Great food, awesome beer selection, and cool vibe. Definitely worth the trip and they definitely live up to the hype. Can be very busy during dinner, so be ready to wait. A few of my favorite items on the menu are the Grilled Fish Tacos, Fried Chicken & Waffles, and the locally pasture raised burger. If you're into craft beer,... More

Food and service was good. But i didn't feel that it was any different than the next restaurant. There is nothing unique about this place. Covered outside eating is available. Simple menu.

Grilled fish tacos were very good; good selection of tap beer. Server was pleasant and proficient, especially for a party of 6. Bar area was not busy, but it was appealing environment for days when outdoor dining isn't optimal.

Love their food and the beer selection is good as well, definitely a fun place to hang with friends/family/date. Building space has a lot of charm.

They have the best Reuben sandwich. Great casual restaurant for lunch or dinner. Sitting outside on a nice day is very pleasant. Full of young students from Duke.

Went to dinner with friends and family here. Had heard great reviews. Ordered a chicken gyro and it tasted decent but the chicken was nothing but chicken fat...never had chicken fat before but this was gross...should have said something to my server but didn't want to make a scene. Emailed manager later that week. Heard nothing from them. Tried a... More

I went to the Geer St. Garden while on a business trip to Durham. Wow! What a cool place! I sat outside and enjoyed one of the many excellent libations and I ordered the "Pile." What a completely original and delightful dish! It's a pile of fried chicken, fries, jalapeños, bacon, cheese, and gravy. I LOVED IT! The rest or... More

I had lunch at the Garden and it was my first visit. I am from Florida but a local resident recommended Geer St. I had the turkey sandwich and my friend had the fish tacos. Food was very good and well prepared but I felt $17 for fish tacos for lunch was a bit pricey. Atmosphere is nice. Building is... More
