    The atmosphere is high-energy on game days! My husband loves the craft beer with blueberries. I had an amazing Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Chicken Sandwich on the deck. Love the t-shirts, too.

    Outdoor seating is great especially on a nice day because you overlook Franklin street. Go for the short ribs or fried chicken!

    If you want Chicken parmigiana (which is not on the menu) you can ask your waiter/waitress for it and its really delicious.

    Love the beers and atmosphere, but the food is average at best. We celebrated New Year's Eve here and had a blast but were sorely disappointed in the food.

    When the blueberry wheat goes out of season, the cran-apple wheat becomes your best bet. Served with a seasonal apple slice. :)

    The soy burger was an unexpected find and reasonably priced. Service was a little disappointing but the food and beer made up for it.

    The restaurant supposedly has a breakfast buffet on Sundays with a bloody mary bar -- I need to investigate this, especially if ToPo is going to start distilling its own vodka!

    Cask-conditioned ales are available in the back bar. It's a throwback to when beer was made before pasteurization. Enjoy a beer brewed right on site. Read more

    It's worth going once for the experience, but I think this place is overrated. Average food and service. It is a Chapel Hill institution, though.
