Not much to say they sat us outside with menus and we never saw a waitress. Three of them stood at the door so I guess they weren't busy. We got up and went to Fat Tony's and had a great time.

Good tasting food for cheap! I had the pulled pork sandwich and my husband had the burger. Both were pretty tasty for how cheap they were. He was a little disappointed that they only have craft beer, but it wasn't a big deal.

Front Street Brewery consist of an easy going atmosphere with great food. Great for families and conveniently located in downtown Wilmington one block from the river walk. Be sure to get the chicken nachos and the fries are amazing. Received great service from Nicole Michelle and will return on our next visit to Wilmington.

Great pub near the Riverwalk. All beers are brewed onsite and give a nice range of selection. My favorite was the Amberjack ESB, very much an English style ale. The Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Cellar Dweller was also excellent. The do sell 6-packs of their beer to go, except for the Cellar Dweller (Alc content too high?). We both had... More

We went in one night to sample the after 10pm half price appetizers. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I sampled the onion rings, (which arrived pile high) beer knots and buffalo style chicken legs! That's right, chicken legs! My friends had the pulled chicken nachos, which look like it's for two, and brats. The drinks were spot on... More

This is a beautiful older place with a nice bar. The people were very nice and the service was really good. The menu had a lot of options to choose from and the food we ordered was really good "bar food". Would definitely go back if I were there again. Overall really good.

Wow, what a great place to visit. Jared, the bartender, took excellent care of us. He offered good suggestions -- hot dog soup and fried grits were both memorable. We enjoyed trying a flight of brews. The manager Josh was attentive and thoughtful as well. Friendly and welcoming staff, yummy product, overall great experience. Will definitely return next time we're... More
