Parking is capacious just off the main road that runs parallel to Highway... More

We first went to the Shell Beach Brewhouse because it was on a list of recommended happy hours at our hotel. It was great! There weren't a lot of people there so it was easy to get a table for 5.

Stopped here for Lunch and a beer and was very pleased with our experience. Appetizers were fantastic, and many choices of beer to choose from.

I love Shell Beach Brewhouse. I have been several times and enjoyed each time I go. The food is great, and it is especially nice to sit outside on the street side patio. It is a nice cozy area to watch the day set and if you get cold - there is the long fire pit to keep you warm.... More

I ordered Snapper & Chips, and it turned out DELICIOUS!! Service was excellent - very friendly & attentive. They are generous with their pours! And, very reasonably priced.

We were happy to see lots of healthy options on the menu. The beet salad was large and we shared it. Really good! We shared a sandwich too and along with the typical choices of fries or chips was VOTD - Vegetable of the Day. Today it was fresh asparagus. You don't see that every day!

I ate here twice. Once I got it for take out, and once I ate at the location. Service was good, staff was friendly, food was a little pricey but SO good and worth it.

I recently went here and got their version of a French dip. I don't remember what they called it but it was the best one I have ever had! Definitely on point with the food and service! Try the mango beer, it sounds weird but definitely was good as well.
