Nestled on the fringe of Winston-Salem’s downtown, The Quiet Pint is a hidden gem. This restaurant boasts an inviting atmosphere with personable employees, as well as a unique and trendy menu.

Unfortunately, this tavern is located in a strange place on West First Street and can get often overlooked by students, but it deserves attention.

The Quiet Pint stays open year-round with its patio seating and live music in the warmer months and indoor accomodations in the cooler months.

If you’re looking for a new spot to watch sports, The Quiet Pint is a perfect place to go, as it has many TVs, delicious appetizers and an extensive beer menu.

As for regular dining, you can enjoy delicious food and quick service.

Perhaps one of the restaurant’s most alluring qualities is its dynamic Daily Specials menu. Each day, they have a new macaroni and cheese, flatbread and salad special to offer.

A customer favorite is their garlic parmesan fries appetizer that comes with a large plate of fries and a trio of dipping sauces: ketchup, malt aioli and their house steak sauce.

The Quiet Pint also offers fresh sides, such as pasta salad, garlic broccoli, potato salad and hand-cut fries — all prepared with a slight twist on the traditional recipes.

Although The Quiet Pint has unique items like their Honey Sriracha Chicken Wrap and Korean BBQ Pork Tacos, they also serve more traditional dishes such as several types of burgers, a Caprese flatbread, sesame grilled salmon and wings.

A perk to the smaller menu is that they truly specialize in everything they serve.

Aside from having amazing food, the friendly staff and easy-going atmosphere are what keep Quiet Pint regulars coming back.

Unlike what you’re likely to experience at chain restaurants, it’s easy to tell that Quiet Pint employees truly love their job.

When you walk into the restaurant’s doors, you will be helped immediately by their staff, and although the tavern is quite a popular spot, there usually isn’t a wait time to be seated.

In fact, the service is so exceptional that you usually haven’t finished your appetizer before your entrée arrives.

However, the quick service doesn’t make you feel like they’re rushing you out of the restaurant; it simply shows how much they care for enhancing your experience.

The cohesive, personable staff paired with the delicious menu is really what makes The Quiet Pint stand out from other restaurants in Winston-Salem, and it’s a perfect place for students to go to relax after a long day of classes.

  At the end of your time at The Quiet Pint Tavern, you’ll feel like your meal was worth plenty more than the $20 you paid for your food.
