I've been here several times now and I have not had anything but really good food. Their hamburgers are really fresh, their seasoned fries are crisp and we had to order more onion rings because they were so good. I also tried the chicken fried steak special one day and it was very good and was paired with the standard... More

We went here for a large family gathering the night before a family member's wedding. Even with our very large group, the service was very good. The food was good, but nothing special. I had the bacon Swiss burger and my husband had the blue chicken sandwich. My biggest complaint is that it was miserably hot in the restaurant. Not... More

We drove through Rockport to do a little scouting for lodging for our next weekend trip, and stopped in here to grab some lunch. The food was pretty good. Nothing special, but good. The staff was very friendly & attentive. During the day, it was very family friendly (I'm not sure about night since it's possibly more of a bar... More

Hamburger and fries were very good. Beer was cold and service was fine. It's a sports bar with eight TVs in view. Only negative is that smoking is allowed at the bar itself and there is no barrier to the restaurant area so the smell drifts everywhere. If you are a non-smoker that can be a little bit bothersome. Otherwise,... More

Had the patty melt. It was average. Too smoky to enjoy the food. The view is nice. More of a sports bar than a grill.

Very friendly and attentive staff. Bar food is bar food and it fills the bill. Hamburger taco is different and very delicious.. I wish they had beer on tap but their prices are good. Enough TVs so you can get whatever game you want.

Great service, Good food, wonderful views of the water. Super deals on drink specials during "Happy Hour", kinda strange to be able to smoke a cigarette in an eatery. Loved the decor.

We went here for a quick bite right when we got into town for the Labor Day weekend. We ate there and got some things to go for people at our house. The food is very basic and fine. You do not come here expecting five star dining and we know that. Everything was prepared as asked and came out... More

This place is named incorrectly because no poor man could afford to eat here. Yesterday my husband and I ordered 2 shrimp baskets and an order of fried pickles. We each had 2 beers. With tip the bill was $60.00 !! Get real people. $60!! Yes the shrimp was good-fresh caught and in house breaded, not pre-frozen but really. The... More

It was our first time visiting Rockport, Tx and our first time coming to this restaurant. I was disappointed by the service. The person who took our order was not welcoming or friendly (never smiled). I felt like we were a bother. The place is very smoky so we asked if we could sit outside and they informed us that...
