A friend and I had the special....roast pork with sweet potato Au gratin and collards. It was absolutely the most delicious dinner.....the meat was so tender, the sweet potato was perfectly cooked and the collards were seasoned with a bit of hot pepper flakes. Our mates had chicken & waffles and the barbecue pork with the most interesting sweet and... More

Very good local beer selection: We had a delicious Full Steam and Trophy. Burger was quite good and the chicken arugula salad was great! Soup was rather salty but flavorful. Great wait staff, quick and friendly service. Fun place.

Excellent food, wait staff friendly and attentive(but not to much). I had the "special" of the day - Local Arugula salad with white beans and corn cakes- delicious. Pimento cheese sandwiches are great also! Indoor or outdoor seating...

An old service station refurbished to service your love of food. Artistic and creative hangout for modern Durham dwellers. Menu is simple but with inventive twists on some classics. Enjoy the outside covered patio. Even on a hot day it is comfortable. Make this a regular haunt.

We ate dinner, good sandwiches. Fast service and friendly staff. There is big outside seating area and slightly small area for inside seating. Music was loud. Prices are slightly on the high side. However, food was good, good quantity and quality.

We took my father here for an impromptu birthday dinner on a Thursday night. We'd all just completed a family run so were very casual, but still fit in! Our server accommodated our large party of 7 with multiple checks and graciously accommodated our homemade cake- and added candles and serving! They have now earned me as a customer for... More

Busy Saturday night, Duke students arriving back in town! Very limited dinner menu, mostly sandwiches and fries. Great beer selection and signature drinks. I ordered the grilled fish tacos and was very disappointed with my food. The presentation was sad and unappealing. I received a plate with 5 pieces of over cooked grilled fish served on three stale, soft tacos... More

Some of the best pub food that I've ever had. Great fish tacos, fried to perfection, delicious hush puppies, and delicious fried green tomatoes. Sangria was unique with death to the flavor. Service was professional and very quick, even for our large group of 15.

I've been here to Geer Street Garden several times. I like their ambiance. Great outdoor seating. Their Jalapeno hush puppies are a must try. Love the fish tacos as well. Great place. Fun times.

Thank Steve M
