We went here for my husbands birthday, the food was great! I was told by another friend to try this place and it was so worth it! I ordered the fried catfish and it was very good! The fish was fresh and fried well, they give you a lot of food. I had to take some home! My hubby ordered... More

We loved the variety of foods offered (since the girls are really not seafood eaters) and I especially enjoyed getting my SHRIMP AND BOILED CRAB LEGS FIX - Duane enjoyed the steak and seafood platter immensely! Their sides are delicious (best cole slaw EVER!) and loaded baked potatoes ! The lemonade was just what the doctor ordered after having traveled... More

The wait was not too long. We loved the calamari here. The service and most of the food was really delicious. The pasta dish my daughter got was not too flavorful, but the other items were good.

I could not have asked for a better waiter. He was kind, helpful, and friendly. The food was excellent! My surf and turf was perfect. I will go back next time.

The restaurant is off the main drag on Padre Island, and as luck would have it, right across the street from our hotel. Stopped there on the chance they had good food. My coworkers ordered blackened fish and I had shrimp. There is a variety on the menu, not just seafood. The food was cooked to perfection, and the portion... More

We are very picky about seafood having lived on the water for years. The blackened Mahi, grilled shrimp and fried shrimp were amazing!!! The sides and land lover entrees were average. Would definitely return for the seafood! Casual atmosphere!

Couldn't wait to have dinner here. Read the good reviews. We both got the stuffed shrimp. It was horrible. My husband eats just about anything but he didn't eat it. Go to Dirty Al's instead. Very reasonable prices and good food.

We arrived on the island and were looking to eat an early dinner. Our first choice didn't open for another two hours so it was on to choice #2. We enjoyed the blackened Mahi Mahi with fresh veggies and the fried shrimp. Dress down or as you wish and enjoy a 4 Star Option
