Visited June 2014... briefly. I had a horrible experience here. Mrs. Owl and I came in the evening time and there was loud live music playing, which was miserable. Unbearably loud. We were lucky to get a seat as it was pretty busy. It took a long time for anyone to serve us. Our hotel had accidentally kept my ID, so we were not served, but that wasnít their fault, so I understand (despite being a 29 year old man with a 26 year old woman who did have her ID). So we go back to the hotel, get the ID, go back to 12 South, park a few blocks away, walk in the rain, get there, and have to wait for space to sit. We finally sit, wait 15+ minutes and never get served, so we left and went to Flying Saucer while starving and pissed we wasted our time at a crappy hipster dive bar. This may be an isolated event, but that was my experience and Iím telling it as is. Didnít get to sample the food. They had a good tap list... wish I had gotten to try some.

Great place for a drink with friends. Small and comfortable with outdoor seating for nice weather. Decent selection of local beers. Friendly service. Very limited parking.

This bar tends to get some great beers on tap and their staff generally knows what they are serving, which is nice. However, it is always impossible to find a parking spot or a table, and the prices are probably the highest of any bar in town.

(Visited 02/2013): 12 South Tap Room is located ironically on 12th Ave South in a cool little neighborhood in south Nashville. There is a small parking lot in front of the building.

There is a patio out front. Inside is an eclectic array of funky colors, art, and old concert hand bills. Cement floors, and stickers around a cooler behind the short bar in the center. There is a chalkboard displaying new beers behind the bar.

The beer selection consists of around 20 taps with regional brewers like Blackstone, Calfkiller, New Belgium, Schlafly, Green Man and Yazoo. Many bottles too including Brooklyn, Oskar Blues, Rogue and Butternut. A few imports as well.

Service on a relatively slow early afternoon was good. Both the bartender and server were friendly and knowledgeable.

Food at 12 South includes, sandwiches, burgers, burritos and the like. Our sandwiches were both enjoyable.

Overall this is a great little spot to hit outside the city for some good beer and food.

Havenít tried the food, but 12 South is one of the best places in Nashville to grab a beer. The tap selection is pretty good, although during my most recent visit, the draft lines werenít functioning, so we were limited to bottles and cans. The upside was that the bottled and canned selection is also solid and rotates pretty often. The space itself is intimate and inviting, but because itís small, Iíd suggest going during the daytime, if you can. Otherwise, good luck finding a spot.

If you like noise then this is the place for you. Service was excellent and a good selection of beer. Food was very good. The place is small and fills up quickly. We arrived about 6 pm and by 7 there were at least a dozen people waiting for a seat.

This is a funky little restaurant/bar. Tons of cool stickers and decor adorn nearly every inch of wall and ceiling. the food menu is solid with emphasis on locally sourced offerings. I had a delicious brisket quesadilla. There is a patio. The beer selection rotates often and covers a good spectrum of styles and regions. Expect to pay $5 to $6 for any beer. Itís a funky little eatery with lots of personality and a fresh, changing beer selection.

Excellent place for awesome beer and awesome food. A killer combination. Go here if you want some beers that are a little out of the normal mainstream of beers. Plenty of taps and bottles, this place is one of my favorites. Oh yeah and the TVís are awesome
