Seafood right on the Malecon

The seafood is great. We ate upstairs and also enjoyed and cooled off with a pitcher of their homemade lemonade (non-alcoholic.) The shrimp tacos were loaded. View was great.

This worst food ever, the shrimp tastes like cardboard, my gods ordered fryers and they looked like they where spoiled before the where cooked, they where green, my son says they taste like trash. The best part about the visit was leaving.

I have a hard time with one of the previous reviewers who said this is a tourist trap and the food sucks. We have been coming here for years and have taken many friends here. They all want to come back. The margeritas are good made from scratch not mixers. The avocado surprise is everyone's favorite. Two avocados cut in... More

It's a tourist trap. The waiters seem to be ex-cons running from the law that found a job as waiters here. The fish tacos are the worst tacos I've ever had! When any Rubios fast food restaurant can beat your fish tacos then you are in trouble. The fish tacos were made of a grilled tilapia fillet on a tortilla... More

This was the first place we ate on out arrival and it was a great start to our trip. Terrific service, great view right on the water, and delicious food! The shrimp cocktail and fried shrimp are especially good.

Call it ritual, a prayer for good luck, or just a great place to stop - Mary's is the place for your first stop in Old Port. Located upstairs and sort of easy to pass by..DON'T! We have stopped by Mary's for more then ten years. Always the first stop when we get to Rocky Point. The service is fast.... More

They supplanted, in my opinion, the well known Flavio seafood restaurant next door (which I patronized fro many years) as the best marisco restaurant in Penasco. Particularly good dishes are the Shrimp cocktail and breaded fish (flounder) filet. Margaritas are some of the best you can find in town and their freshly made lemonades are to die for. I didn't...

The shrimp tacos, setting you back about $2.00 are great and their Avocado surprise... The surprise is that it is 4 avocado halfway Nd loaded with shrimp and a coleslaw mix. Great margaritas!
