Rock Bottom Brewery Restaurant - La Jolla

A lively and casual dining experience, we feature fresh, handcrafted beers brewed on premise and an innovative menu. Our beers range in style from Pale Ales and Light Lagers to Stouts, Belgian-styles and Amber Ales. We also brew many specialty and seasonal beers, all of which are handcrafted by our Brewmaster using his original recipes.

The atmosphere is rich in woods and gleaming brewing vessels. Our service is friendly and upbeat. Our moderately priced menu features a medley of items ranging from Fish and Chips to Roasted Chicken and Filet Mignon, a variety of interesting salads, and our world famous White Cheddar mashed potatoes.

"We had a table of six at a round table and it was so loud most of us could not hear each other without shouting. Otherwise it was great. Our server was new but did a great job. Very good food."

"We come here because we hardly have to wait for a table and our son LOVES to make his own pizza. Service has always been great except for 2 times out of about 10 visits there. Food is good and the atmosphere is great for kids...somewhat noisy!"

"We were meeting friends and needed a central spot near the freeway. This restaurant served the bill. The menu has a little bit of something for everyone. The burgers were great. The macaroni and cheese (not generally something we would order) also was very good. Great list of beers. It is a fun get together type of restaurant. Very similar to a BJ's."

"He had no time for us. Threw down my beer and rushed off. Everything was a rush with him. We were from out of town and wanted to get dessert to go. Walks by and throws the check. Not asking us how things are or if we wanted desert. I had to call him over and told him to slow down.
The food was awesome, just our service was terrible."

"We arrived 30 minutes early. Checked for our party of 8 and waited for everyone to arrive in the bar. At 7:00 we were promptly seated, enjoyed a nice dinner, appetizers & drinks. Completely disappointed the next day to receive an email that Rock Bottom Brewery canceled our reservation. I had to email Open Table to get that corrected."

"We arrived 30 mines early (5:00 instead of 5:30) for our reservation. The hostess was a bit flummoxed, and sat us with the caveat that had they been busy, she would have made us wait. They weren't busy and I know how reservations work, so I think we were being chastised just because. The waiter was attentive, and even though he wasn't sure the bar could handle making me a michelada (beer and Bloody Mary mix, you know, tough) he managed to pull it off. My steak was grey and my husband's chicken was the size of a game hen. Oh yes, and they had run out of vegetables. At 5:30 in the afternoon. Asiago dip was very good, as was the dessert, so not a complete loss. The bar was hopping g as we left, but the food is pretty meh. Better places to eat if food is important to you. Especially vegetables."
