Droped in for the 08 release of sexual chocolate. The place has a nice feel. Has a buffalo burger that was great. My wife had fish and chips which was a bit greasy. The beers were excellent of course had the sexual chocolate but also a fest beer and maibock. Good place and good service.

Wow, Winston-Salem is a dead town. Was there for less than 24 hrs and stopped into FH 4 times. First, b/c I like good beer, and second, b/c there were no other places in town other than a Mellow Mushroom. Nonetheless, nice BP w/ slow service, good menu, and fair selection of brews. Overall average.

This was a treat for me to stop here on the way to Brewsgrass.The manger was the one behind the bar serving and was really friendly and knew her beers.Everything that the had to offer was available, no outs.Of course I had asked for the Sexual Chocolate and she chuckled and kindly explained that it will be out In February.The big hit was the Seeing Double IPA.I will definately be back.

Not a bad place with pretty decent beer. The service was a little lacking, but not too bad. Food was good with a good seleciton. If you want a slightly better than average brewpub this is a good place to start.

I thought this was a pretty nice place for dinner, and the fact that they make some fine beer sure didnít hurt. It is a large and long and high-ceilinged place, kinda sparsely decorated, but still warm and inviting. It took a while to get my first beer. The bartender was at the near end of the bar chatting. Meanwhile, two of us sat empty handed for quite some time. Service was much better after that, but you know - first impressions go a long way. Okay so I finally get a beer (Torch Pilsner which I have already reviewed). Then I order dinner and a second beer (India Brown Ale which was okay but really didnít need the íIndiaí tag - it wasnít all that hoppy). Now dinner, on the other hand, was simply fantastic. I had the She Crab Soup first, and a medium rare ribeye steak as the main course. I liked it that the cook checked back in with me to see how I liked it. Thatís a pretty cool practice. I told him it was exceptional. It really was. A nice brewpub and restaurant. If I lived locally, the beer could bring me back every once in a while. But let me tell you, that ribeye would turn me into a regular customer.

This is a restaurant-style brewpub with an extensive bar area. They keep several different beers on draught (grab some Seeing Double). We were there at kind of an odd time, so there wasnít much going on except a few people coming and going to get growlers. They have merchandise, too.

Foothills Brewing features a long bar with a spacious dining area behind it. There is some patio seating which would be quite nice on a pleasant day. The building is easily reached by a walk downtown. I would recommend any brew here whose primary focus is hops. The brewer can execute such styles very well. There were a very large amount of people who were surprisingly older than typical college students that loudly talked about macro swill being superior to Foothills stuff. Iím not sure if this is a common occurance, but it sure adds a certain level of humorous entertainment. I unfortunately did not eat here this time due to my earlier visit to Asiana. Perhaps next visit I will consume a meal.

Fantastic roomy brewpub in downtown WS. The main dining area is big enough to stretch out in, and cool balcony seating is available. In addition to their 6 mainstays, Foothills had 3 seasonals on tap. The beer is above average overall with their Total Eclipse stout taking top honors. Try their pilsener as well. The menu is pub fare with a twist. A few game meats are available on the menu and I suggest trying their game sampler for maximum impact. The boar is awesome if you dig pork. Live music on weekends and a friendly knowledgeable wait staff round out the offerring.

My family and I stopped on Friday night the 29th for dinner. I had the roasted duck & black bean quesedilla to start things off (very good) and the wild boar chops... Outstanding to say the least! Very well prepared and perfectly cooked! The sauce complimented the boar very well, and the apple cheddar gratin was nicely different. I didnít eat much of it due to having the quesedilla. The Hunterís pie that we had ordered was also pretty special. The pizza (pepperoni & mushroom) was very good. Nicely crispy crust on the bottom w/ a soft, but done inside. Not a huge fan of their sauce, but it was good. My wife had the ribs, also very good according to her. By the time I got around to having the other stuff, I was too full to try my sisterís or wifeís meal. The service was excellent, and it was fairly busy when we went in there. The wait for a table was short, and our server was very friendly. They no longer allow smoking ( a plus for me), but, they still serve Miller Lite, but oh well. Definitely worth checking out when in the area!!! The ketchup was also very good so I bought a bottle, but it never made it home w/ me. It appears that there really arenít any preservatives in it, so Iím not sure exactly what happened, but Iím glad they put it in a plastic bag, or my clothes would have been coated in the stuff.

Wife and I stopped by for lunch 5/30/06 while visiting the area. Actually we landed at the Raleigh airport, got our car and drove to Winston-Salem. Wasnít crowded as it was around 1230-100pm. Nice big dining area. Two story high ceiling, brick and wood. Bar area has like twenty seat and table too. You can see brewing equipment from the bar. Seperate function room and a upper mezinine section that over looks dining area. Waitress was friendly, gave me brief history of the place. I had the small nachos and wife had turkey sandwich. Both were good. I had the IIPA, ipa. My wife had the pale ale and Eclipse stout. All seemed solid. Worth a visit if in the metro Winston-Salem area.
