The pub was located conveniently in a very centralized part of Abita Springs, and right next to where they hold every Sunday the town's Farmer's Market. The waitress was sweet and the service was just fine. My disappointment was the food. I ordered one of...my favorites, the 'Reuben Sandwich'. Taste wise, not bad, but the presentation and the size of it for the price, had no comparison. The sandwich appeared to be just a quick thin one you make at home. For the cost, I would expect something a little bit more impressive. Maybe, it was just that day, and I should give it another try in the future.More

Had dinner here April 23. Food and cocktails were great, service good. Sat outside and it was a relaxing atmosphere. Why a 4 rating. They allow dogs to sit in the eating area with their owners. One sat near me, it was a large dog....The lady had a problem controlling the dog, which had the potential of being. Parking can be a challenge. There are a few establishments in the area. I would return.More

A friend recommended the Pub and we were NOT disappointed! The service was fast and super courteous and the food was fantastic. One of us had the Pecan-Crusted Catfish, one had Fried Catfish and I had an amazing Pasta dish with no meat. The craft...beers were excellent as was the Margarita! Can't wait to visit again!More

Good was pretty good, though more bread than bisque in the shrimp bisque bread bowl. The 3 others in my group enjoyed their meals. We all enjoyed the desserts - homemade tiramisu and key lime pie. The beer drinkers liked the various Abita Beers. The...venue was packed on a Friday night. Were told the wait was 20 minutes, but it was actually 50 minutes. We were paged in about 35 minutes, then told our table was being cleaned, then forgotten by the hostess. When finally assigned a table, we had to we our way thru the over-crowded bar to get to the table. Wait staff were working very hard, but we're obviously short-staffed. Suggestion: move the hostess stand to the enclosed outdoor porch. Dining patrons wouldn't have to run the gauntlet through the bar patrons. Also need to enforce capacity rules in the bar area. The band was OK, but we expected better, with all the good musicians in the area.More

My husband and I were in Abita Springs overnight, and stopped here on the way out of town. We sat at the bar and watched football, drank great beer, and had the most delicious food. The staff was awesome! We enjoyed our meal so much...that we drove back through Abita Springs a couple of days later just to eat here again. I had pasta both visits - the soft shell crab special and the eggplant napoleon. Huge portions and the fried items in the dishes were light and not greasy. My husband had the seafood bucket on our first visit (so much food) and then a burger - he gave a thumbs up to both! Try the crawfish cornbread and (I know this sounds so random with all the other great appetizer choices) the pretzel and beer cheese. We can’t wait to return to the area and have another meal here!More

Coming from Colorado, the literal mecca of microbrew, it's really hard to impress us when it comes to beer, yet my god do they brew some winners. All our beers were delicious, as were every single appetizer that we tried, with special mention to that...crab and corn bisque. That soup will be haunting my dreams for years to come. They were slammed busy but our waitress was so sweet and attentive, we really didn't want for anything and had the best lunch on their beautiful patio. We'll be back, on that you can count.More

We enjoyed a late lunch on New Year's Eve that turned into dinner. Truly good food, and excellent service. Embarrassed that I can't remember the waiter's name, but his red hair should help you find him. Also, patio dining is available. That's a major plus...during the challenges of Covid.More

Our journey to eat brought us to Abita Springs, Louisiana. Where the restaurant is located is in an area where there are multiple businesses to visit. But back to the Brew Pub. For starters we had fried calamari. The way they fried the calamari is...how I personally like it, very crispy. For our main meal my wife had the Paradise Burger topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato, & pickles. The burger was huge and cooked just right. She enjoyed it very much. I had one of the daily specials, Cal's Meatloaf. There were two slices of meatloaf covered with brown gravy. The sides were smashed potatoes and assorted veggies. I don't eat meatloaf very often but this dish was very good. Since it was a beautiful day we dined on the outside patio. Now to the beer. The Brew Pup has a wide variety of beers to choose from. My personal favorite is their Abita Amber. They will let you sample beers that are on their menu. Highly suggest a visit to the Abita Brew Pub.More

It was a great menu and wide amount of options. The portions were great. The two napkin po boy did live up to the name! Wasn’t thrilled with the waiter but that didn’t detract from the restaurant.

Since they are completely separate entities now, that is unfortunate. I doubt the Pub has a webmaster keeping it up to date, while the brewery most certainly does. FYI, the pub menu is traditional southern fare: fried... More
