We booked a reservation online for 12 guests. Called to confirm, told we were good to go. Showed up and were told they were not honoring reservations and their restaurant is open seating...Clearly we could not find a table for 12, and ended up leaving....More

We went to Rock Bottom after a long day at work. Nice variety of beer and casual food, very unusual nacho presentation. Service was good even though the place was full. I had jambalaya, not like New Orleans but not bad either. Fish tacos recommended...More

My husband ordered a steak, potatoes, and rice. The steak and potatoes were to die for! I ordered a club and fries and it was very good as well! Our drinks were very tasty and the appetizer of nachos was huge! Definitely worth the money!

I stopped in here before a dinner meeting and had a seat at the bar. The bartenders were very friendly and the beer selection was full of local brews. Great place for a quick drink.

I enjoyed a hot lunch on a cold winter day at the Rock. Enjoyed a crispy chicken sandwich with fries and a house brewed IPA. And all for under $9.00! A bargain in downtown Chicago.

The beer here was so good, variety of choices. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was nice. I suggest the bacon wrapped jalepeno poppers to start!!

We were in Chicago in February 2018 and this place was right opposite our hotel so perfectly placed. Can I just say the place was extremely clean, the staff more than helpful and the atmosphere was fantastic, in fact we watched the SuperBowl whilst having...More

We were a little put off at this huge establishment. The size did not diminish the attentive service and above average food. We were fortunate enough to be sat at a high top in the front of the restaurant. The back part of the restaurant...More
