Menu sounds promising, but doesn't deliver

We have eaten here 3-4 times over a few years. The food was only average again this time. The mussels were cooked in a sauce with little flavor, there were a lot of mussels some fries. The ribeye was large, undercooked (rare not med rare). The Amberjack, which I really like, was overlooked but... read more

Amazing food, good service and we go there frequently, especially if we have visitors. It's probably the best restaurant on North Padre Island with interesting, gourmet food selections.

I am a regular diner here and the food and atmosphere is always consistently good. I must say the friendliness is helpful and their experimentation with infusing drinks and cocktails is fun, but for a city starving for true European Cuisine, this is a must-go. Rick's dishes are unparalleled on the island. I can say that most everything on the... More

About a few weeks ago I went to this restaurant with two friends toward closing on a Saturday night. Since we arrived about 45 minutes before the place closed, there weren't a whole lot of people there. The service was extremely friendly, and the food was incredible. I had a steak dinner that came with fries, and it was served... More

It's a little bit of a drive for us but sooo worth it. Everything in Kingsville and Corpus seems to be the same after a while...lousy service, mediocre food. Not so here. It's a little expensive but so worth it, very casual atmosphere inside so very cozy for a stop in for lunch. We usually share the mac and cheese... More

This place is great! Took the wife here for our first date night in Corpus and we were a little over dressed (definitely more of a chill atmosphere at this place, like flip flops, board shorts and tank top chill). Didn't matter though, cause the food was awesome. We tried the fried stuffed jalapeños with chorizo which was ridiculously good!!!!... More

I have no idea how this is not the #1 rated place in Corpus Christi. The food is amazing and the place has a nice feel to it. The specials are always good and they have recently expanded their menu. If you are unsure of what to try, my three favorite things are the tomato basil soup, the chicken and... More

We had an excellent server! She was charming, friendly and enjoyable. The food was only average. I ordered the lasagna. It came with no bread, no salad, nothing. Just the lasagna. I asked to order a side dish, and was told the chef will not allow them to sell side dishes because then the count will be off. ODD!! There... More

We live on the Island and have been frequenting the Dragonfly for years. The food is consistently great and there are always surprising specials. When not in the mood for a full meal we love the tapas accompanied by a cup of their lovely basil tomato soup. The meals are quite large, enough to share or plenty left over to... More

Ate at Dragonfly based on fab trip advisor reviews. There was a long wait, as reported, but food was so worth it! Casual island-type decor, great staff. We will definitely return!
