I go to a fire department conference in Indy every year and this is always on the agenda.

The food is kind of upscale and a little pricey for me especially when you are in a city with various bars that have great food and great deals all day every day.

The atmosphere is fine especially when I am there as it is filled with firemen and we know how to have a good time no matter where we go!

The beer selection is also top notch, the circle city light and the Fire Chief ale are my personal favorites.

This is a great place that is a staple of Indy a MUST SEE when you visit this city.

My wife and I went here after walking around downtown Indy and deciding to stop in somewhere for a few beers. I am glad we ended up going here. We ended up having 3 beers each which were all above average quality. I had the Brown Ale, American IPA, and the West Coast Red Ale which was cask aged. My wife had the Summer, Red Ale, and American IPA.

Atmosphere was pretty dead, which is to be expected at 130pm for most places.

The bartender, Jamie, was amazing. We were the only 2 at the bar and she talked to us basically about anything. She was very knowledgeable about the beers and also gave some recommendations for activities we could do while downtown.

Price was very reasonable. We ended up getting all 6 beers for less than $30 which was a nice surprise.

Overall I would definitely recommend Rock Bottom to others. The bar was clean, service was great and the beer was high quality. I will be returning next time I'm in Indy.

Visited for lunch while on vacation in Indy. Server talked me out of my first beer choice (Porter) to try the limited release Belgian. It was good, but I wish I had stuck with my first choice. Server was very beer knowledgeable. Ordered a Kolsch for my dad, and it was unimpressive. Might as well have ordered a Bud. Food was decent, nothing special. There were four of us we all ordered something different and everyone liked what they had, but would not rush back to eat here again. This was lunch time so it was probably rush hour, but we were sitting right by the POS terminal so no excuses for not noticing my beer was empty. I would have tried another beer if the server had paid attention to us. Overall I'd rate it a meh.

Visited the Indianapolis Rock Bottom on a rainy Saturday night. We were staying downtown for a trade show and knew we could walk from our hotel most of the way to the RB without going outside in the rain.

We went to the bar and found an open high-top table. The table itself was wobbly, so it made me a little paranoid about spilling my drink. The NFL playoffs were on, so the room was lively, and a little loud. Generally clean and friendly.

At a Rock Bottom your going to have five or six standard beers and one brewmaster's special that's usually a little more interesting than the blonde ale. The special was out this visit, so I opted for the stout. It's a good irish stout, a little sweeter than a Guinness.

My meal choice was fish tacos. The tacos were good, the black beans were tasty, but the rice was crunchy. (either undercooked or really overcooked and dried out)

Our server did a pretty good job. Nothing extraordinary, but our orders were on time and accurate.

I feel like I'm damning Rock Bottom with faint praise. Really, it's good, just it's not amazing. (and it's kind of a cookie cutter thing. Not much difference from Indy, Cinci or Denver)

A: Nice open and fairly well lit. Everything looks taken care of and clean. Even when full it doesn't seem to be that loud. Nice family atmosphere.

Q: Pretty good overall. I generally think all of there beers are good and consistent.

S: Good service. Don't expect your waiter or waitress to know anything about beers though. For us the service has always been good and friendly. The last time it was a bit slow.

S: Generally speaking I think they have a limited amount of beers. Not a lot of styles represented.

F: Good stuff with a good selection. I think there is something for everyone at a place like this.

V: I think the beer and food pricing is spot on. This place is a slightly upscale chain and I think the pricing shows that somewhat.

A- this place looks very upscale and has nice decor and lighting.

Q-the quality of the food was good, the quality of the beer was just average imo.

S-promt service and waitress.. waitress Didn't have a sugestion when i asked what her favorite beer was out of 3. Which is no big deal as she doesn't like beer.

S-very limited selection.. mostly all in house brews and those are nothing to rave about

f-good food with decent service. It's not bar food but not 5 star either.. a very nice medium ground. Enjoyed the food alot.

V-food was priced very reasonable and the beer was maybe 1$ too much but can't really complain

overall this is a nice place to go have dinner with the wife of gf but if your looking for a great beer experience.this is probably not gonna do it for ya.
