This was a great restaurant in a great location. The Shrimp and Grits was amazing, and the best we've ever had! We stopped on our way through and had to stop on the way back home. It was totally worth it! My picky child loved it too!

We had to wait approx. 25 minutes for a table, and it was probably the worst table in the entire restaurant...on the 2nd floor in the corner, where the wait staff congregate. Granted the restaurant was busy,but the food took another 25 minutes to arrive, and was completely overcooked (fish), the fries were at best, luke warm/cold, and the waitress... More

The beer is very good as advertised. We both thought the service was very awkward and poor. The inside is very tavern like, but really showing age and is kind of run down in appearance. The menu was very average bar food. A little disappointed to be honest. Our son is attending UNCW and we are looking for a few... More

They brew their own beer for $1.99 per glass. Very old and rustic building that has been preserved. It was very clean and the staff... More

Been living in Wilmington for a few years now, and the FSB is always on point, be it Friday night or Sunday for some late lunch. Awesome prices, quick service, and the fried pickles are great. I'd recommend stopping by sometime and checking this place out.
