On a recent trip to the Greensboro area, I finally got to get to Natty Greenes. This is a beautifully kept old building. The place was busy, but there was enough room to move between tables and get to the bar. We sat upstairs at the Bar. Right next to the bar was the working dumb waiter that the staff used to move food up and dishes down. It really added to the old feeling of the establishment. We did not eat while at Nattys, but the food looked good. The portions seemed to be over sized. The staff was incredibly helpful. My companion and I had cigars, but had forgotten the cutter. The bar keepers informed us that they had just lost their usual cigar cutter. The then asked the other bar patrons, with cigars, if they had a cutter. After that didnt produce a cutter, the brought us a large kitchen cutting board, and an extremely sharp knife. No for the beer. The selection had all their usual beers, but they had about 6 seasonal beers on tap too. They were very willing to give samples of the seaso
Over all an OK place to visit. The building is interesting enough but definitely has a college bar vibe to it. The service was so-so. It took a while to get our beer. Not good for a brewery. The food was average at best, and a little pricey for what it was. The restrooms were not very clean and smelled bad. Not some place I would seek out again.
Looks like it has been around for a hundred years due to painting techniques. It does feel like a touristy place, but at the same time it clearly caters to the locals. Seems like it would be a fun hang out.
Located in downtown Greensboro with inexpensive parking available in a lot across the street. The brewpub is in old, two-story brick building which adds a lot of ambience. They have a restaurant area with a bar on the ground floor as well as another bar upstairs. As you can imagine with all that brick and all that space it can get loud especially with the Saturday night crowd skewing so young give this place a bit of a colleg bar vibe. They had 10-11 things on tap that were solid as was the food. Its a solid enough place but I can’t say it warmed the cockles of my heart.
This place is in a large architecturally interesting building, with bars on both the ground floor and second floor (first floor if you’re from Europe). But it seemed more like a restaurant with a brewpub stuck on. Service was very attentive. Beers were varied but so-so.
Great combo of a brew pub and a sports bar at the upper floor. Kerping the good brew pub athmosphere yet having few, not too many screens. Great beers, 1,5 dollar samplers, food is fantastic and the staff just made our day. Highly recommended.
