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.

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.
