I serve around 30 good beers from all over the world, at my place (CAFFE PRADA). \n\nHowever, nothing beats fresh beer made right here at home in WInston-Salem.\n\nBeer like Bread, Better when Fresh! \n\nSalem Gold is my Favorite\n\nAlex Prada

Classic american burgers, salads, soups and chicken sandwiches. Everything is made fresh on-site (I would ask for real ketchup b/c theirs doesn't have any salt!)! The beers are unique and flavorful. Reasonably priced with good service. Great atmosphere in downtown W-S.

this microbrewery makes some good beer. if a band is playing don't expect to have a conversation. the food can be alright, ask for regular ketchup if you don't like what they give you. the beer is great, i love their IPA.

Foothills has some great food. They do different flavors of creme brulee weekly. Last week I had coconut (it was so yummy, I'd throw a left hook at the Pope to get another dish of it), and this week it's bourbon vanilla (tasty enough to at least elbow a nun in the forehead). The brulee is always done perfectly with the sugar crunchy but not burnt. I'm also quite fond of their ""spin the wheel"" pizzas..you pick what cheese you want, and have them top it with whatever strikes your fancy. I'm addicted to the roasted garlic and basalmic onion (with mozzarella, of course). Their suggested pizzas are great, too, like the white pizza. The she-crab soup is very palatable, and their sour cherry/arugula/pear/candied pecan/bleu cheese salad slides very easily down the 'ol esophagus. I'm not usually a bleu cheese girl, but it compliments the other ingredients well. They make their own ketchup and pickles, too. You can't go wrong with an appetizer (although I wasn't too impressed with the bacon wrapped shrimp). Sometimes due to the acoustics it can get a bit noisy, and one or two of the waiters are slow and don't pay attention, but all in all I'm a fan. I'm not a drinker, but the beer, I've heard, is very good. You can get a ""growler"" to go any time. I like the downtown location and the staff is friendly. Limited menu at night, but a great place to grab a beer and a bite after hours. For sports fans, there are a couple of nice flat screen tvs at the bar.

Pros: food, beer, operating hours

Cons: can get noisy due to acoustics

For any town to put forth any claim to having an upbeat and vibrant nightlife, it is almost a perquisite these days that the town has a microbrewery. The Foothills Brewing is Winston's first and so far only microbrewery that is able to deliver a wide range of beer flavors and with a change in state liquor laws a wide range of potency as well.

But for any establishment to survive downtown, offering a selection of brews on tap will not sufficient. An attached restaurant is usually a must as well. Thankfully, the Foothills Brewing provides a much better selection that the standard burgers and finger foods found at many of these types of establishments.

It was a quiet Sunday evening when we arrived for dinner. The menu is similar to most casual dining restaurants downtown with a menu heavy on burgers and steaks but the execution is much better. The onion rings are considered to be the best in the city but we forgo that in favor for the cheese dip as we needed some vegetables for the evening meal. The cheese was a good blend of cheddar and provolone cheese but the accompanying crudits were raw and could have been blanched to remove some of that raw taste.

We ordered the fish and chips and a steak sandwich. As usual, portion sizes were overwhelming. For the fish two massive fillets were served. The batter was crisp without being greasy and the fish was done nicely if bland. The accompanying fries were superb, the way fries should be prepared with a flavor unlike any other. It came with ketchup made on premises like all of their condiments. It was sweet and definitely full of flavor. The steak sandwich was lined with tender cuts of meat and nicely done onions and peppers topped with generous portions of cheese. It's worth coming back for that. For all of the food we were served, the baby could have done without her meal entirely.

Service was topnotch and for first time visitors, this restaurant made a strong first impression.

PROS: Superb fries, great service, good music
CONS: Oversize portions, appetizer underwhelming
