Part of the summertime fun is discovering some of the great brew houses, restaurants and bars in the nearby cozy town of Brunswick, GA. If an Oktoberfest celebration is in your future, raise your hand to become your crew’s DD (Designated Driver), and chauffeur with S&L (Style and Luxury) inside an award-winning 2017 Honda Accord from our First Coast Honda Dealers. There’s plenty of room for a handful of your friends and family members aboard this comfortable cruiser, so make plans to head into Brunswick this October for fine food, suds and signature cocktails.

Now that you’ve got the perfect Honda for the ride into town, where are the best spots for tipping glasses, sipping and dining on some unique flavors with the whole gang?


You don’t need to venture too far off the beaten path to find Toucans Ale House, which is known to have “Great Food and Beer with a Whole Lot of Fun!” If craft brews or Oktoberfest beer is what you’re searching for, you’ll find over 75 varieties to sample at this local watering hole. The restaurant recently installed a brand-new, state-of-the-art draft system, so delivery of your suds will be at its finest and coldest. 

Enjoy the pints and signature cocktails outside on their patio where your favorite four-legged friends are welcome to join you (on a leash). Live entertainment is also available from Thursday through Sunday. Dine on fresh Georgia Wild Shrimp or choose from traditional pub favorites like chicken wings, burgers, fries, salads and more. 


With a touch of the Irish, this family-owned chain of sports-orientated restaurants and pubs first sprouted up in Brandon, Florida back in 1985. Initial proprietor Jim Mellody and his wife branded their first beefy hotspot with the Brady family name, and it was an instant hit with the locals. Now? The branch in Brunswick even has its own loyal following of “Beefthusiasts.”

Better known for their signature cocktails rather than beers or brews, the O’Brady’s bar offers a number of specialty beverages, including a Jamaican Storm, Moonshine Punch, Strawberry Plunge, Pineapple Express, Up The Creek, and an Oh My Mai Tai concoction. You’ll find plenty to please your palate and wet your whistle at this local O’Brady establishment. 


Being so near the shore, there’s no reason we shouldn’t enjoy the freshest Atlantic seafood. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Marshside Grill. Since we’re also in the South, Marshside offers some authentic Southern cuisine, including daily specials like country fried steak and chicken and pork chops. Don’t forget to add on those sultry sides from down South like black-eyed peas, dirty rice, and mashed potatoes. Talk about Southern Comfort!

To celebrate Oktoberfest, don’t forget to stop by the bar for a special Budweiser Bucket, and feel free to catch live music on the weekends. For some country flair with a beautiful ocean view, make sure the Marshside Grill is on your to-do list for dining, dancing, and libations. 


Owner and “social specialist” Susan Bates proclaims that she has brought “the best of all things delicious” to the historic downtown Brunswick area. Open seven days a week, Tipsy McSway’s proudly offers a full-service bar in an eclectic yet family-friendly environment. They proudly feature fresh pretzels with homemade mustard that comes straight from the garden—perfect for an Oktoberfest snack.

If you want to cross into another realm where hip meets healthy and family coexists with the fresh and funky, be sure to stop by Tipsy McSway’s for a truly memorable Oktoberfest that’s appropriate for all ages.
