We ate here twice during our stay. Food is great and staff is very nice. Had fish tacos and they are fabulous. Of course fried pickles. On second trip here, they cooked up some fish we caught! Can't get fresher than that!!! This is a fun place and highly recommend. Oh and get their signature drink.... Parrot Eyes Paralyzer ;)

There are a few restaurants we come to every year during our week in Padre, this is one. The menu is very diverse, but bring in your cleaned fish from your fishing trip and they will cook it for you.

We went there because we heard there were birds at the restaurant. They had two on hand there. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was good but it just didn't live up to all the good things I had heard about it. I am glad I visited but I probably wouldn't go back.

We were allowed to bring our coolers on board. Because of such great experience we decided to try their parasailing. I'd highly recommend trying this. The instructors explained details... More

We were group of 8 people, booked Snorkeling activity with this company. We had worst experience. They took us to a nasty place. Full of sea weeds. Motor boats all over the place that was making the water muddy. We were not able to see anything under water. We did Parasailing thru this company. We had already paid for so... More

We order sandwich and chili cheese fries after jet skiing. Also shared chocolate cake between the four of us. Yummy! Jet skiing was awesome.

Sitting available inside or outside overlooking the bay - you can't beat it! The food is not great but service is good. They offer a variety of water sports departing from their facility.
