I have been here several times over the years and have always had a good time. I did not eat here this time, so my rating is just based on the bar. However, the food I saw looked pretty good and had a good smell.
They have a decent tap list and a good bottle list. They can also mix a good shot and the service seemed to be on top of things even though the place was packed. There is a pool table upstairs that always seems to have a good game going.
Be aware that they really check IDs. They check them on the way in and at the tables. They are real strict that no ID equals no drink, even if you are 40. That actually is how Tennessee law is written. I saw someone get thrown out because he did not have an ID and his wife let him drink her beer. They both had to leave and by law that is correct.
