Cold Beer and Basic Fried Seafood

Just your basic cold beer and fried seafood. I liked the shrimp and the oyster basket. Fairly cheap at 11.99 each.

We stay at The Beach Lodge once or twice a year and we always have at least one meal on site. The food is not the BEST on the island, but it's good food and a great location. Breakfast is my favorite meal here. Pancake, omelettes, whatever, I have always had great breakfast food. Lunch and dinner, I usually get... More

Enjoyed breakfast with a view of the beach. Lots of character and good service. My wife loved the pancake, you can only eat one they are so large. We will be back.

Love this place! Very very casual, on the beach, good hamburger and fries. My friend liked her fish sandwich. Onion rings looked delicious. View the dunes, sand, surf, birds, and sunflowers growing off the deck. Nice staff. View and location for vacationers on the beach can not be beat.

With a breathtaking ocean view from the patio, great burgers and real gulf gumbo, this place is fun. In operation since 1969, it is old school. Lots of posters Kinky Friedman.

A spot that has to be seen. I agree that it is best to keep it very simple here. It is a unique spot to visit directly from the beach. Shrimp po boys and burgers are ok. The view of the beach is the draw for us!

In Port Aransas, there aren't many place to eat on the beach.. in fact.. I think there is only ONE.. Beach Lodge Restaurant. Had breakfast there this morning and the portions were HUGE.. My daughter ordered two pancakes and the waitress said that she only needed one. She was right! As large as the plate. Great reasonably priced food with... More

Okay; this is an on-the-beach place for a beer and burger. Honestly, to say the food is bad is a big complement. The food may well be the worst in Port A. Seafood is all frozen and the crinkle cut fries taste like Crisco. Hush puppies were like the fried oysters; hard as rocks. Everything was waaaay overdone. Service was... More
