I love Natty Greene's. It kind of has a saloon-like feel to it inside - lots of old wood and brick, plenty of tables for eating, and two bars (upstairs and down). Plenty of outdoor seating too for when the warm weather rolls around again. I prefer going upstairs to eat and drink as it somehow has a more relaxed atmosphere. Going up the stairs there is a clear view into the brewing area where somebody was brewing on a Saturday night. The second floor features pool, darts, old school video games, foozball, and table shuffleboard as well as a little jukebox on the wall that they load up with free credits so you can pick the music. The beer here is well made and there is generally a selection of about 10-12 on tap at any given time. Lots of seasonals (in the winter at least) and a good balance of malty and hoppy beverages. The service is good though it understandably slows down when it gets busy (which it often does). The food is excellent too, especially for the price. Very reasonable all around. A must-stop if in the Greensboro area.

A nice older building located in downtown area. Street parking is limited around the place, so expect to walk a bit to get here. Plenty of woods and brick, there is a older warehouse feel to the place, especially with all the ceiling fans in the dining area. There is a second floor for dining above the bar area. The bar can seat about 12 people and has a view of the outside dining area. The brewing area is also visible from the bar.
During my visit there were twelve beer on tap, some listed in on the menu, others on the chalkboard. Several style were on inlcuding an IPA, White IPA, Hefe, Strong Ale, Autumn Lager, ESB, Amber, Pale, and a Stout. We had several beers during the visit, and they were all fresh and of a good quality. Nothing to blow the barn doors off, but all were solid and easy to drink.
We did not have any food, but the service was friendly and prompt.
The stop here was enjoyable, and if I ever find myself in the area again I will make an effort to stop in.

Being used to the craziness of the DC area, I REALLY appreciate towns like Greensboro. Wow... what a great change of pace!
Atmosphere: I don't think there is a single building over 2-3 stories in the downtown area surrounding this Brewery/Brewpub, but I totally dig that about it. This place is located near a train crossing in a very cozy area, surrounded by a bunch of Mom and Pop retail stores that are downright fun to loiter in. The inside looks like your standard brewpub, impeccably clean, and with a cozy little bar section towards the back.
Quality and Service: The service was fine and our server was both knowledgable about the food and the beer. The quality of both the beer and the food ranged from serviceable to a bit more than slightly above average.
Selection: All of the standard styles were represented, with a few tasty seasonals as well. I'd say there were at least 10 selections on tap the night we went.
Food: My sandwich was just decent, but my wife's burger was to die for. Overall, I guess I'd say that it was worthwhile in the food department.
Value: Compared to DC (which I'm used to) this place was a steal! I don't remember the exact prices of the beer, but I do remember that they had a nice Happy Hour.
This is definitely the place to go in Greensboro. However, afterwards, stumble down the street to Mellow Mushroom for a nightcap. :)

Parking is a pain in the ass. We drove around the streets for 15 minutes at least before finally coming on an open spot on the street about a half mile away. Walking to the restaurant, I was surprised by how lively and vibrant downtown Greensboro is. There are a ton of bars and night spots, and a ton of people at them.
Natty Greene’s immediately seemed like a hip, lively joint. Located on the corner of a large, red brick building, the interior features a lot of exposed brick, a high-ceilinged, long-ass room, a bar in the back and not nearly enough seating for their popularity. It was past 8:00 at night and the wait was still on the order of an hour.
Luckily, we slid into a spot at the bar. The service was a bit slow and impersonal, but they were pretty busy and we were on the end, so I give them a bit of a pass. The beer on tap came in a wide variety. Five or six standard ales topped the list that they bottle and distribute regularly. The second half featured six to eight special, seasonal pub brews that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else but the pub itself, which I’m always a big fan of. We went through samples of all of the beers not available year-round. While I found most of them to be solid sessions, none were outstanding and some were downright bad. The lagers and wheats were too light and the IPA was way too bitter up front with a terrible finish.
The food menu is pretty expansive. Your typical pub fare is dressed up enough to make it sound interesting, but not so much as to make it sound pretentious. We went with smokin’ turkey sandwich rounded out by raspberry mayo and Poseidon wrap filled with Mediterranean toppings and shrimp. I’m pretty sure the turkey sandwich came out wrong, as there wasn’t any raspberry in it, and the Poseidon was pretty good, but nothing to return for.
Overall, while I certainly wouldn’t complain about having Natty Greene’s in my hometown, I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit again, either.

I was really impressed with this one. Location is in downtown Greensboro and has a nice rustic vibe. Lower floor is a pub (almost has a family restaurant vibe) with the second floor being more of a bar. Although I haven't been blown away by bottled Natty, the brewpub features something like 6 brews that are not bottled, these tend to be better than the bottled offerings. When I went they were sadly out of the Dunkelweizen :(. Menu is of a small to medium size and fairly standard fare, but I found myself very impressed with the food quality. Worth going for the burgers alone. Prices were average though if you watch the beer specials the place can be downright cheap.
Overall: a Brewpub that gets the food right, reasonable prices and features beer that you can only get in the brewpub.

I've been here quite a few times, and have been impressed by their selection of beers, the service given by the staff, and the general atmosphere of the place. Sure, while the staff may not know everything about the beers they are serving, they have always been very fast and courteous. Depending on the day you go in to Natty's, you may be able to catch 2 $ pints, which is a real bargain for some awesome, solid beers on tap.
The layout of the place is interesting. When I take my wife, we usually sit down in the dining area, grab dinner or lunch, or eat/drink out on the patio if it's warm enough. If I'm going with some friends, we'll drink a few brews up on the second floor, in which the service is just as good as the dining area if you're ordering food. As for the third floor, this is the VIP area, and from what I recall from a graduation party, they have only the standard year round brews on tap up there.
Overall, this place is definitely worth your time if you're a local, or if you're just passing through.

A: Nice patio outside, classier dining area downstairs, and a kind of a college area upstairs.
Q: Good stuff on tap, always cold. Good bar fare on the menu, always hot&fresh.
Service: no bad experiences here, really. Funny story; some locals joke about this place cause guys tend to hit on the bartenders just a bit too much. It makes for great entertainment on friday's.
Selection: Their beers are pretty good, I enjoyed it all. I had an internship in winston/salem for 2 months last summer. The entire time i was there, the menu/tap list was not 100% correct.
Food: Standard bar grub, not many surprises. Get the pretzels!
Value: Pretty good. Pay for what ya get... which is usually good.

I usually try to go to Natty's once or twice a month. Food is your standard pub foods, but still good. They usually have 7 or 8 of their beers on tap at all times and a few other beers if your not a fan. It can become packed on weekends and you will be looking for a place to sit if you do not get there early. All in all, it's a good place to go and enjoy yourself. I prefer going to either M'coul's (which is right down the road) but would recommend going to Greene's if you want a good pub brew and a burger.

Went to this place a couple times when I was in college. I never ate there, but just drink. They have several of their house brews on tap and I thought were really delicious. They have a dining area on the first floor, and then a small bar area. The top floor has a lot more space. There's pool tables, darts, etc. There is another bar, and bar tables. I went on a Friday night and it was fairly crowded. The service was good and the beer was better. I'm a sucker for local brewpubs, so that's why I regard it so high.

Stopped by on a recent business trip to Greensboro on the recommendation of a local.
Cool location downtown, very convenient and easy to get to. We sat outside, so I can't really speak to the ambiance indoors, but the outdoor setup is streetside with umbrellas at every table, and perfect for a sunny 80 degree day like we had. I went with a sampler, which allows you to pick 6 4oz pours, so I went with a variety of styles, with 4 regulars and 2 seasonals. The beers were all decent- nothing earth-shattering but solid takes on the respective styles, and I really enjoyed the imperial ipa they had. The food was fresh and delicious. Our waitress had a few beer recommendations and after chatting with her for a few minutes it was clear she had a good handle on the beers they served. She was very pleasant- definitely showed us plenty of Southern hospitality. I would go back again for the overall experience, but not necessarily just to drink beer. Definitely worth a stop, especially if you're looking for a place for a good lunch or casual business meeting.
