We stayed at the Milwaukee Marriott Downtown and decided to walk around and find the Bronze Fonz statue. We had no problem finding it alongside the river, and we stopped for pictures of us and Fonzie giving the thumbs-up. We walked along the river and admired the old buildings, and we crossed the bridge and found the Rock Bottom Brewery.... More

Went here for a graduation dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Thought this was your typical brew pub restaurant but the food, decor, and service were above average. I tried their pizza (The Italian) while the others in our party tried variations of the enchiladas and tacos. All were vet good and served in large portions. Good selection of beers and... More

A great place to grab a beer right off the water. Food was also tasty - the quesadillas were delicious. One of many breweries to visit, but highly recommended!

Was in Milwaukee for business and tried this place one evening. Enjoyable diner with good atmosphere. This place is right on the river and has a good variety of seafood and other dishes. The service was good and the food was enjoyable. Overall, a great place to visit.

I have eaten at Rock Bottom many times and have enjoyed every meal that I have had. It's a great place to eat at (especially during the summer when you can sit outside right along the river). Nice variety of food options!

My wife and I were going to a concert at the Pabst theatre and got to Milwaukee early to get some dinner. We spotted Rock Bottom not far away and decided to check it out. It's in a great location right by the river. Inside is pretty cool. It has a warm pub feel. We both ordered steak. Both came... More

Late afternoon beer and appetizer. My friend ordered a wheat beer and I, a gluten free bottled beer. It was actually good. It had a citrus taste. We also ordered their nachos. It was a large order for two. Nice atmosphere and staff friendly. I would come back.

Not really much to say, food and prices are average. Try to use a coupon if you can, to cut the prices down. Ho hum lunches, but close by so I went here.
