Pulled chicken nachos were super. Raspberry Wheat beer was tasty. Manny was a very good server and she was gracious enough to help us locate some delicious seafood.

Front Street was by far my favorite restaurant in downtown. The food is one of a kind. The service was fantastic.

What a great way to finish the season! Make sure you get a flight of their beers! Atmosphere is bar crazy and the mix of local beers is well worth any waiting.

Our favorite Wilmington brewery. Great selection of beer and food. Always bring our friends by here whenever we’re in town. Wish they did more beer festivals and events in the Piedmont/western part of the state.More

Seven of us went to Front Street for a Holiday luncheon, after my recommendation. At the time it seemed like a good idea. We waited about 30 minutes, but since they do not take reservations, we expected to wait especially since we were a party...More
