Bad service and the owner is Joey very rude 2/11/2012

Bad service, we even talked to the owner Joey and he was rude and very unpleasant. He thinks he better then everyone else. Don't forget your dad made that place for you. If Magie or your mom found out how you act when you drink i'm sure they would be upset. Try not to flirt with the girls so much. And your bartender Scott NO smiles or anything from him he's like a zombie more

Terribly Managed + Bad Beer 7/5/2011

First time at Blue Star about 5 years ago, the food was pretty good. The next two times I went a couple years later, the food was sad. I don't think I'd ever had a great beer there, and I love a good microbrew. Wasn't planning on ever going back, but I had won a free burger party including a round of beers, so why not? Scheduled the party and they told me I was in the books. A friend arrives first and they tell him it has been cancelled. We get there and the manager tells me the same. He told me I tried to have the party months prior but nobody showed up. Another chick had won the same prize and I told him that was probably her party. So he reluctantly verifies it and then reluctantly seats us. They stuck the new server with us and he ended being great and the only good part of the experience. He went to check on what we get and comes to tell us there will be no free beer. So we all buy our own pitchers of blah beer. Then, the server comes back up and says we only get the basic burger with no cheese. So everybody had to pay for their own toppings. The burgers were not fantastic and I was very disappointed with the entire experience, especially how the manager treated us. I emailed the manager who told me I won the party and she has yet to respond. It's a cool building with a lot of potential, if somebody with more brew and restaurant experience owned it, San Antonio would be a happier place. more

Awful 4/21/2011

My fiance and I like to go to microbrews in different cities whenever we travel. We decided to go here because it was within walking distance to our hotel. The beer this brewery makes is the worst beer we have ever had. We have been to breweries all over the US. The service was horrible. I serve and we go out to dinner and rarely ever get bad service. The server was sitting around and was rude. We wanted to buy a beer glass and the server was making up excuses in regards to not getting us one; ie can't find the keys and we don't have any more. There was clearly some on the bar that we could have purchased. My fiance did not want tomatoes on his pizza and the server said that there was no way to take them off. I could see if they were premade pizzas and the tomatoes were finally chopped but that was not the case. There were 4 slices of tomatoes that could have easily been removed before putting the pizza in the oven Also, to top it off, my fiance and I both became ill from the food. more

Unique SA spot 8/1/2010

A Fine Place 2/24/2010

Went here to get away from the tourist area for a while. The atmosphere is laid-back and the server was really friendly and helpful. I had a solid turkey sandwich and a tasty IPA. We ate here before walking around the art complex, which has some really cool shops (unlike some of the stores that pass as ""art"" shops on the riverwalk). And they even allowed me to take a beer to go while we walked around. I suggest taking a short trip here on the trolley if you're staying by the riverwalk and don't want to spend a ton on every meal. Pros: great beer, friendly, cheap, good food more

GREAT BEER! 6/24/2008

I've been visiting this spot for a long time now, great atmosphere & the beer is excellent. The food is pretty good too, but its the brew that keeps me going back. Pros: Great Beer, location & atmosphere. Cons: I wish happy hour was all day! LOL more

has potential, below-average food 12/2/2007

I am really surprised to read such good reviews on this restaurant. We went to Blue Star Brewing company on a Friday night, thinking it would be really fun...being that it's a brewery and a Friday night. That was not the case...we felt as if we were at some family restaurant. The food was less than mediocre (don't get the smoked salmon pizza...no matter how much you like smoked salmon.). The inside of the restaurant itself was pretty cool, however. In addition, the waitress was great. It's disappointing because the place has potential, if only the food was better. Pros: service Cons: food more

You are taking your life into your hands when you eat at the Blue Star Brewing. 11/7/2007

During a recent dinner at the Blue Star I, along with at least four others ,was burned by steam released from the pipes. I was burned from my head down my back. We were treated with indifference by the staff when we informed them what had happened. Followup phone calls also generated rudeness, and a ""don't bother us"" attitude. They refuse to disclose their insurance agent/company. We were lucky that a three year old sitting at the table was out of the line of fire. Cons: Staff had an indifferent attitude. more

Good Beer and Atmosphere 10/19/2006

So, I have been here a few times and I am not totally crazy about anything in particular. The beer is average (brewed there) and the crowd can be a little funky but overall it's different and a cool place to experience if you have never been. more

Food 3/13/2006

Blue Star has one of the best burgers I've ever had in my life...and I've eaten a lot of burgers. more

Good Food and Brew 6/30/2004

In a large warehouse like setting the Blue Star serves excellent food - try the onion rings they are made with ""real"" beer batter and melt in your mouth. The pizza is also very good. The staff were friendly and helpful telling us about where to go in San Antonio. Great value for the money. Pros: Food, Service, Value more

Forget the crowds 8/7/2002

Juicy, well grilled, fresh veggies, delicious fries. And if you come during non-working hours and enjoy a freshly brewed beer: THIS IS THE PLACE. (Forget what the sensationalist masses say, and come where the burger conoisseurs are.) Pros: flavor, quality, freshness Cons: little slow, at end spent signif, too loud @ night more

Outstanding! 6/2/2002

Great place to get a great beer. Especially on the first Friday of the Month!! Pros: Beer, Scene more
