Although the prices are a little high you more than get your money's worth. Excellent atmosphere and quality with small brewing sets put on display in the dining area as well as the bar. The service was superb, all of the staff was attentive and friendly. The selections for their beers was great and we were very happy with our waiter's suggestions. The food was very well made and even had a great selection for my vegetarian friend I brought. Could not recommend this place more.

I live very close to Willibrew and have been there approximately fifty times. The atmosphere is nice, the building was the former home of an enormous post office. There is a restaurant area that is more family friendly than the bar area.

Willimantic Brewing company makes some really decent beers. They offer a wide selection of classic styles, many are released only during certain times of the year. They even make their own kombucha.

The on-tap and bottle selection is outstanding for Eastern Connecticut. This is the place to find some outstanding, hard to find, and obscure brews (they have weird beer Wednesday once a month).

The food is not very good. It is prepared ahead of time, frozen, and reheated. The food is sometimes too salty to consume. Typical American pub food fare (burgers, fries, nachos, etc.). They have specials that are sometimes a bit better than the usual menu.

Overall the place is great. It is close to a university, but manages to dodge the majority of rowdy college students. There is a reason I have been there over 50 times, and I will probably be going back again soon.
