Casual and perfect for the college crowd, Low Tide Pub is where locals go to grab a beer, a bite to eat, and a little after-hours entertainment. This pub and bar is located on the edge of the UNCW campus, which makes it a popular hang-out for college grads and area residents alike. Entertainment is held 2-3 nights per week, with regular karaoke and trivia nights, and there are daily drink specials and food specials to draw in the Happy Hour patrons.

Folks who are just popping in for a quick bite to eat, and not necessarily a big night out, will be pleasantly surprised with the fairly extensive menu. Low Tide Pub has a big range of appetizers, including their well-revered wings, a selection of salads, “pub grub” - like big sub sandwiches and quesadillas, as well as an entire menu category that’s dedicated just to shrimp. Hungry patrons will also want to stick around for dessert, which includes a world class cheesecake. A nice spot for an afternoon snack and a brew, or a fun late-night destination for pizza and good times with friends, Low Tide Pub will wow both Wilmington’s younger bar patrons, as well as the young (and hungry) at heart.
