Casual, large portions, reasonable prices, decent food

This restaurant is part of Schlitterbaun water park but has a separate entrance so you don't need to go to the park to visit. It is very casual. Outdoor seating overlooks the water park on the 2nd level so would probably be interesting at lunch to people-watch. At dinner time it was all quiet... read more

My husband and I tried to eat here on Aug 17. We were there at around 3, there were only a few other tables. We were seated by a nice hostess and then completely ignored. After studying the menu a few minutes, we began to look around for a waitress. It was hot outside and we were in desperate need... More

The roof was leaking water and the ceiling looked like it had black mold. Ordered a pina colada and returned it twice because of a very nasty after taste

We have been coming to SPI for years and never knew about this restaurant. Some family members from the Rio Grande Valley suggested it for us. I would have thought this place was from people at the water park, but it is an actual restaurant. It is far from fancy inside, but you can't come in wearing bathing suits or... More

Food was AMAZING!! We ordered grilled Shrimp, a cheeseburger, and the fried fish. All entrees were delicious. The service was fast and good. Our waitress was friendly and seemed sincerely concerned about how our experience was visiting south padre for the first time. We had to pay $10 to park but they give you a voucher which takes $10 off... More
