Whiskey Trail Pub & Grill is a hidden gem that’s tucked away near the Masonboro Sound, and which serves as a popular hang-out for Wilmington residents in the Masonboro Loop and Monkey Junction area. Serving up good food and a fun bar scene, complete with big TVs that regularly broadcast the games, Whiskey Trail is a solid destination for food, fun, and even a little Happy Hour or after-hours entertainment.

The menu is simple, but wonderfully varied, with all the fare that you’d expect at a good neighborhood bar and grill. Many patrons start and end their meal in the extensive appetizer section, which boasts all the football favorites including chicken wings and legs, homemade chips, tater tots, loaded pub fries, and even fried pierogis. And while it’s pretty easy to make a meal out of the appetizers alone, hungrier patrons or lunchtime guests will want to peruse the extensive list of sandwiches, sliders, burgers, salads and even quesadillas. There’s also a great drink list, including daily drink specials, as well as entertainment including trivia nights and occasional live music. Always entertaining, and always filling for a Happy Hour snack or even a big lunch with friends, Whiskey Trail Pub & Grill is gaining popularity well outside the local neighborhood.
