Great building and good location

In a very interesting old building in downtown Wilmington. Easy to find parking in the parking decks nearby and some on the street. We did not have any of the beer, but the sandwiches we had were very good. The services was great and it is worth going in to look at the building.

My family and I did the Brewery tour. It's not a "tour" per say as you are in the small brewing area while they talk about the brew process. You do get to sample 3 types of beer. We stayed for lunch and the food was over all good. The beer selection was amazing. The best part of the place... More

This was my second time eating at this restaurant. Both times the food was great and the beer even better.

My family visited Front Street Brewery over the weekend. It's a great place for beers, cocktails and people watching but the pub stye food Was mediocre at best. I ordered the pickle chips which where a little too thin and dried out for my liking however the NC Bison burger was very tasty. My husband and sister n law had... More

My girlfriend and I stopped in here late on a Saturday night and the place was busy, but there was no wait for a seat. We ordered the crab dip with pita points and some beer nuggets (flavored bread with marinara dipping sauce) - all very tasty. I couldn't decide on what beer to get, so I tried them all... More

The food was typical bar food. Good and reasonable prices, but nothing pretty or pretentious. The beer was great! It was definitely loud and packed on a Sunday night. We ate upstairs and even up there the noise was overwhelming at times. Would definitely try it again or at least get their beer to take home!

Front Street Brewery has good pub food at reasonable prices in a warm pub atmosphere! Have visited with couples and the girls for dinner before a play!

Located in the heart of downtown Wilmington, Front Street Brewery offers its guests a tour of its micro brewery just inside the front door. The food is good and outside dinning is available. Great place to sit and relax.

This is a brew pub located in down town Wilmington with the brewery right there behind the glass. They have a number of their current brews on tap and a very nice pub menu to go along. Good meeting place with an upstairs away from the bar.

Good sandwiches, great burgers. Pub setting, lots of wood, people and fun. Always busy and big enough so one doesn't have to wait. Try some of the local brews, you won't be sorry. Try to sit in Kipton's section.
