Bartenders need to brush up on the social graces... Meant for Boscos...NOT Blackstone.......Sorry..... Attention...........The below review was meant for Boscos NOT Blackstone.. Sorry. Posted to the wrong place.
Wow, the beer! Red Ale, right on!. OK, so I admit I made three trips here in the two weeks I spent in Nashville. The first time was for some beer sampling before a dinner elsewhere. Well, sold! The red ale was about the most addiciting thing since Caribbean rainforest zip lines. Beyond tasty. The next trip we ordered pizza which was really tasty and went perfect with the beer. Third trip was just a hamburger and a beer, but it could have been a cheese sandwich for all I care. The beer here is excellent and can compete with anything I've had foreign or domestic.
Blackstone...you cant beat it. Period.. I LOVE this place. It is by far the best brewpub in Nashville. Whenever I'm in town i have to stop in and get some Great food and Great beer. Fish and Chips, Ribs, Filet, Pork Tenderloin, just to name a few are all fantastic...especially the Fish and Chips. The apps are also amazing especially the artichoke dip, nachos (which just seem to taste better than most other places and i cant put my finger on exactly why..maybe the black beans?), and glorious wings. Great thin crust pizzas too. Wonderful beer that in my opinion totally beats Boscos and knocks Yazoo out of the water. Its really not hard to see why they've won so many awards for the beer. Porter-Probably the best I've have ever had. Nut Brown-Great. Chaser-Taste like a kolch should but I dont like kolchs. Red Springs-Great amber and one of my favorites. The only downfall in my opinion is they usually don't have very many hoppy beers on...other than the Amber. And i am a hop guy. I wish they would put their AMAZING IPA on all the time, but what can you do. If you like beer and know anything about it you will see that this place does everything right. Food is also Great. You just cant beat it. Period!
The food is good and "up and coming" . You cannot beat the beer anywhere in town!. Blackstone is above and beyond the best brewery in Nashville. They recently aquired a new Chef, so they are providing daily lunch and dinner specials that have been wonderful and new "soup of the day" options that use seasonal ingredients and are equally great. The previously reviewed "spill in the brewery" smell is called BREWING BEER! If you don't want to experience hand-crafted perfection, then I do advise against going during lunch hours, as that's when the brewers work. Brewing beer involves a process in which hot lauder, or mash, is madeand this does produce and odor.. I personally, find this smell nice. It can be floral, or, ir you're lucky, they are brewing Nut Brown, which is wonderfully sweet and malty, and just down right makes you hungry! So, any time you're there and smell the BEER BREWING IN THE BREWERY, poke you're head around the corner and watch the guys work. You might learn a thing or two like I did;and maybe not seem so ignorant on your next "review".
For the reviews it gets, I don't understand why it's not as good as they say. I went during the lunch hour. We got seated promptly and our waiter was very good. But the food was just ok and something had been spilled in the brewery and made everything smell REALLY BAD. I've been to brewery restaurants and had much better food than this. It just kind of seemed to be an over priced novelty restaurant type of food. I'd have rather gone to Rainforest Cafe or Hard Rock Cafe and gotten the better smell and ambience and pay for their over priced food than eating at Blackstone. It just didn't give me a good first impression.
Great in every way!.
Wonderful!!! The place was fabulous in every way - good beer, good food, good service and good atmosphere.
Give some serious thought to ordering off the Pub Specialities portion of the menu - the food is unique and yummy. The shepherd's pie was piping hot and full of flavor, the steak & biscuits were tender and the perfect amount, the ribeye juicy and full of flavor. I'm told the garlic potatoes were good, and the lemon caper chicken came with a full plate of fresh (not canned) vegetables.
Dessert - you have to try the Raspberry Bash. I would drive to Nashville just to have that again.
Check it out - it's worth it!
Gouda Grits make the world go round.. About every month or so I pay a visit to Blackstone Brewery. The chipotle pork loin, served with gouda grits, and asparagus, rocks my world. I highly recommend this place.
Our Favorite Restaurant before a Predators Game!. We always head to Blackstone's before a Predators Game! The service is fabulous and they help us get out in time to get to the GEC. Our favorite menu items include Shepherd's Pie, Fish 'n' Chips, and of course, the pizzas! There is something for everyone. Of course, our favorite Blackstone beer would be the Chaser Pale! Also, we like that we can buy it in the grocery now!! It's a party favorite!
great food, not so great service.
i have been dining here for the four years i have lived in nashville. i have yet to have a bad meal, food wise. the service has NEVER been good, but i accept that when i go.
the pizzas are amazing, especially the santa fe pizza. the vegetarian lasagna is good, as is the black bean burger (not on the dinner menu, but is available). the pretzels are also very good. the mustands are great with them!
it can get crowded, so we just go to the bar and get a drink.
i take everyone from out of town here, and they always rave about the food as well and ask to go back.
Blackstone Blah!. My husband & I went to blackstone recently after having lived in Nashville for 7 years and never having been there...wished we'd kept it that way! Maybe they have good beer, but that's all you might want to go for!!! I had the salmon which smelled so bad I could hardly eat it and my husband had the trout which he had to pour salt on and tear the skin off the bottom. Plus to make it worse the decor looks like a mid 1990's steak house threw up in there! We will not be going back.
