Grant place to meet folks for an adult beverage after work. Close walk to nearby restaurants. Pool table in the bar. Can get loud, but not terrible. Good options on brews and spirits.

I have dined here solo while on business 4-5 times. The food is consistently delicious. I've had the ribs, ahi, salads...you name it. Everything is delicious and the service is good. Nice happy hour pricing. My only complaint is the music is far too loud.

Came here for dinner with friends whilst staying at the padre hotel. It's like a nice casual sports bar with a relaxed atmosphere. The food was also very good. You must try the nachos from the starters. Very good indeed.

The Brimstone bar has tv screens across the entire bar and I believe a few others. If bar too full can always buy your drinks and take to your room as tvs in room are great viewing as well. Enjoy your stay.
