Rock Bottom Brewery Review

Your experience at the Brewery will all depend on the night you choose to visit and time. Weekends are packed full of patrons, especially during any type of sporting event game because there are multiple televisions around that show the games. This particular night was a good night to visit, we were able to be seated right away and had the option of sitting in the bar area or the regular seating area. One of the first things that I noticed was that the music was not playing as loudly as it had in the past, making this a much more enjoyable time since there was conversations that could be had. It still had the feel of being a bar but in the dining area it was family friendly.

Our server was at our table within minutes of being seated, not really giving us enough time to look at the drinks menu, if we had not been before then we would not have known what to order to drink. The list of drinks is not the largest list but it is quite a large list. There is a chalkboard on the wall with a list of the beers that are available, this is the rotating list, there are big signs showing some of the beers that are always available on the walls as well. 

After the initial attention our server was not very attentive and could not be found when needed. She did seem pretty knowledgeable about the menu and was able to answer questions that were asked. There was a whole menu that was dedicated to the specials of the month. This was a special in more than one way, partial proceeds from the sale of items off this menu go to local Firehouses and the items were all themed around fire.

Our food was brought out in a timely manner and was all the correct temperatures and cooked to order.  My burger was a perfect medium. It may not seem like an adventure to order a burger, but the description had the words "smoky bacon jam" and I was curious to try bacon jam. In my book, bacon jam is the best thing to happen to any burger, the only downside to this burger was it seemed to be a bit greasy.

 This club sandwich was delicious, it was warm enough to melt the cheese slightly. I don't know if it was the combination of the meats or what but this club was salty and did not have quite enough mayo for my tastes. It would not be something that I would order again.  The onion rings arrived warm and crisp and stayed crispy, until they were bitten into, then grease seemed to pour out of them.

 Pork is not something that I normally eat because every time I have had it it has been dry or overcooked and was tough. This pork chop though was moist and tender, it was delicious. What made it even better was the apple butter that comes with it. This came with an apple coleslaw that was good, but had a bit too much ground black pepper in it. The mashed potatoes were creamy and had a nice flavor to them.

We got the carrot cake to go because we were stuffed, but still wanted dessert later on.  This was a deliciously moist cake. Not too sweet almost not sweet enough to be considered dessert and could even be for more than two people.

Overall it was a great time with good food. I would recommend it to a friend and then go with them. Even with the few things that could be improved I would still return to Rock Bottom Brewery again and again.

Best part: The food, it was delicious and makes up for anything else that might have been bad.

Worst part: It wasn't that bad of a thing but a little bit more attention from the server would have been nice,  not too much more attention because then it would have been too much.
