Excellent Bloody Mary

Reasonably priced food & drinks. The Bloody Mary comes with a skewer full of tasty treats. The calamari appetizer was more than enough for two. Great view. Efficient service.

First time here and my goodness, I am coming back with my husband and kids. I ordered a regular, normal hamburger and it was delicious, juicy and big. Customer service was good and the restaurant has an awesome view of the gulf of Mexico. No complaints at all.

My friends & I are from the Austin-San Antonio area and took a small vacation to South Padre Island for a few days! We were staying at the KOA and decided to try out Pier 19 since it was right where we were staying! They have really great food at a really reasonable price! I want to give a shout... More

We went to pier 19 several times during our stay on padre. It was great every time but Friday lunch was amazing. We happened to go last year on a Friday and the special was a seafood enchilada. They still had same special and I had it again. It is one of the best things ever! My daughter has severe... More

Driving through the KOA to reach Pier 19 was a little concerning. However glad we continued on our way. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. I ordered the fish and shrimp basket which I enjoyed every bite. The portions were large, enough for two. The prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend as I will go back... More

My grandparents brought us here and it's right in the water do you can watch the pelicans fly over top. We got the absolute best ceviche dip for an appetizer and the burgers ate big and juicy.

We travel the gulf coast from Florida to the tip of Texas and go down to SPI at least once or twice a year. We have settled in our favorite restaurants at SPI - Gabriellas, Daddy's and Pier 19. Gabriella's and Daddy's are still good but for full island flavor - from the friendly staff to the varied and delicious... More
