Stopped in on a Thursday afternoon with hardly anyone on the place, which was ideal for us to sample the many beers they serve. Quite a good variety on tap and even more in bottles in the coolers behind the bar. Great, knowledgeable bartenders behind the bar, not just on the beers but also the area. They made an enjoyable visit even better, which is what you want a bartender to do, right? Nice outdoor seating looking right out on a great section of Front Street right in the historic district.

I never pick a specific beer by name, because there are too many to choose from! I can ask the bartenders to pick something based on a flavor profile or quality that I'm wanting in a beer, and they get it spot on every time. I like to let them choose for me! It's always a pleasant surprise when trying something new. They are also extremely helpful and friendly, letting my phone charge so that I could call an emergency ride when my car died! Great place to sit and chat and have some amazing beer.

Fun bar with nice retro stools, outdoor seating and big selection of micro brews. You can also buy packaged microbrews from a large selection of breweries.

Love this place and always like to head here when in Wilmington. Today sat at the bar and was ignored. People served before us. #annoyingasshit

Oh no! We are so sorry you felt ignored. Since you are a returning customer I'm sure you know that is not how we operate. We are very sorry we missed the mark this time. Thanks for the feedback. Please give us another shot.
Oh wait, that was the day of the Saint Patrick's parade and festival! Yeah, that was a heck of a day. There was a lot for us to keep our eyes on. Still sorry.

Went in and sat at the bar and the bartender didn't even look up. Waited for a few minutes then finally left. We got to see a few Townies trying to look cool though. Much better places on Front Street.
