Found this place through Beer Advocate. On an 82 degree day in the early spring the patio was jammed and would have been worth the wait if we weren't famished. Sat inside where the vibe is really cool. As was mentioned, lots of beer signs and concert posters on the walls. Ordered a Duck Rabbit Milk Stout and it didn't disappoint. Ordered up the smoked chicken nachos as an app and these were incredible too. Draft menu was good and had some variety but lots of stuff that I can get all over the country. Only a few regional selections but maybe thats just how it is. Loved the smoked chicken so much I got the smoked chicken tacos and a few more Milk Stouts. Our server, Haley, didn't seem all that interested in us and actually appeared rude at times. I get the hipster attitude but she played it on a little thick and that was the only thing taking away from the experience. Also, the tall dude who brought our first round to the table could handle a retake of friendliness 101 class. Next time in Nashville, I will try to return and hope for a smile or two and some kind words from my server. (1,109 characters)

We had lunch here while visiting Nashville. This place is in a cute little neighborhood that reminded us a lot of places we've been to in Portland, OR. Small with a large patio, decor is rustic with stickers on walls and weird art posters. Comfortable and casual. Service was friendly but reserved. Seat yourself. I had the BLT and it was really good. Others had the pulled pork burrito which was great and the Pork Bon Mei sandwich which was ok. Veggies weren't pickled. Beer selection was a strong 3.5 but could use some improvment. Value was very reasonable. I liked this place and would return. (598 characters)

Best bar/restaurant we found in Nashville. The bar is located a couple of miles from downtown in the 12 South neighborhood. Not sure what goes on there but the bars and restaurants sure were packed on a Happy Hour Monday. Dining room has a bit of an overly bright cafeteria feel at this time of day.

We got two stools at the bar and with quick friendly service had a beer in hand right away. A couple dozen taps or so, almost all craft with a nice selection of local and regional brews.

Food was a big hit. Really good quesadilla was my highlight along with a tasty pita dip. Food was well paced and delivered quickly.

All in all a very enjoyable experience. Wish it was closer to downtown but I am sure the regulars don't.
