Food Was Amazing. Tried The American Burger With The Bacon & Cheese Fries. It Was Great. Quick Service & Friendly Host. Thanks 😊

The food there was quite an surprise. Most breweries have BYOF with food trucks parked outside. But Clouds Brewing has some of the best food. Plus they have bracelet style self serving beer. A very nice experience in all.

Really good beer and a great food menu. Bar bites are $3 from 4-6pm weekdays. Awesome deal.

Twice now I've been to this brewery. The beer is cold and tasty but the service is nothing short of a dumpster fire. The tap wall is a nice touch but the fact that the beer tender stares at you like you have 4 heads is quite annoying. The first time I shrugged off the service as the server had a bad day. The second time around, different person and same attitude. Calamari was pretty good though 🤷‍♂️

This is a recently discovered favorite for me, I've been here 3 times now. The staff has always been friendly and attentive. Also, I feel like it's difficult to make a standout chicken caesar salad wrap, but their wrap is amazing! It comes out warm, and the chicken has a great flavor. The dressing is also unique and not overly creamy.

Our go to place for groups or just a casual hangout with upscale bar food and drinks. I am not a beer person but they have a great selection of beer along with the option to self pour and pay by the ounce. Great daily specials as well!

Cool place. Good appetizers and good beer selection. Burgers seemed like they were frozen before but they had some interesting concepts for burgers.

Fun spot to have a beer (or two) and watch the game. Had the HOP J.A.M. and Hawaiian Burger and both were on point. The guy behind the bar was nice and joked about how bad the Cubs were going to be this year and as a Cardinals fan we bonded over that. Funny guy! All in all it was great experience and I will definitely be back soon.

This place is GREAT. Food is amazing and the drink menu is limitless. What really put this place over the top is the staff. Bartenders are personable and have a great knowledge of the beer selection. The manager greeted us right away and continued to check in throughout our visit. Everyone here is down to earth and treats everyone as family. Wish I lived close enough to be a regular!

Waiter was great, I got the wings with dry rub. They didn't have much dry rub on them and they were pretty tough. The beer wall where you pay per ounces you drink is a neat idea though and it had a good atmosphere. Maybe a wings just aren't their thing, others I was with seemed to enjoy their food.

Always a fun place to go. I've some of the best beer in my life here. They need to make the German chocolate stout a regular menu item!

This place is wonderful for a small hangout or for a large party. I’ve had numerous get-togethers here with friends, including two larger food platter type events. The food is great, the service is phenomenal! Management is always super helpful when you’re organizing a larger group. They provide a ton of space and they are attentive to all the guests. The beer is great and they have plenty of cocktails too. If you are hosting an event or just want to go for drinks and food, you really can’t go wrong with going here!!

The staff here was excellent and took great care of us for our event. We loved the food and there was a great variety of drinks available too.

My husband and I love Clouds! We enjoy the food and service so much that my husband's family hosted the rehearsal dinner for our wedding here. Our guests all complimented the food, drinks, and friendly service, and the downpour wall was a big hit. Brandon is a pleasure to meet and work with. We look forward to coming back soon!

Rented out the room for a private event. Staff was really nice. Manager was freaking out a bit because she thought we were stealing drinks (which was 100% false). When renting a room they provided wrist bands for drinks for the self pouring station. The bands kept hitting the “cap” and having to go to the bar to “unlock” them when we had 1 or 2 beers. Kinda annoying but overall good experience.

Service was good but a little slow. I wish they had a vegan option on the entree menu or at least a vegan burger option. That said, the place is nice and looks like they can do very large groups well. Everyone enjoyed their beers.

Fantastic beer. Great location. I only had beer, so I can't rate the food. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because there's too many TVs. Like most restaurants these days, there's too much visual stimulation.

A bit out of the way, but good selection and never that busy. It's a nice place to have a beer if you don't like going to places where you can't hear the people you're with. Here, you'll be able to chat over a nice drink in peace.

Nice biergarten atmosphere. Nice selection on draft, even more bottles/cans. Tasty food too.

We recently had my son's engagement party at the CLOUDS BREWING in Durham. We had a very nice experience. We worked with Brandon and his team. Our entire process was delightful. All communication was prompt and informative and all questions were answered quickly (prior to the event). The room was ready and clean prior to our arrival. All staff was helpful and very cooperative. All requests were handled immediately. The food was simply delicious and the display was outstanding. Everyone commented on how beautiful everything was and how tasty each dish was. The portions were very generous! All guests really enjoyed the "downpour experience".The outside courtyard made a gorgeous backdrop for our pictures. I would highly recommend this venue! Thanks to Brandon and his staff for doing such an amazing job helping us celebrate our special couple.

Stopped here for a quick bite and a beer. The Nacho plate was huge and delicious. The stuffed mushrooms were so good! We let our server choose our beer, and we were not disappointed. And if you like a Jalapeno Margherita- there's was really good. The place is huge, so definitely a crowd pleaser. We will be back

Drove by this place over 20 times a week for a couple of years and had no idea it was even here. I guess it’s one of Durham’s best kept secrets because my wife and I went here last night and was treated to some great brews and amazing food. If you can successfully sneak past the Brightleaf parking Nazis it’s well worth the trip. Will be back.
