We finally tried Pier 19 about 2 years ago after years of coming to the island. I can't believe we waited so long. We are never disappointed. This visit was especially great because our server, Rebecca, was awesome. She is the hands down the best server I've ever had on the island in over 15 years. She was attentive, friendly,... More

Onion rings too big. Fried fish basket was $13.but service was very nice and view was awesome. The restaurant is actually sitting on part of the original bridge. Worth doing it once.

We went here first for drinks and were surprised at the prices. Really cheap and one of the best Bloody Marys ever. Went for dinner later and had great food. The next day as we were "lunching" on Bloody Marys again we were treated to a dolphin display right out the window!

We had dinner here for our anniversary and were very happy with the food and service. We were seated quickly and waited on almost immediately. My husband had a rib eye steak and I had the blackened grouper, both were excellent.

My wife and I have gone to Pier 19 from the original opening. We have always had a good experience while there. Staff has always been very friendly. Management always checks that you have what you want. Food has been very good, and the setting of the restaurant on the old crossing to South Padre is terrific for atmosphere. You... More

The food was ok, service was good and prices were average. But I've had better food on the island. Probably won't visit here again.

He made our experience great! He was Very knowledgeable, personable & attenative! He went to extra lengths by bringing out the actual flounder & red snapper for my husband and I to choose from to ensure it would be enough for us to share. Just great! If he came to my store, I'd hire him in a heartbeat! I can't... More
