I just can't make a trip to the area without a stop at the Dodging Duck. I love sitting outside on the patio. The sausage & Bavarian potato salad is to die for. Then top that off with one of their huge pretzels, yum!!!!

Lovely location on Cibolo Creek for this festive pub and eatery! Good service enabled us to enjoy a superb variety of local brews, alongside bacon wrapped jalapeño quail--delish! Very enjoyable time and setting.

I live in town and visit often. I am not a beer drinker so cannot advise on the brew; however, my favorite menu item is the lettuce wraps! The peanut sauce is to die for. Highly recommend. Comes in both beef & chicken.

We have been visiting The Duck for years now. Always great food, wonderful staff and a nice sampling of their brews. The Mahi tacos are fantastic. They have soft pretzels that are hot and fresh with a chipotle raspberry dipping soft. Huge tasty hamburgers with the best jalapeño cheese buns. Flavorful fries. I could go on and on. We love...

We were looking for something that would be comfortable, and also have a varied menu...and this restaurant pub was just right. It was very busy when we got there, so it is clearly a popular spot for both locals and visitors. We tried some of their brewed beers and my husband really liked his. I tried the house Pinot Grigio... More

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.

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)!
