The food was amazing. Our host was Andrew and he served us well, informed us of the great food here. I highly suggest rock bottom for many.

We stumbled on this place by chance but my wife and I really enjoyed a few hours here. I loved the tasters of their various ales and quickly realised that their IPA was my favourite. Great nibbles, especially the salted pretzels, not at all all like the ones we get in UK. If you like a friendly atmosphere and good... More

We were wandering round the Gaslamp area looking for somewhere casual to eat. The Rock Bottom looked welcoming so in we went. Served by Alex, a nice young guy. We had a really great meal. Salmon with a Bourbon glaze was excellent, and my Husband had a great steak. All in all a very pleasant evening, in a lively atmosphere... More

New to the San Diego area, I went looking for a local microbrewery last night in the Gaslamp District of Downtown San Diego. Didn't take me much looking before I came across Rock Bottom Brewery at about 5:30pm. Waitstaff was friendly and prompt. Place was boisterous and lively without being noisy or loud; was cool, hip, and had a comfortably... More

We had to wait for a table here, but I don't remember it being very busy. When we did get seated, the service was good (we had a lovely waitress who was knowledgable about all the beers available). There is a wide variety of beer, and every one I tried was great. The food was good, but the beer is... More

If you want pretty good beer, and consistency, you'll enjoy yourself here. There is good variety on the menu.

We haven't been to a Rock Bottom in a while but try to visit whenever we're in a town with one. I earned my Rock Bottom vest going to the La Jolla venue every week for three years, and it is noted when I visit elsewhere. The food and beer are very good, tailored for the climate and populace.
