Sunday after Thanksgiving so family traffic was heavy, but the servers were very polite and attentive. The dishes ranged from breakfast, soup and fish tacos. Both micro brewed beer and glasses of wine enjoyed even though slightly expensive. The view of the pacific was nice and the people watching was the show for the day. I chose the Soup of... More

Very nice coctails, and especially fireplace in the evening makes it warm and super cosy just to relax in the evening. Located in Half Moon Bay which is around 30min drive from San Francisco. Lovely for breakfast too.

Always make a point of coming here when we come to HMB. Always bring out dog and sit integration. The seafood appetizer is great as is the rib eye sandwich . Usually await on the weekend, especially if it's sunny.

I had the Kale vegetable soup tonight and it was perfect for my cold along with the hot toddy. If you want fresh and yummy soup go to the Brew.

I'm no beer aficionado, but I love HMB Brew Co (full disclosure - I usually order wine). They have a really good beer menu, and some wine/other cocktails. I also love their food - definitely try the fried artichoke hearts! In addition to the solid menu, it's a beautiful spot with nice views - on a nice evening, you can... More

wedding party was here. You should try the hazelnut porter and the IPA. The most floral IPA I've ever had!

Great setting! Sit outside, even in the cold! They have a great fire and heaters and you can sit and look at the water. The beer is great, but the food is not. Everything is fried. I'd recommend grabbing a drink there, but eating elsewhere.

The views from the deck out front are great! It's a very pretty area. The beer was good and so was the food, but the food was a little pricey for the amount received.

My girlfriend and I were driving down the coast and in need of a break, looking for somewhere to eat. Half Moon Bay Brewing Company caught our eye because of the abundant outdoor seating and the fact that so many people were there. We figured the food must be good to draw that many people. We lucked out and were... More
