Another great option on the island.

The seafood specials change daily, the drinks are good and the service is very attentive. I would definitely recommend this place to visitors in the area. Its not cheap but you definitely get good value for your money. Don't waste your time on those crappy large establishments that offer sub par... read more

My wife and I had dinner at The Dragonfly yesterday, March 25, 2015, and what a disappointment. We live on the Island and have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed the food and the waitstaff has always been more than attentive. We were seated in the bar area, as the hostess said the restaurant side had just seated... More

The food is all unique and nothing like you have ever tasted. Always order the special of the day because it is always special. The decor is suited and like none other - the paintings were all done by the chef. It is like you are in Europe and the size is just enough to keep it intimate. They serve... More

We like going to lunch at Dragonfly. Reasonably priced and good lunch specials. Wish that the menu would be expanded though as we have had everything on it. Great hummus!

This restaurant is well intentioned but the food is poorly executed. For the price you pay there are so many other options. Kiko's offers better flavor and if you want seafood, go to a seafood restaurant♡ Black Sheep Bistro in the same area was excellent♡

Eclectic menu both food and drinks. This visit had the mussels with fries on top. My husband had the grilled shrimp. So so incredibly yummy! I prefer this place for lunch rather than dinner, as it gets very crowded at dinner.

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 served with a flavorful sauce. The... 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
