My wife and I stopped into this brewpub to find a respite from the loudness and rowdy crows of lower Broadway. We sat at the bar, and shared an appetizer and a couple of pints. The atmosphere was open and clean. The beer was okay, and the food was average, but with huge portions. I really liked the brown ale on cask. Typical chain brewery, but worth a stop for a quiet and tastes pint.

Visited with a large party during vacation to Nashville.

Sat on the roofdeck on a thankfully not so steamy summer evening. Great view of river and action on Broadway.

For beers - had the special IPL which was clean and spot-on (trademark of RB beers) & a decent Porter.
Enjoyed a very tasty large Cobb Salad, all fresh ingredients.

Waiter was awesome, put up with a lot of special requests and split checks without a huff.

Definitely worth a stop if visiting the Broadway area.

Went here for a late drink and appetizers. I found it to be packed, but the service was good and the prices were CHEAP! I got a flight and it was like $6. Their beers were pretty bland and this place is a chain from the Midwest. If you are staying in the Franklin/Cool Springs area it is worth a visit.

The fifth and final brewpub I landed in during my time in Nashville was quite unexpected. We were in town for a wedding and I was invited out with the groom and some of his high school friends while my wife and the other ladies got their nails did. We ended up going to a Rock Bottom in the heart of downtown, which I wasn’t even aware existed.

Being downtown, the location is pretty swanky. Sure, it’s touristy, but if touristy means high ceilings, beautiful wood and a rooftop bar, sign me up for touristy. It’s a pretty standard large restaurant in the heart of a major downtown tourist destination, which means it’s nice.

I had already stuffed myself full of a mediocre buffalo burger at another brewpub for lunch, so I didn’t have any food here. Some of the things others ordered included shrimp and grits, ribs and a gigantic chicken nacho plate. Everything looked pretty tasty and pretty high on the chain-tourist-trap-restaurant spectrum.

I wished I hadn’t eaten at Blackstone.

The beers were pretty solid. They came with the standard color spectrum of blonde, pale, amber, hefe, IPA, stout, etc. But they also had a few seasonals that you don’t find every day, like a red rye IPA and a maibock, both of which were superior to their standard lineup.

That’s the way it goes with most Rock Bottoms and other brewpub chains I’ve found. Don’t scare away the not-yet-converted-to-craft drinkers by offering a lot of mild standard brews but offer a couple of more interesting options in the rotating draughts.

As for the service, it was a little bubbly at times and a bit much, but overall he did a great job. Large tables are never easy to accommodate.

Oh, and one of the characters on the wall representing (I guess) a label for one of their beers had the worst case of ball chin I’ve ever seen.
