A nice Irish pub type feel brewery who have some really great beers and an excellent burger which I had the pimento pork belly which was outstanding. If you're visiting and in downtown wilmington, stop in you won't be disappointed!

Good food and better beer. Will eat there again if in the area. Had one hamburger and it was a little greasy, but another Plat of pulled pork was great!

Enjoyed multiple half price appetizers & all in the party had their own flights. Great food, beer & atmosphere! Well priced! Only disappointment was we could not take a growler home of our favorite as the beer was in limited supply because it is an expensive custom brew.

Food and beer were both great, and our waitress, Manny, made it feel like we were being served by a friend. Too bad we aren't local, this would be a favorite!

I always eat here at least once on my trips to Wilmington and I have written previously about this Downtown favourite in glowing terms; so it is sad to have to report a poor experience on my most recent visit.
