Wife wanted oysters rockefeller for our anniversary ever since her recent trip to New Orleans, and the website said Roosevelts had them, but unfortunately the young hostess/waitress couldn't seat us with no options. Not an offer to have a drink and wait or make reservations for the next night-nothing. We went to Trout instead and had incredible service, food, and... More

I took my parents here for dinner for their 25th Anniversary and we had a fabulous meal and experience. The service, food and atmosphere were top notch. We took mostly the chef's recommendations and we were beyond pleased.The next time we are visiting Port Aransas, this will be a must on our dining list.

We had a very special dinner at Roosevelt's last night. It's small so you may want to call for reservations. Our food was delicious! The staff are all friendly and very helpful. Be sure to visit the lobby of the Tarpon Inn to see the signed and dated tarpon scales - quite historical and interesting.

This place was great. My wife and I ate there for our anniversary. The service and food was what you would find and a "big city" fine dining establishment. Menu recommendations were spot on and they threw in a dessert since it was our anniversary. I would absolutely come back here again and highly recommend if you are looking for... More

We dined here in late June 2015 and the meal was very good. I'd highly recommend eating here if you are in Port Aransas and are looking for a good, high quality meal. I'd recommend reservations as the restaurant is small and it fills up quickly. The service was also exceptional.

We've been coming to Port A for years and thought we'd give this a try. SOOOO happy we did! It was one of the best dinners we have EVER had. The appetizer trio was a great start then we had a Red Snapper dish and a Drum dish.....then finished it off with an AMAZING bread pudding. I would highly recommend... More

We called ahead because we had a party of 14. The manager was awesome and found a work-around which would allow us to enjoy their restaurant. It is a small restaurant; I would call ahead for 6 or more if it was me. Anyway, the restaurant called to confirm our group...it helped remind us of the time as well as... More

We took our dear friends out for dinner one evening and happened upon this wonderful restaurant. To our surprise we found that the ambiance, service, and pricing was a perfect fit for everyone at the table. They have a great selection on the menu as well...anything from perfectly prepared seafood to steak. If you are in the Port Aransas area... More
