Benefits from being so near Mexico, so basic food is tasty. We had the snapper with chile cream sauce. Add a little homemade poco de gallo and it was yum. Chix tortilla soup good. Bock beer not to my liking (tasted old), but the wheat was refreshing. Pale was bitter, but a little flat. Choco flan got a thumbs up... More

From outside it looks promising but inside the decor is very drab, most dishes are quite expensive and the ones we tried weren't very good. The hamburger was processed meat and tasted like McDonald's. The beer was OK, but we won't be coming back.

Love the beers and the chicken salad! Friendly, open, a bit noisy! TVs at the bar if you are wanting to see a particular game! Servings are large so it is possible to share an entree and have enough to eat...unless you are really hungry.

I frequent a lot of brew pubs and this one is about average. The beer selection was good and the food menu had a variety of items to choose from. The atmosphere was nice and the prices were in line with what we expected. We shared some u peel em shrimp for starters and ordered a pizza. The pizza had... More

It was one of the better places I went while in south padre. I have been there 3 x in the last couple years and it has always been good. This last visit in March 2014 was a good visit. The pizza was really great. And the cheese curds and fried pickles were great also. I had a craft beer... More

First time the cheeseburgers were fantastic. Decided to give them a second try and experience different items. Ceviche (with cooked shrimp) was overpriced & tasteless, making it way too spicy doesn't hide the fact that it is bad. Then ordered their Calzone with peppers and pepperoni. Pepperoni was stacked like cheap turkey...kind of sickening. Crust was obviously prepared in advance... More

Good beers, excellent pizza. Waitress had to come back twice to ask us what we ordered on our pizza (maybe she should have written it down instead of just trying to remember it). However, the food was good enough that we came back a second time for their shrimp basket. The shrimp was suppose to be beer battered but it... More

Cos was our server and he was great. Very personable and accommodating. We ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer. Two cakes, very tasty and just the right amount to start the meal. I ordered a flight of their five top beers, a bock, an India pale ale, a light ale, a wheat and a stout. All sat very nicely... More

My husband and I recently visited SPI and we decided to try the Padre Island Brewing Co. We were NOT impressed with their menu!! Very basic pub fare!!! With that said they could not cook my husband's burger correctly and it needed to be sent back twice!!! I had finished my salad by the time the second burger was brought... More
