I have been a patron of Front Street Brewery since they opened. They were one of the first micro brewery's in the area. Great food and beer paired with a fun atmosphere makes this pub a must see in Wilmington. My personal favorite is the Raspberry Wheat Beer paired with the Pulled Chicken Nachos. But honestly, I love everything on... More

I walked in and was greeted by the bartender right away I could see he was busy but acknowledged my presence right away. So I was off to a good start. The atmosphere is a little on the noisy side but that is what you'd expect and lots of warm wood tones in the place. They had an abundance of... More

We took friends who were visiting and it was also our first visit. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the beer. I have toured several brewery's and this one ranks at the top. Often times the beers are too unique or to hoppy for my tastes but I tried several here and liked all of... More

When entertaining guests, business or personal, I never hesitate to bring them to the Brewery. The price is reasonable, the menu varied, and wait staff on point. My favorite are the chicken nachos, add extra queso sauce, and jalapeños and you have enough for 2 meals for around $6. Tourists be aware there can be a wait at the traditional... More

One of the best places to eat in downtown Wilmington. A must for both locals and vistors alike. Local treasure well worth the money.

We were in town to tour Wilmington and saw this mentioned on a few sites. Got a table right away and greeted by our waiter Brandon. He walked us through the choices of beer based on our tastes along with the menu. I had the swamp lager beer special while my wife went with a lighter ale. Food was good... More

Had a delicious shrimp wrap and really enjoyed the IPA. Our bartender Megan was very knowledgeable on the huge selection of whiskey and scotch's! Will definitely be back.

Another great experience today at FSB. Our bartender, Jess, was a delight and gave great direction and guidance on some new brews. Our new favorite is the Black Razz 😀👍. Terrific lunch!

We visited the Front Street Brewery today for lunch and the food was by far the worst. I had the bratwurst sandwich which came on a stale pretzel bun with cold homemade chips my husband ordered a burger with fries that were cold I can only assume this establishment stays busy because it is downtown and is a tourist trap...
