This is the bar that i compare every other bar by. It is great in almost every aspect. I used to go there three times a week, but then i moved and man do i miss it. I went back for a little visit a year and a half later. I walked through this familiar alley, stepped through the door, and the familiar smell of the place rushed to my nose. walked up to the bar and the bartender, Maureen jumped over the counter and gave me a big hug. Service there is amazing, they always seem to remember you. The Blue Post only serves beer/cider, no liquor, no wine. The selection runs from $1.50 PBR in a can to $5 buck Taddy Porter. Nothing to great in the selection, but some quality beers still. I believe there are 20 taps, but i havent been there in a while. The atmosphere is great. You can find everytype of person in this bar. Punk kids/ working class/ thugs/ business men/women/ sorority and fraternity people. It also has the best jukebox ever (country, punk, hip hop, everything.) Five pool tables, air hockey, old school ice hockey in the dome, darts, ping pong, old school video games, and naked photo hunt.) This bar is simply amazing, only draw back is the ventilation isnt so good and there is a lot of smoking going on there.

A good place to have fun. It's one of very few places in Wilmington that isn't the size of a mason jar. If you're with a large group of people who like pool, darts, or ski ball, this is the place to go.

I like it because it's down to Earth, comfortable, and not filled with people who are too young or too old. A good blend of regulars can always be found here, and it's easy to strike up a conversation with any stranger.

A little trivia, this is the bar that was featured in the HBO series, Eastbound and Down. It's called Shh-Boom Shh-Booms on the show.

It has been nearly six years since this place was last reviewed, so I made this stop number two on my downtown tour of Wilmington.

This place was a bit hard to find. It isnt exactly on Water Street, its kind of in between front and Water and Front street, in a downstairs area of a large concrete building. I finally found it after an exhaustive search.

A typical dive bar with a large bar and some pool tables, dart boards, and very little light. The draft selection was quite paltry. I chose a Fat Tire and the only other viable option of teh 8 they had on draft was Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. The rest were macros. The bottle selection wasnt much better.

I didnt like this place. It was dark, dank, musty, old, and the selection was horrible. Perhaps if I were a college kid looking for cheap beer, I would come back. Since I am none of the above, this first visit will be my last.
