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.
