We really enjoyed our lunch at the Padre Island Brewing Company! We were starving for some good food after staying in Brownsville for the weekend. Glad we gave this place a try!

Great beer good food, the outside balcony is great in the evenings, breezy and cool. The inside can get loud, but we always enjoy the brewing company beer and the food.

Good margaritas for $3 and craft beer is $3 at happy hour. Friendly place. I tried the fried pickles and cheese curds-good but a little greasy ( my husband said I should've expected that since it was fried!) Shrimp was good too.

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
