Great service and food. Love the Rasp. wheat draft beer. Would highly recommend. We enjoyed the fresh vegetables nicely seasoned, ribeye steak cook perfect in the grilled shrimp was number 1 quality.

In town on business and a coworker suggested this place for dinner. Energetic college town atmosphere and a varied menu. Lots of micro brewery choices for beer brewed on the premises. I had a rib eye and it was very good.

Awesome sandwiches, local beer and great service from Heather. I bought the handcrafted FSB growler with a handle. Coolest growler ever!

Location is nice, lots to see and do in the area. Our entire party of five enjoyed our meals greatly, and loved the massive bourbon list and craft brews - brought home a couple of growlers. The cheesy potato app is amazing!

The food and drinks were amazing. Fish and chips plus the shrimp and grits. Great beer and grapefruit cocktail. Our waitress, Courtney, was fabulous. Helpful and so friendly. We loved this place

Came here with my parents and two young teen kids. The kids hated the smell of the beer hop. I must admit, it is overwhelming if you come here to eat. Pub food for sure but they make a MEAN grilled cheese sandwich. This is a great place for hanging out with friends but not the best for family dining.

Wandered in the first place we found because we were starving and hit the JACKPOT. Hubby is a bourbon snob and the bourbon selection is out of this world! Bar tenders were SUPER helpful and friendly. We're used to hanging locally and getting personalized service and the folks here made us right at home. Jess was on top of everything... More

Great place to hangout. Try all the beers. The food is pub-ish. Causal dining and it taste great! There are a lot of options and you won't be disappointed. It's a short walk to the Riverfront.

While on an east coast road trip we decided to spend a night in Wilmington. We decided to visit this brewery's and sample their beers. Me and my wife split a flight of 5 beers all very tasty.
