“Local gem”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Visited on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Pleasantly surprised by the number of kids and dogs. Extremely laid back, and apparently the live music every Sunday is bluegrass. Great way to close our holiday!

“Local Treasure - must see.”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This place is an old grocery store and they've left a lot of the brick work exposed and the beams in the ceilings. Great atmosphere, eclectic crowd. You'll see at least 4 dogs in the place at any one time. both inside and outside areas and the walls open up to give it an airy feel. Great live music on weekends and they show movies during the week (one even a kid movie). this is very much a neighborhood bar and a classic hole in the wall. Kid friendly until night time. This is one of those places you want to go to when you're in town. hang with the locals. Lots of beers to choose from, some liquor, but mostly a beer place. don't worry that it looks like it's in a bad section of town. this is one of the areas of Wilmington that is up and coming.
