Since 1995, we have been proudly serving the locals, students and visitors to Chapel Hill. A lot has changed in both our town and the craft beer industry since we opened our doors as the culmination of a business school plan I wrote my senior year at UNC. Today, we celebrate our North Carolina roots with a made-from-scratch menu focused on Carolina foods in a newly renovated building. I hope you enjoy a true Carolina experience here at Carolina Brewery and will look for our award winning beers on your travels throughout the Carolinas.
Cheers,
Robert Poitras

We had a group of 9 after a football game for an 8:00 reservation. We arrived early at 7:30 and they graciously allowed us to get drinks at the bar and sit at our table until the wait staff was ready for us shortly after 8:00. We all enjoyed the food and staff was friendly and efficient.

I remote hosted a birthday dinner for my daughter. I made a note in the reservation it was her 21st birthday. I called and verified the reservation and that it was her birthday. Sadly her birthday was not acknowledged in any way. That was a big bummer.

Not sure what I think about brunch here-- the Bloody Mary was underseasoned but well priced, but the omelet + potatoes was very small for 13.95. However, given the pleasant atmosphere I think had I chosen to have the burger (same price) I might have been more full at the end.

Food was good, beer was eehh. Ordered pork and pork belly tacos. Waitress was attentive. Had both IPA’s on tap and was disappointed. Not much flavor there. Two other guys in our party ordered two different kinds of beer and we couldn’t tell them apart by color or consistency. Food is good though. That’s about it.

I love the flowers in the courtyard! It made the outside seating area very pretty.

Having two entrees named the same thing made ordering a bit confusing, but my food was great when it arrived. I appreciate the willingness to make minor changes to fit my dietary restrictions. Our waiter was both friendly and knowledgeable, and we look forward to going back.

Service was poor and food was mediocre. I have been here before and this was not a typical experience. Previously both the food and service were top notch. Will chalk this up to just a bad night.

We got seated upstairs at the middle table, with other customers on both of our sides. Wish we had some space in-between, cause there were plenty of empty tables all around. We ordered guacamole as a apetize, but we never received it. The waiter couldn't figure out why it was taking so long to make that gucamole. The table to our side had a very young, energetic and talkative waitress who was engage in a loud (screeming-like) conversation about gender, sex and all other sorts of things. Wish we hadn't hear all her opinions and college experiences, and we wish our children didn't! I tried to let her know we can hear it all way too much, but she was socially clueless and had no common sense nor any professionalism! Our food was decent, the guacamole never arrived so waiter gave it to us to take home, at the end. We came home and tried it for our snack and it was oversalted! To the point where my husband who likes salty food could not even had more than one bite. I will not be returning there. No thanks.
