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

“Delicious, fresh pizza!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Nice restaurant with delicious pizza, fresh and made to order. It can be pricey if you like to load on the veggies like we do. The one topping (includes only one meat or veggie) is abt $14 then an extra $2.50(approx) for each additional meat or veggie.... But they load on the toppings!!! We would definitely visit and order the shrimp pizza again!!

“Good beer, Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We almost always visit Padre Island Brewing when we go to SPI. Their beer is good & they always have 5 samplers (which really is a nice-sized glass of each) for like $5.25, so it's a good way to try different beer. The food is average & seems a little overpriced. The Crab Stuffed flounder is very good, but pricey. You can find items on the menu that are less expensive. The Children's Menu is not the healthiest & kind of expensive for what you get.

“Okay food but terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

The beer was okay, but service was terrible (slooooowwwww). Food was okay. We had a steak, a pizza, the fish combo, and four kids meals. All were overpriced and mediocre, but about what I expect in a tourist town.

“Good beer and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

I try to make a habit of visiting the local brew joints when I travel. The food was good and at a decent price and the beer was yummie. Only five brews to choose from, but all were good. Get the brew sampler which allows you to taste all their brews. The samples are large so be prepared...it's like drinking two pints by the time you're done. The Fajitadelphias are really good and so are the fried cheese curds. They have special plates daily. It's a good place for lunch.

“Best food on island.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had a great time at the Padre Island Brewing Company. We tried the beer sampler, which was good. The fried cheese curds were delicious, as well. All of the food we ordered was of a higher quality than our other dining experiences on the island. Decor is casual and there is no view, but good food and drinks. Was family friendly for evening dining.
