Had dinner there the other night - what a mistake. The house shrimp special was too spicy, as in buffalo wing spicy. Then piled on top of some Minute Rice. My husband had the shrimp combo with grilled zucchini. The breaded shrimp was not cooked throughout. The plates came to us with half of my order on his plate and... More

Ordered shrimp cocktail veracruz and fish & chips with shrimp. It was enough food for two people. Loved sitting outside in picnic tables on their dock. There was a live band that was good. Although we arrived very late, the staff was nice and courteous.

I was most disappointed with this restaurant of all the ones we visited in SPI. Service was terrible. We didn't even know who our server was until about 15/20 minutes in. The busser took our drink orders from us and then they took a long time to get to us. The food was disappointing. My boyfriend got the shrimp dish... More

the food was great, although I'm not sure any of us got what we ordered. This place is wonderful to watch the fireworks on Friday or Saturday night. I ordered a melon daiquiri and they put salt on the rim (YUK!). No Bueno! Had to send it back. I don't even know what they put in it but it was... More

Haven't been to South Padre in awhile and this time came with two kids. Tried Louie's-was horrible! This place was very inviting and even had high chairs for our two little ones. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was relaxing. The food was the best you can get on the water for the price on that side of... More

We came here a couple of years ago.. We come here for the view of the bay and great service. We came here on two separate occasions. The first time we visited our server was Lorena. She was subpar not very personable. We ordered the Ceviche and it was great. We gave her a $10 tip for a $24 bill!... More

We had lunch here a couple of weeks ago. Like Louie's down the street, Palm Street Piers offers food, music and a nice view on the bayside of South Padre Island. Though not as large as Louie's, the food was pretty good. It's a great place to sit and relax either for lunch or for having a cold beer, watching... More
