This is a pearl in Pittsboro - Many nights you will hear a band play, outside when weather permits or indoor if needed. The drinks are great and they even have board games to play during the afternoons. Its just a great place to "chill"...More

Stopped by for the Ploughman's lunch (comes with a pint of beer--your choice). I've been here several times and have really enjoyed the atmosphere and the live music.

I go there several times a week! The food is good. The bartenders are awesome...especially Billy and Merrick! The drinks are generous and the music is fabulous!

I have to say that I really liked The City Tap, a comfortable, eclectic, vintage-y inspired brewpub right in the center of beautiful, little ole, downtown Pittsboro, NC. Being a hot summer day, we chose to sit at one of the tables inside, instead of...More

Not much was open on a Sunday so we tried this place. Sandwiches were good, plentiful and fresh. I appreciated the custom sandwich they made for me. Salsa and chips were good too.

This was my second visit to this local Pittsboro pub and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed again. The best Bloody Mary I've had in a long time and the fun was good too. Seems popular for lunch with the folks of Pittsboro.

Great local bar with largely a local crowd. Fresh made sandwiches with local ingredients when available. One tv that sits mostly dormant as encouragement to get to know your fellow patrons. Only point of contention is the staff. If you're a local, and a regular,...More

We looked for a restaurant in Pittsboro recently after a long like at a nearby nature preserve. We really wanted a beer and sandwich but could not get anyone to wait on us. The young blond waitress did everything she could to discourage customers. She...More

Friendly atmosphere with nice outdoor area. Service is pretty slow so don't go if you are in a hurry. Food is not bad but not outstanding. Would recommend their hot dogs fully loaded. Wish they had more to offer than the terrible bean salad that...More
