Went here for lunch twice while we were visiting the area. The lunch specials were great tasting, and at 8 dollars you cant beat the quality. Both times the food was amazing. The service with Josie was fantastic, and Scott was equally polite the second time. My husband and I will be back the next time we visit the island... More

My family and I had a great lunch at this great place. I personally loved my Steak. My wife and mother and law enjoyed their meals as well. Our waitress Josie was great, very attentive. Will be more than happy to return.

Great service and excellent food (appetizers/main course/dessert is to die for). Shannyn greets you with a smile while finding a table that will suit your need and making it memorable. Mercedes Tully (Assistant Manager) or Paul Tully are available and attentive to everyone's needs bringing hospitality with great customer service during your memorable experience. Come by and see for yourself.

If you are looking for a nice change from the traditional So Padre faire then check out Marcello's. Paul and Mercedes are great family people that know how to treat YOUR family right. Bring your catch! Great folks and a great restaurant.

My husband and I were visiting South Padre Island for the weekend, we came across this place crossing the bridge into Port Isabel (cute little town). The food was amazing!!! My husband and I both had the lunch special. Our waitress Joise was great and very helpful. The atmosphere was so lovely. Cannot wait till we return.

My husband and I cannot begin to sing the praises of this restaurant! It was our first truly romantic meal for our honeymoon. The service was out of this world....there was no detail missed! The food surpassed all of our expectations, especially the shrimp bisque. Merecedes made sure that our meal was unforgettable. We highly recommend this establishment to anyone... More
