We stayed at the Westin, just across the construction zone called Fountain Square from the Rock Bottom. I ate there twice (one lunch, one dinner) and one other time for drinks. The beers are average, with the exception of two seasonals, the Catcher in the Rye (you guessed it) rye ale, and a Vienna Lager, both of which I found to be flavorful and fresh. I thought the Irish Stout was decent, but the others I tried (Tall Stacks bitter, the brown ale, and a pale ale) were just average. The atmosphere was average, the service was good (and I say this b/c I forgot my receipt, and when I went back later they looked it up and reprinted it for me--otherwise average)
I had a burger for lunch, and it was average, and the rack of ribs I had for dinner was better-than-average. The menu is of varied items, but I imagine is the same menu chain-wide (it's been a while since I've been to the one in Boston). As the only brewpub in town, it is worth a visit, but I can't say it was fantastic.

This is not for beer geeks looking for rare or over the top selections but for groups just looking for fun. There were seven beers available, all of which were text book for the style but otherwise unremarkable. The food selection is definitely restaurant quality but all four in our group stated the meal was just okay. The aesthetic was excellent and though our waitress wasn't versed in the finer points of ales, she was extremely helpful, punctual and pleasant. I enjoyed my time at Rock Bottom and would definitely hit it up again.
