The food here is amazing and they have a great selection of beer. My favorite part of this restaurant/bar is the outdoor seating right on the Milwaukee River.

Rock Bottom has something for everyone! The drinks are great. I love the mac & cheese, burgers and fried cheese curds. You can't go wrong. Everything on the menu is delicious.
