“good beer and live music”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Being from Austin, TX, we appreciate a place that has live music AND good brew! This place had both, BUT the BBQ was average (again, spoiled rotten Austinites have it GOOOD when it comes to BBQ, so we're picky). For most people, it would pass as the best they've ever had... until they come to Austin. Staff was friendly, and the handcarved / handmade wood fish on the walls were unique!

“First Stop”

Frank, a great waiter, hopefully you'll have the pleasure of meeting him. The pale brew was the best of the four house brews

“Friendly in atmosphere & price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is a nice addition to the island. The food is very good for such reasonable prices. I like the feeling of the bar and the wait staff are very friendly. This past spring they unveiled their first beer brewed on site and everyone at my table enjoyed it as well as discussing it's merits with the owner, a very friendly, attentive guy.

If you are looking for good value and a friendly atmosphere, you can't go wrong here! Oh, and you'll love the BBQ.

“Meat lover heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I suspect there must be better places in Texas for the famed BBQ but, coming as a repeated visitor, I didn't find any in the vicinity.
Their sampler - smoky, juicy, and tender - is a pound of sensational meat, for less than $15.
They have some beers with characters brewed right there. If you like something unusual, go for the smoked porter, made with hops that first sit in their smokehouse for a while.
We will be back on every kiteboarding trip to SPI, that's settled!
