We had been walking about the downtown area "freezing" and my husband had picked this spot out for dinner (I typically do all the planning so was not sure what to expect). He did great; Great service, everyone was smiling and ready to help. Tyler...More

This is by far one of our favorite spots in Boerne Texas. It is across the street from the The most beautiful spot on the river where there are tons of ducks, hence the name dodging duck… Often you will even see ducks crossing the...More

This seemed to be a popular place. We were seated promptly. They had a good selection of food and brews. I had the "crab burger" and it was good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Best burger I have had in a long time. Visited with my sis who is a vegetarian and she raved about their Beyond Burger - a veggie burger. Not easy to find good and tasty vegetarian options. Friendly service and nice location across from the...More

First the beer is always great! Last visit they kind of fell flat in both server attention and food. Server was indifferent at best and just plain didn’t care at worst, in fact the whole staff seemed to not greet anyone or leave them with...More

Other than the fact they changed the fried fish, it's consistently good. My favorites are the Heart of Boerne salad and their gazpacho.

Relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. We wanted a light dinner and they delivered, Toffee brownie was a good finish though I didn’t really taste the toffee.

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)!
