This place is one of Winston-Salem's best kept secrets. While it is very small inside for eating, it has a great patio if the weather is nice. It has an excellent beer selection and all the food I've had from here has been good and prices very reasonable. I HIGHLY recommend the crab cake sandwich. It's the best crab cake... More

Went for Sunday brunch. Food was fine (we had a sausage omelet and breakfast burrito), but not outstanding. They do have a varied beer list though, and prices are good - it would be hard to find a cheaper brunch option in town. Still, I'd only go back for a beer, not an omelet.

So I've been here many times. We remembered the food fondly, but it disappointed tonight. The menu said "Hand breaded chicken breast", but what I got was chicken tenders. The item description said Buffalo Chicken Sandwich but it came with no sauce and the bun was so thick all I could taste was bread. On top of all that- I... More

We had the wings and the Thai Chicken Wrap - both scrumptious - we continue to visit this restaurant - it is friendly, and the food tasty

I used to come here quite often, and although good, I probably took it for granted. It got late the other night and most local restaurants were either closed or close to closing, so I decided to visit my old hang out. I was very glad I did !!! The food was once again delicious and reasonably priced. There were... More

We were there for lunch and had a couple of great burgers! I had mine with lettuce, tomato & mayo. This is what I always order so that I can compare "apples with apples". My husband had cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles & bacon. Our burgers were very flavorful. It was cooked as ordered and came with a side of fries.... More

We stopped by on a Sunday for lunch. No wait staff in the patio area on Sundays. We had a veggie burger with a side and a pimento sandwich with a side. The veggie burger was smothered in cheese and had no discernible flavor that would make anyone order a second. The waiter brought a pasta salad instead of ordered... More

Many a night when I have not been paying attention and most "regular" restaurants are closed or closing for the night, I head out to First Street Draught House and their food has NEVER disappointed me, in fact I have found it to be better than many local restaurants. True, it is primarily a bar, loud and mostly cramped on... More
