This place has good food and is on the water. You have to drive through an RV park to get there but it is worth the find. Always eat here when I come to the island.

Pier 19 is a great place: it has great views, great food, great drinks, and very friendly staff. We had fried shrimp, fried oysters, and fish and it all tasted great.

We went for lunch and had the blackened flounder. It was very good, served with rice and veggies. It was not a huge plate of food, but it was plenty. The rice had a different taste (citrus?). It was all good, and we enjoyed being on the water. We will go back again.

We ate dinner here while on vacation. Nice view of the bay and friendly staff. The food was great, the seafood pasta dish was amazing and had more seafood than noodles! Good portions, lots and lots of seafood (they don't skimp), all well cooked (the scallops melt in your mouth). Definitely recommend.

The atmosphere and location of this place are great. My food - scallops - were badly overdone and rubbery. Others in my party were fine with theirs. I see it in retrospect as a bar-food type place, not a nice seafood venue. But I'd go again with that nuance in mind, and get a fish sandwich, a cold local beer... More

Outstanding as always. Service excellent. Shrimp omelette and Sunday brunch great. Love the weekend brunch musician and the view. We are locals that keep coming back for more. A must do on Padre for breakfast or lunch! Your coffee cup will never be empty -- promise you! Suspended over the water, the view is to die for and the restaurant... More
