We had dinner at the Rock Bottom before a show in the city. The location was great as it is near many theater venues, and it is right on the river. The burgers were great, service was average.

We had our son's rehearsal dinner here in a large lower level "Old Milwaukee Pub" type party room. Great food and wonderful beer. A very good time was had by all. Very reasonable pricing for the event.
