Went here on New Years Eve day. Very cool inside, spacious, high ceilings. Went with a group of 6. I wanted the sampler tray, but they were out of their IPA and the Stout, which was a bummer. Their Lemon Grass Wheat was their best offering. Food was mediocre at best. The appetizers started off good, the calamari and okra. But the main courses were not good. Got their chicken sandwich which claims to be why people visit the place. It was gross. It was breaded way too much like fish and chips, the bun was small and crumbly and very little sauce. The pulled pork tasted like tuna fish salad. My advice, go for beer instead. The beer was quite nice.

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.
