Description: "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

Best meal in our entire 2-week trip to Texas! Absolutely wonderful fresh guacamole and salsa. Burgers are awesome and cooked to order (no, really!). Friendly, attentive staff. Cool place with the vats right there making beer... everything was perfect. Wish we could have eaten every meal there.

The food was okay, but the beer was great! The service is a little slow, but it is a nice place to hangout and have some great beer!

This place was one of our favorites on S Padre Island. We got an appetizer sampler which included onion rings and fried artichokes. The onion rings were huge and delicious. The fried artichokes were the great and they came with a dill mustard dipping sauce which was AMAZING!!!

Wow! Between the great beer selection (start out with the sampler) and the great food, plus the great service, we were really pleased with our visit to the Padre Island Brewing Co. We even got our kids to try an oyster on the half shell, since they were 50 cents each during happy hour. They didn't like them, but I didn't think they did... Hubby was happy, though! He knows his beer and really liked what he had! We HIGHLY recommend!
