Parking is a pain in the ass. We drove around the streets for 15 minutes at least before finally coming on an open spot on the street about a half mile away. Walking to the restaurant, I was surprised by how lively and vibrant downtown Greensboro is. There are a ton of bars and night spots, and a ton of people at them.
Natty Greene’s immediately seemed like a hip, lively joint. Located on the corner of a large, red brick building, the interior features a lot of exposed brick, a high-ceilinged, long-ass room, a bar in the back and not nearly enough seating for their popularity. It was past 8:00 at night and the wait was still on the order of an hour.
Luckily, we slid into a spot at the bar. The service was a bit slow and impersonal, but they were pretty busy and we were on the end, so I give them a bit of a pass. The beer on tap came in a wide variety. Five or six standard ales topped the list that they bottle and distribute regularly. The second half featured six to eight special, seasonal pub brews that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else but the pub itself, which I’m always a big fan of. We went through samples of all of the beers not available year-round. While I found most of them to be solid sessions, none were outstanding and some were downright bad. The lagers and wheats were too light and the IPA was way too bitter up front with a terrible finish.
The food menu is pretty expansive. Your typical pub fare is dressed up enough to make it sound interesting, but not so much as to make it sound pretentious. We went with smokin’ turkey sandwich rounded out by raspberry mayo and Poseidon wrap filled with Mediterranean toppings and shrimp. I’m pretty sure the turkey sandwich came out wrong, as there wasn’t any raspberry in it, and the Poseidon was pretty good, but nothing to return for.
Overall, while I certainly wouldn’t complain about having Natty Greene’s in my hometown, I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit again, either.

I really enjoyed my visit to Natty Greene's as did my entire group of 14 family members. Despite the large group they were very accommodating. The service was excellent as our waitress was very friendly and had a relatively strong knowledge of the beer and food. The game room was wonderful for our kids as my 16 year old spent $10 on the vintage video game. The beers were all of Natty's flagship plus a ton of seasonal making our choices far more fun. Plan on making back there next year.

Locals seem to love this place. Being new to the area and a beer fanatic I pretty much ask everyone where to go to get good beer. I have been there twice so far and would say it is very average. Maybe being from Northeast Ohio I am spoiled by amazing places like The Brew Kettle, Fat Heads, and Great Lakes. The beer is average and the food is average. I really like the location and it would be a great place to sit outside and people watch. I am sure I will be going to Natty Greene's many more times.

Visited in May 2013 while visiting my girlfriend from Chicago. Being a Mosaic fan, I instantly opted for the Alchemy Trial Batch, a Mosaic IPA. Clear, crisp. the fruity and flowery mosaic hops with a clean finish had me wishing I could take a growler with me back to Chicago. I ordered an ahi tuna sandwich which was tender, red, and just the right consistency. Not half cooked, not so raw as to where you'd swear you were eating ground raw tuna. The bread wasn't tasteless either, and had texture. A wonderful lunch. Although the decor was a little to 1800's for me, I'm sure it goes along with the culture of the company. Game room upstairs. I would've liked to spend nights there drinking and shooting pool, but only if they had Alchemy Trial.
