Chill spot in Uptown Whittier. There are other bars and restaurants in the area but I keep coming back here. Amazing selection of beer, delicious food, good service, a couple TVs inside and a few tables outdoors. Overall fun place to hang with friends.

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!

This is a great drive worthy burger beer bar in Whittier. Great food and great beer on tap. This is the first beer pub to have the likes of abigaile's, kinetic, and haven in recent months. Pliny the Younger day is a must every year. You can check out their current tap list on beermenus or taphunter. They currently have allagash fluxus 2013, enjoy by, and few pumpkin beers.

Knowledgeable staff, and good crowd.

I love to come here. It is a little pricey, so its one of those place where you look forward to enjoying once in a while.

The taps are always good. They've had Pliny on almost every time I go, and if not, their flights make up for it. The bottle list is extensive and pretty damn good. They host events here for LA Beer Week with some pretty big names and they also get Pliny The Younger.

Food is great. The chef always creates courses inspired by what they have on tap and they are always very tasty.

This restaurant is fantastic!!! They have an amazingly broad selection of high-quality beers to choose from, whether you're searching for a lovely sour ale or a refreshing saison, you can count on Bottle Room to deliver. The food is SPECTACULAR and the happy hour specials won't break the bank. Tony is a culinary master whose burgers, salads, beer-battered onion rings and homemade spicy barbecue sauce will make you an instant regular. Save room for the bread pudding... just trust me on that one.

Great food, including excellent burgers and small plates that goo good for food. Great beer selections, with the drafts focusing on domestic craft beers. The bottle selection branches out into more foreign beers. However, beers change so rapidly that you cannot going expecting anything. I guess this is nice that you branch out, but sometimes there is not even a basic IPA on tap (rare, but still). Service is very friendly, but can get a bit slow if you have table service. There is a small lounge/coach area in back for gatherings.

I came to this place on a Saturday night after coming from another city after having dinner. Finding parking on a weekend night in Uptown Whittier can at times be a pain. So if you are not from this area, good luck. When I came into this place I was really digging their patio area in the front of the restaurant, had a very Hollywood cafe vibe. When I found a place to sit near the bar I was immediately greeted by a server who was ready to get our orders. The only problem is, I arrived a few minutes before 10pm and they already were having last call. My party was able to get 1 round of drinks then had to close out. Their pint prices were okay, some of the bottled beers were very overpriced. However due to rarity of the bottles, I wont knock them for it. I would definitely go back, but I would have to go early.

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.

Stopped in here after work last week as I was leaving a job site in Whittier.

Located in downtown Whittier (a surprisingly cool place), this has a very upscale feel to it. A nice list of American craft beers on-tap as well as some imports. That said, nothing too out of the ordinary.

The one downside of this place is the pricing. The draft beers are all about $7 or $8 a pour, which is a bit rich for my blood. At least the staff was friendly and prompt, though.

I didn't eat anything, but people seemed to be enjoying the food they were being served, and it looked appetizing.

I might stop in here again, but I would think twice about it with their prices.

The bottle room is located on what I would descrbe as a cross between an oldtown main street, or a small industrial strip from the 40's. Basically the street has character, and the bottle room fits in with that. A bit more trendy and hip then say 6740 across the street, but still a clean, and well organized place.

Service was good, sat at the bar, and they had just opened. Nice tap selection, over 20, as well as a lot of bottles for sale as well. They had a limited food menu that day, and what they had was pretty tasty, but small portions, and bit pricey, more like tapas or appetizer style food, hence the value.

Was there one time as well when we had a flight of the Bruery's christmas beer series, Partridge in a Pear tree, two turtle doves, barrel aged two turtle doves, and Three French Hens. Patrick Rue showed up dressed as Santa Claus (and I mean the full getup, head to toe) pretty cool if you ask me.

There was some media promotion interviewing Jonas I think too, for an online blog, name escapes me though. Anyhow, a good spot in the area.
