Great food, friendly and efficient staff, and excellent beer brewed on site. Well worth the hour-plus ride for me.

Went there at 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon and the pub was packed. The restaurant side (where we sat) had some tables but was pretry hopping too. I suppose it's because it's right next to the ECSU campus. The beer was interesting if not amazing (i had a Gruit and a sour IPA) and my Dad's Riesling was fine. But... More

Hubby and I love to venture around wherever we stay and find local breweries. Glad we found Willimantic Brewing on a Friday afternoon. Nice assortment of beers on tap, both brewed in-house and guest beers. Bought a growler of S.W.A.K. Stout. Hubby had the lunch special of Cajun crawfish. I had the spinach mushroom flat bread. We also split jalapeno... More

The Willimantic Brewing Co in Willimantic, CT. is hands down fantastic! The brew pub is housed in an old style post office building. The building's atmosphere carries over to the menu where the items are identified by zip codes! How fun is that? The food is really good. I am fond of the Tolland Tuna Melt (06084) and Columbia Reuben... More

The Willimantic Brewing Company/Main Street Café is a living landmark restaurant and pub brewery located in Willimantic, in the heart of rural northeastern Connecticut.Our original Main Street Café was founded in 1991, and began operations as a small deli in the old Capitol Theatre building on Main Street in Willimantic, CT. Occupying both the lobby and concession area of the theatre, seating was limited to 50 people. After 3 years we were bursting at the seams and made the move to 877 Main Street, another historic building. There we expanded to a full service restaurant and featured American craft-brewed beers and an extensive menu. One more move was in the cards for us, and we made yet another trek down Main Street to our home in the current granite and limestone 1909 U.S. Post Office Building.
