best ribs

I'm not much for all the "weird" beers they brew & serve, but they have the most tender, fall'off'the'bone" smoked ribs I've ever eaten. Their sauce is not my favorite, so next time I will ask them to leave it off. The rub on them was good.

i had the beer sampler and thought it was great..we ordered the baby back ribs...not to our liking for sure...much too smoky for us...service was good..and it was busy..so I'm sure great for a younger scene...

This establishment offered a good selection of tasty brews. We were seated promptly but otherwise the service was very slow. The food was a big disappointment. We got there in time to take advantage of the happy hour specials. We ordered the three appetizer platter with individual pizzas. We chose fried calamari, crab stuffed mushrooms, and fried artichokes. The batter... More

Padre Island Brewing Company has the best batter for "Bring Your Own Catch". Bring in your own fillets clean and ready to cook. Order the fires and soup (I had beef soup with onions) and chase the whole meal with a Speckled Trout Stout. WOW!!! I will be back with my own catch!!! We had a party of six so... More

we came for appetizers and a drink. We had seafood stuffed mushrooms. Chips n salsa and guacamole. The stuffed mushrooms were very very good as we're the chips and salsa and guac. Very fresh. The place was clean. Our server was very upbeat and on the ball. I love it when they joke and horse around with us. Very nice

We try to visit local brewerys when we travel, and found this one on Padre Island! It is a small brewery, but they only had 5 beers to offer. We tried the sampler, which was a very good price, $6.25 for 5 6oz samples! 30 ounces for $6.25 is a good price anywhere, plus these were very good beers! I... More

The food and beer are great but what's up with the lighting? Patrons' voices carry in this place so the atmosphere isn't great. Maybe some acoustic tiles would help.

My favourite spot on the island. Great Beer, good food, fair prices and a fabulous staff. We visited the brew pub several times both for a happy hour drink and as well for dinner. January offered a winter ale that really hit the spot after a day of fishing.

Well, it's not right on the beach but, very close. A nice place to grab a good micro brew and tasty lunch or dinner. Casual setting and good prices. Friendly staff and a very cool rooftop deck to enjoy in the warm months.

I ordered a salad and it was great. I tried a pale ale and it was good too, however not a big selection to pick from...was disappointed. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was cozy. There was nothing to overly special about the padre island brewing company.
