Atmosphere. I quite like the atmoshphere of a spacious room with a great back grass area with live music and a place for the kids to run around. It is a cross between a college bar, a modern restaurant and a barn or silo building. Interesting and comfortable.

Quality. Good quality, except for the beer which was exceedingly average except for Sledgehammer and Tongs which was well above average.

Service. Very good indeed. Every one was kind, patient and responsive. The waiter brought out a "rush order" for the kids within about 3 minutes.

Selection. Five "house" beers and one guest tap (the very good Allagash White), along with lots and lots of bottles means that the selection was not extensive but fair.

Food. This is where this place really shines. Simply exemplary food. I had the sesame seared Tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes and it was excellent.

Value: All things considered, a reasonable value.

Great atmosphere. Festive, fun, and busy. Waitstaff is on point. Food selection and quality is excellent. Brewery beer is good! Definitely a place worthy of return visits.

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

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?

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.
