First rate beer with food to match. May be one of the best craft breweries in Maryland. Evo has a wide selection of menu items and even includes suggestions for beer pairings. When we arrived ithe restaurant appeared to be completely full but we had a reservation and were escorted immediately to our table. Service was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend you give it a try.

Our server was outstanding and adorable. Food for me is just so-so. I am vegetarian and the choices for me are very limited. That being said, my husband had a good meal and has numerous choices. He liked the citrus flavored beer he got.
Nice patio for outdoor seating if you are so inclined.

We take a yearly trip to Salisbury and Evolution has been our must go place to eat.
Even though it’s off season, the oysters were good. We all ordered burgers done medium, they were all over cooked, dry and chewy. The fried egg on the burger was fried hard even though it was requested to be over easy. The server apologized but seemed extremely exhausted and disingenuous.

Second time making the trip from the Wesrens Shore in Maryland for the Sunday brunch. Once again, everyone loves what they had. Then, of course, a trip over to the tasting room. Great stuff!

Prices were ridiculous on the specials. I ordered a spicy avocado burger and requested vegetables instead of French fries. That was a $2.50 upcharge but the burger was $18.00. For a hamburger that is obscene. Not the value for the $&$

It was pouring out and so the location was kind of hard to find, being from NY traveling back home from NC, we made a reservation for 9pm & the restaurant called us to say the kitchen closes at 9. So glad they called. They were super great to accommodate us ( we just made it in at 8:45) and we all loved our dinners! (Pulled pork, Catch of the Day, Burger)

Booth reserved weeks in advance was not big enough for six adults. Poor lighting did not allow easy review of small writing on beer menu. Servers are nice and attentive but waiting an hour for food was excessive.Temperature in dining area was 80 degrees. A 220 dollars for 6 meals and 6 drinks seems high.

EVO went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and appreciated as patrons. It was an extremely busy day ( SU grad- of which our daughter was one) and they were still spot on. We had a bit of a wait in the beginning and the manager was on top of it, we couldn’t be happier with the way our experience there went. Our guests were raving about the food for the next few days. Thank you so much EVO!!

My husband and I absolutely love dining at EVO. The staff is very welcoming, the servers most accommodating and the food excellent. I absolutely love their deviled eggs and pretzel appetizers...plus they have wonderful salads, chopped with blackened shrimp is my favorite, and their dry scallops are to die for. Can you tell I’m a fan! Reservations are recommended!

The only reason I didn't give the food a better than good rating was because the shrimp on the risotto was over cooked. The risotto itself was excellent, as was the NY Strip and the Asian Sea Bass. The Malbec was also very good as well as the beers. Going back.

The service and ambience were very good. The only drawback to the entire meal was that three out of four people ordered burgers and each of them were way overcooked per the initial request. If it had not been for the need to depart for amother location we would’ve had the food returned. But we do note the appetizers and the service was outstanding and definitely recommend this business. It was however a little sad to see that the hamburgers that were ordered were very over cooked.

Birthday/Post Race celebration was made more fun by having it here. Server Neal was busy but still attentive and got things right! We were not rushed and everyone in our group of 9 enjoyed food and beverages. Burgers are always great and the lunch menu has enough variety to please everyone. Nice variety of beers.

We love EVO’s beer and always bring a growler! Every year a group of us run the Tim Kennard 10 miler race in Salisbury and grab a well deserved beer and lunch at EVO afterward.
