Good place to stop in for lunch. My burger was filling and fresh, the restaurant was inviting, and the service was on point. Right a cross from a duck pond too lol hence the name.

We stopped in shortly after noon and were mildly surprised we didn't have to wait for a table as they appeared quite busy. After perusing the menu, we selected fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. They were breaded perfectly and delivered to our table by...More

Excellent food, beer, and ambiance. Is this the best place to eat in Boerne? Don't know, it's the only place we've been to. I know there are several other supposedly good restaurants in town, but they were closed, so we ate here. Excellent choice! We...More

The atmospheric outdoor garden restaurant across the road from the river where the ducks live, lives up to its name as you need to dodge the ducks crossing the road! There is a country feel with fresh kitchen fare and the small local brewery behind....More

Our hotel recommended the Dodging Duck—and it was spot on. First of all, driving over to the restaurant, we discovered the reason for the name. Ducks and geese were crossing River Road going from the creek to an open lot. The cars had to dodge...More

Stopped in here for lunch and was not disappointed. The beer selection was good and the food excellent. We had the pretzel and the meat and cheese. We also split the cobb salad,

I've been enjoying the good food and drinks for years at Dodging Duck Brewhaus. The name is very appropriate because there really are ducks coming from across the street on the River Road Park. It a fun place to enjoy the Hill Country setting.

The Dodging Duck Brewhaus is located in Boerne, Texas, in the Texas Hill Country. We have an eclectic menu of international and local favorites, from Thai Lettuce Wraps to Chimichurri Grilled Beef Tenderloin to Bratwurst & Sauerkraut. Best of all, we brew great beer! We've already won three gold and three silver medals at the World Beer Championships! Enjoy the ambience as well! Sit on our covered deck and watch the ducks play on the century-and-a-half old mill pond of Cibolo Creek, have an intimate dining experience in one of our lakehouse-style dining rooms, or sit at the wraparound bar and talk beer with the brewmaster (or talk Boerne with the locals)!
