“Closest Thing to a Pub in Nashville”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Been coming here for over 20 years, and hope for many many more. Dark, cosy wood interior with sportsman's (hunting & fishing) memorabilia on the walls, warm & inviting. They do a good job with their draft beers, have some good stuff, not just watery teenager crap. Food is consistent, outstanding red beans & rice, nice BBQ ribs, excellent salads, burgers & sandwiches are all good. Only thing bad is the fries, always limp, get the onion rings instead.
This ain't no Michelin rated chow, just good food & a good place for a drink.

“Great log cabin and fireplace everything tastes very good.”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

I love to eat here with the great fireplace and old lodge feel. Some of the best food and coldest beer in these parts.

“Always Good!”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

I go to this restaurant at least once every two weeks. The food is not very fancy but fresh, prepared well and served with a comfort flair. With the food you know what you are getting, the way you want it to be and prepared in a comforting way. Prices are excellent and the bar has great beers. The wait staff is wonderful. I love the fireplaces. This place is cozy and always a good experience.

“Great atmosphere and bar service, weak kitchen”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

The Sportsman has great, old English pub atmosphere; dark, rich wood, cozy nooks, dim lighting, appropriate art and kick-nacks. I've been here three or four times and the bar keeps are always nice folks and do a great job. The kitchen, on the other hand, is just average. I was hoping for better local/regional dishes but nothing even interesting came out of the back. There is a nice, fully shaded patio where smoking is allowed; nice when the weather is cooperating. Upstairs from the Patio is another bar and seating and poolroom.
I'll go back on a fall afternoon to watch the second half of a football game and help the winners celebrate.
