The atmospheric outdoor garden restaurant across the road from the river where the ducks live, lives up to its name as you need to dodge the ducks crossing the road! There is a country feel with fresh kitchen fare and the small local brewery behind....More

Our hotel recommended the Dodging Duck—and it was spot on. First of all, driving over to the restaurant, we discovered the reason for the name. Ducks and geese were crossing River Road going from the creek to an open lot. The cars had to dodge...More

Stopped in here for lunch and was not disappointed. The beer selection was good and the food excellent. We had the pretzel and the meat and cheese. We also split the cobb salad,

I've been enjoying the good food and drinks for years at Dodging Duck Brewhaus. The name is very appropriate because there really are ducks coming from across the street on the River Road Park. It a fun place to enjoy the Hill Country setting.

The food has been consistently great all three times we have gone. The homeade pretzels and mustards are the best!

I have been to the Duck a couple of times this year. The salads are excellent and always large servings. I recently tried the nachos and would not order them again. They were ok but not great especially in comparison to the amazing salads.

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)!
