Shrimp comes fresh off the owners boat. Very relaxing, good drinks, live music, and great view of the bay

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

We had a group of friends who referred us to come for the Open Mic on Sunday. Mark enjoyed playing and singing with Hector Guzman's group - a great time!!! We met the bar manager, Jessica who welcomed my husband and I to return. She took a video of us as we exchanged our wedding vows and rings. One of... More

Outdoor seating right on the water where you can watch the sunset. Sufficient variety of food that ate 2 dinners here and plenty more selections to try. Lots of shrimp on the menu. Entertainment in the main part undercover in the evening. You may want to sit in the lower patio portion to lower the volume and have a better... More

Open air, fun restaurant and bar. Owner sang to us during dinner. Beautiful sunset place! First of all, got a really nice cold Corona delivered with salt on the neck....looked like the sand on the beach! Had Captain Morgan shrimp with a tangy red sauce with a really nice fresh salad and grilled squash. Delicious - will come again!

Very nice view and ambiance. Waiter/waitresses are borderline rude. Adequate menu. Good to great entertainment frequently.

It's fun to sit in this jovial bar/restaurant, with great margaritas, and enjoy the activities in the Laguna Madre. Everything I've tried was good, esp the ceviche. Unfortunately, the owner of the place does not own the parking lot (say what?) so you have to walk over from other lots, but it's worth it.
