Re: “12South Taproom

The Taproom has elements of the ideal beer bar, but the full package still eludes Nashville.

The good:

-Variegated selection, especially if you like West Coast beers
-Decent local representation

The bad:

-Imbalanced regional representation (Too much GA, not enough NC/VA)
-Overpriced and forgettable food. This tends to be a problem with beer bars because it's a good business model: get a couple beers down your patrons' gullets and their standards are lower, so you don't have to try as hard. Can't say I blame them.
-Overwhelming noise inside

What to fix:

-Make good use of the real ale rig and serve more cask beer
-Cut food prices 15% or step up your game
-Do something about the noise inside: Quieter music, acoustic panels, rugs, etc.

Some good other suggestions below

Re: “12South Taproom

Great bar and great atmosphere. The menu looks promising but the execution leaves something to be desired. We had 3 entrees and 2 appetizers everything was significantly under seasoned which was rather unfortunate because like I said previously their food looks great on paper. As far as the selection of beers go it is 2nd to none. The bartender was very helpful recommending new draft selections.

The Good:
Great Atmosphere
Great Beer Selection
Good Prices

The Mediocre:
Food Execution
The crowd - total Hipster bar (if you are into that kinda thing its great)

Re: “J. Alexander's

We placed our name on the waiting list ahead of time (no reservations) so we were seated very quickly. Very pleasant service, attentive but not hovering and server was very knowledgable about the menu. We had a variety of entrees, tuna steak, beef tacos and a filet. Salad was excellent, tacos were acceptable, tuna was well prepared. The filet came medium well instead of medium rare. The room is very "alive" acoustically. So if you want a quiet, intimate dinner you might look elsewhere. Food to value ratio is ok. We'd try again.
