Jerry is the best bartender we had in South Padre! People were friendly which does not seem common at bars around here. Nachos were delicious.

The food is very good and at a value. The restaurant sits on the pier so there are nice bay views from every seat. You can dock your boat for an afternoon break from fishing which is quite nice. The service is very good. There is a good reason I keep going back. You don't have to wait long for... More

Thought the pier would be great to eat on but the food was not very good. Batter on fish was not as good as other places in town. Will not go back.

Good service and a good attitude from the staff. The food was okay but what stood out was the Mexican style seafood soup. It was excellent. Nice location but the cannon is scary especially if one does not know it's there. All in all we would probably return.

I read about Pier 19 and this year in Padre we found it. To walk on the pier is free and we had a good time looking for dolphins. Saw none but git to watch the pirate ship show. The food was very good and readonably priced. Our waitress was excellent. A must stop on Padre Island.

We went for breakfast but only stayed for coffee because it was freezing in there. Another couple came in with coats. My food would of gotten cold because of how cold it was.

We ate here for lunch as a recommendation from a local. The food was so good. The atmosphere was fun. We ate on the enclosed pier. Our waiter was so nice and gave us tremendous service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.
