Stopped at Rock Bottom before catching a matinee of Avenue Q at the State Theatre next door.

We sat in the bar area - filled with high top tables and elevated booths. A lot of medium-dark stained oak.

We started with a sampler, the beers were pretty good for the most part, after we tried the possibilities, I enjoyed a pint of the Silver Mullet Oatmeal IPA.

With eight beers (seven styles) to choose from, there is something for just about everyone. Food was also good, I enjoyed the pub sandwich, the SO had a very tasty salad. If you're heading to a downtown Minneapolis event, Rock Bottom is worth a try.

This is a chain and it has a little bit of that chain vibe but overall it is not too bad and a decent place to go with a group for a beer if you are down town. The food is not gourmet but it is edible.

in Lasalle plaza we entered off of hennepin ave..the bar is very big but on the darker side A huge bar in the center is surrounded by tables and a fair amount of tv,s... lots of taps but only RB taps no guest taps. Service was good as the place was crowded food was presentable but just average bar food, the place was fun to be at lots of people and a good atmosphere..not a place or destination for me.. but a stop if you are taking in a show on hennepin, chambers.le meridian and many theaters, craft bars are nearby

A- A bit dark in the bar. There are plenty of tv's for watching Twins games/other sports. There's a pool table as well. Otherwise, seems like a general bar and grill to me.
Q- Everything was served and done well enough. No cleanliness or quality issues.
Ser- Slow but friendly service. It took quite a while for my second beer to come (longer than it should have), but everyone there is eager to help and the waitresses knew quite a bit about their rotating taps.
Sel- About 8-10 taps, of varying styles.
F- The reuban was subpar, rather bland unfortunately. The coleslaw was pretty tasty though.
Val- About 5 bucks a beer, 10 bucks for sandwich. I would go back for a beer or two, but the food didn't strike my fancy.

Atmosphere: Rock Bottom has a very nice arrangement for all comers whether you want someplace to eat or if you want the bar feel to it. The bar area is darker than I would like, but it definetly adds something to the place.

Quality: Everything I got from there was very nicely presented, and tasted very good.

Service: I had been seated in both the restaurant area and the bar area and both locations I was served very quickly and they were very prompt with refills or checking on me.

Selection: I didn't order anything off of the menu because it was the pre dinner drink stop prior to going elsewhere to eat. I did look at the menu and it appeared as if they had something for everyone. The beer selection was the same, they had a beer to accomidate everyones taste buds and gave a very good description of what the beers were.

Food: N/A (didn't eat there). However, from what I hear from people I know that have, the food is very good. I know the food I seen coming out of there looked and smelled very good. Would definetly like to try sometime.

Value: I would say it was about what I expected to pay for drinks. The growlers I ended up purchased from there were very reasonable in price and well worth it. Definetly a return visitor.
