Ok, I have to admit I was a little skeptical that this quality of restaurant was in Port A. But now I' m a believer. This quaint restaurant on the Tarpon Inn property is quite a find. The chef prepares the food in the kitchen right there in front of you and the food comes out freshly made for your... More

My husband and I had just about given up on Port Aransas dining, so, we thought we would try Roosevelt's. I had the flounder pappillote which was the evenings special. Flounder stuffed with crabmeat over a pasta with crab and a Lobster sauce. It was the best fish meal ever, and it will become the stick by which all flounder... More

This is the premier restaurant in Port A. It IS NOT CHEAP. It is one of the finest restaurants you will ever patronize. They only have a few tables, so make your reservation early. The menue changes daily. It doesn't matter what you order; it will be magnificent. This is a place for special occassions. Bring your wallet and appetite.....you... More

Reservations suggested, well worth it. This was a splurge for us. We both loved every bite. The atmosphere is lovely.

We decided to try this restaurant at the last minute and are so glad we did. We'd seen the Tarpon Inn go through many changes since the '60's, it looks nice now and we'd read great reveiws of Roosevelt's. We didn't have reservations but were seated immediately. Its very small but quaint and the waitress was friendly and not intrusive.... More

After getting denied a table at Lisabella's because they were too booked, we went to Roosevelt's. Roosevelt's was also very booked, but asked if we were OK with sitting outside. We got two adjacent tables outside next to a neatly cut grassy area and lights running in the trees. This was perfect for three young kids to run around and... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Roosevelt's. Our food was wonderful and our server, Wendy was terrific; taking photos on multiple cameras, patiently checking to make sure we liked the pictures all while advising on the menu. My daughter loved the coconut shrimp. My husband enjoyed the Grouper, the chicken involtini was devine but mine was the best, sauted red... More
