    Saturday's dj is better than the one on Friday... Don't know his name though! The bar downstairs is great if you want to skip the craziness on the dance floor!

    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.

  • Greg V.

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

    Best view! Good food during day, THE place to go on Saturday night - if you can stand that like OR get there early, come for dinner and have you drinks. Love the old well white

    Their beer is lovely, though expensive. Location is dynamite. Sit on the patio for a classic Chapel Hill experience.

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

    A great, "oops I had 60oz of beer in 30 minutes" type of place.

    If the blueberry beer is out of season, there is NO problem in falling back on the Old Well White

    Jason M · March 1, 2013
  • Sarah Y.

    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.

    Sarah Yates · January 9, 2013
  • David P.

    This place makes the best beer!

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

  • Robby M.

    Eat dinner here earlier in the evening, and let the party form around you instead of waiting in line to get in at night.

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

    This is a beer place

  • Jonathan R.

    The blueberry wheat is surprisingly excellent and not overwhelmingly fruity

    Jonathan Robinson · September 5, 2012
  • Miranda

    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!

    Black and tan. That is all.

    Ordered some late night pizza and it hit the spot!

    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.

    Nicole Mark · June 28, 2012
  • Young-Nan

    Lizard chips & their blueberry wheat! 

    Young-Nan · June 24, 2012
  • Deniz

    Great place to sit outside and enjoy the view but the food is not very good when they are busy.

    Deniz · June 10, 2012
  • Tyson L.

    The pizza is amazing, especially when it's half-off from 5-7 every day!

    Katie is the best!!!

    Choo Choo chocolate stout.. Really good, one of the few that have the chocolate taste and not just the smell

    Stop by Back Bar for 1/2 off pizza & wings daily between 5-7pm

    Do not order the calimari. It's all about the view. Must get a table on the rail looking down on Franklin street
