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!

I was searching for a good seafood restaurant on the island and the only thing I could find were burger & fry joints. I came across this hidden gem. It is located in a tiny strip mall but don't let that deter you from entering. The inside is decorated with a lovely tropical theme and everyone seems eager to please.... More

The Snail Onglet here is fantastic. I also enjoy their Texas Fondue with Tortilla Chips. Dragonfly is a wonderful experience but I'm really hoping they add some servers soon. Consistently understaffed has been my observation.

Excellent food! Fun atmosphere. Decent service, i would say order a few tapas for your meal because it will be too hard to choose!
