The fried chicken is delicious! The food options are typical bar/grill choices but I enjoy the extra flare this restaurant adds. The outside seating is a nice touch and there is a fenced in mulch/garden area where the kids can walk around in while waiting for their food. Great family place!

Take it from a brewer who loves great pub food, this is a yummy place! The craft beers are A+, the food is best of class and the service is amazing. Prices are very reasonable. We're from Ohio and when we are visiting friends in Pittsboro we always come here. It is ALWAYS crowded and we've always had a wait.... More

It is my go to place when meeting friends for lunch as they have nice booths, good food and are accommodating if you want to enjoy a leisurely lunch and gab session. I often get the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich which is delicious. You can get either French fries, chips or fruit. Good time today.

First, let's start with, the food was really good. Nothing stood out in particular but, the taste was definitely there. Now, maybe my opinion is a bit skewed based on a history of working in the food industry but, the service was awful. Eryn, was inattentive and wrong in her descriptions of menu items that we asked about. We needed... More

We eat here primarily by ordering take out. My husband and I absolutely love the Steak Frites! Their homemade steak sauce is out of this world!

We have been here twice before...there are usually 5 of us in our group. The greeter acted like we were a gigantic bother. There were many empty tables but it still took 20 minutes or so to seat us. This happened the previous two times also. The foods okay to good, but nothing special. We only tried here again because... More

IMHO, the food outshines the beer, which admittedly was decent, but my Fried Green Tomato burger with pimiento cheese was inspired! All sorts of sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, many in line with the locavore trend, ingredients sourced within earshot.

Came with five adults and two children. Greeter acted like they didn't want us there. Told us it would be a 30 minute wait even though there were many empty tables. We went elsewhere.

I went in to photograph a burger for a magazine and it definitely did not disappoint. Delicious burger and fantastic atmosphere.

Stopped for lunch on our way to New Bern. Dining room was cold as was my lunch. I had the chicken mac & cheese which was supposed to include chicken and bacon mixed in with the mac & cheese. No bacon, the mac & cheese was cold and only marginally okay. Wife had a fried tomato burger, which was good.... More
