If you're looking for something that is not a typical bar joint, this place has excellent beer and ambience. Very nice. Worth stopping into.

We had initially heard good things about Rockbottom but when we got there we quickly realized it was just about the beer. We enjoyed sampling the different beers they are good quality. When we ordered food we ordered a steak dinner. For the price which was quite high you would expect good quality, but our steak came raw. Ordered medium... More

The peanut butter burger was excellent. Watch out it is messy! They make their burgers onsite- fresh and juicy. Good service.

Wide variety of items to choose from and the food is always hot and tasty although the service is sometimes spotty. Burgers are real good and cost about $12 to $14.

I love craft beer so a visit to Rock Bottom was de rigueur! I was joined by two friends and we enjoyed the beers. Unfortunately, the burger I had orderd for my meal was not good. It lacked flavour...almost like cardboard. And it was at best warm. Thankfully the beer was good. The food? Not so much!

We had an evening of local beer, wing and nachos. It was a real Pub night. The craft beer was excellent. This is a great spot with lots of character.

Went for a lunch time midweek getaway. Fabulous atmosphere and educated friendly staff. All their burgers are ground in house and never frozen. If you want to try the most delicious and mouth watering burger in Halifax, than this is the place to go.

We ate here for the first time last summer. We enjoyed it, returned again. Decent variety, they didn't overcook the GF pasta, and my pad Thai was very tasty.☺
