My wife and I always make it a point to swing by for at least one beer when we trek to Philly for the weekend. Rock Bottom has solid brews, good specials and a comfortable, clean atmosphere that is conducive to kicking back and enjoying a beer or three.

We've been at the KOP brewpub on several occasions recently, and they always seem to have good specials. They have a daily happy hour that features $3 brews and appetizers, which is definitely a favorite among regulars, because it is typically packed. Even more popular seems to be the $2 draft day, which occurs every Thursday. Yup, drafts are only $2 each! They have an awesome mug club that is FREE to join, and you automatically get upgraded to a 20-oz. mug when you order a beer. Each time you visit, you acculumate points that you can redeem for Rock Bottom swag. They even send regular emails out, including coupons and specials for Mug Club members. The last time we went, we each got $10 of free food and drink... just for being members!

At any rate, their beers are also pretty solid. While I've never had my mind blown by any of their offerings, pretty much everything I've had here has been solid. The have a nice line-up of flagship brews, and complement these five standards with rotating dark beer, brewer's reserve and cask selections.

Overall, the brewpub is quite spacious and, at times, impersonal, but we typically sit at the bar, where we always get top-notch service that is friendly and quick. I would even go so far as saying that some of their bertenders are among the best with which I've come into contact.

Rock Bottom's KOP brewpub is a short detour off I-76 if you are heading into Philly, and is located right in the KOP Mall. I definitely recommend stopping in (especially during one of the aforementioned special times) for a few brews. And don't forget to join the Mug Club!

I have eaten here quite a few times now and have never had a bad experience. The food is very good from their burgers to their pretzels, to their different chicken dinners.

The beers on tap are always changing. I have had quite a few beers from them and must say I havent had one I dislike yet. They have growlers available to take home if you enjoyed a specific beer and are reasonably priced.

Atmosphere here is outstanding. Very good service every time I have been and a very clean and orderly place.

Highly recommend if you are in the mood for good food and a few good beers.

I met a friend here on sunday afternoon for the phillies game. I had never been here before. The whole atmosphere of the bar and restaurant is very nice and relaxing. I sat down at the bar and was able to see many tv screens anywhere i looked.

They have a wide selection of beers on tap, and the ones i tried were very good. They also have a mug club card ,which my friend told me to get. Joining the club gives you automatic upgrades on beer and they also send you free stuff for your birthday.

The menu had a huge selection of food and all of it looked very tasty. Alas, I held back for I was on beer drinking mission. My friend said all of the food is very good. The prices seemed like normal restaurant prices.

Overall I was very impressed with the place. I am not from around the area, but found out there is one in Pittsburgh, so I know I will be checking it out when I am in town. Definite a good play to get together with friends or grab some beers.

Went to Rock Bottom R and B last night and it's a pretty good place as far as chain R and B's go.

First off it's a huge place divided into two sections really: there is the sports bar side and the dining room side.

The dining room side has no tv's and that forces you to talk to your wife and kids.
The sports bar side, the side our party sat in, is smaller and cramped, but loud. There was a phillies game on so of course it's going to be croweded.

It's a sit your self and we found a pretty good table so we could root on our beloved phightin's.
Service was slower, it was a Saturday afternoon in a mall so patience is required.
I had two beers, one was a casked porter and the other was an IPA.
The porter was rich and sweet, dark like the night. It was casked so it was mellow and smooth.
Flavors were predominatedly of chocolate malts and roasted malts.
the IPA was excellent point blank.
It reminds me alot of Blind pig. They had two IPA's there the other was west coast style which I figured was a DIPA.
I would definitely go back for the beer. The food was just average and really would not waste my time going back. Instead I would use that money for a local place that uses local ingredents, money well spent.

Sure RB is a semi-chain, but it's still a cool place to go to once in a while. The one at King of Prussia mall is the only one I've been to, and it makes for a convenient shopping stop for lunch and a brew. Several tasty beers to chose from, even if nothing too extreme, and there are generally a good rotation of seasonals and stouts. Food is very good. Good burgers. They have a free mug club that gets you discounts, bigger beer mugs at the bar, and other various paraphernalia. Sportsbar-ish atmosphere, and the staff is generally friendly and attentive. Much like Heartland Brewery, I wouldn't imagine that fanatic beer enthusiasts would be too ecstatic about this place, since they make their own beer and don't serve anything else. But I still like it once in a while. Plus you can walk it off in the mall before driving home. (Just don't end up buying a lot of random stupid sh*t like I did once.)
