Lunch (bratwurst) was really good. And the Mac n cheese was a great surprise.The beer was all very good, especially Warmest Color. Just a beautiful beer.Staff was great and the atmosphere was laid back.

Awesome craft beer. I am quite partial to the Working Man’s Lunch and the Carver; but they’re all great. Very kid friendly during the kiddo hours. My kids love the pinball machines. Cheers to plow to pint! Oh, great food available too.

Beer is fine; they definitely release some failed experiments, but their main-streams are good. The staff tends to ruin the experience, however. One of the bartenders, a tall guy who tends to wear a kilt, communicates entirely through grunting. He seems truly inconvenienced by having to serve beer. There is better beer nearby served by significantly nicer people. Walk around the corner to Durty Bull for a better time overall.

We stopped here on the way to Hatteras. It was a great find! The food was good, beer was excellent, bartender was awesome. We highly recommend!

I've had Fullsteam beer before, but this was my first time to this taproom. Great atmosphere, great location. But most importantly - Phenomenal Beer!!!

Full steam is a fantastic brewery. They have a wide selection of beer types and offer flight size pours so you can get as many or as few as you want (flight pictured). The southern basil just launched again and is one of my favorite beers. They have good classics as well as unique flavors. They have a pretty wide ranging food menu as well. Lots of beer hall seating (though it’s pretty hot in the summer, they have a big fan to keep it from being unbearable.

DO THIS THING!!! I love being able to go 10 minutes away and have a great beer and FANTASTIC food! Listen. The locals are ULTRA FRIENDLY at this place and here's the kicker...I don't drink beer but my husband always enjoys a cold craft beer from this brewery. The bar staff is very friendly and in fact my son's dope and down to earth high school teacher works there!!! It was great conversation, I definitely over ate..... go with the charcuterie board if you like variety but my personal favorite was the ribs and mac & cheese.

New to Durham, been to Fullsteam 3 times and have loved it. My thoughts:What was great: •All 6 beers I have tried have been very good, no off flavors•Wide selection of beer types (not just IPAs or sours like some trendy breweries now). Something for everyone•Staff very nice•Atmosphere is urban modern, trendy and relaxed•Food smelled amazing (although have yet to try)What you might avoid:•They have tap water containers out, but the water tastes like metal and garden hose (think of when you drank out of a garden hose as a kid). Normal durham water does not taste like this. Not a deal breaker, just drink their beer instead. :) Overall, I offer my highest recommendation.
