Rock Bottom Restaurant Review

Last week a couple friends and I met for lunch on Fountain Square. It was a beautiful day and we wanted to eat outside but a bit windy so we sort of wanted cover...what are 3 beautiful girls to do?

We decided on Rock Bottom Brewery on the Square. It's got a great patio area that looks out on the Square and yet a roof to block us from the wind.

Katie got the chili - she was very happy with her meal. It did look pretty good - Texas style - not Cincinnati.

Danielle and I each got the Brazilian Turkey Burger (Homemade with latin seasonings, chimichurri, roasted peppers, mushrooms and onions. Topped with cheddar & pickle de gallo.)

Dani got the slaw - she said it sucked. There was no taste and no seasoning.

The burger - well she didn't finish it.

The fries were fine...they're fries.

The turkey burger was horrible. Mine was in 2-3 pieces as you can sort of tell and just tasted bad. There was no turkey - it tasted like breadcrumbs with a minuscule amount of ground turkey. The seasoning was awful. It was pretty much inedible. And the "pickle de gallo" - not good. The whole thing was dry and bad. I would have preferred a bland turkey burger over mish-mosh of bad seasoning.

Luckily - Dani brought us chocolate chip cookies to take back to work! They were fantastic and very welcome after that gross turkey burger!

  2. I'm a stick in the mud and always get a hamburger, which they do pretty good.
    They are aren't spectacular, but when you're tired or not adventurous, they are a standby with no surprises.
    (for me)

  3. I had a bad experience there recently. I'll give them a chance to redeem themselves so I won't go into what happened, but it was pretty bad.

  4. We ate there a few weeks ago. I would say the food was good but not great. Its a good place for pub grub. I will say the beers were excellent! The staff was ok. Hostess was not the brightest crayon in the box and a waitress was playing music with spoons while waiting for a dessert to be finished. When the dessert was complete, the spoons went right into the food. Gross! It wasn't my dessert or my waitress. Overall, there are a lot of places to eat in Cincinnati and next time I'll try a different place.
