After more than 13 years slinging cold beer and pub favorites at their original location, Piranha's Bar & Grill opened a second location overlooking Old Hickory Lake in Hendersonville. There, they continue to fill mugs and serve up their signature sandwiches, half-pound burgers, and specialty dishes, such as the mini donut burger, which was named Best Appetizer at the Taste of Hendersonville in 2013. 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.

Big HD screens, a menu of savory pub fare, and hospitable, scantily kilted servers, whom the restaurant calls cast members, populate the Tilted Kilt’s lively, Celtic-inspired consumption quarters. Congenial nights kick off with a mouthwatering appetizer, such as the Tilted Kilt irish nachos, whose freshly cooked potato chips arrive sporting a delectable cheese sauce, seasoned ground beef, and tomatoes, or the roasted garlic fries tossed in garlic butter and parmesan cheese. Dining duos return from rousing billiards games to celebrate sunken 8 balls or puzzle over levitating cue balls with creatively topped flatbread pizzas, or the classic Big Arse hamburger, a 10-ounce patty of choice ground chuck delivered by mini-kilt-clad waitresses. Amid a sea of sports-tuned HDTVs, soda and coffee hydrate throats parched from shouting answers during Wednesday trivia or from shouting improvised choruses at live-music performers on most Fridays.

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.

Cragnacker's Bar & Grill simultaneously satisfies appetites for fresh grub and amusement, dishing out a diverse spread of classic pub eats amid a collection of fun-dispensing attractions.

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.
