From a nice local selection of draft beers, to great food, this is a nice local place to grab a bite to eat. Local music on the weekends. Also not too far off the greenway for the bike riders coming out of raleigh. Nice burgers, salads and the nacho chips are wonderful!

This is a quaint place in downtown Clayton in the historic Barbour building. There is an outdoor patio for smokers or those wanting fresh air. The inside is crowded and noisy but the food makes up for lack of quiet. They have a lot of sandwich choices and finger food. The Flip Side frequently has live music. Great for an... More

First recommendation if you do decide to try this place out is DON'T take kids. This place is NOT family friendly. The owners and staff are really rude when it comes to little ones and any noise they might make. Second recommendation, don't go expecting great food. It's ok at best. Third recommendation, don't look down. The place is not... More

I used to enjoy eating here, but the last two times have been horrid. Lousy service, and substandard, overpriced food. The beer is good, and the outside seating is nice. Eat someplace else.

My husband and I have gone here twice with two friend. It is great for what it is. This is a local hole in the wall kind of place. The restaurant is clean and the staff friendly. The menu has many options with very reasonable prices. Great beer selection. Don't go here looking for a five star restaurant and you... More
