First (last) visit to check out this place. Friendly wait staff and eclectic decor; the initial impression was favorable but unfortunately it was downhill from there. We saw the food being cooked in microwaves and the monk fish I ordered was rubbery while the veggies were not crisp. Detected a kind of mildew-type taste and smell to the sauce on... More

It's been awhile since we've eaten here. They recently switched to an all tapas format with some bigger plates too. The prices are fairly reasonable for upscale food selection. I wouldn't describe the food and drinks as outstanding. It's good enough for a touristy island. The decor and setting are kitschy colorful. So the restaurant has a party atmosphere. Quiet... More

We couldn't quite figure out what this place was trying to be. It's billed as a French restaurant, decorated like a Mexican restaurant, and has a menu of a seafood restaurant. The food was delicious. I had the crabcakes which were fresh and cooked perfectly. My friends tried the lobster Mac n cheese and the tomato basil soup. The soup... More

We were on Padre Island at the end of the season; Dragonfly was having its last summer weekend before taking a two week vacation. Even so, the complete menu was on offer --everything was fresh and plentiful, service was excellent -- so a very satisfying evening. On entering we were taken with the colorful and somewhat typical "island dive" decor... More

I had the goat cheese salad--my salad had large pieces of bread with cheese sitting on top of the salad--yummy. Hubby had the pork belly which was also delicious. Both of us truly enjoyed our meals.

This restaurant is out on Padre Island over the causeway. It worth the drive if you have time. The eclectic menu has some good seafood and such dishes as fried polenta and bacon basket, chicken croc in red wine. The tap beer is good. It a truly different dining experience in Corpus Christ
