enjoyed a good dinner here, prices are on the high side and the beer is average compared to the other 2 spots in the city, but this place is on the busy riverwalk area of the city so it’s a convenient stop.
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).
Typical chain restaurant feel. I would rate this place a lot lower but for the fact of two beers they serve: Firestone and Hook Slide ales. Hook Slide is one of the best session beers on a hot day. Refreshing and delicious from the first to the last gulp.

After securing a sort of illegal street parking spot I headed in shortly after 11, dining area had already a few tables, I sat at the bar and was quickly helped to some samplers of their beers, bought a bottle and had to run. Service was good though. Looked like the other Boscos, beer was brewed on site and was about as expected. 8 beers on tap, Hook Slide Ale also served at local minor league baseball games.
Nice little brewpub on the main drag in downtown Little Rock. Typical brewpub/restaurant atmosphere, nice place overall. Sat at the bar and received pretty good service. All of the bartenders had a good working knowledge of the beers. Service was good. They have about 8 beers on tap and a cask ale. I had the sampler, all of the beers were good, not great. They had their porter on cask. The porter was good, but the temperature was a bit too cold for cask. The food was pretty good. Overall it was a good experience and I would go back.
A very nice restaurant that has a brewpub. The staff is friendly and they know about the beer they sell. They only sell the beer they make. Sometimes they’ll have a delight in a bottle if you know to ask for it, but it will be one of theirs left from a former batch. These are usually pretty good. The beers on tap are safe bets to very good. They don’t try much on the radical side, but they usually have some very good recipes on tap. Note that at the time of this rating the picture on this page is wrong (Memphis location).
Nice place to hang out. Service is good if you sit at the bar. The pizza and ipa make this place worth the stop.

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.
Nice interior. I’ve been several times - got so-so service once, but otherwise always good service. Food is good. A decent selection of the their own beers across a variety of styles. Most of the time the wait-staff had a clue about beer (but not always). It is family friendly however (unlike Flying Saucer down the street), so it’s a good place to go for food and beverage if you have young ones with you. They have cask ales on occasion. Also, the picture of the red building isn’t of the Litte Rock location
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.
English Wheat - light, corny, taps off.
Oktoberfest - taps not clean. Malty, touch too bitter in the finish.
Stone Beer - light, slightly malty, caramel only in the color, flavor is bland.
Scottish Ale - taps dirty. Off flavor overwhelms. Touch of smoke.
English Brown - off flavor dominates, a bit watery, dark grains provide a subtle nutty character, slight malt.
American Pale Ale - nice flowery hop aroma, hop flavor helps suppress off flavor but it’s still there, bitterness does not balance malt.
English IPA - off flavor detectable, no hop aroma, malty sweet with hop bitterness but not much hop flavor. Off flavor really alters character.
Stout - transparent, looks more like a porter or brown ale, off flavor noticeable, roasted malt prominate giving way to coffee in the finish.
Menu is higher end, environment is unremakable, somewhat sterile, pizza bar offers some character, but overall forgettable.
Servers seem more interested in the football games than the fact my glass was empty.
