May 2006: Nice restaurant with really good food and pretty darn good beer. Friendly service. Of the three stops in Nashville, this was my favorite.

Love this place. During the week you can get cask conditioned beers every night. Bottle conditioned beers as well. Regularly over 10 beers available. 7-8 beers on draft and 2-3 in bottles. The food is great, though a little pricey. I would recommend the pizza.

Modern looking interior that tries hard to have a funky vibe to it (it helps that itís in a cool, funky area). The sampler is 8 beers for $8 and the beers are far better than any of the other local beers. The food was very good as well.

Cool little place. Food was great but not a huge menu. 8 taps going with 5 regulars and 3 seasonals. Samplers available. They bust a cast open each day at the begining of happy hour. Check the website for the cast schedule and what seasonals are available. Parking is a problem during the busy hours.

Stopped in to fray the expense account on a rainy spring Wednesday. Pretty easy to find, parking was a bit dicey, but I was able to park free and close. Near the Vandy campus. Got there at about 8:30, after the main dinner rush had gone and ate at the bar. The beer and the food here appear to be a notch better than at the Boscos Memphis location. Brandon, the head barkeep, picked right up on the fact that I was rating beers and really bent over backwards to assist me. Other wait staff would chime in from the waitress station at the bar to suggest their favorite brews and offer suggestions. Food came out very quickly. Duck spring rolls were ruthless. Friendly crowd, clean but not sterile-feeling. Well worth a stop. 8-9 Boscos fizzy taps and one or two cask handles.

Located in downtown Nashville, Boscos bills itself as "The Restaurant for Beer Lovers". Parking was pretty much street or nothing.
The atmosphere is very dim and trendy. The brewing works are upstairs and can be seen from just about anywhere in the bar. There are big hanging metallic light fixtures that do not allow much light to escape, as well as track lighting. The interior is all brick and mirrors.
The bar is pretty long and there are around 15 taps, all house draughts from the looks of it. The bartender was friendly but kind of rolled her eyes when my wife told her about my hobby. Each sample is $1. The beers were diverse, and it was actually nice not to contend with the typical "light lager" and "bland stout" found at many brewpubs. They even had a homebrew competition winner's beer in rotation.
Boscos is known for their "Flaming Stone Beer", or America's "Original Steinbier". This beer is brewed using a traditional German technique of lowering heated stones into the beer during the brewing process. The menu alludes to a "Three Star" rating for this beer from "the world's leading beer critic". I wasn't overly impressed myself, but it is unique.
We did not try the food as we had just eaten at Blackstone so I cannot comment on it. The food that was carried by looked pretty tasty though.

Nice place. Kind of a college town pub. Beers were pretty good. Food was very good. You are able to get samplers, which is great!

My after work hang-out...sometimes around noon for a cheeky pint. great staff. the beer is a bit thin and malty for me but its damned better than average. Boscos is key. Good food. I like catching the cask when I can.

Went on a Saturday night, the place was not real busy. They only have their beers, but several of them were pretty good. The food that we had was also pretty good, especially the bread pudding we had for dessert. The service was real slow, it took 10 minutes just to get the sampler.

As a native, when I go to a brewpub for beer, I go to Yazoo. But if Iím going for a meal this is my top choice. Varied menu with more choices and variety than other Nashville brewpubs. The layout is odd in that the bar is half-walled off from the restaurant, giving the bar a cozy feel at the expense of the rest of the room. Beers are solid but unremarkable, most are flavorful but not exciting. Service is generally good at the bar and mediocre in the restaurant section, though the latter could be the result of late-hour short-staffing.
