Spent the day in Half Moon Bay biking and decided to stop for a bite and a beer before heading out. Went to Half Moon Bay Brewing Company and we were seated promptly on their patio overlooking the bay. We ordered the seafood platter and fish and chips. The seafood platter came with fried calamari, prawns and fish. Both were... More

Had dinner there one evening and enjoyed it very much. Tried a couple of their brews and it stands up with the best of the craft breweries. Food was good too. Great outside patio, maybe the best in Half Moon Bay.

The food here is good! The only thing is that i had to drink a beer out of a plastic glass! If you are planning to go here in the weekend make sure you have a reservation or you'll have to wait for about half an hour!

New owners since last time we visited; therefore, thought we'd give it another try. The menu, overall, seemed better; however, food disappointed. had to send a salad back because it was drenched in balsamic dressing. Perhaps the chef looked away while pouring it on? The flank steak at $21 came with french fries only vs veggies & mashed potatoes or... More

We go for the beer, the food and the music. As usual, not disappointed. We were there for several hours, enjoying the band. We have also enjoyed other times there, often enjoying Giants games on tv while there.

While visiting this beautiful area, we stopped at this great place. Fish and chips were outstanding (and we are picky about our fish and chips). They had a good beer selection too. Very nice seating area outside with several fire pits to keep warm.

The best way to enjoy Half Moon Bay Brewing Company is to sit outside by the warm fire in the lively patio area. Its very nice to sit back and enjoy seeing people come and go. There is also nice sitting inside the restaurant. Food is ok; beer however is awesome. Service is average. Parking is at the lot at... More

Stopped by on our way out of town. Had tried to get in without reservation on Saturday night, but there was a very long wait. If you like hoppy beer, you will like their local brews. Me, not so much, but did think their food was good. Had the calamari which was good, but the best was their ceviche. Didn't... More
