High end restaurant in a South Texas beach town. I had never even heard of Roosevelt's until invited by friends. All of our meals were prepared perfectly. I would definitely try to make a reservation. Can't wait for our next visit

By far the best restaurant in Port A hands down! The balsamic bread is a MUST! The special was spectacular!! A little pricy - but worth it!

Our family had dinner on a week day evening during a beach outing. Small quaint restaurant tucked in back of the Tarpon Inn. Excellent selection of fresh fish entrees as well as some beef and chicken dishes as well. Service was excellent food was scrumptious. They have a different chefs specialty dish each day.

This was our second time at Roosevelt's and it was just as good as the first. The fish are off-the-boat fresh and perfectly prepared. Our appetizers were excellent and dessert was wonderful. We will return next time we are in Port A.

After two visits, we believe Roosevelt's is the best dining experience in Port Aransas. The restaurant is relatively small and popular, so reservations are a must. We ate the fresh fish special, the seafood pasta, the crab-cakes and all were very nicely prepared and delicious. The key lime pie is a must try! Their wine list is quite extensive and... More

My husband and I went there for dinner and did not have a reservation. The staff was so friendly and found a spot for us in no time. The food was top notch and the wine selection beautiful! We are planning our next dinner already!!

We've been to this restaurant at least a couple of times every yet for the last 4-5 years....they continue to amaze. The Warm Spinach Salad, Quail Tails, Flounder stuffed with lobster, Shrimp and Beef Tourenado were all fantastic. The Key Lime Pie is to die for!! I've had their lamb before and that's absolutely fantastic too. We will definitely be... More
