    Great food! Our table of 6 had things off the brunch menu and the shrimp boil special menu. Delicious! Our server Maxine is friendly and efficient.

    Carolina Brewery Pittsboro is a wonderful neighborhood establishment. They have a rotating menu so even if you dine there frequently you have new things to try. They, however, have their stand-by Southern comfort food along with some vegan and vegetarian options. All their dishes are amply sized and are good values. They are good about letting you substitute among their array of sides in case the listed side dish doesn’t meet your liking. I am not a beer drinker but my friends who drink beer easily find beers they love. They have a wine menu that has been carefully curated and has enough variety to match whatever food item you select. Finally, I would remiss if I didn’t mention their friendly and efficient wait staff. Kim has been our wait person our last several visits and has been great every time.

    The CB Pittsboro goes beyond being just a neighborhood gem. The food is excellent; you can’t really go wrong with anything you choose. The lemon butter garlic salmon is the best version of a long line of changing fish dishes in my humble assessment. My friends all really enjoy the plethora of beers on tap. I don’t drink beer; my occasionally wine choice has led me to the Josh Cellars as a good option. The wait staff are all great. We have been helped by Kim on our last few visits. She is beyond attentive and helpful.

    Carolina Brewery Pittsboro is a real gem. If you enjoy beer they serve high quality, award winning draft beer brewed on site. They, also, have a good wine menu and provide a generous pour. You, however, don’t need to enjoy beer or wine to appreciate CB Pittsboro. They serve a rotating menu of excellent dishes, they accommodate substitutions and the waits are efficient and friendly. They have a bar food special menu that is extra low priced before 6:00 p.m. ; they are a neighborhood establishment but, are worth the drive even if you don’t live in Pittsboro.

    Excellent wait person; really good service. She made sure we knew about the early bird bar specials and took that order first so we could take advantage before the 4-6 time expired. Appreciated the outdoor seating. Despite being a cool night it was quite pleasant with the outdoor heaters.

    Food was burnt and service was slow. I requested a burger medium and it was hard and black/burnt. They recooked but then I had to get a Togo box and didn’t get to eat with my party, and when I ate the new burger it was still not cooked medium and was overdone.

    I do love booth seating, however, the booths are not supported well on the back. The person in the adjoining booth slammed into the booth back frequently. I stop resting on the back at that point, which was at the beginning of the meal. We will ask for a table if we return.

    What a great experience! We’ve eaten there for years, and always have enjoyed it thoroughly, but our last experience was extraordinary. We brought our grandson who really wanted to try the fish tacos, but was unsure about some of the toppings. The waitress said they could serve everything on the side, and the chef complied perfectly! He got served his tacos and then there was another dish with 10 ramekins of the different toppings, which looked awesome, and he had a ball tasting and creating his tacos. That required extra effort on the kart of the staff, but it was greatly appreciated.

    Food is just okay. Service was weird. Two servers were in our area but chose to have very lengthy conversations with customers at various tables. Each time we ordered a drink or course in our meal it took at least 20 min. For the server to return to our table and inform us they were out of that beer, dessert or entrée. Normally wings are served with celery sticks but for ten wings two 3” celery sticks? Really!

    I have been to this restaurant several times in the past ad each time it seems to get worse and worse. I haven’t been in over a year because of the last experience and today I was reminded why. When we walked in, we could see there were only maybe 5 other tables with people in the entire restaurant. We stood at the hostess stand for a good 10 minutes or more before anyone came to seat us. There was even a waitress that came up to the stand and didn’t so much as acknowledge us to say “someone will be right with you.” Nothing. When the hostess finally arrived, she grabbed two menus and began to walk to a table. We had to just assume that meant to follow her because she literally did not say one word to us. Lead us to a table, put the menus down, and off she went. It was then another 10 minutes or more before our server acknowledged us. We ordered and in the meantime, my husbands glass went empty and did not get refilled until the food came. He enjoyed his burger. I ordered the club sandwich and it was awful. How do you make a bad sandwich? It was supposed to have ham and turkey but only had ham and maybe a tiny piece of turkey, and the meat was only on one half of each half of the sandwich. If I picked up the sandwich half, one side of it was just lettuce and bread. I didn’t finish the sandwich and really only took about two bites out of it, but the waitress didn’t bother to ask about it. The chips were just okay. When it was time to pay and leave, the waitress was nowhere to be found. We sat there for about 15 min waiting to finally see her and then had to call her over so we could pay. Overall, I was extremely disappointed. I used to love this place several years ago. This was the last chance for me - We won’t be back.

    The food was good BUT….the wait to get the food was 50 min. We had 2 kids with us and 2 adults. The waitress kept telling us she was sorry bout its always this way. It was nt even crowded as a matter of fact just the opposite. If you have an hour to spare before you get to eat it’s fine , otherwise. Go somewhere else.
