Overall, I love Foothills. It's a great local watering hole, and they bring a nice dimension to craft brew in the Triad. The brews are all above average, and the food (if you order correctly) is delicious. I recommend the fish and chips or Reuben for lunch. If you're there for dinner, I'd recommend the hunter's pie or a burger and fries. Make sure to try the beer ketchup.

My favorite brews are the Torch Pilsner and Seeing Double IPA. The others are all good, but tend to land on the dark and sweet side of every style they try.

The big dining room is often very loud, so I suggest sitting at the bar for almost any occasion, as long as you can stand smoke.

I have only one major complaint. Lately on Thursday nights during trivia, they have been serving beer in Dixie Cups. When I asked for an actual pint glass the server rolled his eyes like I was some kind of jerk. Not only am I not a frat boy, the Dixie cups don't hold quite as much beer.

If you avoid drinking on Thursdays, you'll be fine. (1,004 characters)

Stopped in on our way from Raleigh to Asheville on a Sunday afternoon. The whole neighborhood was pretty quiet and there was plenty of space in the dining and bar area. Very friendly waitstaff. Nice variety of food to choose from. We brought our one year old daughter and felt very comfortable having her there. Had the IPA of the Month for July. It was excellent. I wish we could've stayed longer. Definitely recommend this to anyone in the area. (447 characters)

Foothills is a Winston Salem staple and they make some damn good beers. They usually have a pretty good selection of stuff on tap and you can fill growlers and get bottles to go. The service has been up and down everytime I've been there. If you are a regular or semi regular it's pretty good but sometimes you just kind of sit around without anyone to tend to you or fill up your water.

The food is ok. It's standard pub food with some unique offerings from the chef. I think the calamari and loaded fries are the best apps on their menu. The Cuban, fish and chips and caesar salad have all been ok. Overall a great place for beer especially on celebrations like Sexual Chocolate release! (691 characters)
