Excellent!

We had a memorable meal at Roosevelt's for our 27th anniversary. Don't miss! We chose the beef tenderloin and weren't disappointed. Also, don't pass on the key lime pie. Scrumptuous!

Dined there Friday May 5/8. The food was first rate as usual. Service very good as reflected in the tip. Hostess spoke limited English and insisted we sit at a specific table regardless of our request for another. We were the only diners at the time. Left a "bad taste"

We ordered WAY too much food because everything on the menu looked great. Service was a little slow but we were a rowdy bunch and they put up with us.

We have been in Port Aransas for several days during SandFest and have enjoyed some great dinners at the local restaurants, but we purposely saved the best for our last night here. We enjoyed a great dinner at Roosevelt's last year while we were here, and we were really looking forward to going back. We certainly weren't disappointed. This little... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday here! Very small, quaint atmosphere with excellent food. We had the flounder and tenderloin. Both were outstanding! A little pricey but well worth the money.

My husband and I got married in Port Aransas and wanted a "fancy" dinner one night of our honeymoon there so we chose this place. I made a reservation for 8:30, thinking that would be late enough to have most of the place to ourselves. Unfortunately this was not the case, which was alright, however we were sat right by...

I had the Grilled Oysters Rockafeller which were scrumptious and not your boring traditional recipe. For the entree I had the special "Stuffed Flounder" and this was also very scrumptious and the presentation was appealing. This chef knows his spices and flavors to create such masterpieces Our waitress was very attentive in helping me select my white wine to pair... More

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 about our meal. This place has... More
