This place is a family friendly restaurant and bar that is very busy, especially on the weekends during the summer which is when I have visited both times. Lots of folks from all walks of life enjoying dinner, beers, or drinks. Towards the end of the summer, there can be a fairly long wait for a table.

Beers were well poured though served in pint glasses (at least they were not chilled). Decent temperatures for the beers but pours were maximized with minimal (if any) head.

Servers in the restaurant are just food servers and knew nothing about the beers but the bartender was somewhat knowledgeable about the beers and their breadth of distribution. All servers and bartenders that I encountered were friendly and attentive.

Pretty decent selection and a fair number of semi-local NC breweries (Wilmington based for the most part). Lots of different styles with more of a focus on beers that paired well with seafood and were good in the warm weather.

Food was good though a touch on the pricey side in my opinion. Decent serving sized and very fresh tasting seafood.
