For the best beer and food combination Boscos is the place in Nashville. They do an excellent job for brewery food and their beers are better than most micro breweries in Nashville. Serves one of the only fresh hopped beer in the area. Should be a standard for any beer aficionado Well done Boscos... well done.

Craft microbrewery, so a bit more pricey than some other options; however, you get what you pay for. Great beer, great service, and their food flies under the radar. Convenient Hillsboro (Nashville) location. Cozy setting, big tables near the rear for mid- to large-sized dining groups, smaller tables up near the bar.

This place is a chain (the other locations are in Little Rock, Memphis, and another somewhere near Nashville, I think), and as such doesn't have much of a character of its own, in my opinion. The food is the real draw, if any, as there are some relatively tasty options on the menu (though, at the same time, there are some overpriced and otherwise disappointing options, too -- I'm looking at you, fish sandwich).

The service might be the low point. My experience at the bar showed a clear divide -- there are regulars, and then there's everyone else. The bartender didn't have any beer knowledge anyway (described the flaming stone beer as "sorta like an IPA"), but it still would have been nice to be able to get a beer between his long conversations with some of the other patrons.

As for the beers, nothing is going to blow you away, IMO.

A - Its nice rectangular shaped room with a bar as you walk in on the right with a small bar-seating area. The rest of the brew-pub is seating for dinning. Decor is nice but very forced. You can see the brewery on the far side of the establishment through a small window. Not my favorite place but went mostly for the company.

Q - Pretty average. Limited numbers of brews that were pretty standard, APA, IPA, Pilsner, etc.

S - Our waiter knew very little about the brews and seemed either to be new or tiered of serving patrons. This might have been because we came in after the lunch rush, but still.

F - Food was a bit better. I had a very good Pollo Diablo pizza that was tasty and spicy.

Overall the place is a chain and offers something different to Macros but not the best.

A very clean and nice interior, but still a chain brewpub.

It wasn't really packed on a saturday, so we had a chance to check everything out. They had plenty of beers on the sampler, but there wasn't anything that really stuck out. It seemed like they had found their recipes and were sticking with them.

The service was average. They didn't pay too much attention to us even though there weren't that many people in bar area.

The parking was pretty tight in the back of the building and we felt that there were better brewpubs to give our money.

I was on a business trip to Nashville from NC, read some good BA reviews for this place. It was close to my hotel so I checked it out for dinner. Good news first (such as there is). I like the decor and atmosphere of the place and the food was fine (had the shrimp n grits). Now to the most important part, the beer. Oh man. Where do I start. I ordered the IPA. What was delivered to me was a beer with no head whatsoever (looked like a glass of iced tea). Obvious carbonation issues. The waitress said the bartender was having problems getting my friends beer to pour but that there was nothing wrong with my beer. Hmmmm. I tasted it. It was completely uncarbonated (no it wasn't the Cask beer that night). I told the waitress there was something wrong with my beer. She said no it was fine. Didn't offer to replace it. I choked it down. I asked another waiter if near zero carbonation was the indended brewing style of the brewer, he had no idea. I don't think he knew what carbonation was. The hops and malt used in this beer tasted disgusting. No refreshing hop aroma, no citrusy, piney taste, nothing but a vague bitterness and regret for ordering it. My friends said their beers (The Pilsner & Porter) were unimpressive but not vomit inducing like the IPA. I don't know what you BA's have been drinking but if you give this toilet water beer high ratings you need to get to the store asap, get yourself a sixer of Bells Two Hearted and LEARN!!!
