“Great Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

To be fair, I only had a few beers here while my girlfriend was shopping. The two different beers I had were very good, the Speckled Trout porter being the best. The meals I saw sitting at the bar, were huge. It certainly looked and smelled good. The place was packed during lunchtime.

“Padre Island Brewing Co.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Great place. Good food and great home brew. Not a lot of room or tables. Not much else to say, I don't like these minimum character reviews.

“Friendly service, decent beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Good happy hour specials on drinks and appetizers between 4 and 6 PM.

Child got pasta and butter, which she didn't care for. Waiter kindly brought a new order with marinara sauce, which she also wasn't wild about. She liked the homemade bread that came with my salad.

We ordered crab-stuffed fried mushrooms and crab cakes, and they were fine. Not bad, not outstanding. Husband had a pizza, which was OK.

The food was pretty average, and the beers were pretty good. Overall, our experience with the restaurants we visited on SPI is that most are pretty average.

“Great food and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This was a pleasant surprise. The service is spot on and the food is delicious. The onion rings are amazing, the burgers are juicy and yummy and not a single complaint.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. The cost was reasonable. The beer was great. There are a lot of choices in the area but I would definately go to Padre Island Brewing Co.again.
