The weather was great conditions for eating out on their spacious patio which has table umbrellas. I had the special stuffed jalapeno appetizer, shrimp plate and a frozen margarita. The shrimp was cooked perfectly and enough fries for three people. It's been a long time since I have seen hush puppies on a menu so of course I enjoyed these... More

We were lucky to not have to wait, our food was good and plentiful and the atmosphere was great for kids but not cheesy.

We have been a few times. Great good and service each time. Need a few more non-seafood items for wife but she loved the Big Kahuna veggie sandwich. Our favorite restaurant on the island.

Food not the best but the service was good, also the soft drinks and water tasted good (the only place on the island that I have found with good soft drinks). Price was normal for the island. Probably would not go back.

I have no complaints about this place. This was the first place we ate upon arrival at South Padre and everything was perfect. Nice staff, fresh food, great drinks, comfortable seating. The price for one appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 alcoholic beverages came out to 55 bucks.

Had dinner here with my family. As always, service was exceptional, food was amazing and beer was extremely cold. We had the three amigos and raw oysters for appetizers and they were awesome. I highly recommend the Alaskan King Crab legs they are served with a baked potato and veggies. Excellent!
