We had lunch at the Rock Bottom Restaurant on 1/15/18. The beer flight was great and the $5 dollar lunch specials were tasty. My daughter had the pretzels and she loved them.

The Rock Bottom is a consistently good place. Portions of food are quite large and really good. Beer is good, and prices are not bad. A dependable, fun, good place to eat.
