Half Moon Bay Brewing Company never disappoints. Whether you dining on the outdoor patio by one of the firepits or inside in the bar area or dining room it's always a bustling hub of activity, good food, good vibe and cool shirts.

Went here with another couple and really enjoyed it. Good beers, delicious food - steamed clams, fish & chips, and prawns & chips. Great neighborhood spot.

Lovely outside seating and the food was stupendous. Everything from the burger to the fish tacos was yummy. The beer was ice cold and we had a great selection. Thanks to our server Emily for a winderful experience!

For a family, this is probably not the best place to come as it is loud and busy. The service, like the food, was good but not exceptional. Probably better for a night out than a family meal

The kids menu is good, especially the fish and chips. Almost an adult portion and kids eat free on Wednesday. Beer selection is only their own brews. Ok if you want IPA, not great if you want to find your normal favorite. The "Seafood Duo"...More
