Funny how the required rating fields for a place can be misleading. In this case, the Bottle Room ranks high in several key areas; quality service, selection, and food.
Then, you get to that tricky final category - value - which undoes most of the good ratings in the other categories. In other words, the beer list is extensive and food pretty good, but the prices? fuhgettaboutit!
An example is the $5.99 that I paid for a bomber of Stone Belgo Imperial Stout Anise, which at the Bottle Shop costs $14. DISCLAIMER: True, a triple mark up from wholesale is pretty standard for restaurants that serve wine. I guess I'm a Cheap Charlie when it comes to triple mark ups and that goes double for beer!
That said, if you're a person accepts the 3x concept, the Bottle Shop is pretty decent. We had the Chorizo flatbread and it came back hot, cheesy and savory.
The beer selection is well represented - an array of decent Belgians, local breweries and beermakers from the eastern seaboard.
They do have Happy Hours where the tap prices are dropped $2 bucks.

Came here some months ago and tried some local beers that were being tapped. I didnt go inside since I had gotten a table outside but the interior seemed decent but looked like it can get packed pretty quick in its small space. I ordered food and paired it with the beers but I honestly shouldve came back either during happy hour or somewhere else after I realized how much I paid for all the beers I tried. It can be a bit pricey but I guess when youre dining out, you gotta fork it out. Service wasnt that great but it wasnt bad either. I like uptown whittier, but Id rather just drive to 38 deg or better if Im looking to try beers.

The food and beer is a bit pricey but well worth the cost, Love this place! I've lived in Whittier all my life, 57 years (yes I'm an old fart) and I absolutely love going to The Bottle House every chance I get. The selection of beers and food rotate so it never gets boring, never had anything I didn't like. If you haven't been here, you really must!
