Lots of fun within a small confined area. Loved the selection in the Jukebox. I am almost 40 and was impressed with the song selections. Was able to play metallica - for whom the bell tolls. Was drunk in nostalgia and also enjoyed the free pretzels. I apologize to the other patrons for eating most of the pretzels. will definitely... More

Bartender not adding appropriate amounts. Yes, their bottles have pour spouts used to controlled flow, but bartender must not put his finger over the tip of the spout. He must actually allow liquid to flow through it. Obviously, our bartender Saturday night was making up for the give- a- way drinks. Technique used by bartenders to steal by under pouring... More

- A little hole in the wall we found walking around one night. Went in because of the cool skeleton sign outside the door. Is in the stone basement of a restaurant. - Music was a jukebox and it was a variety of everything. - Most people in there seemed like regulars and friends. Very tiny inside. - We had... More

This was a very nice pub to come across the streets of downtown Wilmington on a busy night. It's very quaint with a few tables and pool/ fooze ball tables to use. Drinks were inexpensive and food was good at a decent price too.

This is a bar, not a restaurant. On Sunday evenings you'll find one of the owners holding forth with a trivia game, and a reasonable crowd of locals doing some serious drinking. The only food in sight is pretzels, but they're crisp. Figure five or six beers on draft; good choice for hard liquor if that's your flavor. Dark interior,... More

Neat old place tucked into the basement of the building. There is also an outdoor area. Bartender was very friendly and the beer was nice and cold!

They have Cards Against Humanity, a full bar, music, and a friendly bartender. I don't need to expand any further. Go there and experience the cave.

I'd been here before on a Haunted Pub crawl and brought some friends visiting from out of town down to Lula's for a drink. I told them about the pub crawl and the history of the pub as I'd learned it from our tour guide. They don't serve fancy, complicated drinks here. Keep it simple. You enter through a tunnel... More

Best bar in Wilmington, N.C. A very laid back atmosphere and very much enjoyed the people I met while hanging out there. I played foosball and talked about "The Serbian Film" the first night I was there. I was in Wilmington for a week and made it a point to stop in here every night. It had the kind of... More

We're just a cellar-dwelling neighborhood pub in a 170 year old room. Hidden beneath and behind The Little Dipper fondue restaurant at the corner of Front and Orange. Our motto: If you can't find us, there's a reason.
