This restaurant and brewery exceeded our expectations. We had a pleasant experience from the moment we walked into the restaurant until we left. The hostesses, waitress, and Gen Mgr Jason were all professional and friendly. The beer flight, charcuterie appetizer, and main entrees were all great. Make this a stop on your next Salisbury trip!

Our server was fantastic. We were frazzled from the day and he recognized this and was very attentive. the halibut chef choice was very good. Well prepared.

The service was great and I wish I was hungrier to try more of the food. The avocado toast sampler was pretty good, as we're the deviled eggs. The beer was the highlight of the brunch for sure.

I skipped my usual EVO Burger craving and ordered the Filet. It was seasoned and cooked perfectly. My sister and her husband both enjoyed the fresh sea scallops. Beer options are endless, and the wine options will not disappoint!

A home run on all fronts! Great beer, excellent food, and friendly staff! The food is better than your usual pub fare, with creative dishes prepared with local ingredients. My wife and I had had a long, hot, dirty day, cleaning out an old house. We needed a fun, relaxing restaurant with good food and drink, and Evolution was perfect! Next time I'm in the area, I plan to got to Evolution again.

Our party of eight went here to celebrate our daughter's college graduation. A number of us cannot eat gluten and Evo Public House has a number of delicious gluten free dishes - especially the risotto. Everyone in our party agreed that their meal was delicious!

They do not have gluten free options for dessert so we brought our own gluten free cake. The service could not have been better. Would love to go back.

I have typically found EVO overpriced for the value of the food. I wanted to try their brunch since the menu looked so good, but unfortunately picked Mother's Day for that day. Their full brunch menu was not available and instead was a $28 buffet. I can understand spending $28 on a buffet, but the price wasn't worth what they offered. There was pasta salad that looked to be from Walmart, bacon, sausage, brisket hash (this was good), potatoes, bacon, pancakes (burnt), omelet station (limited items - I believe 6), brisket (this was good too), bread that I know was from Walmart, and beignets (these were okay). The mimosas were $5. My bill was over $130 for 4 people. Absurd!

Always a stellar evening at Evo. Sad to hear they are loosing Mark, but no doubts the rest of the team will carry the weight. Collin was a great training server and Dean is always so incredibly friendly! Can't wait for our next meal!

Tasty food, great fresh beer, and outdoor patio seating are all excellent!! Nice place to stop on the way to or from the beach. View of gravel and dusty parking lot does not detract from the overall excellent dining experience. Bought some bottled beer to take home. Will return!

Used to love this place - not anymore. New girl at the front who rather than focusing on how to make customers happy, she tells you how things are.

Food was good - farm salad and garlic bread not advertised.

Used to love this place and came here often. Now I feel unwelcome.

The worst experience we ever had here. We usually eat here once or twice a month. To start with, they said we did not have a reservation, then they put us at a high table when I requested a standard. They found a standard and moved us to the dining room. We sat at the table for twenty minutes with absolutely no one ever acknowledging that we were there. There was wait staff serving all around us, but I guess they thought we were red headed step children who nobody wants to talk to. We got up and left. As we were going out the door a very nice young lady said thank you and asked how our meal was. We told her we were never served as we were walking past her. She put the plates down she was carrying and tried to get us to come back, but we had had it and left. Don't know if we will ever come back We are very disappointed with your establishment.

great food; cheese and meat appetizer were outstanding, steak was perfect and cooked as requested (medium rare). Good service as well. Only suggestion is not serving main course so close to appetizer. I avoid chain restaurants for that reason.

Food was delicious. Brittany was an awesome and polite server. However was seated next to the door for the private party area which was loud and the door opening and slamming closed throughout our meal was disturbing to say the least.

Service was great very attentive I had the clams they were a little too small for the amount of spice in the sauce. Middle necks would have been better. I also had the burger a little overdone and my roll a bit stale

We stop in Salisbury on our route to FL. This was our 3d visit to EVO. The beer selection is varied and the 4 sample beer flights are good. Kale and Quinoa salad is now more elegantly presented, but still tasty and filling. Charcuterie selection is good too. A fun place and good food.
