I had lunch here recently. It was a typical brewery restaurant, with decent home brewed beer and good burgers. The service was pleasant and food was good. On the whole, however, it is an average place.

I read several good reviews, but I was not impressed. The food was typical bar food. I had a beef brisket sandwich and it was extremely dry. I enjoyed the beer flight, but the cocktail my friend ordered wasn't very good. I felt like it was a tourist trap. The tables surrounding us were filled with tourists. I prefer to... More

Quick, end of the business day stop for refreshments. Nice selection of micros on tap.....all were very tasty. Very knowledgeable bartenders who are quick to answer questions on beer styles and offer samples.

So glad we went to this restaurant! Love the food atmosphere and service! We went two nights in a row! Probably due to their half price appetizers special :). But all in all even if we had paid full price I would have been pleased. We aren't big beer drinkers, but if you are they have a gazillion types to... More

Our choice of accommodations was based on close proximity of this brewery and we weren't disappointed! The food was fabulous from the regular pub grub to the delicious steaks we were served! The staff was inviting and very friendly. A special "shout -out" to Laura, the bartender! Maybe we'll run into you when you visit OUR part of the state!

I am a HUGE fan of the pulled chicken nachos. Yum! Yum! Yum! That's what I order each time I go and as long as they get my order right (no jalapenos) I am completely satisfied, and unless I split my nachos with my husband or a friend, I have left overs. I don't drink beer, so I can't comment... More

During our travels we look for fresh beer. Tuesday night specials were outstanding, with Scottish Ale winning over IPA. Food is good pub grub, with outstanding chips. Fun atmosphere, as noted good beer, but no stouts or porters during the summer, shall we return???? Maybe.

A little disappointed in the BBQ brisket this time. Fried green tomatoes are always amazing. Fish and chips very good. Very loud upstairs. Wedding reception a few years ago on the 3rd floor was lovely.

My husband and I went here for dinner. The fish tacos were good, husband wasn't pleased with the Shepherd's Pie. He liked the beer selection and had a flight. The atmosphere was busy and loud.

I hate giving FSB an average rating, this was one of my favorite restaurants when we lived in Wilmington. The food really was great, but the atmosphere seemed suited to the 20-something crowd and not where I would take a family. We sat in the second level and it was VERY busy with lots of people and waitresses running back... More
