Mom's birthday

Our family met up for our mom's 80th birthday and took our parents to dinner. You need a reservation in advance bc it's small. We had appetizers, entrees, and desserts. The food is really, really good. I had the filet shrimp tower over mushroom risotto. It was delicious. The chef came out and asked... read more

We organized a dinner among friends who were all visiting Port A on a Friday night. The hostess could not have been more accommodating. There were seven of us and we received excellent service and the food was top notch. We had so much fun and this was truly one of the highlights of our visit to Port Aransas. This... More

We made reservations 361-749-1540 approximately 3 weeks in advance. It was for 7 at 8 pm. We were seated promptly and politely. All of us, ranging in ages from 22-50 were thoroughly impressed with not just the taste of the food but the presentation was spectacular. We started with coconut shrimp and a baguette with balsamic vinegar, and a wedge... More

The food and service was top notch. The proprietor was very accommodating and went out of his way to fit my family in on a busy Sunday night without a reservation when he could have easily turned us away, (I had incorrectly seen on the Internet some place that reservations weren't accepted). Our children's meals were better than adult selections... More

We spent the weekend in Port Aransas celebrating our 51 anniversary. As soon as we arrived, we made reservations at this highly-recommended restaurant for Friday night. We were not disappointed at all! Our meals were delicious and the waitstaff were attentive and friendly. Roosevelt's is definitely one of the best!

Stopped for lunch. Great service,cold beer. Foodwashot and services was fast. Had the hamburger with bacon and pineapple on it. It was huge and very good. Would suggest it for anyone. Prices was a little high but not bad. Will go again and try something different. Give them a try.

The history of the building attracted us initially but we have been back frequently because of the excellent food. This is fine dining, not your usual tourist town fried seafood. Excellent wine list. great staff.

Great seafood. A nice place to go for the evening after you've taken off the Swimsuit and sand. Shorts are fine as long as they are on the kids. The seafood is as fresh as you would expect in a seaside venue. Very nicely appointed and good service when I've been there. I had a shrimp dish. It was perfectly... More

Dinner at Roosevelt's was nostalgic for us because the restaurant is located in the original space occupied by legendary Beulah's, the site of some of our most wonderfully memorable meals in the long past. The place looked the same; the service was just as gracious and attentive as in years past; the presentations were even more beautiful than in the... More

We have been coming to Roosevelts since it opened five years ago and we have never been disappointed. The food and service are consistently outstanding! We started of with the Warm Spinach salad which is always great. The ladies ordered the Coconut Shrimp and savored every bite. My friend had the tenderloin which he could not stop talking about. I...
