywhere between $900-$1,800.00) on top of that if you want to rent out the upstairs room (which is actually the best place to put a large party in their crowded establishment) you have to tack on an extra $50 an hour! It's really unfortunate this restaurant is unwilling to host local community members wanting to use their space to celebrate with a large group. Thankfully there are other restaurants around town (Macaroni Grill and The Ram in Clackamas) who graciously and happily took our parties!
