Good beer and good food

We went here for dinner unplanned one night and were able to be seated decently quick. Their own beer flavors were good and the food was also tasty. Decent location at the end of the strip of country music bars. I enjoyed their light beer as I am a light beer drinker. A few pool tables and... read more

Our waiter was an absolute hoot. Very friendly! The beers they brew are good and our food was delish. Good diverse menu and lots of space. We had been here before when it was under other management and this new management is doing much better with it. Would definitely recommend.

Love their location in Boston. We visited the one in Nashville and it was good but not as good as boston. It was a very busy Saturday and service was spotty. Food was decent and their house brews are good. After spending a weekend in Nashville it is clear that their demographic is the younger crowd. Lots of booze and... More

We ate on the patio in February - 66 degrees. Great food and service. Location is great for ppl watching on Broadway, if you are lucky enough to eat on the patio. Beer is tasty.

Had a nice dinner here while sampling a few of the home brewed beers. Easy walking distance to downtown.

We were having a farewell party for a friend and we decided to come here. We had a group of 10 and figured it would be easier coming to a bigger restaurant/bar type place where we didn't have to make reservations. We waited about an hour, but I expected that for a Saturday night in downtown. Our waitress was awesome!... More

Had our son and daughter in law reception here for 35 people. The service was outstanding and the drink and food prices were not expensive. This restaurant is located downtown and is walking distance to any of the downtown hotels.

This is a great bar/restaurant not in the action in downtown. But, just a few blocks walking distance to Bridgestone Arena. We got there early that is key to any place in Nashville downtown area. You get there after 5 pm you will be waiting a very long time. Especially, if there is concerts and hockey going at the same... More
