Service was very good - friendly and efficient. The food was pretty weak unfortunately. The space is good but the lighting is so bright it makes it feel like a cafeteria.

Ok was very disappointing. Fries were served cold and food overall was mediocre. Our server was nice and the ambiance was cool but I will not be back.

Good food, good beer, and great service. Sat outside on a beautiful Saturday evening. Had a giant pretzel with finger licking good cheese sauce, Buffalo cauliflower, and blood orange IPA to start. Best entree was Daniela’s pasta, but everything was delicious.

Service by Will was outstanding.

Will definitely return next time we are in town.

Good cold beer. Attentive service. And if this is possible...fancy barfood?
Barbacoa sandwich was outstanding. Surprisingly quiet for a Friday night 9pm, but then again it was summer break.

Ok to good food, beer, atmosphere and service. This place has lots of potential, but not quite there. We enjoyed it overall though.

We had a great time at Clouds! I ate there with a group of 20 people, but had only made a reservation for 16 inside (there’s always someone who doesn’t RSVP). On top of that, last minute we asked to be moved to the outdoor patio. The staff were all super nice and had us all moved quickly, even though they had already setup space for us indoors. They really went above and beyond to make us comfortable, even with a last minute change of space and the extra people!

Overall the staff were really friendly, the food and drinks were good, and the space (both inside and out) is very pleasant. I would highly recommend!

Surprised at how poor the service was. Had a great experience at the Raleigh location 2 days earlier-They had a wonderful staff. In Durham, everyone was barely nice at times, very dismissive. The Hamburger was outstanding.

Hidden gem! Fabulous food. They do the classics well, but also add uniquely their own specialty sandwiches and selections. We had brunch and sat outside under
a tree. Brightleaf is an enclosed small pedestrian mall. So peaceful. A great venue. The beer is delicious too and an amazing selection. we will go back! Inside is a big sports bar. Looked like fun

Food was excellent. Our friends had gotten the big pretzel about a week prior and did not recommend as they felt it had been reheated and tasted stale, but we got one anyway and it was excellent. Beer cheese is very good. French Toast, Big Breakfast, Breakfast Burrito and Chicken and Waffles were all very good - grits are fabulous. We tried several Clouds beers and they were all excellent as well. Will be back to try the avocado toast soon!
Service was very slow and they were not super busy; I believe they were short-staffed as our waitress complained of having too many jobs that afternoon.

We loved our brunch. The only downside was that when the sun went away, it was chilly. If there were some heaters it would have been perfect!! The beef taco was amazing, and the steak salad was delicious!!
