Another wonderful brunch at The West End Wine Bar & Pub. Enjoyed a beautiful summer day eating our excellent meals on the terrace. Great food, super wine selections by glass or bottle, wonderful staff. A favorite.

Perfect dining experience for an evening out to dinner with friends. Excellent food and extensive wine list. The service was great. Perfect combination of excellent food in a friendly, warm environment. This wasn't our first visit and won't be our last! Thank you, West End!

West End Wine Bar was a wonderful surprise!! Delicious food, lovely atmosphere in the dining room, and friendly and efficient service. We are from Maryland, so we have a pretty high bar for crab cakes... WEWB’s crab cakes are packed full of back-fin meat and taste great. There’s no other way to put it!! We had the smoked burrata caprese salad - the tomato’s were so flavorful. Of course, we couldn’t leave without dessert, lavender and honey creme brûlée - oh so decadent! We visit LoCo a lot - we will definitely return to WEWB.

Fabulous Sunday Brunch! Our only problem, selecting our order from the menu because we wanted everything. We will definitely return!

This was our first time there and we went with another couple who had been there before. All four of us were very pleased with West End in all respects.

Food was awesome, smaller environment which makes for a more intermit service which I like. Check the downstairs bar, very friendly and cool place to hang out.

we celebrated our 51st. wedding anniversary at this restaurant and had a terrific meal with exceptional service from the entire staff. We were complimented by all for celebrating our event at their establishment and were given a complimentary desert to take home. A wonderful venue in a very beautiful location.

Hubby had shrimp and I had halibut. The halibut could use more flavor. The shrimp was delicious. I forgot to ask if the fish was wild caught or farmed. They need to add that important piece of info to the menu for seafood. They could use some fans outside. Great service. Our server was fantastic.

We have been to West End several times over the past year and this time, we were relatively underwhelmed. We made reservations, and despite the restaurant being relatively empty, were sat right next to a larger party resulting in a less ideal dining environment. It was hard to pick something from the new menu that sounded appealing, and the food was really so-so. The icing on the cake is the new manager spent at least 10 minutes socializing and catching up on personal stories to yet an other larger party that they sat on the other side of us, while we waited a lengthy bit for our cocktail refills and had to listen to their rather loud conversation.

Overall, for the price of the menu, not worthwhile. Check out The Wine Kitchen or Market Table Bistro for better experiences, menus and service.

We sat out on your beautiful patio for an early dinner, then went into the pub for your version of an Irish Coffee. The food and service was great. Fantastic experience all around!

Went there for our Anniversary. Ate on the patio with a wonderful guitar player playing and singing in the background. The food was great. My only complainant is the waitress took my wife's fork after the the appetizer and did not bring a new one, then disappeared and we had to go inside and get our own. Over all it was a wonderful experience.

We went to West End for the first time for Easter Brunch. The atmosphere is bright and a nice blend of upscale and relaxed. Our waitress was attentive while allowing us to enjoy the meal and conversation. The menu is a nice blend of classics with a twist.

Not so much a pub, but a nice dining experience. We went on a Wed. night so the pub was not busy. Extensive list of wine and few beers on draft. The limited menu fits our style (we firmally believe that huge menus="eh" food, and what we ordered was delicious: steamed mussels, crab sandwich, and hamburger. Was it worth the price? Yes, but not impressed with the "duck fries", which I assume are popular in Duck, NC.

Our party of four had a lovely evening at the West End from start to finish. First, we were impressed with the warm, cozy ambience of the dining area. The noise level was low, so we were able to converse easily. We were happy with everything we ordered, particularly the halibut, wine and creme brulee. The service was friendly and attentive. The four of us agreed we would return soon.

Overall rating would have been 5, but the noise level was deafening. If I go back, I will sit upstairs instead of in the Pub.
