Kind of hidden in the Quails Corners shopping center. Has a brick face thast makes it stand out from the rest of the shopping center. Bar is on the right dining room straight ahead as you walk in. Bar was very smokey. Bar is a large c shape, about 20 25 people. 5 tables and 6 booths in the bar area too. Dining room has about 20 25 booths and I think itís non smoking. Bar has lots of pictures of movie stars, rock stars, NC related sports memorabilia. Women behind the bar chatted with just enough to be polite with being overbearing, checked in with me to see if things were good. Good selection, though they had issues with the taps closest to the bar, stuff was foaming up alot, took multiple attempts to get a pint. They seem to favor lower gravity items. Nice selection of NC brews. Foothills, Carolina Brewery, Carolina Brewing co. Carolina Beer co, Highland, Big Boss, Red Oak all had multiple tap handles. Donít remember seeing Duck Rabbit. Food is the same as the rest of the chain. Pretty good prices.
