“Went with the waiter's recommendations...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Burgers and pizza....yes!!!! When going to a costal town, beer and pizza is not exactly what we would be looking to eat....yet after arriving and looking at the menu, we asked our waiter for advice. We went ahead and ordered the avocado bacon burger and a supreme pizza. These basic sounding items were actually VERY tasty. The burger was fresh, juicy and cooked perfectly with fresh toppings on a homemade roll. Even our child who usually downs the fries first couldn't quit eating her burger until it was gone before touching the waffle fries....lol The pizza.....wow! All I have to say is thank goodness SOME places understand how good a pizza can be with NO sauce. That pizza was one of the best I have had in years!!! Also, the shandy and the IPA were tasty accompanying beers.

“We came expecting good burgers.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

On a recommendation from a beautician from the Texas hill country, we ate at the Port Aransas Brewing Company. On eating our meal, I understood her enthusiasm for the food here. The burgers were served on fresh buns, which were an added plus. With the burger, you have the choice of waffle fries or sweet potato fries. You can not go wrong with either choice. What did surprise us were the deserts. We came expecting good burgers, yet discovered that they have some wonderful cupcakes as well.

The staff were attentive during our visit. They were friendly along with being knowledgeable about the food as well. There is something about being waited on by a friendly, smiling face that makes a meal more enjoyable.

The local beer was good, yet not their strongest point. They had about eight local brew selections (amber, blonde, hefeweisen, IPA, etc.) along with many others on tap or in bottles. The wide selection of other beers is notably larger than many of the other restaurants in the area. They also have a brew club for those who wish to try a wide selection of their seasonal choices.

“very tasty food and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Food is great and reasonably priced. Beer is fresh and tasty. I always try to eat at microbreweries because the food is usually good and this is no exception!

“Burgers better than the beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

The fresh, homemade bun made the difference for a very tasty burger. The sweet potato fries were a nice addition to the menu. The beer-battered shrimp and regular fries were good but not amazing.

The brewed beer seemed on the bitter side, according to my husband, and there were no house wines available the night we stopped. The waitress, though, did indicate that she added a little extra to my glass.
