This is a pretty decent place to have some drinks and snacks. My boyfriend and I always get the flight and then order the biggest glass after. They also have pretty good happy hour. We got a huge plate of nachos for around $7. Affordable and decent.

This was a pretty decent brewery, but it all depends on what you want out of your brewery experience. I've seen the upscale brewery type pubs that are dimly lit, filled with dark wood, and serve high end food such as truffle fries and so on. I've also been to the very industrial brewery type, here in Chicago actually. Goose Island. I've been to a few others as well in Sonoma County that are very classic and filled with wood. Definitely not kids places, but not super fancy. Rock Bottom is like a Brewery version of Chile's. This might sound like an insult, but I mean it in the sincerest way possible. It's casual, good selection of beer, decent selection of food, (although I am disappointed that they did not have a French Dip!) and is a decent experience. I ordered the Club Sandwich as well as the Pulled Pork Sandwich. Club was pretty good, no complaints. Pulled Pork- tasty, but I've had better and I felt like it was missing something. Definitely not a bad sandwich! Service was great, swift, and staff was friendly. This place was a good spot and since it was just down the way from our Hotel, I can't complain about pub food that is easy to get to. I could definitely see coming back again.

The nachos were great. The service was horrid. Our waitress treated us as if we were a burden. She would wait upwards of 30 minutes before coming to check on us. Forget about filling our drinks. Her attitude made us feel very unwelcome. Couldn't get out of there fast enough. Mostly because she took so long to take care of our table. The Nashville location is much more welcoming.

Big menu & good selection of in house beers. Family friendly. Big space with lots of TVs, they will put anything on the TV for you. Gets pretty busy on weekends, but you shouldn't have to wait more then 30 minutes.

I probably had the best pizza in Chicago at this place. Maybe my expectations were very low when I visited for a late night snack whilst drinking with my friends. However, that "el diablo" pizza is amazing. The chorizo was excellent, ingredients were fresh, pizza dough was good. Very well done! pun intended.

Rented the top room out for a engagement party. Prefect discs for such an event. There was a good flow of people moving around and a pool table for those who wanted to party. The beer selection was also very good, the sour on tap was delicious.

Really good beer, with good food and good service. Plenty of tvs to watch games on.
