I went to Rock Bottom the other day, it was a pretty cool place; the atmosphere was fun - very similar to the other Rock Bottom's I've been to. Our waiter was good, but wasn't extremely knowledgeable about beer.

The beer selection was solid with around 10 brews to choose from; the beer itself was decent, the hefeweizen, rocktoberfest, and brown ale were among my favorites (I got the 9 beer sampler), while the kolz weizen and pale ale were among the worst - the rye porter was also fairly weak.

The beer was decent but it was far too mild and lacked any complex or intriguing flavors. Rock Bottom is a pretty fun place with okay beer, but it would have been much better if the brewmaster went for more flavor (maybe like the Founders guys...).

I came here on game-day, which was overcrowded and it was hard to find a seat but that's to be expected just about everywhere so it will not factor into my rating here. There was a great selection and the prices were decent. I got the excellent Hair of the Tongue Imperial IPA and it was delicious! I in fact didn't know the ABV until I decided to check on here and it was a whopping 10.5%abv, so the beer was very well executed. The food was awesome too, we got some chicken strips that were high quality and very fresh. I would definitely recommend this great place for their selection, atmosphere, and quality. Cheers.

For 16th street this was a decent blend of craft beer and inexpensive enough food.

The beer was fine, but the food was terrible. I've stopped going to Rock Bottom because my food is never cooked properly, always overcooked. Although the selection of both beer and food are good, they don't know how to cook it.

Also, we had to wait long periods of time to order, receive drinks, and ultimately food as well.

I've been here twice, and won't go back.

Larger place, with a quality and comfortable feel. Nice out door seating and drinking area, as well a multiple bar areas in side. Didnt realize it was a chain upon visiting and staying a while, so thats gotta be a good thing.

Decent place for a bite or quality draft. On the less seedy and touristy side of 16th. Not a must visit destination, but served the purpose of an easy and enjoyable enough brew stop, upon getting to downtown Denver. More interesting spots were sought out afterwords
