Hubby and I love to venture around wherever we stay and find local breweries. Glad we found Willimantic Brewing on a Friday afternoon. Nice assortment of beers on tap, both brewed in-house and guest beers. Bought a growler of S.W.A.K. Stout. Hubby had the lunch special of Cajun crawfish. I had the spinach mushroom flat bread. We also split jalapeno... More

The Willimantic Brewing Co in Willimantic, CT. is hands down fantastic! The brew pub is housed in an old style post office building. The building's atmosphere carries over to the menu where the items are identified by zip codes! How fun is that? The food is really good. I am fond of the Tolland Tuna Melt (06084) and Columbia Reuben... More

Love the Willimantic Brewing CO (AKA Main Street Café). Was the post office for me growing up in Willimantic. Great character and awesome food and drink. Barry the bartender, is the BEST!!! Always knows his stuff and serves it with a smile! Highly recommend the chicken nachos, piled sky high!

Have never had a bad meal. Awesome vegetarian options. Brewering right inside. Can have a pub experience one one side, or family/couples dining experience on other side of the building. Highly recommend for family and kids or for night life.

Our first time in this fantastic pub, as we arrived before watching UCONN Huskies Women's Basketball team win their record-setting 100th consecutive game. Our spirits were high – and they got even higher at this brew pub. Each of us had a different brew crafted right there. Each one was top-notch and totally enjoyable. Each of us had a different...

This place is always busy every day of the week. Excellent food and waitstaff. Well known for the beer they brew but I've never had any. However everything else is great. I especially love the building!

We always enjoy Willibrew. I love the soft pretzels with beer cheese sauce. Chili is spicy! Good burgers. Great selection of beers on tap. On weekends there 's often a long wait even though there are often several empty tables, that's annoying, maybe they just have enough wait staff for all the tables, be we always wait, it's worth it.

Thank sjkrkk

The Willimantic Brewing Company/Main Street Café is a living landmark restaurant and pub brewery located in Willimantic, in the heart of rural northeastern Connecticut.Our original Main Street Café was founded in 1991, and began operations as a small deli in the old Capitol Theatre building on Main Street in Willimantic, CT. Occupying both the lobby and concession area of the theatre, seating was limited to 50 people. After 3 years we were bursting at the seams and made the move to 877 Main Street, another historic building. There we expanded to a full service restaurant and featured American craft-brewed beers and an extensive menu. One more move was in the cards for us, and we made yet another trek down Main Street to our home in the current granite and limestone 1909 U.S. Post Office Building.
