A buddy told me the beer here is average and he was right. Stopped in here for a beer during happy hour yesterday. Got the amber ale. It was average. A little watery and carbonated. Wife got a rasberry iced tea--it was terrible. Waiter took 20 minutes to come back and check on us. There were other waiters who were paying more attention to their customers. Nice place though and a good patio scene. Didn't try the food.
Great selection on in house crafted brews...0.
The Red is by far the best on house, but the Dirty Bird is exceptional. It is their IPA Fallon placed in Wild Turkey Barrels reaged and the dry hopped... Wow this is unique in taste and body. I also had the Bourbonzolla Burger another wow best I've had INS while a sensual delight.
I come here a lot on Friday nights in the summertime. They have live music out on the patio. Arrive before 5pm if you want a table under the covered patio. They serve a full menu under the covered patio, but the extended patio has only a limited menu of hamburgers and simple chicken sandwiches and such. Rock Bottom no longer does the tokens for free parking, but they do validate parking--bring in your parking ticket and your waitress will stamp it--it's good for all evening. This place gets a good crowd of a wide range of ages. At lunchtime on weekdays, it can be tough to get a table, but a hidden gem is the rear bar room with the pool tables--there are often empty bar tables with full lunch service, and since the whole bar is now non-smoking, it's fine to sit back there.
An ever-popular spot for consistently good meals and top-notch craft beer.. In Short Schmoozing singles and couples, families and downtown residents all call this home--as well as plenty of tourists and beer fiends. Pregame diners and lunch crowds score appetizers and sandwiches. Entrees include adobo-crusted pork loin, dusted with piquant pepper and spice. The New York strip and other beefy items are grilled to order. House-brewed suds delight--lighter beers please mainstream drinkers, while the brown ale and stout excite craft-beer fans.
This place is treats like the bottom..
What can I say; a quote from a Showtime series would be an appropriate start stating "sometimes I like to be the bottom." Certainly describes the attitude of this place. Not only are the prices confusing, but the atmosphere will certainly get your bottom, and after their done with your "bottom", they won't even want to marry you. The greasy hamburgers, the stale beer and the lazy waiters, certainly this place lives up to its name as the bottom of the rock.
Mmmmm . . . beer..
The Rock Bottom has some of the best microbrewed beer in downtown Denver. Every day there is a different "beer of the day" that is only $2.50 per pint. I have tried most of the offerings on the menu, and they have all been good. I am not a big fan of their desserts, though. All in all, the Rock Bottom is a very enjoyable place to have a good meal and a great beer.
