First of all, Sara, our waitress, could not have been better. She was friendly, quick, knowledgeable, and took very good care of 8 of us. When we visit again, I'll ask for her. She's awesome. The hostesses were also kind and helpful. Atmosphere was awesome, and the food...delicious. If you like beer, order the flight -- local beer with distinct... More

Stopped by after a battleship tour. Inside was filled so we sat outside. Service was great and out waitress was very knowledgeable about the brewery and menu choices. Portions was big and hot when served. Would go back again

My wife and I met some friends for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was somewhat busy but we were seated right away. We ask for a recommendation for an appetizer and were told to try the chicken nachos and we did. The nachos were excellent as were each of our entrees. I highly recommend the Tsunami Tuna if...

Typical brewery but then again I don't drink beer. But the chicken leg appetizer is so delicious. Otherwise all the other food are average. Salmon was bland and shrimp & grits aren't that spectacular.

Good beer, and easy going bar staff. Megan is an awesome bartender, and made sure we were all taken care of. Warning: the taps are heavy on CO2, and multiple people got squirted on by Megan

After unexpected showers came through while shopping downtown Wilmington, we stopped by the Front Street Brewery for dinner. It was a surprising turn around to our soggy day with great food and a great staff. Manny, our server, was fantastic with outstanding customer service. She made recommendations of micro brews to try and ensured we left with full bellies and... More
