“Tasty, healthy food bucks the bar norm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Stopped here for lunch during a road trip after a friend in St. Louis recommended it. 12 South has a friendly vibe, with customers eating on the patio with their dogs beside them. The menu is plentiful and leans toward the healthy side, not deep-fried, with specials like beet-and-kale quesadilla. Great beer list, with some very good local and regional options.

“Good food and drink...poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Beer...good. Food...good. Service....eh. As an insider, I recognize trained and untrained, this was the latter. Seriously, a waiter with a cut off hoodie so all can see the copious amounts of arm pit hair. What management staff checked this guy and said.."OK" looks good to me? Send him out to be the face of the establishment. Not the 4 seasons but c'mon. Have some class. On a food note, an imbalance in portion size to the benefit of the customer. Better profit to be had but lettuce is cheap,so press on with good beer but ditch the arm pit hair please.

“Taproom 12”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Went here late evening for some snacks and beer.
Restaurant closes at 10 PM, but we were still able to get queso and chips which were good. Great beer selection.....bottles or draft. Also had a great cream soda.
Smoking permitted outside on the terrace which was a bit annoying since a group of smokers was right next to us.
But otherwise, a nice place for a beer.

“Good beer selection, few local options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Being in Nashville on a monday, finding an open location with local brews was difficult. They had a huge beer selection here but only one local beer on tap when we visited.

“Great Cob Salad! Great Beer Selection!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

While the service left a bit to be desired, the food and drink was fabulous. The southwest cob salad was the best I've had. The beer selection was very good. They had a big selection of draft, imports, high gravity, but unfortunately, no local stuff.
