Went in at 930 and still got great food. Had the bacon cheeseburger and it was very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful

....and that was just OK. The place was crowded and we were seated upstairs. The nachos we ordered for an appetizer were OK, but the entrees - steak, stuffed chicken and a po boy - were all not great. Service was slow, and the place was so loud we could barely hear each other speak. Not the best meal we... More

We stopped here for lunch one afternoon. Great beer, good food and very friendly staff. We came back the next evening for more beer and Olympics. Great little micro brew in SPI.

I have been coming to South Padre for years. The last 2 times we have come here it was terribly average. Last year we had horrible service and average food. This year we at least had a very good waiter - but our food was very, (as previous reviews have said) - meh - we are probably done coming here.... More

Took time to see a waiter, finally got our drinks, there was no lunch menu. Ordered the cheese burger, not fresh, fries were good. My husband had the fish, more like dinner than lunch. For quality of the food the price was a little high. The beer battered artichokes were wonderful.

Hubby ordered the 5 beers-they all came at once. It would be better if the glasses were colder or the beers were smaller. It was a lot to get through at dinner. The food was passable but nothing really stands out. I had fish with a crab cake and shrimp-didn't like the crab cake. (I will admit that I am... More

I honestly wouldn't return but I'm basing this on my order. We ordered the pizza and it was awful - doughy and generic. I was looking for seafood but it was all fried, nothing grilled. The restaurant was hot and the service was lacking. It's a brewing company so no Corona Lights or Dos Equis, which is fine since they... More

Haven't tried the food yet, but the house made beers are solid...not Stone or Dogfish Head solid...but good tasting easy drinking beers with good flavor. And you can take them to go in a growler.

We ate during lunch on a weekday. My kids & I had burgers. They were good burgers; but nothing exciting. My husband had the Po-boy fish sandwich & a beer; he said it was "okay". Service was good.

"The gastropub movement is well-represented on South Padre Island at Padre Island Brewing Company. Rotating draft selections include several styles of handcrafted suds; Texas Long Board Lager, Tailing Red Amber, and Speckled Trout Stout are among my favorites, when available. If you can’t make up your mind, get the “Sampler Tray,” a tasting of all five beers currently on tap. The menu is extensive—“peel and eat” shrimp, spicy wings, and fried calamari are popular appetizers, as are the chips-and-guacamole combo, ceviche, and nachos. The bar has won an award for its pizza, but I recommend the burgers. If you’re really hungry, order the Texas Burger, a double-patty, one-pound monster topped with jalapenos, mushrooms, and cheese. From the seafood menu, beer-battered shrimp is an obvious choice, and the tuna and flounder are also excellent." From Texas Highways Magazine, June 2015
