My wife and I went to Dodging Duck recently for lunch. The location is great - right on River Road and there is large patio to sit outside. The service was not quick to get our order and bring our food. I think they were understaffed. The food was good - large salads and large menu. My wife had the... More

Was taken by locals to this, one of their favorite places, and enjoyed a flavorful lunch with great service! Highly recommend their grilled cheese panini and their salads! Pale Ale was quite tasty too.

Old home conversion with diverse menu. Food served with ample portions by very personable staff. Only wine and beer (mainly micro brews). Had the Amber Ale and did not care for it. Wife had the Chardoney and liked it. Very good diverse menu. Can eat on outside deck. Overall good.

I have been going to the Dodging Duck for 9 years now. It's a "Mom and Pop" business, the food is excellent, the home brew choices change constantly, the setting is quaint, the staff remembers regular customers by name. The food is not your typical bar food at all, it's great food which happens to be served at a microbrewery.

We had a family lunch there. The food was good as was the service. Besides salads, true chili, burgers and sandwiches some exotic meats such as antelope, bison, and quail are on the menu. The place is located in a repurposed house but was very clean. There is also outdoor dining. It is closed on Sunday but right across the... More

Stopped here after dinner. Lovely location, excellent staff and very good beer. Wingman IPA and the current pale ale were great.

I've been here several times and it just never hits the mark for me. There's nothing wrong and I'll probably return but I just find there are plenty of other places in Boerne to eat at. It is nice to get the beer sampler and the beer is OK. The last time I had a burger and it was not... More

The quail breast wrapped in jalapeño with mixed vegetables and rice with mixed vegetables was delicious. My husband loved the four sausage plate but know that you are going to need a box.

The Dodging Duck Brewhaus is located in Boerne, Texas, in the Texas Hill Country. We have an eclectic menu of international and local favorites, from Thai Lettuce Wraps to Chimichurri Grilled Beef Tenderloin to Bratwurst & Sauerkraut. Best of all, we brew great beer! We've already won three gold and three silver medals at the World Beer Championships! Enjoy the ambience as well! Sit on our covered deck and watch the ducks play on the century-and-a-half old mill pond of Cibolo Creek, have an intimate dining experience in one of our lakehouse-style dining rooms, or sit at the wraparound bar and talk beer with the brewmaster (or talk Boerne with the locals)!
