Visited over the holidays

I only had time for one bar in Nashville, so I picked the Broadway Brewhouse based on its location and the comments of other reviewers that they carry locals. The atmosphere is ok - very appropriate for Nashville, with lots of wood, big booths, tables and a packed bar. It was a bit rowdy for our visit, so don't go expecting a calm evening

The beer selection was also just ok at best - prob 40-50 taps, but half of them are crap with a handful of locals (Yazoo, Jackelope, etc) and some bigger micros like Schlafly and New Belgium. Not the deepest menu, but I was happy to try a few local beers. The quality was not very good - my girlfriends beer showed signs that it had been through dirty lines, and all beers were served cold and in pints. This is not a craft beer establishment, it's a bar that serves craft beer.

Moving on to things that I hoped could redeem the place as worthy of my limited time. The service was also kinda "meh" - kind of short with us, throwing silverware, etc but it's something that I chalked up to the environment and the fact that it was busy. I will not however be able to find an excuse for the food - I went with a grilled cheese and chili plate seeing as I thought it fit the bar and the outside weather. My meal was extremely mediocre, and it's a combination of lower-quality ingredients and the lack of any attempt to spice it up.

As I'm sure you have figured out, I was pretty disappointed. I'll probably try to check out other places next time I'm in town, but if I do come back, I'll stick to drinks.
