Great spot for a drink!

We enjoyed a beer flight and a cocktail served by a great bartender-Alyssa! We did not have a meal but enjoyed the quick service and the atmosphere!

The Front Street Brewery is conveniently located to historic downtown Wilmington. There is seating inside and a small patio area outside. We visited on Memorial Day weekend, so it was busy - but the wait staff were really on top of things. Tables were cleared quickly, and people quickly seated - so the wait time was very reasonable. It's a... More

This place had good food and good brew. It is a bit of a richy Micro Brew. Normally you expect brew pubs to be a bit on the smaller side and remind you a bit more of a whole in the wall. This one definitely had some $$ backing it. Great staff and nice atmosphere.

Unfortunately I cannot review the beer, as that seems to be what draws people there. The food was mediocre, I had the pulled pork sandwich which had way too much membrane and fat for my liking and I was not all that impressed with the BBQ sauce either. My husband had a burger and onion rings which he said were... More

Cute pub located across street from cheap parking garage. Nice selection of entrees, sandwiches, and unique sides. Reasonably priced food and drinks. Definitely try out their specialty beers.

You have to take part in the food and beer pairing. What a joy. The food is very well prepared and the beers are delicious. This is a great place to hold an event. It is fun and delicious. Well worth it.

Visited over Memorial Day weekend and the food was great and service was fantastic. The food came out quickly and tasted amazing. Our waitress, Katie F, was awesome! She was super sweet and brought us everything we needed without us having to ask. My experience at Front Street just made me a regular!

Front St. Brewery has average pub food like burgers. The beer is good, but nothing special. For a "brewery" its a little blase in my opinion. The place isn't that big. Service is great. Prices are average.

Rasberry wheat is one of my favorite beers. Also like the black n blue burger, very tasty. Has a good atmosphere. Good place to eat before listening to live music.

Becky Sue was an awesome server! She gave great beer recommendations, the food was delicious, and I will definitely be coming back next time I'm in wilmington. Very much enjoyed it.
