This is a casual fun place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good views of the lagoon. Looks like a fun place if you just want a drink and snack. It is not a fancy place.

Couldn't ask for a better location to view the sunsets in South Padre Island, this restaurant stretches far across the pier over water. The services was good. They have a decent happy hour menu. We decided to share everything family style. I don't think the food was super impressive but the view is what most go for

Overprice! shrimp over cooked nothing special at although if you do go there the Mexican Martini is something to order that's really good other than that any of the shrimp plates that we tried were nothing special

We recommend you take your inexpensive fast food and park your car and enjoy the ambience of a public park next time. More

The salad was fresh and the blue cheese as the real thing. My husband and I each ordered shrimp dishes and were very happy with all the dishes. The Diablo Shrimp and the Ponchos shrimp dishes were our favorites. Edwin was our server, he was very nice. The view, atmosphere, cleanliness and other staff all add up to a great... More

We were told by several people that the dolphins can be seen here but we were not so lucky even though one day we came just to try to see them. When we did eat there, it was very rainy and windy and I will tell you that you could feel the pier rocking so be warned. They brought the... More

My family and I came here for breakfast. It was five star awesome. The plates came out looking very nice and very decorated. I thought I was in a fancy restaurant it looked so good. Even better than the food was the view. We will return again and again.

I stopped by Pier 19 for a quick lunch, and was glad I did. It is conveniently located near the South Padre KOA and is situated atop the S Padre end of the old causeway. It is next to a public (honor fee) boat ramp, so well situated for sailors, fishermen, and kayakers. The atmosphere is okay, but the view... More

My wife and I had a few hours after a conference so we headed for the beach...and of course some seafood on the water. Pier 19 just fit the bill. It was pretty busy and all the tables at the back with the best view were taken so we opted for the bar. It turned out to be enjoyable but... More
