This was a great restaurant in a great location. The Shrimp and Grits was amazing, and the best we've ever had! We stopped on our way through and had to stop on the way back home. It was totally worth it! My picky child loved it too!

Front Street Brewery is a good place to have pretty good food for a very reasonable price in downtown Wilmington. They have good lunch and dinner items along with the typical bar fare. It being a brewery, they have a ton of different beer options, new brews to try, and always a beer or drink or two on special.

Not going to say this is the best option downtown, but its something reasonable to go eat downtown and not spend a ton of money but still have a good time. However, definitely worth a try.

We had to wait approx. 25 minutes for a table, and it was probably the worst table in the entire restaurant...on the 2nd floor in the corner, where the wait staff congregate. Granted the restaurant was busy,but the food took another 25 minutes to arrive, and was completely overcooked (fish), the fries were at best, luke warm/cold, and the waitress informed us that the kitchen forget to cook our child's meal. So, needless to say, we will not be returning, and will not recommend this restaurant to others.

The beer is very good as advertised. We both thought the service was very awkward and poor. The inside is very tavern like, but really showing age and is kind of run down in appearance. The menu was very average bar food. A little disappointed to be honest. Our son is attending UNCW and we are looking for a few good spots to count in when traveling to Wilmington and were hoping this would be one.

We visited Front Street Brewery on a Sunday night while vacationing. It looked bush from the outside but we were seated immediately. The menu has many options. I had the burger and it was delicious. They brew their own beer for $1.99 per glass. Very old and rustic building that has been preserved. It was very clean and the staff members were friendly. Definitely try it.
