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.
