Very pleasant meal eaten outside at a shared table. Great service and a really fun menu. Good beers and cocktails. The food, honestly, was not special. But I'm leaving my 5-star rating because the price was right.

We stopped in for lunch and had a great experience. I had the grilled fish tacos and was able to sample my husband's Italian sandwich and my son's hamburger. All great. The prices were in line with the food quality, but a bit higher than we typically spend for lunch.

Geer Street Garden has a have a good menu, creative drinks, and they really focus on trying to serve you quickly while not trying to force you out. I frequently but not always have the Cobb salad which is fantastic and one of the best G&T's I have ever had. The wait staff is friendly, and attentive but not too... More

Food is fresh and tasty, friendly staff and good outside sitting area. Sometimes a longer than expected wait for food

I had a perfect lunch here with my sister-in-law while in Durham. She's local to the area and it's one of her favorites. And I was very happy with her advice because the food was amazing. They have the very best sweet potato fries and I chose the curry mayo as my dipping sauce which was a perfect complement to... More

A good bar to sit and meet/chat with friends, food is a bit heavy on the fat! Good range of beers and the music allows you to hear what's said!

Lovely garden, wonderful fresh and organic food. Great beer selection. The salad I enjoyed was a perfect combination of flavor profiles. My husband's fried chicken was not greasy, breading was crisp and flavorful, mashed pots were a great addition. Lovely strawberry shortcake with fresh real whipped cream! This is going to be the perfect addition to our Durham portfolio of... More

We went here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. We ordered the Pile and some hush puppies. Both were great. The sauces they served with each dish made them even better. We were two adults and a one year old and it would have probably taken two or three more adults to polish off the Pile. When we left... More

The building is tiny so most of the dining area is outdoors. Not a bad thing. They are able to enclose and heat the area in cooler months. Seating on the patio is long communal wooden picnic tables. Corn hole is available for entertainment and leashed wellbehaved dogs are allowed. The food offerings run from cheesburger fries to vegetarian risoto... More

Love the outdoor seating area, great for getting friends together. Menu is limited but food was really good and the staff were really friendly and accommodating.
