A cool brewpub near the Vanderbilt campus. I was here for a big gathering and had a great time. They had 4 regulars and 4 seasonals on tap when I was there. The pale ale was good and the baltic porter was quite good, so I don’t think the beer is as bad as the ratings seem to indicate. As far as food, I got a chicken bbq pizza which was very tasty. Overall, a chill place, decent to good beer, and good food. I think it’s worth a stop.
Very cool spot in a very cool part of town, easily accessible from Vanderbilt, Belmont and some great artistic and residential areas. Good beers, some standards and some which are more creative than most predictable brew-pub styles. Excellent pizzas and salads. Occasional fun events. An all-around great hang.
The Beer wasn’t too bad, and a sampler of 8 for $8 is hard to come by. the menu looked great on paper, but the pizza I bought was tiny, thin and lacked any excitement. MY girlfriend’s veggie burger was a frozen gardenburger that they hardly cooked and put on a small bun with a piece of lettuce. there was more blank plate than food. I was severely disappointed with this place as a date ambiance, and only about 1/2 of their beers ended up scoring above 2.5 for me.
Very nice place inside. Dimly lit, nicely dressed people, lots of wood, very clean... warming, nice atmosphere.
Our waiter was prompt, kind, and nicely chatty (not overbearing). His knowledge of the beers was average. He couldn’t remember all of the beers they had on tap and couldn’t talk much about them, except those he liked. He came across at first as knowing a lot, but then crashed pretty fast as I asked questions. He did tell me that the Winter Warmer "is an ale," and that "I love dark beers... if I could have one beer before I died, it’d be a Guinness," in reference to the Scottish-style brew I asked him about."
Selection was slim... their stuff and a few macros. I can’t complain though... it’s a brewpub... that’s the point, right?
Didn’t try the food, but it sounded good. Seemed expensive, though.
Getting a sampler is pretty cheap. You get 8 brews for 8 bucks. My wife’s pint, however, was $4.50 and was far from worth it.
Overall, stop by if you’re in town and want to hit up a chainy brewpub type place that probably has some decent food.
Great idea - too chainy. The food is pre-frozen. I had a frozen pizza I paid $9 for. The brew is decent but nothing spectacular. They have a decent ambiance and sometimes live music - Hillsboro is full of great local places so I’d rather go elsewhere for a beer/food and pay for quality.
Nothing special here.
To me Bosco’s is Nashville’s worst Brewery, the beer isn’t all terrible but for the most part it is bland. It is cool how they agew some of their specialty beers but then they sell them for about 8 bucks a bottle.
My girlfriend and I visited Bosco’s for dinner and beers on a Saturday night during what happened to be a busy homecoming weekend for Vanderbilt in Nashville. We liked the Hillsboro Village area and this is a perfect location for a brewpub. Bosco’s had its four year-round taps and a few seasonals. They have one cask but only on weeknights, which I didn’t understand. We were both disappointed with the beers, but the food was pretty good. We sat up front by the window, but the place goes pretty far back and has high ceilings and a ton of tables but still seemed full. I was hoping to get a sampler but those were not an option that Saturday night either, and we didn’t get a good explanation why. I had higher hopes based on the ratings I’d read prior to visiting, so I was a little disappointed with the selection, service, and beers themselves. Still, some of these could have just been bad luck on the night we visited and Bosco’s here or at one of the other 3 Tennessee locations might warrant a second try.
