This place is different from the downtown location. It is more open with a patio and large open entrances. The clientele seems a little older here. I got great service and the beer was a decent price. Selection is pretty good. They had a variety of Stone taps and plenty of local stuff too. I had a glass of The Incredible Hop and it tasted pretty fresh. The vibe is neighborhood bar bustling with locals mostly drinking liquor or macros. Lots of TVís and classic rock on the jukebox.

Although the restaurant and bar are under one roof, you have to order and pay separately. Mojo Grill is respectable Cajun and Creole fare. The bar is a tap room/ Patio with a decent bottle and draft selection. Iíd say around 40 taps and 100 bottles, but itís only a guess.
When I first moved here to Nashville, I loved this place. Before Flying Saucer came to town, they had the best selection of taps. Service was good and bartenders were friendly. It WAS my favorite place to drink
Then the Vanderbilt students and young yuppies discoverd the place. Now it is a college hangout at night. Its gets way too crowded and the service from the bartenders is terrible. Like a college bar, you have to waive your money in the air and watch the bartenders walk right by you and serve someone who was not waiting as long. I donít go anymore
The only time you should ever consider hitting this place is AFTER the lunch crowd goes back to work. You can go in and get a late lunch and sit at the bar. If you are not intersted in food, just go to Flying Saucer. They have a bigger selection of beers and the service is much better.

Did not eat, had a few drinks in the bar area upfront. A decent number of beers on tap but mostly Newcastle, Guiness type stuff, but a decent number of good stuff from Flying Dog, Rogue Dead Guy, and some other regional brewers. The restaurant looked nice with a more upscale atmoshpere than the small bar.

This place is AWESOME! I cannot believe people did not point me in this direction sooner. The bar has a great selection of taps, both high and low alc, including some single batches and other rare-ish kegs. [BBC, terrapin,] And they were doing 2-for-1 drafts when I was there. Their website lists *72 taps* but when I was there, the bartender told me it was actually 69. He also gave me samples of beers to rate since I told him I was driving and couldnt drink too much. I did not try the food in the Mojo Grill, but everyone said that it was really good. This place is definitely a bar though. The dim lighting and lots of smokers can make rating difficult. And the bathrooms, despite being located down a cool hallway decorated entirely with old dartboards, are the smallest and most cramped Ive ever seen. They have two urinals and a shitter all located in a room a little larger than a broom closet, and dont even bother if youre pee-shy, there are no dividers. Parking is also a problem, the front lot h

Thanks to Butters for the tip, this place was pretty much the star of my trip. To start, the bathroom situation was hilarious. The place was packed and smoke-filled by 3pm on a Sunday afternoon. It was 2 for 1 drafts on the cheaper stuff. Must have had about 40 taps. Bunch more in bottles. Didnít try to food.

Good beer selection with some rare high alcís. cajun style food at relatively cheap prices, great with a good IPA or thick malty beer too. The several times Iíve been there I have sat at the bar and had to watch the bartenders pour Blue Moon after Blue Moon and Bud product which is sad. Last time I was there they had Stone Double Bastard, Smoked Porter, IPA and something else Stone that I canít remember. Keg only beers frequently show up here too. Very dim and smokey.

Always a favorite when in the neighborhood. Nice selection, good service with a funky atmosphere. Being smoky is the only drawback.

This is a large, wide-open bar with plenty of TVs and bar games. The selection is solid, and they almost always have something special that you wonít find anywhere else. The bar staff does a good job of helping people who care about beer while dealing with the BMC crowd which inhabits this area. I have never eaten here, but it is standard bar food to my knowledge. I wish that they didnít allow smoking.

Even though itís down in the land of honky tonks, this is a pretty good place to land on a quieter night. Really good selection of pints, and not nearly as smokey as the Flying Saucer.

Was there on a very rainy day, so it was not very crowded.
Service was very good. Didínt try the food, so canít comment. Tap selection is about as good as Iíve seen and had 2 or 3 very good beers. Had one that had a very peach taste that was very unique, but canít remember the name.
We live about 5 hours from Nashville, but daughter lives in Paducah, so we can dart down there in about 2 hours when we are visiting. Love the downtown area of Nashville.
