I stopped by Front Street Brewery with my fiancé last night and to say we were impressed would be saying the least. We got a recommendation to eat here from a friend and it did not disappoint! Our server, Susan, was one of the most attentive we have had in while. She made sure our drinks were always full, which... More

Friendly staff, good service, great beer, bad food....Ordered fish and chips and was served two recently thawed factory processed fish sticks which had no taste at all....Order of nachos was bland and uneventful....Good place to sip a locally brewed beer, but have your meal elsewhere.....

In Wilmington with my family for a beach/city vacation. In checking out downtown we found Front Street Brewery to be in the heart of the district buzzing with evening activity. After a short wait at the bar we were seated and our wonderful server, Jackie guided us through a great evening of dining. We will be back!

Came with my wife and was pleasantly surprised. The beer I had was very good. It was called Riptide Raspberry Wheat. I liked it better than purple haze. Apps were great, and for main course the sandwiches we had were off the chart. But the best part of the night was our server Kristen, she made us feel very comfortable... More

Cool place with decent food. Open late night for those with the munchies after the club. I haven't taken the tour of the brewery, but I hear their beers are pretty decent. They are usually pretty busy, so they are doing something right.
