“Craft beer on the island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This may be the only place on Port Aransas Island to get quality craft beer. Flites available and food is ok.

“Beer and burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

My husband and I stopped into the brewing company for a beer and burger. They were out of the blonde beer so we tried the mustang beer. The beer was great. We ordered a burger and a chicken Fried chicken sandwich. We were expecting just an average bar food- we were WRONG! The burger was AMAZING!!! The server went into the history of the meat and the cows. The cows were from north texas. Before our trip comes to an end, we will be stopping back in for another burger!

“Gotta love the Mustang Ale”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We come down each year for MustangFest -- it's a tradition to stop at Port A Brewing for a Boss 302 pizza and a Mustang Ale on Sunday after awards and before everyone heads home.

Space is a bit tight (both seating and parking), but not too bad. It does get loud when the restaurant is packed making it a little hard to hold a conversation.

The food's great, had the pizza which was on a brown and light crust with lots of toppings and cheese.

Lots of beers to choose from and the local ones are the best.

Would recommend this for a lunch stop while in Port A.

“Best Beer selection on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The food is really good, large tasty Burgers and Pizzas that are LOADED with quality toppings, But come here for the beer selection. They must have 75 kinds of beer, plus - this is a brewery! Fresh brewed beer on tap. Sports on multiple flat screen TVs. 5 stars.

“OK but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

very noisy inside, you could not have a conversation with the people at your table. The food was not as good as it has been in the past, we ordered fried shrimp, bacon cheddar burger, avacado burger and a cheese burger. The cheeseburger was great, the bacon on the bacon cheddar burger was burned, the avacado burger was overcooked, the shrimp were very dull tasting and over breaded. Our waiter never came by to refill our drinks, came by once after our food was delivered to make sure it got to us. They did not appear to have enough employees working on a Sunday afternoon
