We joined friends from back home in Minnesota. The food was excellent and plenty of it. Great atmosphere complete with the sighting of dolphins.

This is not only a great place place to dine but how many places can you dine over the water, watch pelicans and sea gulls dive foe fish but watch dolphin swim and feed just outside your window. Want a awesome cocktail my choice the bloody mary it's like getting a drink and an appetizer the best i've ever had

Great food and drinks all around. Best part was watching the dolphins and other wild life while the sun set. I will visit this place again.

Pier 19 has the Best of Everything. Luis was informative, respectful, and a shining star at Pier 19. Their manager was superb and made every customer feel welcomed and appreciated. Make your next dining date at Pier 19. It has a delightful setting, food, and service. You won't be disappointed.

Three of the four meals we ordered were outstanding. The seafood enchiladas left a lot to be desired. The filling contained too much rice and not enough seafood. Grouper and found were both good as was the coconut shrimp. We had crab cakes for a starter and they were outstanding. Will return. Happy hour drinks are a nice extra.

Ate dinner here last week. Upon arrival they said it'd be a 20 minute wait. no problem. to our delight it was a 3 minute wait instead. Beautiful place at sundown. Order the shrimp on special which was very good. Had to try to bloody mary which was good also. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting South Padre.

The location is great, right out on the water (bay side). The service is fast and friendly, but you never feel rushed. The menu is well rounded, prices are fair, serving sizes are perfect, often can take 1/2 home. They have daily specials for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The drinks are super! This is my favorite, not-fast-food place to eat.... More

It was a unique place to eat and the service was good but the food was average at best. The blackened shrimp were good but the guacamole didn't have much flavor. The rest of our meal we found to be mediocre, again lacking in flavor.
