Second time here and first time for brunch and my husband and I can’t stop talking about how amazing the food was!! Soooo sooo yummy! We each got the steak and cheese omelette which comes with hash browns and grits; the best grits!! We shared the plate of French toast and wow!! This food was seriously so yummy..will be back very soon!! Also love the vibes here and service was great!

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.

Great beer, food and service. What more can I say. Paula Ann was wonderful and was very gracious. When we told her we were cold, she helped us move to a more comfortable table. We had a great evening.

Stopped for any evening social hour and got to sit outside! Service was a little slow to get started (hostess wasn’t very informative), but our server was great and the live band playing in the courtyard was fantastic. Great chill experience for people visiting Durham!

Hadn't been in some time, but brunch was so good, we'll definitely be putting Clouds back into a regular rotation! The grits are absolutely the best (pro tip: ask for some of their housemade hot sauce to add on top!). The poblano chicken grits were new to the menu since I last visited, and they were so colorful and flavorful. After we each had an entree, we shared (demolished) the bananas foster French toast - delicious! Love that you can order a carafe of mimosas. Great outdoor dining space. All around wonderful brunch experience.

The service & food was very good. I ordered the shrimp and grits. It was absolutely delicious. The cauliflower bites & short rib nachos as appetizers were also delicious. I will definitely be visiting again. Kudos 👏🏽

VERY large cubic room filled with comical amount of tables. Food is solid and the peanut butter pie is to die for. The tricks on Thursday nights is one of the better in the area. The questions are more geared toward facts and geography than millennial culture as so many are. However, the questions are often hard to hear. Beer good.
