The pretzel with queso is awesome! The shrimp and grits are to die for:) and the grilled chicken breast with black and with blue cheese is super tasty:)

This place has fantastic atmosphere and great food. There is always new beer to try and i have always loved it. I live in Minnesota and always make sure to visit when I'm in Wilmington. Heather provided the best service.

I recently visited my friend near Wilmington and they thought I would like downtown, not only did I like downtown Wilmington, I also loved the awesome food and the excellent service our waitress Makenzie gave us at the Front Street Brewery!

Burgers are great. Heather was great. Worth checking out. Being that they are serving food until 12, it is becoming my go to place, as after a certain hour, finding good food can become a challenge.

We brought a friend who was visiting to see downtown. Our service was excellent, Makenzie recommended the fried green tomatoes and they were awesome! Loved the raspberry wheat brew. I got service with a smile and she remembered what I needed even before I knew I needed it. Overall great visit.

Despite the crowd, seating for Friday night dinner was relatively quick. We hit Port City Java for coffee while waiting for our table. The food was fantastic as were the brews. Wide customer age range. Great customer service. Loads of other unique shops along Front Street to explore, parking garage free.

What a great experience! Harrison talked to my boyfriend and I about the local brews and we learned quite a bit about the brewing process. He seemed to really enjoy his job and was excited about sharing it with us. We even were able to sample a few of the beers! The brewery tour is definitely worth doing and ask... More
