happyregular. I just wanted to take the time to advocate how much I still enjoy visiting Boscos in the Village. I too am a regular and have yet to experience any dissatisfaction from my service to the management staff. I am always greeted with a friendly face and hello and continue to have pleasant conversations with not only the bar staff, but also the management staff. As someone who use to be in the hospitality industry I know the strife and unpredictability that comes with seasonal and temporary employment. I feel that Boscos goes above and beyond to continue their strong reputation of the friendly pub around the corner. Most employees know me by name as does the management staff. The food is great, the beer is terrific and the service is stellar. Keep doing what you are doing.
New management is killing the place. I have been a regular at boscos for probably four years now and i have never seen this restaurant at such a low. The attitude by servers seems to be so negative and there is a constant flux of new faces which makes it hard to walk in and feel welcome. I hear rumors of threats constantly coming down from management which seems to evoke a dark cloud upon the place and people are quitting or getting fired left and right. I overheard one of the bartenders get chewed out over something insignificant and was appalIed by the way they were talked to. I hope something is being done to correct this. My viewpoint is shared by many other regular patrons and if this keeps up we wont be very regular any more.
do the owners know what has happened?. we watched and overheard a manager chew out our server over something that was clearly a matter not related to the business of serving her tables, we asked the server if that was normal and she replied that it was just how the manager did things, and that she was quitting after her shift. it was very awkward. our service was fine, but the food quality lacked for the price we paid; the beer was excellent as always. we used to come here a lot, but the staff has changed and the atmosphere has lost its feel of a friendly neighborhood pub. we used to be able to come in for a beer or a snack and chat it up, but now it has the feel of a mcdonald's. no personality, no hospitality, and after what we witnessed last week, no direction.
what happened?. When I first moved to Nashville 4 years ago, I was a regular here. The beer is fantastic, and I frequently had happy hour drinks and then stayed for dinner; they have one of the best veggie burgers in town. Over the past year or so, though, service in the bar area has begun to decline. At first I thought it was a fluke, but it's happened so many times now that I've stopped going and stopped inviting groups of friends. At times it would take 15-30 minutes for our server to check in with us or refill empty beers when we requested; worse, when we would try to pay our tab to leave, it might take up to 45 minutes. It made me understand why some people just walk out! What happened, Bosco's? You used to be so reliable!
Best coffee. Probably one of the best cups of coffee to be had this side of the Rockie Mountains. There is a lot for the southern sugar loving person to like also. They are well stocked with latte mocha flavorings and stuff to make a coffee a dessert in a cup. They also know their clientelle and refuse to lower their standards for a good cup of coffee. They have dark mellow roasts as well as a good French roast that works pretty well for your own espressos at home. Get a cup and take a pound home.
Great for large groups. I arrived early and warned them of our 16+ group coming in for a 2 hour happy hour. They were very accomodating. The waiter came back numerous times to check on us and did very well keeping everything straight, a hard job considering many of the married couples were not sitting with their spouse, but wanted to be on the same ticket. Several people ate pizza and raved about it. Great beer selection and nice wine selection.
Boscos Says Trash Your Ashtray.
Boscos Leads the No-Smoking Charge in Tennessee
Restaurant Announces Weeklong ?Trash Your Ashtray? Fundraising Promotion
in Nashville to Kick Off Its Ban on Smoking
Governor Phil Bredesen signed the ?Non-Smoker Protection Act,? banning smoking in the majority of public places in Tennessee, including restaurants and bars. The law will go into effect on Monday, October 1, 2007.
However, Tennessee-based Boscos, which operates successful eateries / brewpubs in Nashville and Memphis, will formally eliminate smoking inside its restaurants more than two months earlier, beginning Monday, July 16.
To kick off its smoking ban, Boscos will sponsor a weeklong promotion (July 16 - July 22) at both locations called ?Trash Your Ashtray,? whereby the company will donate one dollar to the American Lung Association of Tennessee for every ashtray that customers drop off at either of the two locations. Participants will be required to present the ashtrays either to the manager, host / hostess, waiter / waitress or bartender. (Limit one ashtray per customer.) Each restaurant will have a prominent ?Trash Your Ashtray? receptacle to collect the donations.
In addition, the weeklong event also will include an award for the most unique / creative ashtray brought to each restaurant. The two winners will receive $100 Boscos gift certificates.
To ensure that the fundraising component gets off to a solid start, Boscos will ?trash? all of the ashtrays currently in use at its restaurants, and guarantee a minimum donation of $1,000 to the American Lung Association of Tennessee.
For more information on the promotion, please contact:

the extra mile. After leaving the debacle that is Jackson's, Bosco's welcomed me with open arms. It was past last call, but the bartender poured me and my pals a quick beer for the road, and was even nice to us. She cleaned, we drank, and left right before the road blocks started. Hell of a place.
Great Atmosphere, Food and Beer. We are pretty new to Nashville, but after dining and celebrating our anniversary at Bosco's we feel a little bit more at home. The service was great and they were packed! The food was unique and complimented the great beer that our server assisted us with choosing. We will definitely come back to this great place!
Airy atmosphere and hip tunes lend a casual vibe to this upscale Hillsboro Village brewpub..
Hillsboro Village is lively, and so is this brewpub. Tall ceilings and exposed pipes give way to huge metal light fixtures. Big booths that seat up to six are conducive to sharing appetizers. The open kitchen adds to the festive atmosphere. Bar eats are good while customers enjoy the real star: the beer. A best bet is the wood-fired pizza. The famous Flaming Stone Beer is named for the heated stones used during brewing.
