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.

Broadway Brewhouse is a great place for beer lovers to check out. Whether you are beginning a night out in downtown Nashville or attending a concert or Preds game, it is a good place to go for dinner. It is on the edge of the entertainment district of Nashville. The brewpub has a great selection of beer on tap, including many small local breweries such as Mayday and Jackalope. The brewpub also loves spicing up bar favorites with jalepeno pepper but usually paired with a sweet sauce to cut the heat.

The wife and I stopped here on a recent vacation.

Atmosphere: First of all, if you're in downtown Nashville and you're looking for craft beer, the location is money! Located right in the heart of a long strip of restaurants/bar featuring country music entertainers who are trying to make it big. On the inside, there is a dark, rustic, saloon sort of atmosphere, but maybe that's just Nashville. I dug it!

Quality and Service: We sat at the bar and the waitress was very attentive to our needs. The food and beer selection was top notch.

Selection: I figure there were about 30-40 taps here (but who's counting?) with lots of local stuff (Yazoo, other Nashville entries + others) with the macros at one end, and the craft selections about 5 beers deep from the right hand side.

Food: Man, both my wife and I really dug the pulled pork we had. We didn't taste anything aside from that, but that was enough to win us over.

Value: Compared to where I'm from (DC), this place was a steal. I'd say about $4-5 bucks a pint, depending on the brew.
