Great Beer...not sure about the food

This place is always a favorite stop on SPI. They do a good job with the beer. I suppose the food is ok but I've always considered this a place to drink rather than eat. Staff are always pleasant and cheerful.

Drink...drink and be merry. Goes down easy. Special beer all around. Tried the Shrimp Ceviche and couldn't have been more pleased.

We lucked out and got there for Happy Hour. The craft brews were $3 and they had some really good deals on food as well. The waitstaff was very attentive and they had an upper deck that was open. We will be looking forward to going back next time we are in town.

Oh my goodness, the pecan crusted shrimp, was out of this world. Loved the atmosphere, and the food.

Found out about this place by surfing the web and we were glad we did. The Blonde Ale was really good beer and don't forget about the food. The burger was one of the best burgers, thick, juicy, and seasoned just right. And I loved the garlic mashed potatoes! The crab cakes weren't Maryland crab cakes as they are done... More

Went here last night and it was awful. Family said they have good pizza and burgers, but we wanted fish. Should have gone with the burgers. Our bill was $75 and the food quality maybe was worth $20. The fish was tough, not local catch, and the breading was terrible. Beer was decent. Waiter was nice. If you go, go... More

We went to the Padre Island Brewing Co. for dinner with our 9-year-old daughter. It wasn't crowded and there was no wait on a Thursday night. My husband had the Sampler Tray of beers and thought they were decent. I had the Fresh Gulf Shrimp Taco Wrap and didn't like it. I can't put my finger on why... it just... More

Good food, lots of variety. Calzones, burgers, ribs, salads and lots of cold beer. Not a place for a quiet talk but a great place for friends or families to eat and drink.

My husband got the beer sampler with his lunch and he like every one of the beers. The food was absolutely delicious and the server was wonderful!

I like the Blond Ale brewed here, so a stop in for a burger and beer is always nice. Great wait staff and they always have the latest sports stations giving updates on scores, etc. Also like the brew kettles being right on premises.
