“Great food and beer”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Freetail has an excellent selection of their own beers, which are all good. The food is also superior. The goat cheese dip was unique and fabulous. The macaroni and cheese was fantastic. It is a casual place.

“Great IPA selection”
Reviewed February 24, 2012 via mobile

Went here for a late dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious pizza! I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted but ended up going with the Supreme Batastrophe. Pepperoni, sausage, red onion, mushrooms and bell peppers. Yum! Lots of IPA choices and they do a good job of rotating them out. I had the Broken Treaty IPA and I loved it! Service was excellent. I would definitely go back.

“Great for Beer Lovers who also eat...but not necessarily for kids”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Up front, I want to say the service was excellent. Wait staff was awesome and spent alot of time attending to our needs.
This trip was for adults to sample some beers we had heard about, but the kids were in tow as well since it was weekend. It was early afternoon, not too crowded. The crowd was pleasant and upscale. Plenty of room to spread out inside and outside. Sportsbar/pizza joint feel to the place.
Adult drinks were properly served. Food was served up pretty quickly. Cost wasn't outside the norm - cheaper than say Applebees but more than a mom&pop Mexican food restaurant.
Food selection very limited. Again, think pizzaria, not restaurant. If your kids arent into pizza, bread and garlic, then consider another option.
Beer - I tried 8 different beers that they had on tap - nothing spectacular.
If trying alot of unique beer of hard-to-find styles and you aren't picky about what goes into your tummy to help absorb it, this place is decent, especially if you want to converse with someone who helped brew the beer. If you have a specific beer you want to drink, along with some high expectations about cuisine, check out a uber taphouse/style restaurant, or call ahead to your favorite eatery and see what they have on tap (I know Pappadeaux 's routinely keeps Sam Adams varieties on tap)

“Good place but needs a Host!”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

It sucks that this place is good to eat at, but it is first come first serve...even if you have a large party that arrives late, this place will allow them to sit there for an hour. Little do they realize they lose money this way! As an event planner, there is too much competition for me to bring anyone close to here. Pick the next spot down the road on this one.

“Great Food and Beer”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We've been to Freetail several times now from Houston. Everytime we visit there are great new beers and always order our favorite dish, the Buffalo Chicken pizza. The service has always been great and it's a must visit everytime we are in San Antonio.
