Been closed all year due to building issues. But the owner is a great guy and hopes to be open soon. Food needs improving from past years but the beer is very fresh and tasty!

This place is just what it says it is....a brewpub. The beer is good, the food is adequate and the view from the nation is spectacular.

Wonderful quaint Brewpub overlooking beautiful Raleigh. Just a drinking spell, but we tried a few and they were well balanced and great to enjoy.

Drove past Boylan Bridge Brewpub on Friday and saw that it was taped of with yellow tape condemning the building. Apparently a wall collapsed and has set the sun on this anomaly. Such a waste of a great location in the time it was there.

Category: Local (very) brew pub Main Cuisine: Very good American pub food with some nice touches Reservations: Nope – live music on weekends so come early. Curb Appeal: Blends with the neighborhood which is mostly residential and is right at the Boylan Bridge. This is a genuine local place. The view is semi-industrial and if you like trains it is...

Great just to get out and be able to join the nice weather, food and drink and the view of downtown Raleigh all at the same time!

Sadly one of the pubs in Raleigh with the best outdoor seating and views has the absolute worst food and service. Consistently. I have been here 3 times you would think that I would know better but NO. Sucker. Beer if and when you can get it is not bad. The view over downtown Raleigh is I think unparalleled in... More

We went to the Boylan Bridge pub last night. It was a pretty night and we wanted to eat outside. We were seated quickly but then everything else took FOREVER! We had to ask several times just to get a straw. The nachos were nothing special and sparse. My burger was good, but I really think it took close to... More

Great for drinking outside with charming views of Raleigh, duing warm weather heat wave in December. The beer was delicious, especially the pail ale. The brewers were attentive and were quick to give us tips. The food was average pub food, but we enjoyed it. The waitress was ehh, having a bad day perhaps.

Boylan Bridge Brewpub has the best view in Raleigh for a bar. Great place to start the evening and watch the sunset. The food is mediocre but I have ate lunch here a few times since the view is so great.
