After wandering downtown, we popped in for some beers and food. There was a huge selection of beers. We tried the Cajun Gator bites as an appetiser, this was really nice, and we both had burgers for main, again these were good. In all, a...nice relaxed atmosphere and good service.More

We decided to host a party for our company's business social at Hell N Blazes. We looked all over Melbourne for a casual fun atmosphere which would cater to particular food needs as well as have a "Florida theme" place. Our clients were from all...over the US and Canada so we were excited to show off Melbourne. We couldn't have been happier. Perfect game room setting where people could mingle and not feel chained to a table. The food was prepared to specification! They assigned two servers for our group of ~40 people. The servers hussled !! Offered friendly conversation and no one waited for a drink. They created an atmosphere of being in someone's home for a party.More

Excellent service, food beer and atmosphere equals a homerun. We were greeted by the server as soon as we sat down offering his assistance and getting water for us right away. Once ordered our beer was delivered to our table quickly and cold. The food...menu had a good variety of choices what we ordered was delicious. If you are looking for a microbrewery in the Melbourne area, do yourself a favor and go here first!More

Hell n Blazes Brewing Co.- Melbourne, FL- 3 Stars Located in a building on New Haven that dates back to 1898, and most recently housed a small boutique catering to the Christmas season and tourists, one finds our destination of the day, Hell n Blazes...Brewing Co. After being dry for 241 days and with nary a mention of grub in the name, I have to say that I was a bit apprehensive about my next meal. Upon entering it was obvious that, name notwithstanding, this place was built as a brewery first, food service joint as an afterthought. Even with the emphasis put on the brewing aspect, the whole came off as a very friendly design and the place was stocked with an extremely outgoing and charming staff. With a full bar and at least nine freshly brewed beers on tap, my mouth was watering. Foregoing the inviting libations, I turned my attention to the job at hand. Perusing the menu, it came off as your typical pub fare with enough creativity thrown in to make it interesting. My waitress introduced herself as Sara, and while she had the appearance of a headliner at Lilith Fair, she is super knowledgeable on the menu and spot-on to the point of being a 4-star server all day long. I asked Sara for one Goat Burger (medium rare) and an order of their Mac and Cheese. Counting the minutes as I tried in vain to divert my eyes from the whispering beer taps, I soon saw Sara approaching with my order. As soon as she placed my food on the table, I graciously waved her off, snapped the obligatory pictures and dug in. The bun the burger was served on a perfectly toasted delicious Kaiser bun. The meat itself was hand-formed and cooked as ordered, the sad part was that the mushrooms were obviously pre-sliced. That doesn't mean they weren't fresh, just that they appeared to perfectly sliced to be sliced to order. I could be wrong, maybe the chef is that good. The onions were sauteed to a delightful caramelization and the accompanying Arugula added a nice bite to the aftertaste. All in all it was your average pub burger. The Mac and Cheese was an appealing spiral Mueller pasta, however, the dish itself came off as being melted in the microwave. The taste was fine, again, nothing spectacular, but far from the bottom of the barrel. As the items sampled were ordinary, I would be wary of venturing away from your typical burgers and brew here. The Big Boy says, “For a wide variety of freshly brewed beer and good burgers, this historic building is a good destination to keep in mind!” #bigboydiningout #bigboyMore

Good ambience, but the seating isn’t comfortable. Our server was really nice. The beer flight and margarita were tasty, but the food was the real problem. My husband had a reuben sandwich (on the daily special menu) and I had the brisket grilled cheese and...they were both incredibly dry. My hubby said the reuben barely had any thousand island dressing and only had a tiny amount of sauerkraut. The brisket grilled cheese had A LOT of brisket in it, but it was dry and didn’t have a smoked flavor; if there was sauce on the sandwich you couldn’t see it, and it had maybe one thin slice of melted cheddar. Also, I ordered the whipped russets as a side, but instead received garlic roasted yukon golds which were - - you guessed it: dry. 😖More

We stumbled upon this place while touring historic downtown Melbourne and we're glad we did. It was late afternoon during mid-week when we dropped in for some brew and food. It wasn't too busy and we sat at the bar. The place was roomy and...rather quiet, which is how I like it. I always enjoy sampling the local craft beers and enjoyed the flight of 4 beers that I ordered. We tried a few things from their food menu, all of which were very good. This included their Charcutery Board, Fire Burger, with the hottest jalapenos I think I ever had, (for me, that's a good thing) and Chicken Tenders. Our server Kelsey did her best to see that we were satisfied. And we were! My only regret is that I didn't have more time to spend there.More

I and several friends have visited Hell n' Blazes numerous times since they originally opened. For beer lovers, they have an exceptional selection. The food menu is OK, it is pub food but very tasty. The staff is great and have treated us very nicely....There is ample parking, on the street, their private lot adjacent and across the street loads of parking in an empty lot.More

We rented the vault room. They say it holds 45 but 30 was pretty crowded. The historical items in the safe and history of the building was cool. The cost to rent the room was $50.00 which was not much in my opinion.

I stayed at the Super 8 and it was clean and OK for me. I'd recommend staying at the beach and Ubering to the restaurant and bar scene.
