Visited on a Wed around 5:30, very busy.

Leave the beach early, beat the crowds and hang in the back. Get the four x 7oz sampler to start. To say the least, I was very happy with our visit. I will be back. IMO, their beers are UNDERRATED!

A – Eclectic. Upstairs, rugs on the walls and hanging from the ceiling? Nice long bar. Great outdoor area in the back with live music and a place for the kids to play. Kid friendly.

Q – Fine. All the beers were served in pints, as appropriate.

S - Good service, friendly waiter, no complaints.

S - For a brew pub I thought the beers, of which there were only four at the time (kolsch, wheat, IPA and porter), were great. I was surprised at the quality and breadth. Disappointed that they had run out of the tripel. They had one guest tap - SN Torpedo.

F – Excellent! Try the hush puppies, good kids’ meals.

V - $$$ - $100 before tip for four (2 adults, 2 children). Food can be a bit pricey depending on what you order. Beers were a $$. (990 characters)

Stopped in here after a a lunch at Awful Arthurs MP 6 OBX its more of a restaurant than a brew pub/brewery clean inside with good service did not eat the food as i already ate but it looked good i ordered a flight of 4- 5oz brews , the brews were just average and they did not have many choices , this is a tourist stop as its on bypass rd #158 heavily traveled , it is close to chips wine and beer store, so go there and try this place its worth a stop (455 characters)

Went here in the summer of 2013 when I was on a vacation in the Outer Banks. Made this the one place I needed to see besides the beach.

Cool, funky atmosphere and decent food. Limited selection of beers that were pretty meh, but I was glad to try them. Not sure if I would go again unless I was really thirsty. Was a bit on the pricey side, but what do you expect for OBX? (373 characters)

If you're on the Outer Banks, this is where you will go. The place has a pretty eclectic, funky kind of vibe. You'll notice a giant wind turbine in the back, which helps to power the brewery. There's also a pirate ship playground out back for the kids. Inside, there is a ton of wall art from all over the place; everything from musical themes to superheroes, newspaper clippings to Viking profiles on burlap. It's pretty cool. Old school bar to the right of the entrance, with a lot of rustic feel and brass. Lots of table seating, as well. The staff is great. We were there with a toddler and an infant, and they were completely accommodating on a fairly busy day. There were 6 beers on tap...I'm guessing they run a little low when it's off season, and pick back up to full capacity for the tourist time. The food was great. Pretty dynamic gastro pub style offerings, with plenty of seafood, which is a must on the coast. I highly recommend stopping here if you find yourself in the OBX. (990 characters)

Stopped here during my labor day vacation. Place is pretty big. 2 floors with a large bar downstairs. Our entire party thought the food was pretty good. A little bit pricey for a brew pub but I understand it's a vacation spot. They only had 4 beers on tap. I tried all four and found them all pretty mediocre. Maybe the best place around the outer banks area but that isn't saying much. (390 characters)

Decent food selection, nothing special, expected a lot more given what we had read before our visit.

Flights were a nice option. Beer was good. Their signature beer with Lemongrass was ok (not worth $16 for a 4pk though). (224 characters)
