“Good burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

We have never been to this area before, but we noticed it was the busiest eatery in Port A when we drove through, so we chose it for lunch. The burgers were great, the atmosphere "beachy", and the service a bit unusual. The place was about two thirds full, but we had a guy and gal server. Not sure what that was all about. They basically followed each other around. Not really terrible, just weird. My only complaint was the ladies room was filthy. Try NOT to go in there. The trashcan (plastic), could easily be hosed down. Made me feel almost ill I had eaten there. I rarely complain, but the bathroom was awful!

“Easily the best pizza on four continents; Really”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We were here in June and found out they don't serve their deep dish pizza during the busy summer months. So, yes you guessed it, we came back during the winter months. As we discovered last year (2011), their deep dish "meat lovers" pizza is simply unequaled. I say this as both a pizza lover and someone who has eaten pizza on four different continents. Let me explain; pizza is much more than bread, a dash of sauce and toppings. Pizza is an explosion of culinary delights that results in an eating experience that should be simply unforgettable. While Frank's Pizza in Apple Valley, California is a very close second, PA Brewing Co. is the best of the best. The meat is very abundant and the sauce is more than ample and expertly seasoned. The crust is thick, but not too thick; chewy but not too chewy. Best yet is the cheese: mozzarella, thick and hot. Put all of this together and you get, in my humble and expert opinion, the finest pizza on four continents (Europe, Asia, N. America, S. America). We leave in four days and will be back before going home. Don't forget, it takes 25 minutes to cook. Bring a big appetite and Enjoy.

“Good food and good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Went for dinner while on vacation. Busy but didn't have to wait to be seated. I was impressed with our service and the prices were great, especially on the beers if you go for that. Food was good. We had two burgers which were tasty. Sweet potato fries could have been a bit more seasoned. Food was received quickly. Loved the bun the burger came on.

“Hand-crafted beers are here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

The beer list goes on and on. They pride themselves in making some of the best beers, right there. The appetizers are to die for, generous portions, and freshly made. They also serve award winning burgers. Service was good. Will be back again soon.

“Plain on begging for service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

We come here all the time when in Port Aransas. In fact I am the current 'mayor' on foursquare. The food is good. Wings are the best. Pizza is great.

Only problem we have ever had has been the service. We usually sit at the bar. No one under 21 is allowed to sit at he bar which is great to shield yourself from the screaming babies that tend to frequent this establishment.

We have had several of the bartenders walk right in front of us and totally ignore us. I understand you are busy. A simple 'I'll be right with you' goes a long way.

Once we do get service then the servers seem to be friendly. Although, I do not think it is appropriate for the servers to complain about their other customers within earshot of us.

I don't like to complain very often but this has happened on more than on of our visits.

That being said the food is good but the staff could use a customer service 101 refresherer course.
