  • Welcome to College

    Your visit to UNC is not complete without a stop to the nice restaurant on the 3rd floor of this building! The outside deck looks over Franklin St. and is the place to be on a Thurs, Fri, Sat night.

    Solid location for people watching. Great in summertime to sit outside but part of the outdoor area has heat lamps, so ok in fall too.

    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.

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

    Ask for a strong & girly (aka Stoli Family) if you need something good, fresh and sweet that gets you drunk fast. Careful though; two straight, and you are likely to get a blackout.

    The outside deck is great on a warm night! It provides for great people watching since it looks out on Franklin St. I haven't tried many of the beers, but I hear they are good. The wines are decent!
