Very nice spot! Would be good for a large crowd...the food was meh and the drinks were ok. They add gratuity to your checks! That's why the tip % range is low when paying. It was just 2 of us and gratuity was added without our knowledge until after we paid. The fried pickles were good; the Buffalo chicken dip needed chicken...the mushrooms were ok, but the stuffing is a bit rich.

After a long time found a brewery which is kids friendly, specious and food was yummy. Definitely we will be visiting soon. A great place to hangout with friends with little kids or just group of friends.

Fun place to go with a group. The food was ok and the service could have been better. But we went on trivia night and had a great time.

Stopped here for dinner on Sunday, late afternoon. The staff was friendly and helpful. Service was fast, accurate and professional. Our waitress was very good. The food and drinks we got were very good, especially the peanut butter pie. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Awesome place for craft beer and food. Really, check this place out. I ordered Chicken Nachos, it wasn’t how I expected, but much better. They used half tostadas vs the tortilla chips, so clever! Staff is friendly, and tons of space. Must do when in Durham. If I’m back in Durham, will definitely be back.

We had lunch on Sunday around 1pm. Our server was Logan who was friendly, patient and answered all of our questions. We ordered short rib nachos. They come with beer cheese, avocado, pico, black beans, jalopenos & sour cream. We requested the items come to the side and they did so. The nachos were delicious. I do wish we had more chips but overall we had enough to share. We order chicken and waffles. The chicken wa well seasoned & crispy. The waffle was fluffy also served with syrup & honey. We ordered a short rib sandwich served with rib consome, caramelized onions, provolone cheese. This was a 10 out of 10. The meat was tender & juicy. We got sweet potatoe fries with them. Also ordered chicken pesto sandwich. The sandwich ingredients were very fresh. It was pretty good but I next time I may add some avocado or extra pesto to kick it up notch. Got a side house salad which was pretty standard no frills salad but good. Lastly a kid's cheeseburger meal with waffles fries. No complaints with that. Overall very relaxed good atmosphere. Something for everyone and we will want to try alot of thr menu items. Parking on the side was very convenient. I was surprised because we were expecting to park and walk but thankful we did not have to.

Been here several times. Always a lot of fun. Great outdoor seating and plenty of room inside. Last time I was here we had a party of 20 people. The service was great! The food was very good as well. I had the dirty heaven sandwich and it was great! Everyone in our party enjoyed the food and beer. Also tried the buffalo dip which was good but the portion was a little on the smaller side. They have their own beers, which are good, but also carry other brands.

Get the giant pretzel! Clouds Brewing is spacious and inviting with plenty of room at the bar, throughout the indoor seating space, and some nice spots outside on the square. Staff was kind and helpful. Was only able to grab a single beer but the Midnight Delight was dark and delicious!

Delicious food from a German based menu. Excellent beer on-tap and in cans. In a beautiful historic building with ample indoor and outdoor seating.
