The food is just okay, and it can be hard to get a table outdoors on a nice summer day. But, if you can sit outside, it is a really nice place to eat along the river.

Located right downtown on Milwaukee's Riverwalk, Rock Bottom brings good food, good craft beer and a fun festive atmosphere. With all the activities downtown close by it gets busy on the weekend, reservations are highly recommended on Friday and Saturday nights. It's close to all the Theater Venues making it ideal for a pre or post show dinner. The menu... More

I hadn't been to Rock Bottom for a really long time and was disappointed to see how much the quality of food has declined. Years ago, I would stop in with friends for a casual meal. The beer cheese bread with dip was a favorite. It's no longer served, nor is the pasta dish that used to be fairly decent.... More

Good choice for a quick meal and a local brew. Had lunch and dinner at this location and both were good. Wait staff is friendly and service is prompt.
