Half Moon Bay Brewing Company -- Half Moon Bay, CA

Half Moon Bay Louie with bay shrimp and crab. This full portion went for $10.75

Last weekend we went to Half Moon Bay to meet Jenny's brother and his family. Afterwards, we went to the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. Though we got there a bit before six, the restaurant was packed and their parking lot full. Be sure to make a reservation, even if on a Sunday night.

One other piece of advice: If you have kids with you, get the fish and chips off the kids' menu. You won't believe the deal: Six dollars buys you the same fish and chips as on the adult's menu which goes for $15.75. The ONLY difference between the two is the kids' dish comes with two pieces of fish while the adult version comes with three. The "fish" in the fish and chips is pollock.

Jenny had the seafood fajitas, which came loaded with shrimp and fish--far more than needed to fill the tortillas.

I had the Dungeness crab roll. There was plenty of delicious crab and the bread super-soft. I'm just not used to paying $22 for a sandwich.

About a month earlier, we ate a delicious brunch at Flavor. Half Moon Bay Brewing Company serves up equally good food and is a little noisier but perhaps a bit more cheerful, too. You won't go wrong with either restaurant.
