Reviews for The Northern Spy

This place is wonderful! The owner is super knowledgeable and personable. She really cares about her customers having a good experience. This place will definitely become a staple in my after work drink locations!

Northern spy has a limited food menu and an extensive canned and bottled beer selection. With a beer forward town like Durham, they have created a new niche in the way of beer selected from a cooler which takes away the pressure of ordering quickly to a bar tender. Burger was pretty good with fresh lettuce and a tasty aioli!

Went for an afternoon cider with a friend and had a great chat with the manager, Ivana, who was kind enough to let us try a sip before choosing a draft cider. There is a small menu; the French fries were fabulous--nice and crispy (and the cider aioli was delicious, too!). The tomato arugula "pie" was great--sort of a puff pastry crust with caramelized onions, fresh tomatoes, and lots of cheese. The draft options are from Stem Ciders of Denver and were excellent. full review
