Beautiful Location for bar food. I've always enjoyed a trip to Fisherman's Village and the place has grown in popularity over the years. We went this past Saturday (6/19/21) and decided to grab a bite to eat before we wondered through the shops. We found a couple of bar stools outside at the Village Brewhouse and were able to order a couple of adult beverages while we enjoyed the view and the breeze. We had Gator bites and nachos which were very standard for sports bar appetizers. My only issue was our bartender Dane- he seemed like he so unhappy and put off to be waiting on people. His service was terrible- thank goodness a very sweet young girl (with very long brown hair; wish I could remember her name) started her shift at the bar. She was happy, friendly, and attentive. We closed out our tab with her and tipped based on how kind she was. Dane needs a little attitude adjustment. Even if another customer had upset his day; he didn't need to take it out on the rest of the patrons enjoying a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
Visited the brewhouse while on vacation. The location is excellent, in a shopping center and on the water. The beer selection was very good with a great variety on tap. The menu had a good selection of food. We started with the gator bites as an appetizer and were very pleased. The dipping sauce was flavorful and mixed well with the fried bites. For our meal we chose burgers and fries. The burgers were good, what you would expect from a bar/restaurant. Overall, the food was good along with drinks. The location was great and eating on the deck with a view is what this place is all about. The greatest disappointment was our server, Ashley R. She was not friendly and bordered on being rude. She was slow and other staff eventually brought our food and drinks to the table. I got the impression that she just didn't want to be there and wanted everyone to know about it. We visited on 6/14/21 during lunch. Overall, food and drinks were good, service was terrible on a very slow day.
Great food and good views!! Tried Alligator bites for the first time and they were good. Julianna was a very attentive waitress and did an awesome job. It was very busy. Teenage boys loved it, will be back!
I’ve been there three times in the last six months and I wish I would’ve stopped after the first visit, that one was great. The second visit didn’t go well, service was slow and food was barely warm.I had to pry the rice off of my plate. I figured maybe they were having an off night and we would try again another day. Ha, wrong! Third visit- service was slower. We agreed to wait 45 minutes for a table, but it was odd that I saw a few empty tables, one of which was directly behind the hostess stand. 20 minutes later our table was ready and it was the one right behind their stand. I got to hear all kinds of things from their little group while sitting there, hopefully my 8 year old wasn’t paying attention. It took about 10 minutes to put in a drink order and we wanted an appetizer, but she didn’t give us a chance to order it. When she came back with the drinks 10 minutes later two were missing. After about 15 minutes we got the last two drinks and were able to order our dinner. 35 minutes later our food comes, except for one. We waited and waited, then the waitress comes over and asks what did you order? We got the rest of our food 15 minutes later without any apology or anything. I eventually got silverware, but my husband went up to the bar to get it because it was taking longer than expected to get some from our waitress, by that point my toast was soggy. When she did come with some she dropped some on the floor by the next table, looked at it and walked away. A customer ended up picking them up. I was so pleased after the first visit and the last two visits really just ruined it for me, I doubt we’ll go back.
Burger was delicious and so was the ground beef queso dip with fresh warm tortilla chips. Beautiful view. The guy playing the steel drum was awesome too. Definitely a place you should visit.
