Nice location right on the river, and next to a farmer’s market which is open on Saturdays. Parking is a problem, best to arrive on foot or by trolly. Large place, large U shaped bar, brery equipment visible. Huge back porch with a great view. Beers were buttery, didn’t care for any of them, sctually. We didn’t eat. Service was very friendly. Customers were scarce.
In a historic part of town with nice shops, overlooking the water, this a great location. Big with a big circular bar, this is setup well. Service was pretty good, but I was the only one there. Selection was their own beers which were unfortunately bad to mediocre. Food was sub par as well, but prices were good. I would give this a miss.
Not as good a beer selection as the other two locations, but they serve only house brews and that is a plus as far as I am concerned. The staff is friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere, somewhat upscale dining on the River Mall in downtown Little Rock.
I can’t complain too much about this place since I didn’t pay for the meal. It’s located in a big building on the main drag but parking is a bit scarce so be prepared to pay cash. The beer is mediocre and the server didn’t seem to know much about it. The food was solid but not spectacular though they were pretty good with groups. I probably wouldn’t go back if I had to pay for it.
December 2010. Visited during a dead Friday lunch hour and sat at the bar. The bartender was overtasked -- not sure why. Just had a couple beers and left. This Bosco’s has a more upscale feel than I remember from the one I visited in Nashville. The beers were OK. But despite the brewing equipment in the corner, the presence of a delivery guy from their main brewery in Memphis rolling kegs in and out made me wonder if they even brew there at all. Disappointing. Go to Diamond Bear instead. (Brewery #526).
Oh dear. So, let’s start with some positives. The location’s great, right in the touristy part of downtown Little Rock near plenty of other drinking venues. The bartender was really nice and kept my glass of ice water topped up. That’s about the extent of the good things I have to say. It was probably a bad sign that the massive bar/restaurant was practically empty at 1:30pm on a Saturday afternoon. The beers were irredeemably poor. Awful. Almost every single one of the 8 beers I sampled were massive diacetyl bombs. They were so disgusting and strongly infected that my hands smelled like butter for the rest of the afternoon from holding the sample glasses. Either the brewer’s clueless or doesn’t care that they’re serving beer in that condition. Overall, shocking stuff. There’s too much good beer out there to bother with places like this.
I liked this place. Right in the heart of the River Market (which has a pretty small heart). The place has good food and solid beers. The had 8 of their own brews on tap when we visited it, which ranged from mediocre to solid (though they become much more solid when you compared them to what else is available in Arkansas). I’ll be back.

Great little palce. Down the street from the Flying Saucer. The pizzas that I and the girlfriend had were very decent. The 8 beers on tap (+1 cask on fridays) were all decent, but nothing special. Decently priced. Very constant service.
My second Boscos. Clean, upscale look to this location, like the one in Nashville. I had a hug sampler of the beer. One of them was terrible, either they boiled way too long or forgot the yeast as it was not drinkable. The other beers were decent, but nothing stood out.
I didn’t eat there, but the food looked decent. The beers on the other hand ranged from bad to mediocre. 8 taps, but unfortunately, all house beers. Service was good. Lots of regular customers, so at least some people must like the beer.
