I am only writing this review to talk about the atmosphere. I did not eat here but I did walk through the place. When you first walk up to the restaurant there is a strong strong fish odor. Once you get inside, you do not smell it. The lobby area has merchandise that you can buy for yourself, family or... More

We had lunch here on our stay in S. Padre and it was decent, nothing to go back for necessarily. My husband enjoyed his meal which was a special but the portion size of the fish was small considering we were on the water. My meal was ok, but the taco was greasy and falling apart. The view from the... More

Great breakfast, good value, and good service. Highly recommend! They had eggs benedict for the special and it was delicious. They also have great bloody marys.

I am going to say this before I start our waiter was AMAZING I wish I remembered his name but seriously a great waiter! Other than that though wouldn't go back here. We waited 30 minutes and I got a voicemail that said my table was ready and if I didn't claim it they would give it away after 2... More

This place is wonderful. Kinda pricy. The food was great. I had the steak and shrimp, husband has a combo plate and daughter had chicken alfredo. The service was wonderful too.

The seafood was not as fresh as I would have expected; I can get better in Dallas. The ambiance & view made the meal festive & touristy which my teen liked. The wait was expected to be long, but ended up only being on 15-20 minutes.The wait staff was very friendly. The specialty drinks were a bit disappointing. I was... More

Shrimp was good, we got the sampler platter and it was filling for the two of us. Son got a burger and it looked pretty good. It is your average fried and greasy joint. This was our first stop on the island while waiting to check into our hotel. The location was great, never having been on the island before... More

This was supposed to be one of the better restaurants in the area but we were not impressed. I'm not understanding how so many people thought this was good sea food...it was all lacking seasoning that would've made the food so much better. I would suggest the restaurant inside the Hilton Garden Hotel-it was quite enjoyable.

We had breakfast here on the way off the island and it was the highlight of our rainy two-night stay on South Padre. Dinner the night before was the second highlight. I had the most amazing omelet with blackened shrimp, avocado and creamy seafood sauce. There were perfectly cooked home fries and a biscuit to boot! Outside our window were... More
