Have eaten at Front Street Brewery several times and never disappointed! Fish and chips best ever --especially for a gal who is not a seafood lover! Onion rings are delicious, crunchy and tasty --never an old greasy taste --great flavor! We had a party of 16 there last week and they were very accommodating. Service was impeccable. Definitely on my... More

Every November when it's time for Cucalorus Film Festival there are two must haves for me 1) Front Street Brewery and 2) Kilwin's. Some of the best food in Wilmington and a staple for visiting downtown Wilmington.

This is the main attraction in Downtown Wilmington. It is a good size place with your basic brewery atmosphere. The service is excellent. I recommend the burgers, but wish I had tried the special that night, chicken and waffles. It is somewhat of a specialty where I'm from so I wish I had tried it there. Oh well. Maybe next... More

We went to Front Street at lunch with a party of 17. We stopped prior to the time we wanted to eat to inquire about a reservation. They took our cell number and said they'd text us when time was getting close. This gave us an opportunity to check out the city. We ended up wondering back by and they... More

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!

Front Street Brewery is a good place to have pretty good food for a very reasonable price in downtown Wilmington. They have good lunch and dinner items along with the typical bar fare. It being a brewery, they have a ton of different beer options, new brews to try, and always a beer or drink or two on special. Not... More

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

We visited Front Street Brewery on a Sunday night while vacationing. It looked bush from the outside but we were seated immediately. The menu has many options. I had the burger and it was delicious. 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

Wow! The very best fried chicken dish in Wilmington and the world at large can be found at Front Street Brewery, its called "Dixie Chicken". Man!!! was it good! My friends had burgers and grilled tuna over salad which was great by all accounts. They also have great beer that brewed on site and you can see the brewing vats... More
