Reviewed July 20, 2013

We had a 40 minute wait....the place was packed, so that was a good sign. The ruben sandwich was so good. The side dishes are so homey. The service was quick and efficient. Bathrooms clean, but could be just a bit tidier.

“Great brewery in Fredericksburg”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Been twice to Fredericksburg & always stop in at Fredericksburg Brewing Co. The beer is always good & service great. Be sure to pick up the 2 liter beer to take home & enjoy within a week or so. Good for up to a month unopened. once you open it drink it within a couple of days.

“Worst restaurant EVER”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The chalupas were swimming in grease and the hamburgers tasted like spoiled meat. No one in a party of four ate more than a few bites of food. We paid the bill and left without touching any more of the meal. We are not fussy people but this food was beyond what any reasonable person would accept. Our party ended up going to the Theater without dinner and eating at home. The restaurant could care less about the quality and service since they figure your a tourist and only pass through one time. I get the sense after reading reviews of other restaurants in this town that it is a common problem in this town. There are better restaurants in neighboring towns.

We appreciate you choosing the brewery and apologize that your experience was anything less than great. We take pride in our food and want all our guests, locals and tourists alike, to enjoy their meal as well as our craft beer every time they visit us. Our town (our business included) thrives on tourists and we value every one that passes through. Their return business and word of mouth is what has kept us in business since 1994.

We always want our guests to enjoy every aspect of their visit with us and hope that if there is every anything wrong with our food, service etc. that they will speak with a manager about the issues while on site so that we can remedy the situation immediately. After the fact it is hard to pinpoint what the situation was and determine how we can fix it; we always wish to improve in any way we can. We hope that you will stop in again and give us the chance to impress you. We are a small, family owned, company and we appreciate your business.

I ordered the "Best Reuben in Town" and have to agree with that. The service was excellent and I was able to sample (for $1.25) a beer before I ordered a pint...I like that!
