Outstanding brew-pub located downtown Durham. The variety of beer, along with fantastic burgers, make this place a must stop while in Durham.
Located downtown Durham parking is limited. However, I have never had a hard time finding a spot although you may be required to walk a few blocks. I enjoy the atmosphere. Walk in and you can either sit at the bar and order food and drinks, or order from the ordering station and have a seat and the food will be delivered.
The beers is excellent. Always a light golden ale and carmaly pale ale on draft. The beer is the paradigm of session ales. Lots of "light" beer but full of flavor. Constant rotation of seasonals and never disappoint. Recently had a Peanut Butter Porter on tap along with thier fantastic american barleywine winter warmer. Service is always outstanding and friendly. Cheers.
Highly recommend this place if you are near.

Had dinner with a flight of beers here back in late May/Early June 2014. One thing that really stood out to me was the play area towards the back designed specifically to keep kids busy while their parents eat or drink. This is just brilliant. This should be in every restaurant and more importantly, in every brewery.
I was impressed by what I remember were lots of local ingredients on the menu and that helped to temper the seemingly higher prices and smaller portions. Yes, you may be disappointed by your portions here. But you won't be disappointed by the food.
We had the pickle chips to start and they were very tasty if far too few to feed our big group. We ended up ordering another of these. I had the burger with pimento cheese because when you see pimento cheese on a menu and it's linked to a burger you order that shit and don't ask questions. It was fire.
As for the beer, which of course is why I really decided to eat here, the lineup at Bull City was very respectable. The standouts for me were the Parrish Street Pale Ale with its tad of sweetness and a floral taste and aroma and the 27701 Durham Mild Ale with it's huge, robust flavors despite the tiny 3.5% ABV. I enjoyed all of the other beers with the one exception being the smoked rye beer that had none of the smokiness or smoked ham flavor I like in a beer and was cloyingly sweet.
I also appreciated the bench-style seating and kind of free-for-all, line-through-the-restaurant ordering system as it made me feel more than comfortable about our nutty group of children running around.
The service was fairly quick and polite, there's wine for those of you foolish enough not to enjoy beer, and an outdoor patio as well (if I remember correctly).
Overall, a great stop for us in Durham.
