Our server instantly made us feel welcome and like a friend. Great recommendations and drinks. Awesome daily specials and fresh seafood. Will definitely be going back. We liked the blue side over the yellow side.

My wife and have date night twice a month and usually go to Katz 21 as there are not a lot of choices in Corpus Christi for a truly great dining experience but thought we would try a more causal evening on the Island. While the outside is rather plain and boning the food and service are anything but. What... More

This place was started by some of the Flower-children of yesteryear and turned out to be really excellent in recipes and brew. Usually a long line but worth the wait! Food is wholesome and plenty.

It is hard to find a creative restaurant in Corpus Christi but this restaurant fills the bill. The dishes are unique and creative. There are some great seafood creations that you would not find elsewhere in the area. Also the decor is very bohemian and makes you feel like you are on a cafe on the left bank of Paris.... More

Like other reviews the restaurant food was varied and delicious but have to say when we drove up we thought we must be in the wrong place. We realize it is a casual, beachy restaurant and are glad we didn't drive away! Friendly staff. Full bar. Definitely would go again next time we are in Corpus Christi.

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 food with watered down drinks, this is a place... 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
