We had been told to give it a try. As you can imagine it is a microbrewery that brews their own beer and serves tons of other distributors products. I am not a big beer drinker but their summer wheat blonde was very refreshing. We liked it so much we stayed and had seafood which we would highly recommend. Great... More

3 generation trip to South Padre Island brought us to this brewery/restaurant for happy hour , appetizers, and pizza. The atmosphere is good and the food was well prepared.

I can't say this was the best experience at a restaurant. When we walked in it didn't smell pleasant, but we still decided to give it a shot and it was ok. Nothing worth going back for. Then we sat at the table waiting for our check while the server was at the bar talking.

We went there on a Thursday night and sat outside on their upstairs patio with our kid. It was perfect! We had the pizza which was thin crust and a couple of their different brews. You can see the fireworks at 9. It was great to just sit there and chill in the breeze.

Great assortment of craft beers brewed on premises. Raspberry Wheat was excellent. Hot bread loaves had a great texture, but were apparently made with wort, and contained too much hops, so it tasted bitter - very strange. Grilled shrimp fine, coleslaw was excellent and fresh, as was the broccoli (not on menu - just ask for it).

I grew up in South Texas and have visited SPI many times but I had never been here until 08/07/14. I ran in for a few minutes to buy some souvenir glasses and a growler. I filled it with their Tidal Wave Wheat. It was very good, smooth, no head. Unfortunately this was all I had a chance to try.... More

The food and beer here are pretty good. They brew on site as well as have other beers available. The sampler flight of their house beers was good and very inexpensive, but be prepared because the five beers were not tiny sample size! The food was good but not inexpensive. They have good appetizers - fried cheese curds and fried... More

I had the blond beer. It was honestly really good. However $4.75 plus tax for any beer is way too much. They make it here? Not to much overhead! Probably too many servers. I'm local and this is obviously a tourist trap. Didn't even bring me my change. If you like to spend money it's a good place. I like... More

I stopped in for a quick snack while I was waiting on my family and had the calamari which was well prepared and served hot with a spicy dipping sauce. I started with the raspberry wheat and it was a sweet light beer with a good taste and great after taste. Then I had the speckled trout stout. I brew... More

I had alot of people saying we should try this restaurant. My husband and I took our oldest daughter, her husband and our two grandkids here recently for dinner. While our daughter and son in law enjoyed their meal, my husband and I thought it was horrible. They were out of oysters........so we both got the shrimp basket............seriously? 4 shrimp??????... More
