I really liked the atmosphere in this venue and the views from the rooftop were lovely. It was nice to be so close to the ocean whilst enjoying a drink with friends. We tried a few of the small dishes between two of us and it was more than enough. We were impressed with the quality of the food and... More

Our hotel was right across the street from this place so we came here for dinner a couple of times. Thursday evenings from 5pm until 10pm is all you can eat shrimp night. For around $20 a head you can stuff yourself silly on fried or Cajun shrimp with salad and choice of fries or baked potato. I chose the... More

We stayed next door at Ocean Park Inn and decided we wanted a good spot to watch the sunset. The rooftop deck at PB Alehouse is a great spot for that! We only had drinks, so I cant say anything about the food other than it looked great!

Stopped by for a late lunch after a long walk on the boardwalk - service was great, fish tacos were fabulous and the fish and chips were massive! Great spot, would return again.

The view of the ocean, friendly staff, and great garlic fries made for a very pleasant visit. Prices are reasonable if you factor in the view. The fish tacos were a little weak on the shell, but otherwise tasty as well. I would return here (and next time, I'm told to try the shrimp tacos).

I ate here twice while on vacation over New Year's. First time we sat on their roof top and enjoyed a delicious lunch with a great view of the beach! I kept trying to sneak bites of my boyfriend's shrimp tacos (YUM!) and the garlic fries were perfect. Second time was in their normal dining for a small dinner on... More

We took our group of ten here and they got us in somehow. The place was packed! Our service was fantastic the whole time and everyone loved the food. We will make sure to get back to this place whenever we stay in Mission Beach.

Friendly staff, reasonable prices, excellent beverages. I could have done without the football coverage but considering the time of year - I understand.

We came here on Christmas night. The food was delicious. Four of us ate off of the special Christmas menu including lobster bisque, salad, prime rib and chocolate lava cake. The other family member ate off the regular menu. Nice location near the beach. Was able to find street parking.

My husband and I just stopped by the night of the Super Moon but we were pleased that we got a seat on the patio. Jokingly I ordered the 'big' Chardonnay and to my surprise, that's what I got (regular price). Thanks!
