Need a place to hang out on a day at the beach? Have a good brew? Good burger? Sit by the fire pit? Or inside? Bring your dog? The Brewing Company is the place. We always enjoy a lazy afternoon here.

I got to HMB Brewing last night not long before close, meeting up with my extended family. The fish tacos were recommended so I went with a half order (one) of a crispy fish taco and an IPA. It was an outstanding meal. With my in-laws living in San Diego I've been able to visit often and have become a... More

Have eaten here five times and have had excellent food and service each time. The crispy calamari appetizer, crispy seafood sampler, and Kobe brew burger never disappoint. February 12, Sunday evening there was live music and the atmosphere was casual, warm, friendly. Always look forward to eating here as the food is excellent and the portions are perfect, an all...

Casual place where you can bring the entire family and your dog for a patio seating. Excellent beer flights and hamburgers!

Had a quick business meeting with a local who suggested we go to "The Brewing Co". I agreed and was pleasantly surprised to find this great spot. Lunch was affordable and delicious. The wait staff did an excellent job and we had no issues at all. I will definitely return when in the area.

We ate and drank with some thirty of us. The food was fine, and the beer good and plentiful. As always, portions were far too big, but I'm used to that now. Starters were tasty and varied, though I didn't try any of the desserts.

Thought we would have a light lunch. After clam chowder in s bread bowl, a shared salad and an appetizer of nachos, we were stuffed. Definitely great food and reasonable. Ashley was very attentive, never letting our ice tea dry out. Will be on our list whenever in the neighborhood.

We usually stop by HMBBC when in the area. Lots of parking, local brews on tap and the outside is more than awesome, it's dog friendly. Local flavor. We recently stopped by on a chilly day without our dog and opted to eat inside. Nice view and comfortable seating. We had grilled fish (rock cod) tacos. Yum! Service was prompt... More

This place is a must visit for beer enthusiasts or anyone looking for a fresh seafood lunch while visiting Half Moon Bay! The outdoor seating is particularly enjoyable. We were there on a colder day, and they had heat lamps outside to keep the chill away. We sat next to a window that blocked the wind but allowed a beautiful... More

We had 13 people for lunch celebrating the union of two people in love. The staff was attentive but not intruding. We had not been to this restaurant before and was totally happy with the quality of the food as well as the quantity. We will be back when we are in the area.

Thank Brenda C
