Loved the peel and eat shrimp as well as the fish basket. Great food. The nephew has tried the beer and loves it. Never have been disappointed with anything we have ordered.

Beer was good, garlic shrimp was excellent, the cheeseburger came with wilted lettuce and dry tomato and was average. But the service was unbearable. Slow and indifferent rude and unorganized was the undermanned staff. Plan on waiting a loooooonnnnnggggg time for food and drink. I'll never go back.

We visited this restaurant for the first time yesterday. The staff was extremely pleasant, courteous and fast. The Texas burger was the best restaurant hamburger I've ever eaten, period! Good beer, clean facility and priced right. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

Oh my, best shrimp I've had in a long time. Plenty of food. We also ordered the fried pickles and cheese curds for appetizer and couldn't finish. Check out the onion rings and the peal and eat shrimp pics. Clean place and servers really take care of you.

The beer here was very good (no surprise), and food was ok, worth a visit. I imagine the upstairs outdoor decking would be good in summer.

A group of us enjoyed a beer tasting and tour of the brewery on site. The owner/brewmaster told us of the several beers we tasted and provide the tour. Interesting and informative. Padre Island Brewing Co is committed to the South Padre Island community as it names and dedicates a portion of some brews to sea turtle rescue and fighting... More

Any of their burgers can be made with a boca vegetarian burger. Good selection of their own beers. You get one side with the burgers, I liked the cold slaw or roasted potatoes.

This is one of the better dining establishments on the island. The seafood, pizzas and salads are outstanding. The service is always quick and friendly when we eat there. Don't miss the brownie sundae.

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
