We are fortunate to visit Wilmington frequently and one of the first stops is Front Street Brewery.
I'm a creature of habit so I usually enjoy the Beer Battered Fish and Chips or the Scottish Ale Ribs - never disappointed. My wife usually changes up her order each time and has also been pleased with the entree she picked. It's a great micro-brewery with a wide selection and the restaurant decor takes you back to the late 1800s-so fitting for downtown historical Wilmington.
Finish it off with a staff that works very hard to ensure you have a great experience in their restaurant whether you're there for a full meal or dropped by to try one of their brews. The value for the food is exceptional so feel free to take the entire family. Yeah, I am a Front Street Brewery fan.

So, you may think I'm crazy to say this is one of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant being that it is a brewery but I have to say the food was outstanding. I have never had bbq brisket ever in my life. I can't eat pork and wanted something bbq but not chicken so I was delighted to find this on the menu. I ordered it along with sweet potato fries. The brisket was done to perfection. It fell apart on the plate but with crispy ends. It was sweet and delicious, I ate every bite and was tempted to order another serving. The fries were also very good. They were crunchy and not greasy, not salted and no sugar for which I am thankful. We ordered a chicken nacho appetizer and that was also very good.

Our server was good, the atmosphere is what you would expect from a brewery. We had a great time visiting; I would definitely go back.

The selection of food was very good and they are very accommodating for large groups. They gave our Wilmington Newcomer's an entire floor for our lunch.

The beer was decent but nothing I would purchase to take home (they do not bottle or distribute, but you can purchase a growler). The food was typical bar food. Definitely does not live up to my experience at the dogfish head brewpub.
