Very good Padre burger w guacamole. Good pepperoni pizza. Particularly liked their sauce. Very good stout. They forgot our 1/2 order of onion rings; heard they were excellent. Turned out we had more than enough food for 2 without them. Friendly, helpful wait staff.

Live on South Padre Island (Mostly) and eat at Brew Pub often - mostly Lunch. Stopped by last week - ordered the fried shrimp. Order delivered in 2 minutes - obviously warmed over - not fresh - and it tasted thus.

The beer battered gulf shrimp was wonderful. If you have room for dessert try the key lime pie. The hubs was yearning for a Coors Light, but enjoyed the brewery's specialty beer.

If you like beer they are well known for their many different kinds. I have only eaten ther once and the food was fine, not exceptional.

On the weekends, you can usually eat up on the upstairs deck, which is quieter, and often you can watch the fireworks. The beer is always great! We go here every year, but we always eat the same food, so I can't say much other...More

The food was awesome. I ate there on three separate occasions and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Great seafood and steaks. Plenty of food so carry out was a must.

Hi Pat, Unfortunately we are prevented by the current health ordinances to allow dogs with the exception of service animals, I'm sorry.
Are babies allowed?

We took our baby granddaughter there with our family, however, I do not recommend going upstairs when you do that. It smells heavily of cigarette smoke........ we made them find us a table downstairs.

"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
