Road trip with Cuz

It was a beautiful day at the beach. It was in the 70's. We sat outside on the patio. We had hor's. Fried artichoke hearts, humus, and battered Brats on a pick. The portions were good. Everything was tasted good. The service was good.

We stopped by for some brews and the few we tried were very tasty. Did not try any of the food but everything coming out to other customers smelled good

Nothing quite like a sunny, warm & clear day to soak up the fresh sea air in half moon bay, especially on the patio of half moon bay brewing company. Maverick surfing competition is 2 days away so lots of surfers practicing & spectators on the lookout. We haven't been here for 2 years & it looks like they did... More

Has a terrific outdoor area behind plexiglass so it's often usable when conditions are not ideal. Right at the harbor in a nice area within walking distance of the airport so flying in with private aircraft is a breeze. Good food and brew.

We loved the place. We had good service. We had great food. The outdoor seating is nice. Indoors has several rooms as well. This is a restaurant that doubles as a bar. Free parking. And most important is they brew and serve great beer.

This brewery and restaurant provides solid food offerings, and excellent wine list, and hand crafted beers that are exceptional. There is plenty of seating indoors and outdoors with views of the Pillar Point Harbor and peek-a-boo views of the famous Mavericks surf area. Parking is limited. Prices are moderate. And every Saturday night there is live music.

Nice wide menu selection, friendly attentive service. Crowded on a Sunday, but they seemed to manage everyone pretty well. I heartily recommend the Portuguese Fisherman's Stew. This is basically a bouillabaisse from the Atlantic seaboard instead of Marseille, France. Doesn't matter -- it was superb. Even though every table was full, we still were able to talk with each other... More

I ordered a bowl of the clam chowder. It was really well seasoned and the mussels were chopped in to small enough pieces so that they were not at all hard to eat. My husband ordered a pint of the milk stout and he said it was good. He also ordered the fish and chips. The chips were great and... More

Ate several times mostly in the heated patio with small dog. Lovely selection of beers. Good selection of fish and seafood. As usual service good. Lost my wallet and the next day t/phoned around and they quickly confirmed it had been found and the manager had it for me. All contents intact and a very relieved customer. Only problem it... More
