Recognized by Maxim as one of the best bars in the country to watch a big game, Sam’s All American Sports Grill consistently climbs to the tops of rankings. In fact, Zagat featured the grill on its Sports Bar Food Tour, and Bleacher Report affirms that Sam’s will “certainly enhance any game-day experience.” Inside, 16 beers on tap fill glasses, while friendly staffers serve burgers and handcrafted pizzas, pirouetting between tables with the finesse of a running back on roller skates. As diners kick back beneath the glow of mounted high-definition TVs, Sam’s team of chefs work hard behind the scenes, making soups, sauces, and dressings from scratch daily.

A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.

While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

A mounted buffalo head eyes guests curiously as they swing through the french doors of Buffalo's Nashville, having climbed the stairs or ridden the elevator to the historical building's second floor. As patrons settle into studded leather barstools, bartenders take their orders for well drinks or domestic beers such as Bud, Miller Light, and Coors Light, and sports games play on 21 high-definition TV screens. Behind the scenes, the kitchen yields plates of burgers and sandwiches as well as wings dipped in a dozen mild to extra-hot sauces.

In between rounds of drinks, bouts of shuffleboard, darts, and billiards occupy glassless hands as spectators watch from atop a refurbished shoeshine station. Buffalo's Nashville also hosts special events and parties in a pair of private rooms overlooking the Cumberland River and the Titans' LP Field.

Belcourt Taps celebrates the charms and flavors of the South with regular live music, and gourmet twists on comfort classics. The festivities begin before diners even step through the door. Outside, a sprawling patio surrounds the restaurant, lit up at night with warm sconce lighting and candlelight. There, guests can dig into gourmet stuffed burgers and tacos with pulled pork, shrimp, or chicken. Diners can also explore tapas and shareable plates of fried green tomatoes and nachos or dive solo into a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.

Inside, regular live music showcases the talents of singers and songwriters who carry on the Nashville sound. Golden yellow walls brighten the room, adding the feel of a southwestern cantina or a southwestern cantina owned by a pyromaniac, and soft overhead lighting creates the ideal atmosphere for a draft beer.

The new location sports 3 party rooms and a 2,000-square-foot patio with views of the lake as well as five garage doors that let fresh air stream in when the weather's warm. Live music, a game room, and flat-screen TVs keep patrons entertained during every season.
