I was actually surprised this place was listed here. I wouldnít call this a beer place; rather, itís a seafood place with a few decent beers. Food is great, and the oysters are amazing. The beer list is better than I would expect for a place like this, but still not anything too special. I do like that they have quite a few local options, as I prefer to drink locally when enjoying a beer or two with dinner. Come for the food, stay for a beer.

This place has some really good oysters. I know, a shock. But they are actually good and they have a good variety from different places. The beers on tap are almost always all NC taps which is cool if youíre visiting but usually not that exciting to me. Some occasional seasonals and a pretty good bottle list. In short, come here for the seafood.

I was surprised at the beer selection here. I was able to get a Founders Breakfast stout with ma seafood! Daily printed menu and fresh sea fare, boss. Staff isnít going to be too knowledgeable necessarily but the waitress was happy to get me a snifter.

A fantastic but relatively pricey seafood restaurant. There isnít anything that special about the beer menu but all food on the menu is top rate. Very good waitstaff. I recommend 42nd Street to anyone who hasnít been there before.

Good place to eat, but VERY expensive. They serve beer in frosted glasses, and donít really know much about what they serve. The food is good at least, but you can get better seafood for a lot less.

If Germany has beer halls, New England has fish halls (but as restaurants, yeah, thatís it). And one is in Raleigh. Great dining hall atmosphere. Surprisigly large and impressive tap and bottle selection.

Not only is this place the best restaurant in Raleigh, they have an excellent beer selection. Usually about 12-15 choices on tap and tons of bottled selections. If you like oysters, you are in the right place!

Killer seafood. Lobster bisque is to die for. Decent beer selection in the bottle, average on tap. Pint glasses are heavy and thick quality glasses and I have a couple at home that I treasure. Live music on the weekend near the bar and a large restaurant. This is a restaurant with a bar. Not the other way around. Nonetheless this is one of my favorite places in Raleigh. Again, and I cannot state this loudly enough.....Killer seafood.

This place had been in Raleigh since the thirties. Surprisingly good selction of bottled and draft beer, especially for North Carolina. I practically fell out of my chair when I saw that they had Duck Rabbit Russian Imperial Stout on draught, as itís been unavailable anywhere in bottles for over two months. I had to confirm with the waitress that it was indeed the Impy before she brought to the table - it was. Service was cheerful and courteous. This palce has a wonderful atmosphere, and good seafood menu.
