We received excellent service from the start. The craft beer was worth tasting and afterwards we bought some to take home. We enjoyed a very tasty meal and again the service was outstanding. Well done to our hosts!

We were taken to this restaurant by relatives living in Port Alfred, who recommended the fish and chips. Well, it was so good that we went back there twice more! Perhaps it's because we're starved for fish, coming from a Karoo farm where mutton is...More

This is a very friendly restaurant and the staff are eager to please! More importantly the food is well prepared by Braam himself. They serve great locally grafted beer which is worthwhile a taste.

I'm not well versed on gluten-free but from what I remember there isn't anything like that on the menu. Also I'm not sure if they would prepare something different for you because when I asked for the alcohol to be omitted... More

The "Wharf Street Brew Pub" is situated on the historic Wharf Street in Port Alfred. It is housed in the oldest commercial building in Port Alfred completed in 1853. The decor is simple with pictures of old Port Alfred being the focal pointWe have micro Brewery attached to us and sell three of our own beers. Our food is a selection of Pub Style food like fish and chips, schnitzels and burgers ranging to freshly caught line fish, in house matured steaks and a host of other things in between. We pride our selves on good food and service so please pop in if only to sample our local brew, you might well end up staying for a bite to eat as many do after seeing our menu.
