My server was Anna today and she was exceptional. She suggested the pulled chicken burrito and it was just as good as she described. The beers are great and I'll definitely be back! Keep up the good work Anna!

“Great Place, great price”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

I visited the Front Street Brewery few days ago. Half price appetizers are awesome, we made huge mistake to order to many for price range 2.99-4.99 we thought it will be very small portions, not the case, the appetizers were huge and delicious! What can you ask more than good beer and some fried goodness!

“One of the best in wilmington”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

Moved here from NJ a year ago and we've been to FSB a few times and always walk out full and satisfied. A lot of restaurants in the area suffer from either poor service or food that is not that great. This restaurant suffers from neither one great service, great home made brews and great food!!!! The pulled chicken nachos are tasty, the ribs are great, the sides are all good also!!!! Go there you won't be disappointed

“Great introduction to historic Wilmington”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

This was our first visit to Wilmington. We passed many signs on the highway for the Front Street Brewery. Prior experience has taught us that this many advertisements usually led to a less than stellar restaurant. But not in this case. Although there were many restaurants in the historic Wilmington area to choose from, the Front Street Brewery seemed the most popular by crowd, vibrant, kid friendly, and reasonably priced. Plus, being this was our first day on vacation, the offer of a place where they make their own beer was definitely attractive. The inside of the restaurant has a long bar where you can watch one of several TVs, eat, wait for your table, or just enjoy one of the brews. We were seated fairly quickly (6pm on a Friday) and our waitress came soon after. The brew of the day, a black lager, was priced at $1.99. The brew was the winner of a prior contest, and it did not disappoint. We ordered chicken legs for an appetizer, which were very tasty. The kids ordered burgers, I ordered the pulled pork special (pulled pork and two sides for $8.99), and the hubby ordered country fried steak. The pulled pork was absolutely delicious, just the perfect amount of sauce. For sides, I had the cucumbers and tomatoes, and the bean salad. Both my husband and I really enjoyed the bean salad which was very tasty with just the right amount of dressing. Probably the only disappointment was with the burgers, which seemed to be fried on a pan instead of grilled on an actual grill.

“Great local pub with great food & service”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

We stopped into Front Street Brewery while visiting Wilmington on vacation…we'd seen the many billboards for it driving in and heard some good things from our friends who've been patrons before. Despite it being very busy, our server Emily Health, was very attentive and nice. She had great suggestions for an indecisive group! My husband got the pulled pork chicken nachos which were excellent and I got the shrimp and grits…so tasty!

I think our favorite beer was the Scottish Ale, but we tried a number of them. Overall great experience and we will definitely be coming back again!
