Restaurant Review: Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
One place that I like to eat when in the Bay Area is the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. They have both indoor and outdoor seating and frequently feature music. The food is good and they have a varied menu. The Brewing Company is quite popular in the area and can get very crowded at night and on the weekends. Reservations can be made through OpenTable if you are planning to go during the busy times.
On this visit to the Bay Area my first stop was lunch at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. I had a hard time deciding what to get for lunch as there are so many good options. I got the grilled fish tacos (sorry, I was a slacker this time and took no food pictures.) The fish tacos were served with soft corn tortillas; they were the “do it yourself” assembly kind. The fish was quite good, as was the rice that came with the dish. However, the plate was served with too much lettuce. The dish also came with a cup of black beans…which were the most flavorless black beans I’ve ever had; after two bites, I pushed the cup away from me. The BF got the Albacore tuna melt, served on ciabatta bread with apples (he got it without the apples). I tried the tuna melt (he’d had it before) and it was good. The sandwich also came with french fries; the fries are always very good at the Brewing Co.
I would definitely recommend the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company for a leisurely afternoon lunch. If it's a warm day, you can sit outside and enjoy the view of the ocean. If you want to spend a lively evening, then definitely head for the Brewing Company.
