Great local restaurant

We really like this restaurant as it's in the heart of Abita Springs, and serves Abita beer. The food is good. Sometimes the service is spotty, but the food is always good.

First, there seems to be some confusion in the reviews between the Abita Brewpub in Abita Springs, which sells food as well as Abita beers and this place, the actual brewery on Highway 36 between Abita Springs and Covington. There's no food here, but plenty of free beer! We've taken these types of brewery tours across America and they're usually... More

Our southern California friends who were visiting were very pleasantly surprised that this little brewery made such wonderful beer! What pleased them most was the brewery's suggestion to blend different beers for a completely new flavor! We had a great time sampling the many different beers at Abita Brewing Co.

This place had excellent food. We had the stuffed quail and highly recommend the pecan crusted catfish and the yummy bread pudding not to mention the great beer.

Shop is nice, but can be crowded. Tour is somewhat short., but informative. Video on brewery history is good. Tasting is very cool, lots of options - and FREE.

This is an awesome way to kill some time in Covington / Northshore area. There is a closed toe shoe policy, so if you wear flip flops, you gotta put these little plastic bag booties on...kind of weird. Just go ahead and wear closed toe shoes. There are games in the taproom to pass the time, great patio for when... More

Part of the charm of this local pub, is the small town in which it resides - Abita Springs, LA. Originally this was a healing spa town for wealthy New Orleanians to escape yellow fever & other summer diseases. The pub serves a wide variety of beers brewed in Abita, and as with most Louisiana restaurants, the food is great.... More

My son and I were looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. The Abita fit the bill perfectly! We went thinking we could sample some beer and we had an excellent time (you don't even have to take the tour.

So we weren't just thrilled over this beer, but for a light, refreshing brew it wasn't bad. Citrus notes, finishes clean. But then, we're spoiled living in Colorado where you can get any type of microbrew imaginable haha

Went here to taste the Abita beer, had a few and all were average for a micro brewery, other problem was beer had very little carbonation and almost tasted flat, food was good but pricey, the bartender seem to simply ignore me for the first 3-4 minutes I was at the bar in front of her and really was not...
