What a surprise! The two meals we had for lunch were great. Loved the chicken tortilla soup. My husband had brats with German potato salad ( one of the best ever. Touch of sweet made it special). He also had Sauer kraft made worth a tpuch of beer. Please stop if you're are in Boerne,TX.

The restaurant has a very charming, rustic setting. It was once an older home converted to a restaurant. There is an outside verandah to dine on as well as inside rooms and outside lawn tables. Your view is of the river and river walk. The lunch menu has a nice variety of choices although I felt for the portion it... More

Nice patio seating looking at the river park. Ashley, our server was knowledgeable and attentive. I had the venison bratwurst and the jalapeño and cheese bratwurst served with spicy mustard and cranberry mustard. The combinations were great. My son tried the antelope burger and sweet potato fries, and said both were good.

Highly recommend the Dodging Duck for a relaxed patio view of the river, delicious meal and great service! We had buffalo burger, Boerne House Salad with light herb dressing, brewhaus beers and cherry crumble with vanilla bean ice cream for dessert! You will now NEED to go across the street and walk along the river, enjoying the ducks as you... More

We chose this restaurant based on other reviews and on the fact that it was open after 3 on a Sunday. Ordered the fried green tomatoes (not listed on the current menu, but are still available) which were large and delicious. Also ordered the Smoked Meat Sampler which had a tasty pork tenderloin when paired with the cheese. Had the... More

Very casual place but you can sit outside on a covered porch (heated in winter) or in front lawn (and bring your dog), or sit inside. One of the older, smaller buildings in Boerne, but worth the visit. Food is good (especially the shishito peppers and large pretzels with sausage and cheese), a nice variety of food on the menu,...

The Dodging Duck has a wonderful view topped with an excellent staff full of great information on the best brew. My lunch time favorite was the Giant Pretzel with Sausage and a wine spritzer.

Visited this popular spot and their home made potatoes chips are the best - light and crisp. They were a perfect accompaniment to the deep fried Pollack.

The Dodging Duck Brewhaus is located in Boerne, Texas, in the Texas Hill Country. We have an eclectic menu of international and local favorites, from Thai Lettuce Wraps to Chimichurri Grilled Beef Tenderloin to Bratwurst & Sauerkraut. Best of all, we brew great beer! We've already won three gold and three silver medals at the World Beer Championships! Enjoy the ambience as well! Sit on our covered deck and watch the ducks play on the century-and-a-half old mill pond of Cibolo Creek, have an intimate dining experience in one of our lakehouse-style dining rooms, or sit at the wraparound bar and talk beer with the brewmaster (or talk Boerne with the locals)!
