“Our weekend go to place”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We live 6 miles away by air... closer to 10 by road... this is our place for lunch on a Sunday... with the dog...

This is a brew pub with great food... starting with being a brew pub... adding in the coastal influence (try the Portuguese Fish stew...) With outdoor seating, very dog friendly... (the big black long hair Sheppard under our table is named Emma...)

I alternate between the burger and the fish and chips... I find the smokes stuff a bit heavy handed... This is my biggest complaint... and I still have the smoked stuff... My big complaint is really minor...

We go, sit outside, watch the water... the bay... always enjoy...

I am a beer guy, but the wine list is good (the wife likes wine... )

They bring water for Emma (the dog)

We go about every other week... It is "our" place... you are welcome to join us...

“Great view and that is it”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

I always end up here is my friends insist on it. The view is great, I like the beer, but the food is pretty mediocre.

“Absolutely excellent!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We LOVED the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, and we were grateful for their doggie-friendly patio. Loved the Lemon Drop drink, Pumpkin Bisque, and Portuguese Fish Stew.

Very nice evening!

“wine connoisseurs take note!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We are so glad a local had taken us here. They have a wide range of wines for tasting, both local and international wines AND they also had some cheeses to taste. Bonus!

“Great beer, food and patio dining”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Three of us had lunch here following the Pumpkin Festival. We had a bit of a wait but we went to the bar and got beers in plastic cups that we brought out to the outdoor patio waiting area.
The prawns and chips were very good as well as the battered artichokes. The Mavericks IPA was great as well as the wheat. Very casual and friendly place!!
