Went the night of August 20th, kind of a cool place but the service really stinks. The waiter would disappear and they were not busy at all. I don't know what he was doing. He brought half of the food for us and then the rest of it about 15 minutes later, and one was just a salad. of course we waited for everyone to get their food which left it kinda cold when we did eat. Had the Ribeye steak-don't waist your money on that, no flavor. took forever to get out of there because our waiter kept disappearing. IF I do go back, it won't be to eat.
Some of the best beer in the country. This place is absolutely awesome! I go in here all the time with friends and family and they want to go back frequently. First off, the beer is unbelievably good. Take some time and talk to one of the brewers or owners and you'll find out that Blackstone is one of the most award winning Breweries in the entire country. They have 7 Great American Beer Festival Awards for 1 of their beers alone!!!! Beer snobs will know how big of a deal this is. This place is winning awards for several of their beers at the largest beer competitions in the world and it's right here in Nashville. Get a beer sampler and try all that they have to offer. Everything they make is true to style and delicious. Their food is also great, its kind of like upscale English style pub food. Fish and chips are the best in Nashville, and their shepherd's pie is better than what you get in Scotland. Pizzas are great, Pretzels are hot, soft and delicious. They have really good salads and their artichoke dip and wings are crazy good. There really isn't anything I don't like at this place except the vegetarian lasagna and I don't like that anywhere. This Place is local and they have been serving great food for years. They have the absolute best beer in Nashville and some of the best beer in the country. All around amazing place!!
Beer & Politics. I hadn
AWESOME all around!. This place is simply great. I live nearby and go there ALL the time. The beer is great, and the food is too. Try the BBQ Chipotle pork with the gouda grits! SO GOOD! Also the yellowfin tuna sandwich is also great. (I would recommend skipping the pizza though.) The servers are all laid back and friendly, and I have yet to have a bad experience there. Good beer, good food, good atmosphere, and you just can't beat a stand-alone restaurant in days of mediocre chains. Bring your friends!
GREAT BEER... Skip the food.. We love microbrewed beer. This place brews some really good beer. The food.... Not so much. We were on our way to a concert and wanted a quick bite and a brew. I had a boring and bland pizza and my wife had shephards pie that tasted like a frozen dinner. Go for the beer, not the food.
Good Beer !!!.
The beer was good, the service was good, the food was so-so.
What I found amusing is that as I was leaving I saw a sign which had a a picture of a handgun with a circle and a slash.
There I was having lunch with a loaded .45 caliber ParaOrdnance on me not knowing that the Blackstone Brewery hated the 2nd Amendment. Good thing I wasn't drinking.
I will never go in there again.
Great food, great beer, great service!. The food was excellent, and very well presented. The micro-brewed beers were just incredible! Our server was awesome. Everything was also very reasonably priced. Great experience!
What a Brewpub should be!!.
I would like to segment out this review in 2 separate categories. This is a brew pub and they brew their own beer so the first category is beer. The second is food. I am a seasoned traveler and homebrewer.
The beer is all a brewpub should be. Each beer I had was delivered with the perfect head with no smell or hint of stale beer lines. Being a homebrewer myself I know it's a challenge to keep all beer lines and parts perfectly clean. From experience I can tell this beer was delivered in clean lines with the right amount of carbonation.
The seasonal SAISON was just a treat. I could spend 3 paragraphs on this but I won't. It was truly a treat to drink. The RED ale was my personal favorite for everyday drinking. I tasted a harvest brew which was also great to drink. My least favorite was the lighter pale ale. I'm not a fan of lighter ales but this was a far better tasting light ale than what I'm used to. You can't go wrong with any beer, they are all good.
I am very particular about my bar food. Good beer deserves the best company of good eats. I ordered three items on 2 separate days. Consistency was perfect as each day I tried the tasty appetizers they were exactly the same. The wings are some of the best wings I've ever had. The heat is enough to cause a sniffle and the flavor is extremely balanced. There is a hint of butter balanced with the spice. The wings were served hot without burning them. The sauce was drizzeled over each wing coating each wing with just the right amount of sauce.
The artichoke spinach dip is flat out one of the best I've ever had. Just order it.
The pizza has a thin crust that appears to be burned or charred on the bottom, or so I thought. The crust is phenomenal. It is crispy with small grains of flavor cooked on the bottom. The cheese and toppings were the perfect balance with either pesto or red sauce, both which are great.
Service was great both with Amy and another fine gent bartender.
Best Brew in Nashville-You must go!. My husband and i go here quite often and are NEVER dissapointed.The service is great and the food is awesome! If you are a BEER lover this place is for you.The brick oven pizzas' are "highly recommended" and so are the ale rings.Their variety of Ale and Lager complement the food quite well.Very nice place for a date night or hanging out with a group of friends!
I love this place!. I have to own up that even though I'm a regular, I've never moved past the bar area -- there's just been no need! There's always plenty of seating, whether I want to eat at a table, have drinks with friends, or sidle up to the bar. The beer is consistently good -- the nut brown is the best -- and they have an assortment of good salads and sandwiches. My one complaint is that they limit their vegetarian options at dinner time. No major loss, however, as the signature salad is more than enough on its own!
